Sony Xperia Play

By now we are all aware of the fact that Sony Ericsson has made the XPERIA play official. The company did so at last weekend’s Super Bowl where an ad depicting the device was shown to millions of hungry football fans.

In the commercial, a man was running along a dimly lit city street passing dingy workers rushing to deliver something to a surgeon. Only thing about the surgeon is he was grafting human legs and thumbs to a 3 foot replica of Google’s famous Android robot.

The commercial had been leaked before, but this was the first time that it as being shown in all its glory, err goriness. In the commercial, thanks to the thumbs from the human, the Android robot is able to use the XPERIA Play, yes, creepy, but then again we can always assume the limbs were from a cadaver so no harm done right? The Android robot seems delighted by the end of the commercial as its antenna continues flipping back and forth with glee.

And why not, after all, the phone it is using sports a 1GHz processor, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and all the power of the Android marketplace such as Gmail, GoogleTalk, GoogleVoice, Google Maps, Google Goggles, and if your phone is lost Outlook Mobile Security, not to mention the fact that gaming will now be second nature to Android, thanks to Sony’s resolution to bring the PlayStation world to Android.

Yes, the commercial is highly disturbing but I’m sure Sony achieved its objective, it had more than a few people talking about the commercial, and in today’s world, the more controversial a commercial is, the more effective it is as well. Then again Sony is no stranger to controversy, thanks to its previous PlayStation 3 commercials which dabbled in scenes from World War 2 which were none too pleasant.
