Xperia Play Commercial Airs During Super Bowl


We’ve known about the Xperia Play for quite awhile and it’s been rumored for years since people pretty much projected a Playstation phone as a logical consumer product extension for Sony. Somehow, I missed the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play commercial during the Super Bowl, but YouTube hooked me up with the rerun:

When I first saw it, I thought they were operating Saw style on the Android Robot, but they’re kindly equipping him with thumbs so he can play games. Definitely a bit weird and a little creepy, but as long as they bring that bad boy to market quickly, we’ll forgive them for the awkward black market surgery.

  1. kind of bizarre a commercial lol

  2. Was anyone else shocked to see this announcement? I was not expecting this.

  3. Weird commercial….

  4. am i the only one who thought the thumbs looked like penises?

  5. That commercial makes me uncomfortable.

  6. I thought they were just cutting holes in the Android so the guy on the inside CAN stick his thumbs out. LoL!! I’m such an Uber Newb.

    When I seen this commercial, I almost cried when I seen the phone. LoL!! Sony is known to be on AT&T, but I’d love this to be on Tmo so I can have 4G data speeds instead of unlocking from AT&T and using Edge. -_-

  7. rofl, like this phone would have 4g capabilities, considering the last gen specs being used.

  8. Lol that was a cool commercial

  9. I like it

  10. I wonder what carrier this will be on. The only way to get good sales are to put it on every carrier.

  11. If the rumours are true of it going to t-mobile.. then im still not buying it especially after their track record and what their doing with ps3. Sony products practically are rental devices, or at least thats how they treat you. look at the hacking community for ps3 and you will know what I mean. They have no respect for their consumers.

  12. It would have been less creepy if they gave him green robot looking thumbs. Same idea.

  13. @mariela yes.. haha. just some plastic android thumbs would have made the video more pleasant.
    But i dont like pleasant, i like gruesome! lol

  14. @phoenix, no, the wife and I though the same thing haha… it was awkward but funny!

  15. Seeing how myself and most of my guests were glued to the game and most of the commercials sucked, I missed this one.

  16. Interesting :S

  17. Uber Creepy, Android Undead where’s the nutrient feed ?

  18. cool but creepy as well. Good ad

  19. I will never buy another SE product ever again!

  20. Got to say that was an effed up commercial, lol I didn’t realize what to expect. I will say that they should have Mr. Andy play with a Xperia Play with his new thumbs ;)

  21. Does anyone remember the original PS3 commercials???? I’d go as far to say they were 8.7 x more f’d up than this


  22. Out. Sony’s lack of support is rivaled only by Samsung.
