HTC has become the first company outside of Sony to receive PlayStation Certification for their smartphones.  Announced, not coincidentally during E3, this means that future HTC handsets will be able to play official Sony Playstation titles.  What’s more, today’s current HTC One series of devices are the first to join the party, including the HTC One X, HTC One S, and HTC One V.

“HTC is focused on delivering innovative mobile experiences for people everywhere and SCE’s immersive world of gaming will bring compelling entertainment to HTC One customers across the globe,” said Kouji Kodera, Chief Product Officer, HTC Corporation.

In a related note, Sony has re-branded the PlayStation Suite of games to a more universal PlayStation Mobile.  Looking ahead, Sony indicates that we’ll see the first games enter the market which have been developed using the PlayStation Mobile SDK.
