PlayStation One Games Coming to Android

Sony officially announce a new PlayStation Suite Service, which allows Android users to play their favourite PSOne games.

Sony today officially unveiled their new PlayStation Suite service, which will be available later this year. The PlayStation Suite service will allow users of select Android-based systems to utilize the service in order to play their favourite PlayStation One games. This will also include non-Sony devices, giving the company a wider audience to target.

The PlayStation Suite is set to launch later this year, and while plans for future compatibility are unknown at this time, Sony has commented to say that it will be "starting" with PlayStation One games, hinting at the potential for compatibility with other platforms' games or even brand new titles. The PlayStation Suite will also feature on some of Sony's upcoming devices, including the upcoming successor to the PSP.

Developers Could Hold The PSP2

Claims have recently been made that PSP2 hardware is possessed by several developers.

The PSP has been around for almost six years since its launch in Japan on December 12, 2004. Worldwide the PSP has sold over 60 million units. For a while now, people have wanted to see or hear about an upcoming PSP2. Not a new model, but a completely new unit. There have been claims from developers like NetherRealm Studios that they actually possess PSP2 hardware. There is no way to tell when a PSP2 will come out, however. It's great to know that Sony is listening to their buyers as they have begged for a PSP2 for almost 2 years now.

No software or hardware has been revealed. We can only listen to rumors and decide if we want to believe them. A popular rumor mentions that the PSP2 will have touch-sensitive buttons. Others think the PSP2 will have phone qualities like texting or even calling ability. None of the information has been confirmed.

So, for right now, don't get too hyped up about a PSP2 from rumors. Gamers should expect some confirmed information, from Sony, soon. However, this might take a couple of months.

Atlus Co. Dissolved, Absorbed by Index Holdings

Developer and publisher of the Megami Tensei meta-series to be absorbed by parent company and merged with fellow subsidiary October 1st.

Another Japanese developer has been dissolved today. Following developers such as Cavia and Feelplus comes word that Atlus, developer of Shin Megami Tensei, Etrian Oddysey, and Trauma Center, will cease to exist as an independent developer as of October 1st. Parent company Index Holdings, whom acquired Atlus in 2006 following their very successful RPG/Social Sim hybrid Persona 3, announced that the current staff will be merged with another of Index Holdings's subsidiaries, mobile developer Index. The dissolution of Atlus and its fusion with Index is said to best "leverage" the stable of properties Atlus has created over the last two and a half decades, as well as the Atlus brand name itself.

Given Index's focus on mobile games and the recent announcement of Persona 3 Social, a mobile spin-off, one could assume this will lead to an increased number of such games featuring Atlus's intellectual properties. Details beyond that are scarce at best, however. While the Atlus brand name will continue to be used for publishing, there's been no word on how this will affect day-to-day operations and future projects. Speaking with Gamasutra, Atlus USA Public Relations and Sales Manager, Aram Jabbari, declined to comment on how this may affect the North American publishing branch. Gamasutra reports that we can look forward to an official statement soon, however in the meantime the "Atlus Faithful" are sure to be on pins and needles.

Sony Looking to Implement Online Passes in Future Games?

In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Sony of Europe's President, Andrew House, shared his thoughts on EA's and THQ's recent efforts to counter used game sales.

One of the more controversial topics of the past year has been EA's "Project Ten Dollar." A system designed to, in part, combat used video games sales, Project Ten Dollar sees the removal of online-enabled portions of select games such as Mass Effect 2 and Madden NFL 11. These portions are then made as premium downloads, costing between $5 and $15, which customers must purchase before being able to play their game online or accessing specific, online-oriented content such as roster updates or DLC expansions. This fee is waived for customers that purchase the game new via a one-time use code included inside the game box.

While EA's intents were and are obvious, the number of inconveniences imposed on customers by Project Ten Dollar speak for themselves. Concerns were raised again when Ubisoft, having taken heavy criticism for the ridiculous DRM (Digital Rights Management) used in the PC version of Assassin's Creed II, went on record that they were carefully watching EA's efforts and stated that they would probably follow suit in the future. Thus far Ubisoft has yet to implement an online pass system into their games, however publisher THQ was quick to act, adding an online pass to May's UFC Undisputed 2010.

Now it seems it may be Sony's turn. Speaking with GamesIndustry, Andrew House, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, expressed support for EA and THQ's online pass structure when asked about it and rumors that Activision will eventually charge for Call of Duty's multiplayer. "On the principle of making online portions of the game available or unlocked from the disc-based release for a fee, we're broadly supportive of that. And we're exploring actively the same option for our own content," House said. "In terms of just a charge for basic online play, thats something that we have to talk about a lot more and we struggle with a little bit because we feel very vindicated and base a lot of the success of PSN today - a 70 per cent connection rate across consoles - on the fact that weҒve removed that major initial barrier to entry."

Should these plans lead to games such as SOCOM 4, Resistance 3, Killzone 3, or MLB 11: The Show having online passes, it wouldn't be Sony's first attempt at combating used sales and pirates in this manner. Two PlayStation Portable games, ModNation Racers and SOCOM: U.S. Navy Seals Fireteam Bravo 3, have already used online "entitlement codes" required in order to play them online. This would, however, open the proverbial floodgates with third-party publishers wasting no time following Sony's lead -- at least on the PlayStation 3.
