ソニー・エリクソンのMWC 2011イベントで、「プレイステーション携帯」こと Xperia PLAY もついに正式発表を迎えました。ソニエリ幹部による年単位のほのめかし、昨年 Engadget がお伝えしたプロトタイプ写真、そして中国語圏での盛大な流出など発表前にして長い歴史を持つ Xperia PLAYですが、存在が公式に認められたのは先週の不気味なコマーシャルが初めて。本日のMWCプレスイベントで、とうとう製品として正式発表されたことになります。

おさらいすれば、Xperia Play はスライド筐体にゲーム用のボタンを備え、初代PSゲームを含む " PlayStation Suite " コンテンツに対応するAndroidスマートフォン。1月のPlayStation Meeting 2011で発表されたPlayStation Suite (プレイステーション スイート)とは、Androidスマートフォンやタブレット向けにソニーが管理する「プレイステーションならではのコンテンツ」を提供する戦略。当初は初代PSゲームをダウンロード販売するほか、年内にはAndroid端末で動く独自のソフトウェアプラットフォームを制定しカジュアル寄りのゲームを販売することで、携帯電話ゲーム人口を獲得する狙いです。

ただし市場にはインターフェースも性能も違う膨大な種類のAndroidデバイスが存在するため、ソニーは「この製品ではPlayStation Suiteが楽しめます」というPlayStation Certified 認定プログラムを実施します。本日正式に発表された Xperia Play はPS Certified 認定第一弾の純正 PS Suite対応端末という位置づけ。

Android携帯としての主な仕様は4インチ854 x 480 マルチタッチ液晶ディスプレイ、1GHz Snapdragon プロセッサ、背面に5Mピクセルカメラ(AF、LEDライトつき)、ステレオスピーカー、Bluetooth、WiFiなど。ソフトウェアは Android 2.3 Gingerbread + ソニエリ独自のカスタマイズUI。ゲームボタンはデジタル方向ボタン、4ボタン、スタート・セレクト、背面にLR、中央にはアナログスティックのかわりにデュアルスライドパッド。凹凸で指がどの方向に入力しているか分かりやすくなっています。L2R2は非搭載。

Xperia Playは欧州やアジアの一部市場から3月中に発売予定。人気のAndroid用ゲームおよび「伝説的な」初代PSタイトルがプリインストールされるほか (クラッシュ・バンディクーとか)、20社以上のパブリッシャーから50本以上のロンチタイトルが用意されます。50本のうち一部はXperia Play向けにコンテンツを追加した既存Androidタイトル。うち何本が「独占」なのか、あるいはXperia Play のゲームコントロール部に対応させたものなのかは未詳です。

PlayStation Suite は言わば Androidの上に新しい「仮想プレイステーション」プラットフォームを構築しライセンス商売をする動きですが、 Android の父ことGoogle アンディ・ルービン氏のコメントは「Xperia PLAY そして PlayStation Certifiedゲームは、オープンなAndroidエコシステムではどんなイノベーションが可能かを示すとても良い例です」。続きはプロモ動画3本とソニエリ発表全文、詳細なソフトウェア・ハードウェア仕様。

蛇足:年末に登場予定の携帯ゲーム機 NGPもPlayStation Suite コンテンツに対応します。

February 13, 2011, Barcelona, Spain – Sony Ericsson today announced the game changing XperiaTM PLAY, the latest phone in its XperiaTM range of Android based smartphones.

XperiaTM PLAY delivers the smartphone functionality that the most serious power users could need, teamed with the immersive gaming experience that any gamer would want.

In portrait mode, the Android smartphone offers all the benefits that users have come to expect from Sony Ericsson's existing range of XperiaTM smartphones with best-in-class entertainment experiences, a great 5 megapixel camera, a brilliant 4" multi-touch screen and great social networking features.

However, slide out the gaming control and users enter a new world of immersive mobile gaming. The slide out game pad reveals a digital D pad, two analogue touch pads, two shoulder buttons and the four PlayStation icons: circle, cross, square and triangle. Qualcomm's optimized Snapdragon processor with a 1Ghz CPU and embedded Adreno GPU graphics processor deliver silky smooth 60fps play-back 3D mobile gaming and Web browsing with minimal power consumption so Xperia PLAY users can enjoy long hours of battery life and game time.

Rikko Sakaguchi, Executive Vice President and Chief Creation Officer at Sony Ericsson commented: "Today is a very proud moment for Sony Ericsson as we bring something truly revolutionary to the market. Living up to our vision of Communication Entertainment, Xperia PLAY will forever change the way people think about smartphones and mobile gaming.

XperiaTM PLAY will run on Gingerbread (version 2.3), the latest version of Google's AndroidTM platform. The XperiaTM PLAY will also be the first PlayStation Certified device. This means it will have access to PlayStation® game content provided through the PlayStation® Suite initiative, currently under development by Sony Computer Entertainment and due to launch later this calendar year.

Kazuo Hirai, President of Networked Products and Services Group at Sony Corporation said: "I am delighted to see Xperia PLAY as the first PlayStation Certified smartphone to hit the market. Xperia PLAY provides a unique consumer offering and is yet another example of great products and services coming to market that leverage Sony's strong assets."

Sony Ericsson has partnered with key publishers in the gaming industry to deliver a rich, vibrant ecosystem at launch and post launch with many leading new titles available via the AndroidTM Marketplace. Leading franchises coming to Xperia™ PLAY includes EA's Need For Speed, Sims 3 and a world-first multiplayer version of FIFA 10 for mobile. GLU Mobile/Activision will be bringing Guitar Hero while Gameloft's titles include Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell. Sony Ericsson is also partnering with Unity Technologies, using its award-winning development platform, to ensure a continuous flow of high quality 3D game titles.

Mr Sakaguchi continued: "The launch of Xperia PLAY could not have been possible without the close collaboration of both Google and Sony Computer Entertainment. The commitment of so many industry leading game publishers further demonstrates that Xperia PLAY will deliver on the long-held expectations from consumers the world over."

XperiaTM PLAY and PlayStation Certified gaming are great examples of the kind of innovation that's possible in the open Android ecosystem," said Andy Rubin, Vice President of Engineering at Google.

A pre-loaded application will enable users to easily discover and download titles that have been optimised for game play on Xperia PLAY, access recently played games and see information about the games they have downloaded.

Sony Ericsson Xperia™ PLAY will be available globally in selected markets from March 2011
