[READ AND ANSWER EACH QUESTION AND WATCH THE VIDEOS BEFORE YOU ANSWER THE QUESTIONS OR YOU WILL GET ZERO CREDIT]

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 Xperia Play or “Playstation Phone” with fully functioning Playstation like qualities and capable of playing many of the Sony Playstation games.

A)  Is this the answer to gaming on a cell phone?

B)  Do you think people would switch their current phones for this phone?  Why or why not?

C)  If you analyze the phone, is it more appealing than an iPhone or an android phone?

D)  Give me a comparison/contrast with what are some of the positives (pros) and negatives (cons) about this phone?  Explain your answers.

    A. I say no because it would be like REALLY expensive but I say yeah because it might just be worth the price. Also it would be really fun. And everyone is going to want one because you can do so much on it, and it the new thing.

    B. Some people would because its really cool and they can afford it, but some people wont because it cost too much money and they strongly believe phones should only be used for calling in texting nothing more.

    C.It could be because it may have more apps, and the price could be worth it, and there is A LOT more things you can do so I guess yeah if you analyzed it it would be more appealing.

    D.Positive-You will have many things to do on this phone, Its portable, its a lot of fun, its new. Negative-Other people who sell phones and don’t have that particular phone might go out of business, its expensive.

    A) i think it is the answer and i think when its in stores its going to sale quickly.

    C) i think that the iphone and android look better then that phone.

    D) the bad things about the phone are it will probly break easily. two of the buttons are switched and its kinda hard to take the back off. the good thing is its all together and you don’t have to keep switching from your phone to your psp.

    a- no i think it aint that good of an idea because you can get all that on the iphone, and you can get all the games playstations have on the apps. and it will just be more money to spend if they had the psp to a actual phone.

    b- i dont think they would change phones becuase all those phones are to expensive and they have the same quiltys.
    c-to me it aint really that much more than appealing.
    d-a postitve thing is it can play games and its a phone, and a negitive is that it

    a)i like it but now its the fact of how much will it be, it’s lykke how much would a phone be hat has a psp or any game system made in it without switching out devices just to get on a phone or just to get on a psp.
    b)yes i think tht people would want to buy the phonee and not have to be worryin about switching phones or gaming devices,i think tht many people will buy it no matter how much it cost.atleast you pay that much only one timee i think that,that is a good price for all of that to be in one device.
    c)i do think that this is nore appealing than a android phone and a iphone.because its all together not apart.!!
    d)i think that is all pros but the cons is how much it cost.

    A. I believe this could be the answer to gaming on cellphones considering the fact that most games on cellphones aren’t really that good and most of the time require purchase of the full version.
    B. Of course I think people will prefer this phone over their current ones. It’s the very first PSP and phone mixed in one! Also, it’s the newest thing so it’s going to automatically be popular.
    C. I believe this depends on a person’s wants. If they are more of a video game playing person then yeah this phone would probably be their phone of choice.
    D. Well the positives are the obvious. The fact that you can have all the pleasure of having a psp while also having a phone with it is what is good about the product. As far as negatives, I would say that this phone could easily get addictive when put into the wrong hands.

    A). I think this is the answer to mobile gaming. It is a phone and a awesome game system all in one device.

    B). I think a lot of people will switch phones. It all also depends on the phone company it is released on. I think it will be a big success.

    C). I think it is more appealing than Iphone or Android because it is a real game system. Why play apps when you can play games like WWE: Smackdown vs. RAW 2oo11?

    D). Compare: Both are Phones. Both play some kind of game.
    Contrast: Playstation Phone plays real video games, Iphone and Android only have apps.
    Pros: Would be fun to have.
    Cons: Short battery life. Games interrupted by phone calls.

    A.Well i would buy this phone becouse it is the future of gaming on a phone. nor the android or iphone can actually have all the games this could have on it.
    B. unless you are a gamer then people arent going to switch from their phone to this one.
    C. this phone is a very good looking cell phone and yes it does look better than the android or iphone.
    D.i dont think that there really is a bad thing about this phone. i think its perfect for me. but in the videos i dont think it showed that it could text so i would have to have texting. so thats something bad about it.

    A) Is this the answer to gaming on a cell phone?
    i think yes because many people want a phone and gaming system.

    B) Do you think people would switch their current phones for this phone? Why or why not?
    Yes because many people want would like to play games some where other then there house. and with the new playstation phone you can do that and text/talk with it to.

    C) If you analyze the phone, is it more appealing than an iPhone or an android phone? I think it is because i like slide up phones look better and are better then other phone.

    D) Give me a comparison/contrast with what are some of the positives (pros) and negatives (cons) about this phone? Explain your answers.
    some of the positive (pros) about the play station phone is that you can play it out side of your house and use it as a phone. Some of the negatives (cons) about it is that some people might prefer there phone over it and that it might not be as good as other phones and devices.

    A.) There are already many devices that are very close to this exact design. So, i don’t necessarily think this is the answer to gaming. But, i know it will definitely sell. And that’s probably the single most important thing about making this.

    B.) Only the people who don’t have a phone with games on it. The people who are huge gamers will surely buy this phone. It Is a phone for those type of people anyways.

    C.) To me, it’s just another type of phone like the iphone or android. But i have to admit, it is definitely something I’d buy.

    D.) Pro(s): It will sell
    It’s a game system/phone
    more portable than a psp
    Con(s): There are already many devices like this
    Alot of company’s have already sold things better than this but with same basic features

    c.) in a way yes, but it more for the purpose of gaming my texting and calling people.

    d.) good for gaming, bad for communicating.

    I think that this could be the answer to gaming on cell phones because of people pushing for a phone that can play games. People may switch there phones to this if they play a lot of portable games. But people that just like a simple phone or just don’t mind carrying more than one portable item may not. Some very noticeable pro’s from the video’s are that the phone obviously does a lot of wanted things more than just call and play games, There are music apps, 5 megapixel camera, and web search. But some cons are that they haven’t quite got it figured out for the gaming part and it runs a little slow. But analyzing the phone it is pretty appealing. And in my opinion i would choose it over a android or iphone because of all it can do, But at the same time it does just about as much as a android or iphone.

    A.) for people who like cell phones and video games , this is for them .

    B.) not all people , but some would . not everyone would even use this .

    C.) no , because the i phone has where you can download games and apps , and it has a lot more things included . and they’re coming up with a lot of new ideas for iphone .

    D.) good – gaming .
    bad – communication , paying attention .
    Good – is good for gaming because its based on basically PlayStation and Sony games .
    Bad – the phone itself cant be good itself for communication because its all based on PlayStation and they wont think people are going to be using it for themselves, not just games. and its bad for paying attention , because if there playing a game, they’ll get so wrapped up in the game, they wont be paying attention to what there doing.

    A) Honestly just me being me i think its stupid … it looks cool and all but like these portable game systems are for people who are on the road or somewhere where they have nothing to do … people who are bored with there lives are the ones who would find this interesting …..

    B) I know for sure i wouldn’t switch phones… what are you supossed to do game call people o mean seriously come to reality and out of game world people……!

    C) Not to me but my opinion doesn’t count for everyones !

    D) i mean the possitive things are that you can txt game and call people all you want but the negitive things are that i just dont like it and it seems kinda extreme.
