Playstation Certification Reportedly Coming for HTC Devices

For those who enjoy video games, Playstation making moves in the Android world has been very exciting. Sure, they put their support out for only a very select few phones, but it was a start and something to build on. It was only a matter of time before things got better for the mobile gaming demographic.

Well, the news is only getting better as XDA Senior Member bcarter2000 has dropped a tip off in the forums that HTC could be getting Playstation Certified as early as Mobile World Congress. As if we didn’t have enough to look forward to!

The story, which has appeared on Yahoo! News via Pocket-lint, says:

The official announcement might come as soon as the end of February at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, sources claim. If true, the certification will let users play PlayStation One games on HTC devices.

Joy! For many gamers, the only way to get their Playstation fix thus far has been emulators. However, ROMs for those can be buggy, laggy, and saved data seems to be more easily corrupted. Nevertheless, aficionados of gaming have something to look forward to.

If you’d like to read the whole story, you can find a link to it in this XDA Thread where readers are also doing some discussion. Or you can find the original Yahoo! News article here.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...

New Cyanogen Partnerships Bring Privacy Concerns

New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
