Laugh and underestimate the PlayStation phone now, haters. Easy to kick Sony when they are down. Nobody knew how well the Wii would sell after Nintendo finished 2nd and 3rd with N64 and GameCube. I remember people laughing at Nintendo when they saw the controller and stupid name. All those Wii Wii jokes. You can back the hot horse now, but for the next race, the favorite may not win. Today's winner is tomorrow's bridesmaid. Whether this flops or not, the marriage between hardcore gaming and cell phones need to happen now. We may not have the battery technology to support it, but it is a start. We all can't be stuck playing 99 cent casual games all day. I want the depth, amazing storylines, blood, and nudity too. Call it a flop now. You could be sadly mistaken and underestimate the once mighty video game king known as Sony that dominated with the PlayStation 1 & 2.
I have a beautiful iPhone 4 that is more powerful than an Xbox 1 and it usually sucks playing 16-bit 2D platform and fighting games. Enter PlayStation phone with actual buttons. Problem solved.
$ony are terrible at handheld gaming, they killed the pspgo before it was released.
This phone will flop big time.
Savor, 27 Oct 2010No analog stick is downer since this may not work for platformers and FPS. I think the touchpa... moreIF you look closely, i presume those two little dots are multi touch so should be analog touch sticks. inbetween the d pad and controls.
Ugly. But PSPGo looks OK so there is hope.
Will hold off on other comments 'till the final design, pricing and specs are in.
Android and Sony may not last long if the rumours are true about Apple acquiring Sony.
wht SE needs is nice phone not psp go with phone function!! x10 is one of the worst ever and it needs update
3.7" and 4.1" for screen display it sounds not good for a gaming device.
5" sound much much better
two separate optical track pads huh? could be a good replacement for analog knobs since this is a slider...good idea sony...good idea!
it seems that analog sticks are replace by the center touch pads next to D-pad

I also feel tt the lack of a phisical stick might be a downgrade.
Lets see how the multitouch pad works on replacing analogic sticks; my bet, not good.
They should implement those those d-pads where you can screw in an analog stick in the middle, i'm sure most of you guys know what i'm on about :) Come on Sony Ericsson! CATCH UP!!
no...not gd ...it is not longer a Phone ...either to be PSP or phone ......I don't like tht idea....:(
SWEET, SWEET, SWEET.... Cannot wait to see final form factor of the phone... Hope they allow the Android market place as well as the Sony market place..... Cannot wait to play EA games on it.... Im a PS3 user and would love this phone... Not a Xbox user so the WP7 Xbox phones doesn't appeal to me.... Glad Sony choose Android.....
not being negative these shots have been on the net for sometime now. until its on a carriers website for pre-order. then i will believe it. untill then internet just rumours.
but GSMarena tend to deal in the truth. usually.dont they
