The games that are available through this PlayStation Mobile app is even more limited. So far, there are only 30 titles users can get their gameplay-on. The list of games include titles such as Twist Pilot, Rebel, Samurai Beatdown, Flick Hockey, Wipe!, Magic Arrows, Tractor Trails, etc. To help bring more games, Sony will release a Mobile SDK sometime next month, allowing developers to bring their own titles to the store and to PlayStation Mobile and Vita ecosystem.

The new system is simple. All games purchased will be linked to users’ PlayStation Network ID, and once a game is bought, it can be played on any certified device. Hit the PlayStation blog link for more details.
