Sony Reportedly Making Android-Based PlayStation Phone

Engadget reports Sony is Planning a PlayStation Phone based on the Android Operating System.

After long-term speculation about a potential PlayStation phone, Engadget has today released a report claiming that Sony-Ericsson is presently working on a phone based on the Android Operating System.

Rumored to be a cross between the PSP Go and the Samsung Captivate, early mock-ups seem to suggest a mobile phone appearance with the PSP's d-pad and button layout in a slide-out keypad. PSP-capable titles such as God of War and LittleBigPlanet are said to be cross-compatible with the new device, while non-PSP releases, such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, could be "on tap" for the mobile device.

Sony has yet to confirm that the phone is in the works, but could be waiting for either Gamescon or the Tokyo Game Show to announce the new device.

Amazon Tries Their Hand With Kindle Games

Online retailer Amazon has developed and released two free word games for their Kindle e-book reader.

It sounds odd having games available for a device specifically marketed as a storage device for electronic books, but that's exactly what happened last week. Further proof that the gaming industry's appeal has escaped only a few, Amazon has decided to test the waters with two very appropriate games: Every Word, a variation of Boggle in which players try to make as many words they can using certain letters in a set amount of time, and Shuffled Row, a single-player variation of Scrabble.

The games are currently only compatible with Kindle devices, not the Kindle applications for devices such as Apple's iPhone or iPad. Siliconera's Ishaan also reports that the games are only available in the United States, so this appears to be a very small trial.

Google Reportedly Working on New Social Network

Search Engine giant Google reportedly working on new social gaming network to compete with Facebook.

Hot on the heels of the news that GameStop has acquired Kongregate comes news that Google is planning to launch their own social networking venture aimed at social gaming.

In a news release published by the Wall Street Journal, reports surfaced that Google were in talks with game developers Playdom, EA's Playfish, and Zynga to help build a base of games for the launch of their new service. This supplements a previous report of Google "secretly" investing $100 Million into Zynga as part of a strategic partnership for the upcoming service.

Google, meanwhile, have remained silent on the matter of their alleged new social network, saying that the world "doesn't need another Facebook knockoff." This comment brought further speculation that the new gaming service would be another tie-in to existing Google Accounts, a fact that also suggests potential native Android capabilities which would allow Android users easy access to the service.

At present, no time frame, specifics or confirmation has been released by Google.

3G Network Connections May Come to Next-Generation Portables

According to the Wall Street Journal, Japanese wireless carrier NTT DoCoMo Inc. is presently in talks with as yet unnamed "videogame-device makers" to bring 3G to future hand-held devices.

Nintendo and Sony both, unsurprisingly, declined to comment. While merely a rumor as-is, Nintendo of America President's Reggie Fils-Aime has stated previously that Nintendo plans to expand upon and improve its online services. Nintendo's President, Satoru Iwata, also commented on the way Amazon has set up their Kindle e-book reader. Enabling the upcoming Nintendo 3DS to connect to 3G networks would certainly be a good first step forward.

Sony is no stranger to 3G networks, already having numerous 3G-enabled devices such as e-book readers. "Yusuke Tsunoda, an analyst at Tokai Tokyo Research Center, said talks of a carrier partnership are a sign that the videogame-hardware makers are feeling the pressure from smartphones, which are used to download and play simple games," reports the Wall Street Journal. Considering the success of mobile games in Japan and Nintendo declaring Apple's products, such as the iPad, the enemy of the future, it seems to be more a matter of when than if.
