A Sony Ericsson petition to create a PlayStation-branded phone was shot down by Sony Corp late last year, MobileToday’s rumouring.

The forever-speculated PlayStation phone was a logical progression after the success of Cyber-shot and Walkman handsets, says the site, but Sony was apparently having none of it: the December decision has supposedly prompted a “fallout” between the two firms.

The story goes on to guess that the move may bring an end to Sony relationship with Ericsson. Maybe not.

Take a look.
