Recognisable Developers Flock to PlayStation Mobile

Despite being designed for bedroom programmers and indie outfits, a host of recognisable names have signed up to take advantage of Sony’s innovative cross-platform initiative, PlayStation Mobile. Notable publishers include Team 17, SEGA, THQ and Tecmo Koei.

The big names will be accompanied by an array of smaller developers, including Futurlab, Laughing Jackal and Honey Slug. Unsurprisingly, all three teams have been big proponents of the PlayStation Minis platform in the past.

PlayStation Mobile is Sony’s response to the popularity of smartphone gaming, delivering digestible experiences playable on a range of different devices. Titles will work on the Vita, as well as certified Android phones and tablet devices. You’ll only need to invest in a game once to access it on any gadget.

The platform is currently undergoing a rather rigorous beta, but it's expected to launch later this year. Feel free to peruse the full list of on-board developers and publishers below.
