The PlayStation Mobile store will go live on October 3, offering 30 games to players in Japan, the US and Europe.

Prices have been confirmed for Japan as between 50 and 850 ($0.63 / 0.38 - $10 / 6.60), with a variety of titles in familiar action, puzzle, sports and simulation genres.

Hardware from Sharp and Fujitsu have also been added to the certified devices program, alongside HTC, Sony Ericsson, Asus and Wikipad.

PlayStation Mobile is Sony's games offering for smartphone and tablet formats, running on the Android platform and previously known as PlayStation Suite.

In an interview earlier this year, Sony's Jim Ryan told GamesIndustry International that over 50 different software houses were creating product for the service, which he saw as a gateway for users unfamiliar with Sony's software catalogue.

The PlayStation Mobile SDK will be released to developers this November with a licensing agreement of $99 annually.

Yet another subscription for me to make :P

It's now Adobe's Cloud, Microsoft for Windows Phone, Apple for Iphone, iPad etc. etc. and finally some Android with Google Play.

I've finally figured out where the real money is in this mobile dev malarky!
