HTC smartphones and tablets may get PlayStation certification first

HTC logoA new report claims HTC devices will receive PlayStation certification first. That doesn't exactly mean the Vita should be worried, though.

The Sony PlayStation mobile gaming empire could expand its borders to HTC gadgets next.

That's right, if a Pocket-lint report pans out, you'll be able to play PlayStation-branded game titles on on HTC smartphones and tablets soon.

My instant reaction to this nugget of potential news was joy and giddiness. Perhaps I'll be finally be able to enjoy a few PSP breaks during my daytime commute. Then cold hard reality set in when I realized PlayStation certified doesn't mean PSP certified.

Remember the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play? That was a device full of promise, billed to graft the fun of PlayStation gaming onto the power of Android--who could forget that creepy Super Bowl commercial.

Sadly the fictitious operation went wrong, and unfortunate mobile gamers lured into buying the Xperia Play soon learned that while games on the phone look flashy, they weren't the hot PSP titles they craved. Of course it makes sense that Sony wouldn't sprinkle its real magic on other manufacturers' phones, or even its own. You see cannibalism is taboo in marketing circles, too.
