Video: PlayStation Phone Prodded And Poked

playstation phone.jpgNaviFairy and Wootini may be giving you all the updates and sweet details on the 3DS, but I've got a little somethin'-somethin' here for you I know you're gonna love even better: a video of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, aka the PlayStation Phone, being given a demo. That's right, who knows what you like?

Not a whole lot can be seen and it's clearly still in prototype stage, but it's nice to see that it's a product that will likely see the light of day instead of dying as concept renders. Interestingly, the design of it suggests that Sony is aiming more at Apple for competition than Nintendo. The pessimist in me thinks that they're just pulling what they did with the Move and slap their own coat of paint and higher price tag on an existing product, but the optimist in me thinks that there's hope for progress and innovation, and the Polyanna Brighteyes in me dares to dream that they've learned from their mistakes with the PSP and the PSP Go to produce a better product. But we'll see.

Hit the jump for the video and then sound off in the comments with your own speculations and wild theories!

I wonder if it'll be possible to burn/emulate my existing UMD discs onto the phone though.

hmmmm you know what people want huh Digital Lit??? Really!?!?!? We're gonna love it???!?!?!?!? pfffftt!!!

Looks like we have a sony fanboy at the GG.net castle..... personally I'm all about the 3DS. We've all seen portable gaming and gaming on phones so its not new and its not exciting. Not enough people will adopt it and will just be another N-gage.

@JustTheTrick tm - And it looks like we have someone who doesn't recognize facetiousness in the GG.net comments.

Unless Sony pulls something amazing out, it's going to have very stiff competition with both Androids and iPhones - touch-pad analog sticks aren't a good enough gimmick to be a system seller - and given the design of this prototype it doesn't seem like they even want to compete with the 3DS.

I hope that Sony has learned from their past mistakes and do a good job because greater variety and competition in a given market spurns more progression and innovation. Their strategies and awareness for the PS3/PSP generation don't give me great hope, but I can still give them the benefit of the doubt until something comes along to take that away.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
