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.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
