Will HTC’s future phones be PlayStation certified?


So, you love to play games on your phone and the PS3 is your favorite console, but the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play just didn't hit your technical sweet tooth, huh? 

No problem! If a new report is to be believed, you won't have to decide between the Play and not tying your phone into the PlayStation Network. That new report details that HTC may start producing PlayStation-certified phones in 2012, thereby removing Sony's distinction as the only manufacturer to offer such a thing. 

By offering PlayStation certification on other manufacturers' devices, we could see a lot more support for the PSN mobile platform. That basically means more games from Sony because more people can play them. 

On the flip side, this was a big selling point for Sony; a phone that can also play games would appease to the gaming crowd, which is a pretty large crowd, to say the least. 

Of course, this is just a rumor. I honestly don't know how I feel about it, either. Like I said, Sony would be losing a major selling point for its own devices, but in turn, would be upping the members for its PlayStation Network. 

Choices. What are your thoughts on this?
