Taiwanese OEM joins Sony's PlayStation Certified licence programme.
The move has been rumoured for a few months now, and a short statement from HTC has made it official.
For Sony, this is a minor breakthrough as the firm has been keen to expand the range of Playstation compatible devices away from just its own handsets.
Sony (then Sony Ericsson) launched the The Xperia Play in spring 2011 as its first PlayStation phone. The device features PlayStation-branded buttons, a flip-screen and links to the PlayStation Suite platform, which allows gamers to download PSone and Android software.
"HTC is focused on delivering innovative mobile experiences for people everywhere and SCE's immersive world of gaming will bring compelling entertainment to HTC One customers across the globe," said Kouji Kodera, chief product officer of HTC.
In another corporate re-think, Sony will rename PlayStation Suite to PlayStation Mobile and seek to accelerate the expansion of PlayStation Certified devices further.
