It's weird to call this an "official announcement" because it seems we've known about it for ages.
But at any rate, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play – what gamers and the press had called the "PlayStation Phone" for months and months – enjoyed its worldwide debut during the Super Bowl tonight. If you missed it, the crazy ad is below and while we're never the biggest fans of Sony's bizarre commercials for their new hardware, this one might strike the right chord. …or some chord…of some kind… Okay, it's just strange.
For the record, the Xperia Play will be one of the very first devices revealed at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and the exact date and time is February 13 at 6 p.m. GMT. You can also check out the promotional poster seen at Engadget ; it shows a full shot of Gingerbread running along with the aforementioned info.
So, will this be your next phone? Or are you waiting on the iPhone 5? Or maybe you just want to keep PlayStation in the living room…?
