    Sony reveals PlayStation Suite framework, store for Android gaming -- Engadget

    So, Sony just made a VERY bold move. In short, they've announced a new gaming framework and store for Android. This is huge and will do nothing but help further push gaming on Android (which is a large and very profitable market in itself, look at iOS).

    It would behoove HP to partner with Sony in a way that brought this new framework to webOS for its new lineup of tablets and phones.

    Thoughts?

    What does Android bring to the table? The devices.
    Right, massive amounts of devices and market-share and projected growth. That doesn't actually answer my question - at this point in time, what does HP bring to the table?

    You could say "the devices" but by that logic, a tie-in with Windows 7 phone makes as much sense or blackberry.

    Depending on what we see on the 9th, HP's line-up might have some potential but equally it could be simply another also-ran like WP7 seems to be. At the moment, there does not seem to be an upside for Sony to split their focus in that way. Maybe in a couple of years, if WebOS became successful.

    For Sony, it's more exposure, which is what they need. For HP, it's a possible quick avenue to adoption.

    Currently, as of today, HP has nothing to offer (at least publicly). Of course, my idea is based purely off speculation that HP will in fact release/announce something on 2/9 that's actually worthy in todays market, if that's the case then I full-heartedly believe they should be all over this.

    Looking further into the actual announcement, I don't see any chance of this, they have throw everything in with Android - to change this at such an early stage would be very odd.

    I would love if HP would work with Sony, but they are going to have to gain serious momentum with HP webOS for that to happen. I love what Sony is doing, and I think it might be the next breakthrough in the mobile space.

    Sounds like Palm needs to whip up a PSP...DK. It's a-portin' time!

    The onus should be on HP and Palm. Sony is hitching their wagon to one of the biggest platforms around, and it doesn't make any sort of sense for them to split their development efforts and focus elsewhere right now.

    I will say I think the Gingerbread/2.3 requirement is going to be a problem. Almost no devices have it and very few were announced at CES shipping with it (none of the "4g" handsets for AT&T and Verizon, for example). Samsung is still struggling to get stable Froyo builds out to US Galaxy S devices, and that's several million handsets off the table for Sony.

    I still don't get why sony didn't put a damn antena on a psp two years ago and call it a day. With out a game pad what sony games can you or would you want to play? I know the expiria has a game pad but most people will assume that they will be able to get sony games on their stock android phones. Sony has been dropping the ball since the playstation 2 and I am predicting fail. Don't they know that android users don't buy anything! That's like steam only advertising on the pirate bay.

    new psp with quad core sounds dreamy though.

    I interpreted the Playstation Suite as a portable SDK for Android and Sony devices. Palm would need to make a complement SDK to make those games portable to WebOS devices (like they did with the iOS SDK and the PDK) to make the partners willing to spend a week porting a game out on a WebOS device.

    The alternative is as everyone else is pointing out, Sony releasing the SDK for WebOS. Which would make it really easy for their partners to port the game over. I don't see this happening until the partners demand the expansion.
    I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess.

    Sony's next PSP, codenamed NGP -- Engadget
    The thing comes with a quad-core CPU?!? Hmm, guess what kinds of phones we'll be seeing next year...

    Although it still doesn't beat the 3DS for me.
