Sony has dabbled in a few mobile experiments, including weird promotional stuff, the PlayStation App, and most recently, a tie-in game for Knack. However, is this the first time they've released an actual port of a first-party game onto iOS and Android? Seems like it.
Bentley's Hackpack was originally a PS3/Vita spin-off game of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. However, it's made a surprise appearance on both the App Store and Google Play. Both are available as free demos, with a full unlock available as an in-app purchase.
The game will only run on iPad and compatible Android tablets and features the three hacking mini-games of Thieves in Time. It's not the biggest plunge into mobile game development for Sony, but it's clear that the publisher is slowly testing the waters.

Now please release Lemmings for mobile. It, and associated sequels, are perfect for touch devices.
