The Xperia Play Almost Formally Announced

If you watched the Super Bowl last night, you probably saw the creepy commercial where the Droid alien gets human thumbs sewn to his arms. Good times.

That’s the unveiling of the Xperia Play from Sony Ericcson, and that’s about as close as we’re going to get to a formal announcement for the PlayStation Phone. Or, perhaps, that is the PlayStation Phone, renamed to avoid confusion in a PSP product line… much like the NGP.

Sony Ericcson’s Facebook page has been splashed with this graphic.

Enter the page and you’ll see the trailer from the Super Bowl. So weird.

We’ll have more on this as it develops. However, the unit is almost assuredly going to take advantage of the recently announced PlayStation Suite, the service that will bring PSOne games to the Android Marketplace. Details will definitely surface on the 13th of this month, as the splash screen above indicates.
