Sony Talking With Third Parties To Offer PlayStation-Certified Devices

During an on-stage conversation with Walt Mossberg at Hong Kong's AsiaD conference, Sony Computer Entertainment chairman Kaz Hirai revealed that Sony is in active talks with third-party phone makers who are interested in offering PlayStation-certified Android devices not made by Sony.

"This isn't an ecosystem where we want to keep everything within the Sony family," he said.

"That's the beauty of Android," he added. "We're in discussions with non-Sony companies to bring them onboard. We'll make those announcements when it's time to go public with it. This is not just for Sony devices."

The first PlayStation-certified was Sony's own Xperia Play which sold much less than expected. Sony's recently released Sony Tablet S as well as its upcoming dual screen Sony Tablet P are the only other PlayStation-certified to date.
