Xperia Play is unveiled in a 30-second Super Bowl ad

After months of speculation and leaked photos, Sony Ericsson finally made the so-called "PlayStation phone," the Xperia Play, official in a big way -- by airing a creepy ad during the Super Bowl.

The spot depicts a sweaty man running to deliver a pair of scissors to another man, seemingly performing a back-alley surgery, as ominous music drums up the drama. The surgery, it is revealed, was performed on a life-sized green Android who has been fashioned with a pair of thumbs. The scissors are used to cut off its bandages.

"Android is ready to play," the tagline reads, before cutting to a shot of the Xperia Play. A voice-over narrator proclaims, "The smartphone with everything you need, and the one thing you want," as a "PlayStation Certified" icon appears in the upper corner. "Coming soon," the narrator continues, "from Sony Ericsson."

The device depicted in the spot is the same one that appeared in the leaked photos from December, D-pad and all.

According to Engadget, the Android-based device, running Gingerbread, is set to make its first official in-the-flesh appearance next week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Actually Sony is going offer the platform on the market place.


"Game reviewers fought each other to write the most glowing coverage possible for the powerhouse Sony, MS systems. Reviewers flipped coins to see who would review the Nintendo Wii. The losers got stuck with the job." -- Andy Marken
