PlayStation Phone Commercial Leaked, Horrifying
It appears that the worst-kept secret in the history of the world now has a commercial.
The as-of-yet unannounced PlayStation Phone, now dubbed the “Xperia Play,” can be seen in a 34 second TV spot uploaded to YouTube. It’s being developed by Sony Ericsson. As expected, the device will be an Android phone with PSP guts and inputs, fitting the hardware footprint of the PSP Go.
The brief glimpses of the actual hardware aren’t really that important. No, what’s important is the abject horror of seeing the Android mascot with human thumbs grafted onto his otherwise adorable nubs. Apparently Sony was able to sign David Cronenberg as the guest director.
Sony has yet to publicly acknowledge the PlayStation Phone. However, if this is a hoax, it’s a really convincing one. Check out the goods in the video embedded below.
