Playstation games coming to some, not all Android devices. Sony has announced, via it's partner; NVidia, that Android devices will be getting Sony's mobile-orientent games platform; Playstation Suite. Which will supposedly support not only select Playstation 1 titles, but also select Playstation 2 titles via emulation.

There will be certain requirements handsets will need to meet to be eligible to have access to the Playstation Suite, however. Only devices powered by NVidia's "Tegra" mobile chipsets will be able to get access, with the already mentioned Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" firmware requirement. Most Android handsets do not contain Tegra chips.

The Playstation Suite is Sony's gaming-orientated gaming platform for mobile video games on the Android smartphone operating system. It will appear on "Playstation Certified" mobile handsets, with the upcoming Xperia Play being the first such handset. The service is set to launch sometime this year. @androidandme.com
