Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play, the device we used to call the PlayStation Phone, isn't the prettiest thing on the planet. Swap the drab silver out for a creamy white, though, and things are looking up.
Big bad China. The Mainland. The second biggest economy on Earth. Communism. And a whole military complex. Neighboring Japan is worried. What about game companies?
Never mind that we've seen the PSPhone in action, Sony still hasn't officially confirmed the product's existence. Oh well. One Chinese website just apparently ripped the thing wide open.
Late last month, photos of a rumored PSP phone surfaced. The prototype looked like a Sony Ericsson cell phone mated with a PSP. Rumors, right? Know what they say, where there's smoke there's fire — with "they" being Sony.
It says a lot about how hideous Sony's rumoured PlayStation Phone prototype is that a Chinese knock-off using the PSPgo as a template is a more desirable piece of hardware.
Sony has finally done it. They've mated a Sony Ericsson cell phone with a PSP, spawning this... the PlayStation Phone. Don't call it the PSP2, please. That's something else entirely.
Sony refused to allow Sony Ericsson the use of its Playstation brand for a possible Playstation Portable phone during a pitch to the company's board late last year, Mobile Today reports.
