Today Engadget seems to have managed to get a little news on what might be the first mobile to have PSN/PSP gaming capabilities. This news comes from one of their trusted sources that spoke to Engadget of an impending PSP phone. This device is said to have Galaxy S looks alongside a PSP Go slide out game pad. The device will be powered by Google’s upcoming mobile platform Android 3 aka Gingerbread.

Now since we are not an Android site, we could care less about all that. The part we care about is… “PS3 coming to Android”. Now if you are a PS3 or 360 user, you know how often the two system are compared to each other. I myself even have many arguments with my friends that never lose even when I win. Now that Sony will be brining this gaming platform to their Android devices, it seems these battles will now be making their way to mobile phones.

Windows Phone 7 has its Xbox Live platform, Sony Ericsson will have a PSN platform on Android, and iPhone has something. This means we might see Smartphone’s becoming the next gaming systems. Imagine seeing a commercial saying “Coming to your Windows Phone 7”, or now “Coming to PSP and PSP phone”. This could be the reality if both Microsoft and Sony have a mobile gaming platform being released to the market.

This will be good because that means we can expect MS to work harder on innovating better technology to WP7 game systems. This also means since Sony might be getting games like Modern warfare, Metal gear solid, and all… we might see a title race. Meaning both company working hard to get better known/better quality games to their system.

I am very excited about this because not only will it improve our systems, but it will give me more things to argue about and even write about. I am also sure many people might want PSN over Xbox Live, because if you are like me… You have a PS3 and would never waste your money on a 360.

Comment below and tell me what you think of this new development, and what you think is better for a mobile platform… PSN or Xbox Live?
