First revealed back in February 2011, the Sony PlayStation Mobile, previously known as PlayStation Suite, will get launched on October 3 this year, the Japanese company has said.

The new gaming platform will be initially locked to the PlayStation Vita handheld and select PlayStation Certified Android devices. The PlayStation Mobile will come with 30 different games right from the start. The games in question will include the familiar action, puzzle, sports and simulation genres, containing games developed by third party developers and publishers as well as SCE Worldwide Studios. Further content will be released frequently for PlayStation Mobile as new titles become available, Sony has said.

The company also announced that the PlayStation Mobile Developer Program – which includes the official version of PlayStation Mobile SDK – would become available to the development community in November. This will be rolled-out in a phased manner in 11 countries and regions including Japan, United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

“The PlayStation Mobile Developer Program will allow developers to easily distribute their content through PlayStation Store on a commercial basis and market their games to millions of dedicated gamers with PlayStation Certified devices and PlayStation Vita,” Sony said.
