PlayStation Phone Benchmark – Zeus Must Do Better Than That

by Vlad Andrici on December 13, 2010


A lot of people are anxiously waiting for the Sony Ericsson PlayStation Phone. What probably makes it so attractive is the idea of bringing an authentic and engaging gaming experience, for the first time, on mobile phones. And the fact that there are a lot of unknown details, despite the numerous PlayStation Phone video and photo leaks, gives the device a mysterious aura ( and we all know mystery = interesting ).

With that being said, the latest leak will probably disappoint some of you. The guys at Engadget somehow got their hands on a video that shows the PlayStation Phone running Qualcomm’s Neocore Benchmark. How did the codenamed Zeus smartphone perform you ask? Well, unfortunately, disappointing to say the least.

Like you’ll be able to see in the video below, the PlayStation Phone scored an average of 24,4 FPS. Engadget also had the opportunity to test the Samsung Nexus S with the same benchmark, and Google and Samsung’s phone left Zeus crying in the dust ( 55.6 FPS ).

In it’s defense we must point out that the tested PlayStation Phone is still a prototype and, hopefully, still got a ways to go until the final version ( both hardware and software wise ).

Check out the PlayStation Phone Benchmark video below.

Some of the expected PlayStation Phone specs are a 3.7 inch WVGA display ( mind-blowing according to some sources ), a 1GHZ processor and a PSP-Go inspired sliding gamepad. The latest leaked video showed a PlayStation Phone prototype running on Android 2.3 but until its rumored March release date a lot of things can and will change.

Sony Ericsson is expected to officially acknowledge PlayStation Phone’s existence at Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress. Some rumors are saying that we’ll first see Zeus, officially, at Cebit 2011. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Thanks Engadget for the PlayStation Phone Benchmark video.

    This is a call to all the modding, homebrew and emulator creating community.

    PlayStation Phone + physical gaming buttons + Android SDK = the perfect Genesis, (S)NES, Gameboy, GBA emulator.

    The console classics were never meant to be played with a touch screen. The gaming control button calls are all sitting there in the Android 2.3 SDK waiting for a kind programmer to make an unsigned console emulator app :)
