Sony discontinuing PlayStation Mobile for Android

Sony Logo - PlayStation Mobile

Sony today has officially announced its plans to discontinue the PlayStation Mobile service for Android. This service allowed certified devices to access exclusive mobile content and older console titles on their smartphones and tablets. The ditching of PlayStation Mobile also means that the company will no longer launch devices that are “PlayStation Certified”.

As for the existing users of the service, Sony claims that PlayStation Mobile will be functional for devices running Android 4.4.2 or lower. But smartphones on Android 4.4.3 and above might face some issues with functionality. The upcoming Android L release will have zero support for the service, thus marking the death of the service. So if you’re currently a user of the service, you might still be able to use it until the Android L update arrives.

PlayStation Mobile never really took off for the manufacturer largely due to the timing of the launch. And with the emergence of several big ticket developers like Gameloft, there were hardly any takers for Sony’s mobile gaming service.
