NowGamer can confirm that the Engadet photos are fakes...
Sony has now 'clarified' its official line on the PlayStation Phone and told NowGamer: "We do not comment on rumour and speculation."
Looks too much like the PSPgo, don't think Sony would linger on that design when the iPhone is doing so well...
pffft look at some of you it was only a while ago everyone was believing it and now that they said its fake everyone is all i knew it looked like crap anyways etc etc lol
You expect Sony to say, "Yeah that's the PSPhone we've been working on in secret. It's unannounced and we wont admit we're working one, but yeah that it." And we all know that spokesmen are the most honest of the PR people. Remember the leaked PS3 part that were supposedly fake or even the PSP Go before is was announced. Yeah, those were all fake too.
I thought Engadget was legit because they've have exclusive shows with Playstation Move... I didn't excpect them to make up some bullshots of a fake PSP just for some extra views when they even had people from Sony visit them and show them their previous new technology... Sad.
^^^ it's not fake!! what else can Sony say? it may be a prototype, early model, whatever, but it's everything but fake
Hooooray!!!!! Screw the idea for a "PSPhone". Making it a phone will only confuse consumers on its focal point, and it would've contradicted their latest PSP commercials, too.
@crazy Second comment in this thread and you've already concluded that absolutely everyone thought it was real and have now flip-flopped into thinking its fake. Wow
They have a new article saying its real
well if the images were LEAKED would they really come out and say yes its real and yes were working on it? isn't it normal to deny that an unfinished unannounced product is in production?
They would say 'no comment'. They would only say it's fake if it is actually fake, otherwise they look like tards down the line.
"They would say 'no comment'. " From the article: "NowGamer also contacted Sony Ericsson for a comment. A spokesperson responded, 'Sony Ericsson does not comment on rumour or speculation'."
If Sony always said 'no comment' when a rumor is real and said it is fake only when it was really fake we would always know where a rumor is real or fake. :-/
Saying "no comment" doesnt make it real either. There's been tons of rumors from Sony before, all which gotten the same "no comment" treatment, do you seiously believe all of the rumors are real ? It's their policy, no matter how fake or real it would seem.
. That's why I always choose "Hard to tell". The safest choice, lol.
"We do not comment on rumour and speculation." means they will not say either way. If it's real, then they will say "We do not comment on rumour and speculation." and then wen it releases they will say they didn't want to oust it before release, and if fake they will be like "We do not comment on rumour and speculation."
I was wondering why there was dirt around the screen. Damn and I was going to buy one too.
Sony: "PlayStation Phone Is Fake" - Sony DID NOT say that. "We do not comment on rumours and speculations" Same old line they used for every other leak. - NowGamer's evidence as to why it is fake is basically non-existent. (a bit of dust???? is dust a rare thing now???) - Endgadget has been known to get a hold of tech early. iPhone 4??? - This article is a RUMOUR.
This isn't from a no name site, its engadget. They showed leaks of the ps3 slim long ago and sony deneid it. I think in regards of this phone, they're pulling off a Gizmodo(refer to iphone 4 leak). No company likes to commment on this kind of stuff.
Engadget are sure it's not fake http://www.engadget.com/201...
Oh my god a company denying leaks, thats unheard of http://www.engadget.com/201...
Seriously, this thing looks cheap, way too cheap to be a Sony product.
I mean, what would be next? A PSP anus?
They did say this was a prototype and it didn't contain the real skin... its annoying how so many people are jumping out now to say its fake when a few hours ago almost no one had a doubt.
SONY products tend to look "cheap" in general.. their laptop lines are atrocious.
Uh... What? http://www.sonystyle.com/we...
Oh please.. those look like shit. Try something with a little more finesse, you're also paying for crappy hardware. http://shop.lenovo.com/us/n... Thinkpads are notorious for having the best keyboards of any laptop. I have a T61.
I using sony laptop 16.4" screen. it look very nice and worth it expensive price aside the it get dirty easily need to clean every while.
Ive had two HPs and three Dell computers over my life time. All of them were garbage. I have one Sony Vaio and its much better then anything I previously had.
I have never owned any sony laptops, because they are usually out of my price range. Having said that, those laptops that TroyAndABed linked are gorgeous. You look stupid when you say they look like shit - losing credibility and bubbles in the process. my .02
Too cheap to be a pure Sony product but not a Sony Ericsson one, the build quality on their phones of late has be very poor.
It can look like whatever they want until the final design is made... P.R.O.T.O.T.Y.P.E.S look shity... they always do.
how about this Sony product? http://media.phpnuke.org/sc... or its predecessor? http://z.about.com/d/cellph... Sony makes budget products just like everyone else.
i knew it nothing looked playstation about it besides the buttons
I'd be excited for a PS Phone, but this thing is ugly. There's no way it would be produced by Sony.
