    L1. L2. R1. R2. If those aren’t ringing any bells, you’ve really gotta spend some time with a Playstation.

    Earlier in the week we had what I might consider the worst spy video I’ve ever seen, of the so-called Playstation Phone, the Zeus.

    The idea of an Android-based Playstation phone doesn’t make a great deal of sense to me, and Sony Ericsson seem to agree with me — at least on the branding.

  • The Playstation Phone Appears To Exist

    I don’t know what to say about this bizarro device. I mean… as a game platform it depends entirely on the games. As hardware it’s… difficult to say until you hold the thing.
