Sony says they'll have to clearly distinguish between the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and the Next Generation Portable.
But they needn't worry when it comes to the avid gamers: according to our recent poll, the vast majority are simply more interested in Sony's second portable effort. When asked if they were more interested in the Xperia Play (the "PlayStation Phone") or the NGP, the results were clear, and not many said they weren't intrigued by either super advanced electronic gadget. It seems clear that those "in the know" understand that one is designed specifically for gaming, while the other is a smartphone with some PlayStation compatibility. The results don't mean people aren't interested in the new phone; they merely mean gamers – those who visit PSXE, certainly – have their priorities straight when it comes to entertainment. They want the next great thing in the realm of portable video games, and that is most definitely the NGP.
