Sony has officially confirmed the existence of its long-rumored Playstation Phone. The device, titled the Xperia Play, was announced during last night’s Super Bowl in a TV spot.
The new phone, developed by Sony Ericsson, seems to be a traditional Android phone that has ditched a sliding keyboard in favor of a controller pad layout. More details are set to be released Feb. 13 when the company makes its official announcement on the Ericsson Facebook page.
Watch the bizarre announcement video below, which features the lovable green Android alien getting a back-alley surgical thumb attachment, rendering him “ready to play.”
