The long rumored Sony Ericsson PlayStation phone won't be announced on CES next month, but on the MWC 11 in February. It will hit the stores in April under the name of XPERIA Play. Quite some news, right...

Now people may be angry with this comment but what I really want is the Sony ericsson anzu as that would be slimmer and have a better camera but that is just me.

xperia play is a more befitting name. It simply is not worthy to have a 'Playstation' as it's name.

SE are top notch when it comes to their devices!

I'm really looking forward for this phone, it seems it will really be awesome. The good thing about this phone is that it's unique and it's the only phone in the market that has buttons for hardcore gamers. Therefore, even in the future when better devices gets releases, keep in mind that the play station phone will still give you the best gaming experience.

Come one, no normal person over the age of 18 will buy this. And how much money do teenagers have to spend on things like this? Nah this wont sell big numbers.

More I look at it more I realize how ugly this phone is.

i think this will be awesome, but hopefully the battery can last more than just 12 hours (at least) and the ram should be more than 512mb because we are talking not just for the games but also the capability to multitask. also to bear in mind that Apple might also release their next iphone at the same period and usually they'll come up with top notch system.

Droid Rampage, 21 Dec 2010Finally! A gaming phone with real buttons. Yeah !, since N-gage (classic) I've not seen such a comfortable game phone, i guess games will not be psp quality like, that's why Sony Ericsson changed the name, but it's enough for me if i can play emulators with this controls.

I like SE's version of Adroid as i find it the friendliest of them all - versions. And now this! SE's comeback, maybe?
