The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play will not be the only Android phone out there that runs PlayStation games. NVIDIA announced that Tegra 2 powered smartphones and tablets will be getting the PlayStation Suite, the software platform that allows PlayStation games to run on droids.
There's no info on which Tegra 2 powered devices would be PlayStation certified (certification is used Sony to ensure quality gaming experience) but the recent high-end droids (both phones and tablets) that use NVIDIA's hardware all have enough processing power to run the games, so there shouldn't be any problems on the hardware side.
Except, of course, none of them have the dedicated gaming controls that the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play has - the PlayStation Suite handles that by emulating the controls on screen.
Several PlayStation 1 classics are coming later this year, including Wild Arms, Cool Boarders 2, and Syphon Filter. Later on, PlayStation 2 games will be added as well, which will really enrich the game library.
The announcement came over the TegraZone app, so keep an eye on it for updates.
