VIDEO: PlayStation Phone demonstrated, running Android 2.3

There’s another amazing “PlayStation Phone ” leak online today, with Engadget getting its hands on a sensational CLOSE-UP video of the rumoured Sony Ericsson gaming phone – and it’s running the “Gingerbread” 2.3 update of Android as well. Wow.

It’s probably time to stop say this is a “rumoured” phone, actually – it’s definitely real. There’s no denying this is a proper, working gaming phone from Sony Ericsson.

I can’t get the sound to work. Can anyone else get the sound to work? WORK, SOUND. I WANT TO HEAR ITS NOISES.

    That looks a lot more like it’s 2.2 than 2.3 at least given the current set of leaked images for 2.3

  2. Anyone still naive enough to believe this will play PSP games? And it’s nothing more than a Android phone in a PSP formfactor.

    At best it MAY emulate PSP Minis or have PS3 Remote Play, but I recon that’s about it.

      It does appear they’re planning an all-new software format for it. Which might be a bit of an “issue” to say the least.

        Come on you know how it works (you’ve been doing the same FUD spreading for years on UKResistance). Engadget know full well this won’t play PSP games, so they are hyping it up, so it’s sure to fail…

          You flatter UKR!

          UKR is/was jokes and singling out very big and obvious lies. Never tried to pass something not true off as being true.

          Plus I don’t think anyone knows what games this phone will play yet. I don’t know enough technical stuff to say if Qualcomm’s internals are powerful enough to emulate PSP or not. I’d suggest it won’t be, though, and that Sony Computer Entertainment would rather keep its PSP retail games to itself anyway.

    • I’m not saying it’s going to be a bad phone by any means, but Engadget are hyping it up beyond any level in which it’s likely to be able to perform.

      It surely won’t play PSP games, it will play Android games, and I suspect it will have it’s own store with a subset of games designed for it.

        The hardware ought to be more than capable so it’s really just a software problem. That’s not to say that it’s trivial thing in any way.
        If it’s going to be carrying the playstation brand I’d expect them to being over some of the larger titles but we’ll have to wait and see.

  4. It’ll be an excellent portable SNES/Mega Drive at the very least. Better controls than any other android phones for that.
