Sony's Xperia S Android phone finally gets access to the PlayStation Store
Sony has announced that its flagship Android phone, the Xperia S, is finally ready to access games in the PlayStation Store.
Bafflingly, the Xperia S shipped with a PlayStation Store placeholder before hitting store shelves in Europe, but users can now download the storefront along with the PS Pocket app. The Japanese version of the phone, the Acro HD, also has just been granted access, Android Central reports.
Currently, the Xperia S has access to around a dozen titles in the PlayStation store, though Engadget points out that some still require the use of an Xperia Play.
Features of the Sony Xperia S include a 4.3-inch display, 1.5GHz dual-core CPU and a massive 12 megapixel camera running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Sony is planning to bring PlayStation certification to all its 2012 phones, including the newly announced Xperia Sola, but it's becoming harder and harder to see why anyone would be willing to pay for this half-baked gaming service.
