Playstation Phone Gets Two Thumbs Up

The idea of using your phone as a gaming device isn’t completely foreign seeing that iPhone and Android users are glued to games like Angry Birds and Doodle Jump already. Marketing a game console that’s also a phone, however, hasn’t exactly been successful in the past (see N-Gage). With Android technology, Playstation backing the games and the smartphone capabilities of Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, it might just become the gaming phone that actually make sense.

A Norwegian Android site got a hold of the first commercial for the game. Warning: It’s a little creepy if you’re like me and like to think humans are the only creatures who should have opposable thumbs. On an more interesting note, it shows footage of an unknown fighting game and what looks like Gameloft’s Asphalt and Star Battalion.

Do you think the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is going to be a financial success or flop?
