Sony axes PlayStation Mobile for Android

Sony has announced that it is ending support for PlayStation Mobile for Android, and that future versions of Android would not have access to the PlayStation Mobile store. Sony stated PlayStation Certified devices running Android 4.4.2 and below will be able to access the service, but that devices on Android 4.4.3 and above may run into issues while accessing content and playing games. Users making the switch to Android L will not be have store access at all. Sony even made a chart that outlines feature availability based on Android version:


Sony has also mentioned that it will not be giving out any more PlayStation Certified status to future devices. Although the PlayStation Mobile service enjoyed the occasional hit, lack of exclusive titles meant that the service did not gain much traction with mainstream consumers.
