Android 3.0 + PSP

Sony has been on a winning streak of managing the world’s best game studios that make the world’s best video games.

Google’s Android is, to many tech enthusiasts such as myself, the world’s best smartphone and tablet OS. I’ve got an Evo, and that device is absolutely amazing, particularly the OS, and the apps, they are really, really amazing – except the games are mediocre).

Combining the two has been a long time fantasy, and apparently, according to Engadget, that’s actually happening.


One worrisome quote I see:

“Games will be graphically in the range of PSX or PSP games, meaning true 3D gaming is headed to Android”

I don’t believe that is right. The PSP is already over five years old, so for a new successor device, it’s reasonable to expect a major improvement, just like any other 5+ year console generation jump. I’m not expecting PS3 level 3D or anything, but merely achieving par with the old first-gen PSP would be a disappointment.

Overall, very exciting. Can’t wait to hear more.
