SE explores gaming phones

Sony Ericsson is allegedly making a move to up its devotion to the gaming industry by allowing the cameras in its phones to function as a motion-controlling sensor. Pocket-lint reports that the communications device company has signed a deal with California-based GestureTek to incorporate the software into its phones in September. Sony at present already uses the software for its EyeToy camera device on the PlayStation 2, and will allegedly function on Sony Ericsson's older phones as well.

The software would allow the Sony Ericsson's phones to operate in a similar manner to the iPhone's sudden motion sensor, which was recently shown at Apple's iPhone SDK Roadmap event. Current game plans include Crash Bandicoot and Super Monkey Ball, and could indicate a PlayStation mobile handheld.
