PlayStation Phone is real, so we're guessing the handset that has just been torn down in China is a mirage. TGBus didn't stop at snapping the XPERIA Play with some of its predecessors; they also whipped out the screwdrivers and opened the handset up. No great surprises inside, with a Qualcomm MSM7x30 chipset and Broadcom wireless. We're expecting Sony Ericsson to (sheepishly) make this gaming smartphone official at MWC 2011 next month.

numerous occasions in photosets, the Sony Ericsson PlayStation Phone has now turned up in a video showing gameplay in action. The footage, caught by Edge Magazine, shows the XPERIA Play branded handset playing ripped PS1 ROMs through an app called ROM Buddy. Whether or not the final product - which is tipped to be officially launched at MWC 2011 next month - will have that same functionality remains to be seen, but it's certainly proof that the PlayStation Phone's hardware is capable of running the full console (albeit aged) titles Resident Evil 2 and Rage Racer.

Sony Ericsson PlayStation Phone have emerged, with the handset tipped to use BRAVIA branding for a display that's supposedly on-par with the iPhone 4's Retina Display. According to MobileCrunch's source, the handset is on track for a Mobile World Congress 2011 launch in February next year, since it is "no where near ready" for a holiday 2010 release. What's left unclear is how the phone will be branded; it seems Sony Ericsson will be sticking with their XPERIA name, since the PlayStation Phone most likely won't be able to run actual downloaded PSP games. Instead, it will get custom mobile games, specially created for the platform and priced at sub-$10. The handset itself is internally expected to come in at around $500 unsubsidized, including a five game bundle. As for "Z-System", that's supposedly the umbrella title for both the Sony Ericsson gaming platform and the distribution system, and it's undecided whether games will be distributed separately to the Android Market or, as Google is apparently pushing for, in a new, custom section of the Market. The tipster - who apparently has a track record not just of successful information but with mobile gaming - reckons it's "the best gaming experience [they've] ever had on a mobile device," which leaves us eagerly anticipating MWC in a few months time.
PlayStation phone could well launch as the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play, if a new batch of freshly-registered domains are anything to go by. XperiaX10Blog found Swedish PR agency - of whom Sony Ericsson is a client - Jung Relations has snapped up multiple "xperiaplay" domains, including the .com, .org, .co.uk and .net. Right now there are only holding pages to be found, but we're guessing that will all change by the time the gaming smartphone is officially announced. That's expected to happen at MWC 2011 this coming February, though the actual launch is yet to be pinned down: recent sources tipped a March launch, while a new report from Pocket-lint suggests it's more likely to be April 2010, in the UK at least.
