Sony is determined to monitor the quality of games available through its PlayStation Mobile platform, raising the bar from the variable quality often found on mobile app stores. Now it has outlined plans on how to do it.
When its PlayStation Mobile suite finally hits Android and the PlayStation Vita, Sony wants quality stuff available. Not a lot of junk mixed in with the good stuff. Sony’s Jim Ryan said that the company is taking steps to ensure that, “anything that is offered on this platform is of proper PlayStation quality and that people feel comfortable and safe that they are not going to inadvertently stumble upon any of the junk that exists in that wider marketplace.”
Sony is able to restrict the developers who are allowed on the PlayStation Mobile store, which is currently in an open beta, so this can be accomplished. They are going for the sift approach first. “The dev kit is available to anyone who is interested in looking at it but we are actively evangelising in all sorts of ways to get the sort of content we want there for the launch,” said Ryan. If it leads to quality over quantity, this is a good thing indeed.
