Sony’s ambitious mobile strategy, PlayStation Suite, will go into open beta next month, the Japanese giant has confirmed. The forward thinking initiative will theoretically allow publishers to bring PlayStation-quality content to multiple compatible mobile handsets. It’s part of Sony’s wider plan to combat the growing popularity of smartphone gaming.
A closed beta for the service kicked off last year in Japan, the US and the UK, but Sony’s looking to branch outside of those regions for the open beta.
A full release of the software development kit is due later this year for a lowly $99. The full service launch is expected shortly thereafter.
