Tech enthusiasts have seen numerous leaked prototypes of Sony Ericsson’s Playstation Phone. In fact, Engadget had a prototype of this device for the past month or so.

All the rumours were finally laid to rest when Sony Ericsson officially unveiled the device  at the Mobile World Congress(MWC).

The Sony Xperia Play shares the same design DNA as the Sony PSP Go and has roughly similar specifications as the Xperia Arc. The Play however lacks the 8MP camera and HDMI out port.

The Xperia Play, along with the with Xperia Arc and Xperia Neo and Xperia Pro will come with Playstation Suite. The latter is a mobile gaming hub designed to take on Apple’s GameCenter. This is a logical step by Sony, given its gaming pedigree and its well established Playstation Network. This suite will initially be a PS One Emulator which will evolve into an Android game store later this year.

Game on.
