HTC looks set to add to its already impressive array of smartphone credentials with new rumours suggesting the Taiwanese manufacturer is to add PlayStation Certification to future handsets.
Having already attacked the mobile audio market with the introduction of Beats Audio technologies, latest reports have suggested HTC is on the verge of targeting the smartphone gaming scene.
Whilst Sony made a number of its own branded Android devices 'PlayStation Certified' during 2011, the introduction of PlayStation Certified HTC handsets running Google's OS would mark the first cross brand move from the gaming supplier.
Those devices with official PlayStation Certification will see users granted access to a host of mobile converted vintage PSOne games such as Crash Bandicoot. Far from confirmed, it has been suggested HTC will make the announcement as early as this month's Mobile World Congress showcase in Barcelona.
