"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 good results.

"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."
