This is interesting. Since Sony are stopping making portable gaming consoles due to the loss of sales (because of smartphones apparently) maybe sony can make a smartphone that is both good to use as a phone and as a gaming device, the xperia play 2!

Though wasn't the main reason sony ditched the play because of how it conflicted with their psp sales? So we can only hope i guess

That's just the end of life of the PSP. It's been for a long time on the market. I haven't expected it to be still produced to be honest. Either way - I'm not really sure about the Xperia Play 2. I'd love to see that, but not if they'd treat it like our old xperia play, which is still a great device for me.

I'm buying an iPhone 5S this week from Swappa. I've never wanted an iPhone, but I have 2 iPad's and a lot of iOS games purchased. This is going to be awesome.

If the PS Vita were selling well, I think it would be possible. But an Xplay 2 now will be definitely sentence the vita to death, that's why I think sony will stay with the idea of a new Xplay on the closet for some more time.

you see sony is so backwards! They didnt want to make the xperia play 2 in the first place because they were worried about the xperia play 2 interfering with psp and vita sales and now there killing the psp because its killing there xperia sales maybe? make up your minds or more importantly make the xperia play 2! People want a multi device these days not just games, people want to call on the same device that they play hardcore games on.

I don't know if you haven't read the article or if you just don't know the difference between a PSP and a PSVita. If Sony is stopping selling PSP is because it's a console presented ten years ago! It has nothing to do with the smartphones.

That's not true. Just look at the crazy numbers of sales that Nintendo is having with their handheld.

I understand the purchase if you say that you have a lot of titles bought for iOS, but this controller is simply horrible. Too little, no analogs... How the hell can this be for hardcore gaming?
