Sony has been making efforts to broaden the market for its PlayStation mobile initiative, and on August 15 the company made another move towards its goal by signing a partnership deal with two other industry players. Sony’s Computer Entertainment Europe division in Japan announced that PlayStation mobile will soon be made available on the Wikipad and will get some support from Asus the hardware developer.
PlayStation Mobile, which is Sony’s program that was meant for Android devices to make them run PlayStation games, has been available exclusively on Sony’s own Android devices like the Tablet S and only after the company struck a similar deal with HTC did is start being made for other brands as well. Anyway, now the developers that brought you franchises like the Nexus 7 or“Google tablet,” as some call it, have partnered with Sony.
This partnership deal could be mutually beneficiary in the long run, considering that the cloud service that Wikipad was partnered with was bought by Sony, so it might also be a good thing for WIkipad that they formed a partnership with the company that now owns their Cloud service provider. Other benefits include that Asus’ tablets will have access to a lot of gaming content from the Cloud and even better gameplay because of the game controller and what not. Currently Asus has two tablets on the market, the Nexus 7, and the Transformer Prime Infinity TF700T, which according to many reports has the most powerful processor ever on a tablet. These two tablets will both have the hardware and power to run high-end games that were usually found on consoles only.
