Sony hoping to enrich user experience of upcoming systems

Digital publisher Gameloft will release five of its most popular HD games for Sony’s upcoming tablets, the company has announced.

The games to be released are Asphalt 6: Adrenaline HD, N.O.V.A. 2 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance HD, Real Soccer 2011 HD, Spider-Man: Total Mayhem HD, and Green Farm HD.

Sony’s upcoming iPad rival will be PlayStation certified, and like the Xperia play and Vita, will be compatible with the PlayStation Suite program, meaning PSone games can also be played.

"The convergence of high performance, a stunning display, and the focus on a networked device provided by Sony tablet devices perfectly complements Gameloft's high quality games and online multiplayer functionality," said Gameloft senior VP of publishing Gonzague de Vallois.

"The high impact of the Sony Tablet S's large display along with the unique dual screen configuration of the Sony Tablet P truly enhances the overall entertainment value of the gaming experience."

Sony’s Makoto Ishii added: “We are extremely pleased to offer our customers access to Gameloft's exciting entertainment contents through Sony Tablet.”

"I'm convinced they will enrich the user experience of our upcoming tablets."

Sony’s S Tablet is currently available for £399, whilst the P Tablet will be released in November at a price of £499.
