Commercial for PlayStation Phone leaked

04 Feb 11

The first commercial for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play - commonly referred to as the "PlayStation Phone" - has already leaked onto the Internet.

Norwegian Android website DroidNYTT was the first to post the video after reportedly stumbling across it on YouTube.

The Xperia Play will be the first "PlayStation Certified" mobile phone. The device has not yet been officially announced, although most pundits presume it will appear officially at the World Mobile Congress in Barcelona between February 14th and February 17th.

Despite the lack of official acknowledgement, we already know a great deal about the device thanks to Engadget's recent and unofficial hands-on preview. The tech blog was unable to test officially supported games, which presumably will be part of the PlayStation Suite platform recently announced by Sony.

Anyway, get your first look at the creepy Xperia Play commercial below.
