NVIDIA: PS2 games coming to Android

And Xperia Play?

PlayStation 2 games will launch on Android devices, according to NVIDIA.

Website Androidandme noticed NVIDIA's Tegra Zone app updated with an announcement relating to Sony's hardware neutral game framework PS Suite.

The thrust of the release concerned the announcement that the Suite will come to Tegra-equipped Android phones and tablets later this year - the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, due out later this month, was previously the only device confirmed to offer PlayStation titles.

PlayStation certified games to hit Tegra devices include PSone classics Wild Arms, Cool Boarders 2 and Syphon Filter.

But buried within the announcement is a mention that PlayStation 2 games will eventually be released on Android devices – and current speculation suggests they'll turn up on the Xperia Play.

Tech website Endgadget, however, said PS2 games are unlikely to arrive on Xperia Play any time soon because of a lack of horsepower. Sony, it says, could be waiting for quad-core mobile chips to arrive.
