Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY Hands-On and Unboxing [Verizon]

Well what do you know? We got a PlayStation phone in the mail! This device is one of Verizon's newest handsets, it being produced by Sony Ericsson and of course it being the very first and only PlayStation Certified smartphone in the world. It's running Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread, connects to data via Verizon's 3G network, and it comes in a rather unexciting box. It'll sell itself, I swear! Inside the device you'll find more than just guts, you'll find a perfectly usable set of PlayStation controls including flat joysticks, directional pad, and four PlayStation buttons. There's also a start button, a select button, and an extra Android menu button so you don't have to reach all the way up to the side of the display. Left and Right buttons are up top (behind the display when open) and a volume dongle sits in the middle. Lets get our hands on it and see how it goes!

Xperia Play CDMA phone hits the FCC

The Sony Xperia Play made a repeat performance at the FCC this weekend, as it's CDMA twin received Federal consideration. The inaugural Playstation certified handset, shows a SIM card slot that's different from Verizon's 4G LTE devices. This is leading some to speculate if this is a 3G only device, at least for testing purposes. We haven't seen any 4G association with the phone's advertizing with Verizon, and only rumors are circulating as to the Xperia Play launching later this month. But as we reported here, the Xperia Play is coming to 11 markets around the world, just not the US initially.

Playstation Emulator PSX4Droid Pulled from Android Market

Is Xperia PLAY to blame? That's what developer ZodTTD believes, and with recent events surrounding groups like Twitter, for example, we's mildly suspicious as well. If you're unaware, several massively popular 3rd party Twitter clients were pulled just a few weeks ago right around the same time Twitter released their very own brand new official app - this new version was and is pretty nice, but Google's pull of the other versions so close to Twitter's official app was just too odd not to take note of. Is a similar sort of situation unfolding here with Sony Ericsson and the Xperia PLAY? Such a twisted web we weave.

Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY Hands-On [CTIA 2011]

We got another opportunity to take a look at the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY Android gaming phone whilst at a Verizon event in Orlando during CTIA 2011. It was here that we finally got both an extended look at the device as well as an adequate amount of time to make judgements on its form and content. In the video below you're going to see a presentation made by a Verizon representative who shows us a top-down look at the device including a demo of several games that we're very much looking forward to trying out.

Xperia Play Thumbs ad gets wierd second chapter

Sony-Ericsson has released a second chapter in their bizarre ad campaign for the Sony Xperia Play Android phone.   The Ad, shows confused victim of a crime telling a police officer in some non-descript Asian country that a girl who he took home from an evening at a local club, severed his thumbs and disappeared.  The Cops laugh at the irony and then we see the same Android from the first commercial walking through the streets flexing his new game playing digits.  Disturbing?  You bet.  Dark comedic punch line?  Absolutely.  But will it sell phones?

Sony XPERIA Play Extended “Thumbs” Ad Spot [video]

If you'll recall a few days ago we showed you a severely disturbing ad spot from Sony Ericsson depicting a man running through some dark streets, past dingy workers in a rush to deliver something or other to what turns out to be a man performing surgery. The surgeon is hard at work doing no less than grafting human thumbs onto a 3 foot tall Google Android. This commercial was leaked in a terrible quality video, then replayed during the Superbowl, and is now here for you in full quality, in a totally extended video that'll creep you out just as hard as it did in the short mix.
