According to Pocket-lint, Sony is planning to bestow PlayStation Certification onto upcoming HTC Android smartphones by the middle of the year. What does said certification entail?

Basically, the PlayStation Suite project (of which PlayStation Certified hardware is a part) currently consists of a dozen or so ported PSX titles from Sony's back catalog - like Crash Bandicoot, or Syphon Filter. They work on PS Certified Android phones as well as the PlayStation Vita.

We certainly aren't a console video gaming blog, but when reviews of the US version of Sony's PlayStation Vita started cropping up this morning, I couldn't help but take notice of the new mobile console system's software. Particularly, how... smartphoney it looks.

Everything in Sony's Vita OS has been appified - Google Maps is there, while Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, and Skype apps are forthcoming. Sony has its own suite of apps as well, including a full-blown browser which, although it appears to be pretty terrible, is apparently the best on any mobile gaming device to date.

Mobile games are a hot category these days. Multiplayer tablet games, on the other hand, are a bit harder to come by. The larger form factor lends itself well to multiple players gathered around a virtual game board, but few apps pursue this route. Fireballs HD is one of those few. Up to four players can join a Tron-like game, competing to keep their fireball alive without hitting the trails of others.

The arcade may have killed the pinball star, but like the Rubik's cube or the Slinky before it, pinball machines have refused to disappear. Pinball Arcade, from Farsight Studios, brings back several classic pinball tables from major players in the pinball industry. Each table also comes with a brief description of its history.

Tables licensed from Williams, Bally, Stern, and Gottlieb have been recreated in impeccable detail. Gameplay and physics are fluid and the flippers are responsive with virtually no lag, which is critical in a game of reaction times.

Minecraft is the world's most popular online multiplayer not-quite-Lego creativity tool/game with 8-bit graphics and zombies. It's also an Android game. Until recently, though, Minecraft Pocket Edition was limited to creativity mode, only a few materials, and players lacked the ability to fly. Today, that all changes. Minecraft Pocket Edition just got a whole lot more like Minecraft Normal Edition with the addition of Survival Mode, plus a ton of other new features.

Yep, I'm 100% serious. Right now, on my phone, is an alpha, proof-of-concept build of Portal. No, it's not official (it's definitely not supported by VALVe Software in any way), but it is tantalizingly awesome. Now, before you ask, we aren't going to link to the apk - it's from a pretty sketchy source. But if you look hard enough, you'll probably be able to find it out there in some of the darker corners of the web.

Fans of the ZENONIA series, listen up! Another iteration of the iconic action RPG just landed in the Android Market. ZENONIA 4: Return of the Legend marks the first installment in the series to offer "full HD," making it the "best looking ZENONIA ever."

The game builds off of the same dynamic gameplay that you've come to expect from the series, bringing with it enhancements and improvements along the way. In Z4, you can choose between four classes of characters: Slayer, Blader, Ranger, or Druid, and battle your way through a new world.

When an app comes out that not-so-subtly takes inspiration from major motion pictures, we're tempted to look the other way. The exception, of course, is if they're good. Dojo Madness is one of those exceptions. You play as a ninja raccoon that must defend his dojo from evil wolves, gorillas, and turtles. Also, you shoot blue laser balls.

The app has a very Fruit Ninja feel to it, with the dojo aesthetic and the fast-paced gameplay.

Seeing as I'm hopelessly addicted to Portal and Portal 2, I was pretty excited when we came across Asantee's new game Magic Portals. Basically, it's a physics-based puzzler that revolves around the whole portal concept. While it obviously isn't exactly unique, it is absolutely entertaining and fun to play.

Gameplay

So as I said before, the whole game is based on portals - hence the title. As we all know, portals aren't really a magical phenomenon, though.

Mobile gaming giant Gameloft has released yet another new title to the Android Market, and this time it's a soccer simulator: Real Soccer 2012. The game packs impressive graphics and customization options, and is even licensed by FIFPRO - meaning real players and leagues are used. Perhaps one of the most impressive features, though, is the ability to replay real-life games through an in-game news feed.

Real Soccer is back for the new season, bringing soccer on mobile to a new era!
