Opinion: Do we really want the 'PlayStation Phone'? | Pocket Gamer

Pocket Gamer:

So, are they fake or are they real? If you’re a believer, then it would appear that the first solid details of the long-rumoured PlayStation Phone have finally leaked out in a surprisingly solid form.

Tech website Engadget claims to have pictures of a prototype unit. Along with them comes reported confirmation of the internal specifications. So – if true - we now have a pretty complete idea of what the PlayStation Phone is going to offer.

Of course, a rather confusing Sony statement which changed from “definitely fake” to “no comment” in the blink of an eye hasn’t helped settle the debate. It has to be said that the pictures look pretty rough, but what prototype doesn’t?

We thought we’d chew over some of the pictures and figures and offer an early opinion based on the age-old assumption that there’s no smoke without fire.

I want a handheld that has a 3G/4G data network, but I dont want to be tied down to one service. But I bet the international plan will be pretty good. We will see.

Not at this time.

It's unlikely to fulfill all of my primary needs in a phone but will be a great gaming device. Also, it won't play my iTunes media on it. The question is if I can get the 'phone' and use it completely as a gaming device without having to activate it or will certain features rely on being tied to a provider.

It would also have to be made for all providers.

No,I just bought an Xperia X10 goddamn it!
I want a PSP 2. Free of phone capabilities, and perhaps free of charge?
I mean, is it that much to ask?

RayRay362819d ago

I dont have a cell phone or a PSP, but if the PSPhone is just the PSP2 with a phone, then yes. Very much so.
