Android Marketplace sporting PSOne Classics

By Brenna Hillier, Friday, 1 April 2011 06:29 GMT

Cool Boarders 2, Destruction Derby and other PSOne Classic titles have turned up on the Android marketplace, but unless you’ve already got your hands on an Xperia Play, they’re of no use to you.

Droid Gamers noticed the Marketplace additions, which also include Syphon Filter, Medievil and Jumping Flash.

Each game goes for £3.99, $6.38 or AU $6.21. Several language options are available.

The newly released games are exclusively compatible with the Xperia Play, as the first PlayStation Suite certified smartphone.

Unfortunately, the device’s UK launch has been delayed due to a “freight issue”, making the apps almost totally useless for the moment.

Thanks, Joystiq.
