PlayStation Phone ‘Officially’ Unveiled

After leak upon leak we finally have the 110% official showing of the long rumored PlayStation Phone. As expected, the phone is going to be called the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, and it was officially revealed during the Super Bowl on Sunday. The advert that reveals the phone begins by showing a man hustling through busy streets before heading to an industrial factory of sorts. As he heads in to a back room, you see everyone’s favorite green Android lying on a table with his hands nubs wrapped up. As another man in the room starts to unwrap them, you then see that the Droid now has human thumbs stitched on. The commercial ends by showing the Xperia Play itself, and it looks to be the same model that has been repeatedly leaked on the net.

Still no word on exactly when we’ll get to see it but if we’re to take the ad to heart, it shouldn’t be long.

  1. Fantastic ad, I loved it! Would like to see the specs, though I’m fairly certain I’ll be grabbing an iPhone 5 this summer, with my borderline-Sony fanboyism satisfied with a cheeky NGP whenever that’s released in the UK.

    • Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Specifications:
      * 4 inches (854 × 480) touchcreen
      * Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS
      * 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
      * Adreno 205 GPU
      * Slide-out gaming keypad
      * 5-megapixel camera with LED flash
      * HD Video recording (720p)
      * 512 MB RAM
      * WiFi
      * Bluetooth
      * A-GPS

      Usual run of the mill stuff, basically the DesireHD but with less RAM.

  2. Man that is a creep wierd funny advert lol. Don’t think I want to see it again. Hell put that in SAW and you got yourself a deal xD lol.

  3. Id Rather get a PSP2 for 200-300 quid rather than this which will be around 400 (all the fast androids are around that price + the PSP2 is 4x faster O_o

    • I’m expecting the PSP3 to be about 350, either way, I’ll be considering it before even thinking about a new phone.

  4. Oh noes… Another machine to support… Unless the experia guys do the tech support and not us poor ps tech support guys: )
