"It was quite a day for Sony portable fans. Earlier
today (well, technically yesterday) Engadget posted about some
hands-on experience with the Xperia Play, aka the Playstation
Phone. It sure looks real to me. Engadget is being coy about where
this unit came from but post author Richard Lai says he's been
using it as his primary phone for a few days now, with generally
"No 'official' games are available for it, but Lai loaded up
some emulators and mapped the hardware buttons to emulator controls
and had a go. This isn't final hardware but for an early look it
seems promising enough.
"The big news, however, came later in the evening (US time) when
Sony held what was leaked as a "business overview and strategy
meeting" in Tokyo. Sounds intimate, right? Turns out this was the
Playstation Meeting 2011 and over 1,000 people crowded into a grand
ballroom to hear what was new with the Playstation brand."
