Lightbulb Playstation Phone

I donít care (for now) that the rumors are pointing toward the Register moniker for this device. In my eyes, itís still the Sony PlayStation Phone, because thatís really what it is. And now we finally get to see the Register perform some of its PlayStation functionality.

Weíre seeing an increasingly large number of leaked photos, but a video demo is so much better. A video has now been posted on the Internet, showing the PlayStation Phone XPERIA Play running Biohazard 2 (known as Capcomís Resident Evil 2 on our shores) and Rage Racer (which is a part of the Ridge Racer series from Namco). These are classic PS1 titles.

Thatís the good news. The bad news is that Iím thinking this gameplay preview is anything but official. Instead of using something that looks like official Sony software, the demo makes use of an app called ROM Buddy. The emulator then proceeds to find and launch BIN titles for the mobile gaming enjoyment. Iíd imagine that when this becomes official that the PlayStation Network would be extended to support it.
Considering the powerful graphics and gameplay capabilities of regular Android (and iOS) phones these days, will a true ďPlayStation PhoneĒ really stick out from the crowd anymore? I guess having real game controls will help.

Re: Playstation Phone

looks cools, but as mentioned, using an emulator, not the original core of psp...which might take time...
