Sony has officially launched PlayStation Mobile (PSM) for PlayStation Certified devices this morning, as expected. Select Sony Xperia and HTC One smartphones can now access the new PlayStation Mobile app, which replaces the previous PS Store app. PS Vita owners also have access to PSM. If you already had PS Store installed on your handset, you will be prompted to update the app when you click on it. If you don’t already have the PS Store app then you can download the apk directly from here.

As we have previously highlighted, PlayStation Mobile has dropped all of the PS one classics from the PlayStation Store and instead you get a collection of dedicated content. We’ve included some screens on what’s on PSM at the moment at various price points (from €0.50 to €12.99), new games will be added every Wednesday. All PSM games support the on-screen virtual DUALSHOCK controller. Highlights include Super Crate Box, Samurai Beatdown and audio app Beats Trellis.

You can see the full list of PlayStation Certified devices below, but more manufacturers have recently signed up to the programme including Asus, Fujitsu, Sharp and Wikipad. PlayStation Mobile is initially available in nine countries including Japan, United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Australia with more to follow.

  • Mike

    Can’t see it on my Xperia S

  • Installed on my XperiaPlay…don’t see any interesting games, also i think a video preview would be useful, not only images…
    For example, samurai Beatdown seems funny but i really would like to see how it runs…

  • Not all countries are supported.

  • Cain

    This is gonna flop… Im sorry but this is really a terrible idea. Old ps1 classics was a much better idea

  • it works on Arc S just so you know! Try it! :)

  • Samuel

    You might want to add HTC’s new One X+ to the list.

    But PS1 games would have indeed made it better a better platform.

  • Everyboy can already play them with FPse, so i guess it’s a good idea not include PS1 games…

  • Strange

    I hope games such as Patapon and Echochrome will be available on mobile.

  • Purusharth Dwivedi

    i downloaded it on xperia neo v it works perfectly although my phone is not certified…

  • christian miranda

    release the tekken

  • mondez

    Have the PS1 games been completely replaced then? These awful apps are all the PS content available?

  • Kaminori Chan

    i think SONY should put video for each game at PSM Store too if there’s not any…

  • Did u ever heard about FPse?…

  • we need a new and fresh Tekken, not the classic

  • This is just the beginning. Picture this like the App Store for iOS or Google Play for Android. This is Sonys own app environment and as time goes on we’ll be seeing more and more games and apps appear here. Developers who were going to port for Android have the incentive of doing PSM instead simply because of the lack of piracy compared to Android. The list of PSM supported developers is already pretty nice and will be growing too.

  • Old PS1 classics weren’t the best option on an all touchscreen environment. PS1 classics are already finding new life for Vita owners and this will be a brand new app environment for Sony to grow. I see big things for this and if it grows big enough, I hope they’ll release phones and tablets running the Vita OS, and these will be the apps for it.

  • why this app is not working on my xperia u it shows an error occured

  • why? any one tell me

  • Oh, i misunderstand! You are right!!!!!!!!! Also we need new “important” titles, like MGS, Gran Turismo, etc etc…

  • Well, I could successively install it on my Xperia Neo MT15i!

  • jag

    nice suggestion! please comment on their webpage so PSM can improve their store

  • mformitchell

  • Bring this store to New Zealand already!!!

  • Kris

  • Aleksandr Tyrenko
