According to the official O2 blog, things may not be running as smoothly as we thought for the Xperia Play. For one, it will miss it’s April 1st launch. This is due to having to work out some bugs and make it all stable so that we get a good phone, not a junk one.
They hope to have it all sorted as quickly as possible as they are “really excited about the Xperia PLAY” and will even be selling an exclusive white version. Maybe this is just them setting up an April fools prank, and on the 1st they will magically have it. We just don’t know.
