Sony closes PS Phone lies

What a phony old world.

A Sony representative has told that reports of a PlayStation Phone are wide of the mark.

This comes after a story in the Economic Times of India which claimed that Sony Computer Entertainment might be working with Sony Ericsson on the project - following the launch of a Bravia-branded handset.

SCE's co-chief operating officer, Jim Ryan, had apparently told the publication: "The PlayStation is a proven success and so is Sony Ericsson. Convergence with the two arms working together is definitely plausible."

But now a company spokesperson has denied the two brands are colluding.

"Jim Ryan was in fact misquoted by the Economic Times of India about this issue. We are not currently working together on the creation of a PlayStation Phone."

There was no indication given as to whether such a collaboration was planned at any point in the future.

Unearth fiction and will pummel it with a shovel of fact.
