When it comes to game consoles, Sony is already a big deal. For many gamers, the PlayStation brand is synonymous with high-end gaming. However, in the field of mobile video games, the Japanese manufacturer has never made a breakthrough despite numerous attempts. Neither the PlayStation Portable nor the PlayStation Vita could ever top the mighty Nintendo handheld console. And the Xperia Play gaming mobile phone, which specializes in gaming, also remained a niche product. Now, apparently, Sony dares to attack the mobile gaming division again.
Teaser does not indicate a new smartphone
The video shows a young man playing on a smartphone that looks very conventional with no pull-down buttons or similar features. It seems extremely unlikely that Sony will release a gaming-focused phone that doesn’t have any physical input options, especially since there’s no evidence that the company has such a new smartphone in the works. The question marks left by Sony’s announcement in the gaming community are just as big.
