The latest big trend in gaming is portable gaming.  However, instead of people carrying a separate phone and gaming device like a PSP or DSi, people want it all on ONE device.  Is the iPhone or one of the new android phones the answer to this?  Sony says NO.  In 2011, Sony Erickson will introduce the “Playstation Phone” with fully functioning Playstation like qualities and capable of playing many of the Sony Playstation games.  Is this the answer to gaming on a cell phone?  Do you think people would switch their current phones for this phone? If you analyze the phone, is it more appealing than an iPhone or android phone?  What are some of the positives (pros) and negatives (cons) about this phone?  Explain your answers.

    I think they aren’t the answer to it. Because some people who don’t have phones yet might get one because it would be neat but if they have a good phone anyways than they probably will not. This is dumb to me because what is so bad about carrying 1 other device geese that’s lazy because 1 less device for way more money, so not worth it. But good things are there easy too carry and bad things are more money and its lazy.

    i think that yes people would switch from their regular phone for this phone because it gets them more interested in the facts about it. i also think that yes this is the answer to what people been asking for which is the phone with DSi and PSP because it looks like it contains both of the systems in one. I think that one of the bad things about this is that people would be spending more time in this phone then on doing other things they can do. i think that a good thing about this phone would be that people can get entertained more then being bored. i think that this is more good then bad because sometimes people need something that can entertain them.

    Although the phone seems cool and everything,
    I wouldn’t want one…. Why would someone spend their money on a Phone that allows you to play video games? it’s pretty much like the iphone…..
    But still I’d rather keep my phone now and my Dsi then rather a Sony phone…
    Some cons about the phone is
    If then phone costs a lot of money and you drop it and it breaks, you probably wont be able to get a replacement or your money back.

    I don’t think that the i-phone is the answer to it. I don’t think so because people want more and more. Yeah, the i-phone has apps and games you can play, but i still don’t think its the answer to what people want. I think that alot of people would switch their phones for the new play station phone. I don’t know which one id rather have, an i-phone or the new play station phone? I like the play station phone but i think that it might be too big for me. (But that doesn’t make me change my mind on buying one). I like how the phone is like a psp, but it is still a phone. I would enjoy having one. But like i said, its too big. But i guess that’s kinda good because you can see the screen more for the games.

    i think this is the answer because i dont like carrying all the extra devices. yes i do think people would switch there phones for this one because people get tired of the games on there phone. my phone is less appealing to an i phone. some good thing is you can answer the phone and play a game. a bad thing is it cant hold that much memory.

    You know im not sure on how it would be analyzed. I do know some pros and some cons though. One pro is that you can have a game and a phone in your hands at the same time. You can play your games and has phone like features. One con is that it doesn’t have a memory stick, it has a sim card like a regular phone.

    I dont think that the iPhone or Android is the answer to this . But i kind of dont think that the portable gaming system would be the best thing to because i think it would be big and bulky. Like in the pic its seems wide and long. but if you really are a true gamer then this seems like the perfect thing for you to have or use.

    Yes i think they are the answer because i phone’s and other smart phones have most of those things on there. No it’s not gaming on a cell phone because you won’t get to have any fun because your playing it on a phone. A phone doesn’t have the control to plug in or memory card. People shouldn’t buy this kind of stuff. It’s going to cost way more than the device it’s self. No people won’t switch their phones for that phone because they will just buy the play station and get a i phone or something. No it’s not appealing if i analyze the phone because it’s stupid. I would keep my phone and buy a play station. The pros for the phone is you could have a good time playing the play station game son the phone. The cons for the phone is the play station could get messed up and mess up your phone. That’s what the phone people and stuff don’t understand for real.

    i think yea it is the answer to gaming on the cell phone because other phones has boring old day games and its hard to play on there. i dont know if people would switch there phones because some people might have smart phones that they need for important stuff and some people might have a iphone and like the games they have on there. i think i like the iphone better. the pros about this phone is that people can have a phone and a gaming system on one device. the con about the phone is it wont have much memory and it might cost alot of money

    I think it could be the answer. I think people are coming around and thinking so. I think a lot of people will want this phone. I know a lot of people who love psp’s so they’ll probably like this phone. I think some people will s witch their current phones but some won’t. I would probably get this phone so I could play some games, but I probably wouldn’t play on it that much. A pro is that it’s a game station, it’s new , and probably a lot of people will buy it. Some cons are: some people who don’t really bother with gaming probably won’t buy it, and that’s probably,y about it. It has more good than bad though, so more power to the play-station phone.

