At it's big PlayStation event held today in Tokyo, Sony has revealed a program whereby "certified" PlayStation games will be made available for mobile phones.

Rather than be tied to a single device, like we've been seeing all along, Sony is calling this idea "PlayStation Suite", a mobile gaming platform of sorts designed for Android mobile phones.

With games bearing a "PlayStation Certified" tag, it aims to bring titles like original PS1 games (or their equivalent, we suppose?) to mobiles in a "hardware neutral game framework".

Among the first PS1 games to launch on the service will be Wild Arms, Cool Boarders 2, Rally cross, Medievil and Syphon Filter.

While designed for Android phones, the "PlayStation Suite" titles will also be available on the PSP2.

We'll get you more details - including what role the "PlayStation Phone" plays in all this - as they come to hand.

Does iPhone and WP7 scare them that much to make this exclusive to Android? Or is this Google's courtship?

I'll hold out for more info, but it doesn't sound all that useful with a PSX emulator already popular for Android. Unless they start killing that app ...
