Update: We're still getting over the fact that Sony Ericsson just aired a slightly longer version of this ad in front of the millions of people watching the Super Bowl - check it out:


Sony Ericsson's upcoming "PlayStation phone," the Xperia Play, has been leaking left and right pretty much since its inception, and therefore it's no surprise that its first official commercial was also reveals via a leak.

Droidnytt.no, a Norwegian Android fan site, published the following video showing our little green friend getting thumbs attached to his hands for easier game controller handling, all in the creepiest way imaginable. I wonder if SE borrowed the same team who was behind the original Sony PS3 ad (for the record, I think both are awesome).

Alright, no more spoilers - just watch:

    This thing looks pretty sick. I never read about any of the leaks so this is my first time hearing about it.

    Creepy yes but this is the only phone I'm hype about, I would like this on cdma sprint and GSM but you know what as long as this thing don't end up as a big V only phone I would be happy.
    But I will say this I don't give a damn who gets it I'm buying that F@#&*r and throwing this damn hero out the window.
