Sony: A PlayStation Phone “Could Happen”

Sony: A PlayStation Phone “Could Happen”

Yup. This again. With Sony’s phone partnership with Ericsson running up record losses, company boss Hideki Komiyama has again raised the prospect of a PlayStation Phone.

Speaking with The Financial Times, Komiyama says that, as part of his recovery plan for Sony Ericsson (which is bleeding cash), a good idea would be to leverage Sony’s brand recognition in the gaming market, and that a PlayStation phone built on SE’s current Walkman and Cybershot handsets “could happen”.

Hopefully that was just a mistranslation, and Komiyama really said “should never happen, ever”.

  • A PSP (PlayStation Portable) with always-on, high-speed Internet (particularly on certain networks…) absolutely anywhere?

    Hell yes, I’d buy this in a heartbeat (though hopefully it’ll be better than the one in the picture… lol)!
