Is this the Xperia Play 2? Mobile gaming with a dual core CPU and HD display

A few months ago we talked about Verizon getting an LTE version of the Xperia Play, well this go around points to a whole new device that might fit those shoes. With over 200 games optimized for play on the original device from Sony, they’ve proven their loyalty to the gaming crowd. Games like Madden ’12 and EA Sports FIFA ’12 are among the leading titles optimized for the original model.

Looking quite a bit different than the original model, this mockup seems to abandon the original curves. On the rumor spec list is a 1.5ghz dual-core SnapDragon S4 CPU with a 4.3″ Hi-Def display. Of course it will be Playstation certified as well.

We’re a little concerned by the capacitive buttons, as they may be indicative of Gingerbread running on the device. However, if you had the original model this should be a major step-up. Improvements like a dual core processor should make a world of difference in the gaming experience.
