Sony in “discussions” to expand PlayStation Suite platforms

Sony is actively exploring bringing its PlayStation Suite environment to other hardware manufacturer’s products.

PlayStation Suite “isn’t an ecosystem where we want to keep everything within the Sony family,” SCE chairman Kaz Hirai told Engadget.

Hirai said Sony is already “in discussions with non-Sony companies to bring them onboard,” but declined to name names until an official announcement can be made.

The Suite offers a cross-platform PlayStation-certified development and publishing environment. It’s compatible with three existing Android devices – Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Play, Sony Tablet S and Sony Tablet P. It is expected to expand to both Vita and PlayStation 3 in the future.

In February, Sony noted that it had an “open stance” to expanding the Suite to other platforms.
