Sony’s NGP may offer 3G in some areas, but it is not a phone, and this detail is something SCEE boss Andrew House said the firm “deliberately,” avoided.
“We think that voice capability carries with it a whole other set of expectations, and we want this to be first and foremost the ultimate gaming experience,” he said.
“We’ve elected not to complicate that proposition overly by trying to have it be all things to all people including voice and a conventional phone. Clearly [PlayStation Suite] addresses an already vibrant phone marketplace that serves that consumer very well.”
Kaz Hirai said earlier PlayStation Suite will launch later this year and will bring classic PSone content to Android phones.
