PSPhone appears in a Sony-Ericsson hosted contest

Do you remember the Playstation Phone that we featured around a month ago? Accordingly, Sony Ericsson is planning to create a device that combines communication and gaming functions alike. After that, no more word were further heard regarding the project. So, we could only imagine the Japanese-Swedish conglomerate's surprise when the PSPhone appears in one of their contests.

As part of their 5th year anniversary celebration, Sony Ericsson hosted a Concept Phone Design Competition. Participants are students of various Chinese universities and colleges. The contest was welcomed well and designs came in droves and various concepts. Some look normal enough, while the others seem to have come from an advance civilization from far away.

This is the phone that's gonna make me a cell phone user. I phone for a gamer. With this phone i don't have to worry about what limitation my phone has far as gaming. Is it brew or Java, does it run windows or PalmOs it wouldn't matter now i just need for there to be some more great games coming from that PSP farm and I'll be set.

if they make their mobile games playable on ps5 and their maybe new handheld, that would be huge. cause i aint playing any free games on my phone, cause mobile games suck. haha.

I like mobile games, but the problem for me is that «free games» usually has alot of p2w or other microtransaction connected to them. LoL, Hearthstone, civ, fm etc is great on iPad 😊 Would love to see rise of kingdoms etc Get rid of p2w formula.

Does anyone remember PS MInis from the PS3 era? I feel like most of those were mobile games that were ported...No reason they couldn't do that again I suppose. :)

gold_drake3d ago

yeeeess i had some of them haha

P_Bomb3d ago

Ha, I remember those! They didn’t have trophies so I’ve lost track of most of them, but I remember Hysteria Project and Angry Birds.

I feel like people don't understand what mobile gaming is anymore.

It's not the button phone cheap Tetris clones or movie licensed stuff anymore.

Mobile gaming is huge games like Genshin Impact Honkai: Star Rail, Wuthering Waves, Amazon and Bandai/Namco's Blue Protocol games with budgets that rival and even exceed AAA, but even things like CoD and other big western games have mobile versions.

All the games listed also have PC and console versions.

Sony already owns several big mobile games most famously Fate/Grand Order.

gold_drake3d ago

i feel like you are overblowing what other ppl have said ha.

most mobiles are still very much your gatcha style of gaming.

the games u listed, absolutely, but that wasnt even my comment. mobile games, if they are not on anything else, sucks. so to have them on a handheld with buttons or on a console to, would be a win for me

I'm going to say this and ether A: I'm crazy or B: I'm crazy, but do any of you remember when Sony years back had the Xperia Play. Touched one never got it myself. If Sony is looking for a handheld (Look at Apple with the games it can run on there own devices) I wonder if maybe, just maybe they try to make a play for the Phone space again. Just my 2 cents, well with inflations I guess my 2 dimes.

Make an Xperia Play 2 that actually has functionality with the PS5 and I might bite! Loved the Xperia Play, showing off Crash Bandicoot on it was great but that's the only game I had for it.
