PlayStation Mobile hits Android and Vita worldwide on October 3rd, with 30 games at launch

Sony's PlayStation Mobile will swing open its virtual doors on October 3rd, with 30 bite-size games available from the off.

PlayStation Mobile, if you forgot, is the platform for PlayStation Certified Android phones and tablets on which Sony will sell a curated collection of mobile games via a PlayStation Store app.

It's a top-to-bottom reboot of the PlayStation Suite idea that unceremoniously fizzled out and died.

Most of Sony's own phones and tablets will have access to the PlayStation Mobile platform, of course, as will the PlayStation Vita.

Furthermore, it was announced at E3 that HTC would be the first non-Sony company to produce PlayStation Certified handsets. And at Sony's pre-TGS conference this morning, it was confirmed that Sharp and Fujitsu will also support the PlayStation Mobile service on some of their devices.

The PlayStation Mobile shop will launch in Japan, the US, Canada, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Australia on October 3rd. Sony says it will have 30 games available at launch - priced between 50 yen and 850 yen (about 50p - £7) - but hasn't yet named any of the titles.

We do know, however, that the following PlayStation Mobile titles are scheduled to debut sometime in 2012: Aqua Kitty, Flick Hockey, Frederic - Resurrection of Music, Panic, Passing Time, Samurai Beatdown, Slidinbeats, Super Crate Box, Tipper, Tractor Trails, and Twist Pilot.

Finally, Sony will distribute a PlayStation Mobile SDK in November, so any budding indie developer can try and get a game on the service. The SDK comes with a $99.99 annual cost - the same as Apple's iOS developer licence.

Team 17 are a developer, so hopefully they will release a proper, button controlled, online play enabled Worms. Port of Open Warfare 2 will be fine, as I was in the top 100 worldwide on the DS 8-D

Good to see they're bringing themselves a bit more up to date. That's good for Sony.

But all these different app stores can't be good for the Android user-experience, can it? (Genuine question, I'm not being sarcastic)
