Sony has announced PlayStation Suite, a new service which will deliver classic PSone content to Android smartphone devices.

Speaking at a press event in Tokyo, Sony boss Kaz Hirai promised that the service, which launches later this year, will bring "Legendary original PlayStation content" to mobiles. No specific titles were announced, but a snowboarding game was briefly demoed, with a virtual D-pad and buttons clearly displayed on the phone screen.

A service called PlayStation Certified will help developers with testing and quality assurance.

Hirai promised a "hardware-neutral game framework" that enables "PlayStation-quality" content to made for all kinds of mobile hardware.

"We envision PlayStation Suite as an initiative that is essential to the world of portable entertainment," he insisted.
