Sega, THQ, and dozens of others have signed up as PlayStation Mobile developers

PS Mobile developers
PlayStation Mobile remains a mysterious project discussed only in whispers and shown only in montages. During Gamescom, Sony finally began revealing details about the service by releasing a list of developers who have signed on to create content for the Android/Vita mobile content platform.

We knew about Vlambeer (Super Crate Box), but we didn't know about the 38 other international companies, and 46 Japanese companies, that have expressed interest in the service. Among them are Action Button Entertainment, who made the excellent Ziggurat for iOS; Necrosoft, Team 17, THQ, and more.

There are a lot of familiar Japanese developers on the list, including Sega, Q? Entertainment, Tecmo Koei, Arc System Works, and smaller devs of note like Granzella (ex-Irem), Spike Chunsoft, D3 Publisher, and Nippon Ichi Software.

We've got the full list after the break, including the ones whose names were just in Japanese. We figure the translated list will be of more use to most of you.
