Yes, this rumour’s been around for a while, but Sony Computer Entertainment exec Jim Ryan (pictured) just reignited it by saying “The PlayStation is a proven success and so is Sony Ericsson. Convergence with the two arms working together is definitely plausible.”

It’s unclear whether he’s thinking of putting a mobile phone module into the next PSP, or a PlayStation chip into a Sony Ericsson mobile phone however.
