The history of PlayStation Certification is brief. Initially, only the Sony Xperia Play had it. That allowed the Play to access PlayStation’s exclusive Android content and play PlayStation games. It was pretty cool, but people really wanted it on other devices. HTC was the first to listen by getting three devices certified. Now, three more are getting certified.

Some time ago, HTC got the One V, the One S, and the One X certified. This gave HTC devices the ability to access the PlayStation content for the first time. However, over the last couple of weeks, HTC has gotten PlayStation Certification for three more of their top tier devices. These include the One XL, the new One X+, and the insanely popular EVO 4G LTE on Sprint.

What will PlayStation Certification do for HTC devices?

It will allow them to play exclusive PlayStation games from Sony’s PlayStation Mobile store. There aren’t a lot of games in Sony’s PlayStation Mobile store yet, but the number is growing. It will be a lot better as time goes than it is right now.

Interestingly, the three devices don’t show up on Sony’s compatibility list yet. However, Phone Arena reports that everyone is working on making it happen as quickly as possible.

HTC owners, are you excited about getting PlayStation mobile? Or is the lack of quality games make it not a big deal?

      Yeah, they said the devices haven’t been fully integrated yet so it might take some time to get everything working :)

        Oh, I went to PS Mobile download site for, well, PS Mobile, lol, and in regards to HTC phones, it says so far that X, S, and V are supported, but JellyBean 4.1 or higher is required. Soooo…Still waiting impatiently for that update, got a OneX with Tegra.
