After months of leaked images and videos, Sony has finally officially revealed their PlayStation Phone with its real title of Xperia Play.
A strange commercial for the device was aired during the Super Bowl on Feb. 6 giving very little information about the phone other than its existence. You can check out the horrifically creepy teaser below.
The console, currently dubbed the PSP2, reportedly features 3G support, enabling players to download games and movies as well as software while players aren’t around wi-fi. It will also have a larger OLED touch screen and a new processor to handle updated and high-resolution graphics.
Rumors and a few photos are all the industry has had to go on for the currently in-development PlayStation phone, but this weekend a new and crystal-clear video of the mobile device surfaced, fueling yet more speculation. According to Engaget, who broke the news on Saturday, the Sony Ericcson brand phone is currently codenamed Zeus Z1.
What can be seen in the video is clearly a mobile phone with a touch screen and a slide-out control surface. It has a similar look to the PSPgo, PlayStation’s most recently released portable device. The video also shows what appear to be apps for the phone, one of which is labelled “PlayStation.”
