Tegra 2 Android devices to have Playstation suite in 2011
posted by Alan F. / Mar 10, 2011, 11:23 PM
While no launch date has been announced, Sony has decided to not only support the Suite but will also allow for development of non Playstation content. And when it does launch, Android users will be able to unistall the Playstation emulator and send it packing back to the Android Market. Besides allowing non Playstation games to be played, Sony will try to offer Playstation 2 titles in the Suite.
All in all, it is a very important forward step for Android as Google's open source OS becomes a viable video game platform.
@george, it will probably support any multi-processor chipset considering that Qualcomm and Samsung have their own Dual-core solutions. But the main reason is just CPU power. You don't run PS2 games on an Atari and you don't run Unreal graphics on a phone with a single core processor and weak video chipset. Just makes sense and makes it easier for developers to bring new content to the 'Zone'.

It'll probably come to single core devices as well considering that the xperia play is a single core. the xperia play has a 1ghz Snapdragon processor and 512mb ram. My guess is that most phones that follows these specs would get ps suite. however, it's not as simple as having a 1ghz processor. xperia play has a very new revision of qualcoms snap dragon, even though it runs at 1ghz, it'll have much better performance than a nexus one. some phones with newer snap dragons are the G2 and the Thunderbolt. I don't know if either of these will get it. another said requirement is Android Gingerbread 2.3

The Tegra 2 has 2 cores both clocked at 1ghz with a 1MB cache. It can use up to 1gb of DDR2 ram. The PS2 had a freaking 299Mhz processor and only 32mb of RDRAM. You do the Math :P This processor has some serious power. And in a mobile device it is more than capable of running PS2 games. The chip alone can kick out full 1080p video playback at 27FPS The GPU has 8 cores xD And the only reason they are releasing an official PS2 emulator is cause Sony KNOW that it will work. They KNOW that it will stable and they KNOW that they can make a fortune from it. The Motorola Xoom & Samsung Galaxy 10.1 have the Tegra 2 chip, also sporting Android 3.0 (Formally known as Honeycomb) These tabs are going to woop Apples ass when it comes down to mobile gaming. Go on Android GET EM!!!!

oh yeah ... sure new tabs are kicking apples ass , its funny that apple make his own !! A4 processor while samsung and tegra providing quadcore processor :)))) maybe called cortex 10 ! back in 2004 and 2006 apple was the prioneer , but when company(apple) realsed 3 phone with actually no improvement in cpu and gpu chipset shows that ittake advantage of ppl's pocket ! sure if apple contniue with this lazy technology will be failed in whole part of market .
