Until now, Sony's PlayStation certification has been limited to the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and Sony Tablet S, but that may be about to change. According to a recent annoncement by Sony Ericsson Japan, Japanese Xperia Arcs will soon be receiving PlayStation certification through an official software update, as will the Xperia Acro, the Arc's Japan-only sibling.
The update should allow Arc and Acro to owners enjoy the same catalog of PlayStation games that are currently available on the Xperia Play, which includes titles like Crash Bandicoot, WipEout and Syphon Filter. There's no word on when this update will be rolling out to Arcs in Europe and the US, but given Sony's renewed effort to build momentum behind its PS certified platform, we'd expect it to hit sooner rather than later.