    Yes the iphone is but to think about it you can download many different things on it. Cell phones really dont have all the games that you like to play like on most phones the mainly got bowling, block breaker,tumbling dice, and more. No I dont think so because that new play-station phone looks stupid and it looks like all you can do on it is play games. I think a iphone is better i would never in my life get a play-station phone.

    I have a htc running on a driod program and I love everything it does, including some of the games. Alas though when you run too many games and programs you kill your battery and start to kill your phone from lack of room left. if they can find a cure other than task killer to help the smart phones run better and more like a computer, than a playstation phone would be great! Of course I would also like to see the full key pad on it too, since i make sure my phone has the old fashion buttons, the touch screen buttons drive me insane!!

    But a latest of the big trend and the portable games system then. All of the kids and teenagers are carrying a play station portable and the intendo station I too. But all of the (pros) the negative (cons). All of the games system are having the pros and the cons who can see to make an latest game system in their lives then.

    I think people would switch there current phones for the new Sony PlayStation because it is like a phone and you can take it on the go. The reason I say this is because it could fit in your pocket and in your purse. And instead of bring your psp you can bring your Sony PlayStation. So if your some where and you need to wait you can take out the phone and play games on it. The good things and bad things about this phone is that they can probably be easier to break. And they can be a lot of money. And the good thing about this phone is that you can take it on the go and play games on it to

    This is Awesome! Why didn’t sony do this sooner! This new playstation phone is going to knock the iphone and any android phone out of the park. This new phone will be the best phone to ever came out in the century. The qualities and capabilities of this phone will get everyone to change their phones to this one because everyone likes good phone abilities and a good game once in while.

    I think they are not the answer. Yes, this is the answer for gaming on phones. I do think people will give up their phone for one of these new ones. I know i probably would. Yes it is if you analyze it.

    Pros:
    •Playing hand-held games without carrying 2 different things
    • It being really cool

    Cons:
    •Not working at all times

    It looks awesome to me very much. What I know is that it is way better in gaming than I-Phone and Android. Though, it does go down from calling. It looks mores appealing than the other 2. Though, it can break as easy. It is from Sony, no one should expect Sony to make a phone that works great for calling and texting. It is small and the screen comes out so it is as breakable or more breakable as an I-Phone.

    Some kids might want to switch this for there regular phone so they can have a phone and a psp all in one. but adults may not want this phone because they are not interested in psp’s and game systems. but this phone is also very big so it would still be like carrying two things so it doesnt matter it just depends on if you like big things and game systems

    I think this will sell very well. A good thing is you can carry one device and it will work for more than one thing. The Iphone will not be beat by the Sony Phone though. The Iphone is so convenient will helpful and fun apps. Plus, they ride on the success of the Ipod Touch.

    again, i think that this is very interesting, and i think that this is the future of gaming cell phones………even though this will be no iPhone, i personally would buy this device than an i phone……i know that this may seem odd, but the entire setup is much more eye appealing to the eye for me and this i know is true, as you probably know by now anyway. i also think that gamers out there like me and my best friend William, would not hesitate to buy this, if we had the cash in hand. anyway, you know how i feel on the subject, now, one more thing, i think that i should tell you the down falls. getting caught in class with it!!!!!!!!just kidding! i really think that the price could be a bit outrageous. that i think, might be the only thing keeping me from getting/buying this. maybe another thing would be, life time warranty ???????? would that be included? and if this product got better, would i be eligible for an upgrade? or discounts on games that i would upload in to the phone, and last but not least, what kind of plan would this contain. if these questions can be answered, than let me know…..please, and thank you:)
