Havok Physics displayed on Sony Ericsson Xperia Play

Xperia Play is getting an exciting partnership in the form of the shake of hands with Havok and their Physics engine. Below is a video that shows off the engine running on a Sony Ericsson Xperia Play.

The video shows off what seems to be 30fps footage, with destruction that is actually quite impressive for a mobile phone. The physics seem natural for the small unit, and I'm guessing this is just the beginning of physics on a mobile device. It looks like we'll soon be tapping the power of current, oldish consoles in our mobile handsets sooner rather than later!
