More details on 3DS, PSP phone


A rumour and a leak provide more details regarding both the Nintendo 3DS and Sony's yet unannounced PlayStation Portable Phone. Firstly, Spanish website Exponente Geek claims to have taken the following snapshot from the regional GameStop website, detailing an April 7th launch date for Europe at an expected price tag of €249.


The original webpage has since been taken down, it is claimed. The Google cache does not reveal the apparent content either.

Previously, a 3DS model had apparently been smuggled out of a factory for pictures and a video. Since there have been many events already, though, at which the console was presented to the world's media (albeit it could only be filmed from the side or switched off), the impact of this story has been overstated in my mind.

Engadget, meanwhile, has published new and surprisingly high-resolution images of the PlayStation Portable Phone, Sony has yet to announce. The images show both Sony Ericsson and Xperia logos, as well as the familiar PlayStation insignia.

EDIT In his CES keyote, Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kaz Hirai hinted at other products besides the PSP Phone, as recorded by Joystiq.

Hirai teased that Sony's "strategy encompasses driving the development of a variety of new strategic products and services including tablets currently in development as well as smartphones, all the while of course integrating the know-how and the assets that we've accumulated from our PlayStation business."

What does that mean? It sounds like the PlayStation Phone is just part of the plan to leverage the PlayStation branding and games for Sony's other products. He continued, "In 2011, you will start to see an implementation of a strategy we've developed and continually refined over the past 18 months. And you will see this strategy executed in the form of great new products and services coming to market that leverage Sony's strongest assets. In addition to launching a line of Sony tablets, we'll be building upon the video, music, game and book offerings on our Qriocity and our PlayStation Network services to deliver a compelling, unique experience for Sony across a wide range of consumer electronic devices."


EDIT The matter regarding the PlayStation Phone is getting ridiculous now: a Chinese website has just published videos (via Engadget). I guess Sony is holding out until February 14th to reveal the device at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

psp phone shows the psp brand and the PlayStation brand as diluted it has no weight in its own right anymore,,, this clearly shows its a dead brand and a dead force the PlayStation phone is nothing but a android phone using a PlayStation name as a addition and the touch pad analogs is the dumbest idea iv ever seen.. sonys analog sticks were bad these will be no better than a iphone touch screen analog pointless and laggy.....

with so many smartphones already established and no psp cross back compatabillity i really do not se any reason for its existence

sad fanboys will buy it then it will just fade away iphone 4 samsung wave etc are too strong for psp phone to take over psp phone will go down in flames along with windows phone 7

3DS can fall into good but not great status if nintendo are big headed but i think they know this plenty of DS like touch gen mainstream software combined with movies media and all the 1st party core games will see it be a huge success and 3rd partys will back 3DS more than any nintendo system in history with monster hunter crossing over from psp IT WILL BE UNSTOPPABLE AND BEAT DS NUMBERS OR AT LEAST MATCH THEM....

BUT I CAN SEE WITH MONSTER HUNTER ITS GOING TO OWN JAPAN LIKE NEVER BEFORE AND 3D WILL SEE IT SHINE IN THE WEST

its so core and casual COUGH at the same time and combines console and hand held ability's into a great device

be it COD online in 3D with voice chat or 3D video chat or 3D casual puzzle games it will do it all and will show signs of what wii 2 will be about