It looked way too rubbish to be real anyway.
Good! Cuz if the psp2 is a phone I won't be getting it since I just bought a phone, and a phone with controllers just seems odd
And as such, it obviously won't have 'retail' finish. I don't think it's fake at all.
Sony themselves say it's fake. Not that they won't comment - it's fake.
I can't find it. Looks like NowGamer updated the article.
Even though Sony have just confirmed 100% that it's a fake? Man, you must really want to believe.
Where is it confirmed?
doesn't comment on rumors, so that is weird. I think the phone is real, I think this is fake.
...but I don't see any official confirmation that these are fake. Just 'We do not comment on rumours and speculations'. Right. Bioware did exactly the same with ME2 coming to PS3. All faults found by NowGamer (dust, overall crappy finish) are symptoms of every prototype device. It's like Alpha version for games. Also, leaked PS3 Slim was 'fake' too.
Neither do we see any official confirmation that it's real, we only got Engadget's word on this and them alone.
krisq puts forth valid points, those arguing with him are being a bit ignorant. Sony did not say "it is fake". How quickly people forget about the PSPgo leaks, they said the exact same thing then as well!!!! "We do not comment on rumours and speculations"
Crap. Seriously? That's too bad, was really hoping for a PS Phone... :(
They didn't say the Playstation Phone wasn't happening, they said the pictures were fake.
But I want it now!! (screams like a 10 year old brat) hehe, no but seriously, the pics were such a tease...!
I'm already phoning with my psp, using Skype...
I had my doubts
just because the photos are fake doesnt mean that the phone doesnt exist they never say the phone is fake and SE didnt even comment
This is said to launch in 2011 according to Engadget, if that's the case then when the heck are Sony going to release the PSP2? Come on man use your brain. @Below: That would be the most dumbest marketing decision in the history of marketing decisions.
of the PSP2? CES 2011, should be hot.
I knew it was fake! Sony loyalists gathered yesterday in a Baboon meeting getting all over exited for a lame ass shoddy designed PSP Phone that looks like it came from the year 2000. It's so easy to fool the lot of you.
The top screen does look dirty as the article suggests. There's loads of dirt inside the screen groove. I'd guess that devs would handle a prototype with more care. Anyway, the 'idea' is cool. Sony PSP with Android support would be a great thing, open the homebrew right up.
I'm glad this was fake 1) Doesn't look too good 2) I wan't Sony to focus on making the PSP2
Sony keep saying that they cant comment on speculation and rumors but they'll eventually have to make a move in the handheld market.
Why though? PSP sales are suffering. Wouldn't it make sense to get out of that space if it's not working for them? Granted, they could be working on something incredible that we don't know about, but we'll have to wait and see.
Sony are not doing well in the handheld space compared to Nintendo and Apple iDevices. This is Fact in terms of Sales. And I cannot see the PSP2 outselling the Nintendo 3DS at all. If they want a fighting chance they need to push the device to even further multi purposes and give it a built in phone feature on top of dual analogs and a touch screen option for txting/keypad etc.
I was waiting on th PSPhone, but it seems the PSPhone still havent came. I guess Engadget was tripping, just ego tripping!
Personally, i'd prefer a PSP2 over a PSP Phone- especially if it has two proper sticks.
wtf is this site talking about. its not fake, just cause sony didnt comment now its fake? wow, these guys put up articles about it being fake for hits with ABSOLUTELY NO PROOF ITS FAKE.
The article has a direct quote from Sony. What are you on about?
We still do not know. The standard response from sony about anything is 'we do not comment on speculation or rumour'. That does not confirm it is fake at all, they are not going to say, yes its real. Seriously guys, this article has no information in it whatsoever, that is a standard response.
LOL, do you really believe this clown?
Do you really believe it's an actual quote from Sony? It's Now Gamer we're talking about...LOL. People will do anything for a few hits, it's a shame.
'Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has since confirmed its official line on the rumoured phone as, "We do not comment on rumour and speculation." NowGamer also contacted Sony Ericsson for a comment. A spokesperson also responded, "Sony Ericsson does not comment on rumour or speculation" However, NowGamer still understands that the images are indeed fake.' yeah sure nowgamer,no sony representative said it's fake at all
Article was changed, read between the lines...
then change the headline
Well have to wait and see what the end product looks like. And the true PSP 2 better not be a phone, I won't buy it if that's the case.
@Feckles: Where's your proof? So you're saying you got an email from Sony stating "PSP Phone is fake"? How unprofessional - I'm calling BS on this one. Besides, didn't the Playstation Twitter Team already acknowledge the phone? Proof of Sony's comment or you're full of it.
