The platform previously had the support of 56 companies from Japan and Europe. Today, Sony said that 29 companies from America will join the list.
Sony will also be offering a PlayStation Mobile SDK to potential developers. Developers who have signed up for a 99 USD annual license can distribute the content they create on the SDK easily through PlayStation Store.
PlayStation Certified device support also saw a boost today. ASUSTeK Computer and WikiPad will be producing PlayStation Certified devices.
With the start of availability of PlayStation Mobile content through PlayStation Store, Sony will cease offering PlayStation games for PlayStation Certified devices. Retro PlayStation downloads were one of the first offerings for PlayStation Suite. The titles will be pulled the same day PlayStation Mobile launch.
