Engadget has exclusive video of the Playstation Phone, now being called the ‘Zeus Z1,’ in action. Specifically, the video shows the phone running Qualcomm’s Neocore benchmark app. The phone was only able to push 24.4fps, while a similar test run on the new Nexus S did closer to 55.6fps. 24fps is probably not going to cut it on a device made mostly for gaming, but we have to remember that this is still the prototype stage. The hardware and software could be changed at any time.
Still, some are wondering if we’re just making too much of the Playstation Phone. The PSP Go wasn’t wildly successful and this new device seems to amount to the same except with phone capabilities. In any case, the fact that the rumors keep getting so much attention says that consumers are interested. Let’s just hope Sony can deliver.
