first_imgRumors of Sony’s next-gen PlayStation Portable bifurcate into rumors about two distinct devices. On one hand, there’s the PSP2 proper, which is said to boast dual analog control sticks, Xbox 360 level graphical abilities and a rear touch panel. On the other hand, there’s the PlayStation Phone, designed by Sony Ericsson… and which looks like it very well may debut at Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress in February 2011.It’s speculation, true, but here’s what we know. According to Sony Ericsson CEO Bert Bordberg, Sony Ericsson will be showing off a new gamer’s phone at MWC 2011.AdChoices广告If that wasn’t enough to make you suspect the phone he’s talking about was the PlayStation Phone, though, Nordberg then went on to say the following:“I’m very glad that we work with a company like Sony, who actually knows how to [negotiate games rights]… Sony has an extremely strong offering in the gaming market, and that’s very interesting… Sony is of course a very strong brand, and why shouldn’t we use that? Gaming, including content, is a very interesting proposition. Nordberg’s comments sure seem like he’s just itching to reveal the PlayStation Phone right then and there, but it’s still unknown what the actual capabilities of the PlayStation Phone will be. My guess is that it’ll be an Android phone that is also capable of playing Sony’s existing library of PSP games and not share the capabilities of the PSP2, but it also could be an entirely new device aimed at gamers that Sony’s agreed to lend a few of its more popular franchises to. Only MWC will tell.Read more at Wall Street Journallast_img
