HDMI-equipped Xperia PLAY spied

HDMI-equipped Xperia PLAY spiedIt is a bit of a baffling decision to us why Sony Ericsson decided not to include a HDMI output on the Xperia PLAY, especially since the Xperia arc and Xperia Neo had HDMI support. We’ve already played some games on a TV through HDMI and it can be a lot of fun, something that would suit the Xperia PLAY perfectly.

It looks like though SE may be working on a revised version as an Xperia PLAY with HDMI was spotted. The picture below shows what looks like a HDMI cable coming out of the PLAY into the TV. The interesting thing is that where the cable comes out from there currently isn’t any kind of port. SE-Xperia was sent the photo and it seems legit to us. However, this may just be a dev kit rather than the ‘Xperia PLAY 2’, so we wouldn’t get too excited for now.

    Nope, the HDMI-equipped version is only for E3, I’ve been told.     

  • If you look at the service menu you will find a service test for HDMI on the current Xperia Play. This suggests that the device is at least capable of outputting HDMI even if the necessary connection is missing.
