PlayStation mobile store finally launches for Sony and HTC devices
Sony had told us it was coming, and it is finally here. The PlayStation Mobile store has finally launched for the PS Vita, as well as the stable of Sony devices and a number of Android devices by the only other partner on this plan, HTC. 

The devices that are compatible with the PlayStation Mobile store are: Xperia Play, Xperia Arc, Xperia S, Xperia Ion, Xperia Acro, Xperia Acro HD, Sony Tablet S, Sony Tablet P and HTC One X, One S and One V, as well as the One X+ when it becomes available. Users with those devices can download the PlayStation store, and will get access to 20 launch title games. 

Unfortunately, the set of launch titles doesn't really have any of the big name PlayStation titles that you might hope for. Instead, the launch titles are: Super Crate Box, Twist Pilot, Rebel, Fuel Tiracas, Aqua Kitty, Defender, Underline, Samurai Beatdown, Beats Slider, Hungary Giraffe, Tractor Trails, Word Blocked, Flick Hockey, Beats Trellis, Wipe!, Nyoqix, Magic Arrows, Everybody’s Arcade, Numblast, Loot the Land, Frederic – Resurrection of Music and Incurvio. 

There are some good games in there, but certainly nothing on the level of a LittleBigPlanet or Uncharted, which is to be expected, but still disappointing. Now, we're hoping some other manufacturers join the program. It would be nice to see the PlayStation Mobile store on Samsung devices, or Asus tablets.

There have been some reports of incompatibility when people have tried to install the store, but eventually those bugs will be worked out. The store should be available to users in Japan, US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Australia.

Read this on Flip Board this morning....

But I'm surprised Sony is expanding support to HTC phones.

The app is not working on ANY HTC phone yet. Look at their website before you start complaining. The EVO is one of Sprint's flagships and will not be left behind.

Other HTC owners (One X, One S...) are getting the same error message as the EVO LTE. Chill out, its coming.

because those are their international phone, they will have it at a later date. Stop your crying.

HTC EVO LTE is a Sprint exclusive and it is not offered outside of US. I think many people thought it was a variation of the One series, but I guess that not the case.

naa its actually a successor of the original evo, that jus so happens to have better specs the one x! thats really what it is......some people think its apart of the one line but it really isnt.....its an evo and a damn good one at that

Just tried the app on my One X. An error has occured. (8008103E)

The web site still shows the HTC devices "Details to be announced later on", I guess the app won't exactly work on HTC phones yet.

i think this is again region specific, and the available games just doesn't suit my taste (or maybe any other gamer's taste) i would like to have tekken in my xperia s or s3, but i know it won't happen soon that is why i hold on to my iphone 4s. then came street fighter vs tekken...installed it in my 4s and i'm a happy man
