ASUS tablets are now PlayStation certified, PlayStation Mobile games coming soon

While I’m not much of a gamer, I do love the classics like Mario and Sonic. And when I think of PlayStation, I fondly remember my days playing games like Crash Bandicoot – another classic from years ago. So if you are a lover of classic PlayStation games, and you own an ASUS tablet like the Eee Pad Transformer Prime or the Transformer Pad Infinity, you should be pleased to know that Sony just announced PlayStation certification for these devices.

What this means is that users of these tablets will soon be able to download a ton of games from PlayStation mobile directly onto these devices, without having to jump through the hoops of running emulators. What this also means is that, between NVIDIA’s TegraZone and now PlayStation Mobile, ASUS tablets are pretty much the number one choice for mobile gaming enthusiasts.

ASUS now joins HTC and Wikipad in being one of the few Android manufacturers besides Sony to have access to these games – and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

You know, I always seem to preface any statement I make about games with, “I’m not much of a gamer.” However, as I download and enjoy more and more games on my tablet, perhaps I should start changing my tune just a bit.
