Sony today said it won’t support PlayStation Mobile for Android moving forward.

PlayStation Mobile gave select Sony Android handsets access to old PSOne titles in addition to those developed specifically for PS Mobile. According to Sony, PlayStation Certified devices running Android 4.4.2 and below will continue to be able to access the service. Devices running Android 4.4.3 and up will be able to access it, but may run into compatibility and performance issues.

Devices running Android Release L (which is not yet available) won’t be able to access PlayStation Mobile at all. Sony said it won’t grant PlayStation Certified status to any more devices.

Separately, Sony also announced plans to exit the e-reader market. It cited its inability to compete with devices such as the Amazon Kindle as playing a role in the decision.
