New Xperia Play Ad Even Creepier Than The First

March 16, 2011Written by Sebastian Moss

The first PlayStation Certified phone, Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Play aims to bring the magic of PlayStation to the mobile market, with physical gaming buttons differentiating it from the host of other smartphone’s. Officially announced during the the US Superbowl, the phone was debuted with a slightly creepy video showing the Android Mascot with thumbs. But how exactly did the mascot get its digits? Find out in the latest advert for the mobile.

Travelling abroad can be fraught with dangers, with tourists often fearing that they’ll be victims of crime, or succumb to a tropical disease. Now it looks like you’ll have to watch out for something else – waking up with no thumbs:

The Xperia Play will cost £599 in the UK, and €649 in Spain off contract, but other nation’s price points remains to be revealed – including the US. Are you ready to use your thumbs for handheld gaming on a mobile? Let us know in the comments below.
