Posted in Sony Ericsson by Conner Flynn on March 31st, 2011

Even before the release of Sony Ericsson’s Xperia PLAY smartphone, Sony PlayStation games are now appearing in Google’s Android Market. So you have the games now and are just waiting for the phone. Five title’s are available in the Market so far, added today. They include Syphon Filter, MediEvil and Cool Boarders 2.

The available titles are $6.38 each, with more expected to arrive over the next few weeks. Sony Ericsson’s Xperia PLAY is the first PlayStation Certified Android smartphone and of course it will be capable of playing original PlayStation games downloaded through the Android Market. That’s one of the reasons we can’t wait for the smartphone. The Xperia PLAY is expected on Verizon Wireless’ network in the U.S. this spring. Are you willing to pay $6 for games as old as these though?

Xperia Play delayed in UK

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on March 27th, 2011

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.

Xperia Play games could cost $15 or more

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on March 24th, 2011

The game lineup for Sony’s Xperia Play, also known as the PlayStation Phone, will range in price from $1.50 to upwards of $16, according to an interview with Sony Ericsson UK head of marketing David Hilton. Gamers are expecting 50 titles at launch, which include some PSOne classics and also some games that have been “repurposed for Xperia Play” from other platforms.

What do you think of these prices? They are in line with mobile gaming prices in general and the Xperia Play should allow for far more complex games if you believe David Hilton. Do you plan on buying many of these?

There will be fifty different games available to download at launch through Sony’s PlayStation suite, so you will have plenty to play with more coming.

Non-Verizon Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Android phone passes through FCC

Posted in Sony Ericsson by Conner Flynn on March 1st, 2011

The Xperia Play has been officially announced for Verizon’s network when it arrives in the US this year, but according to some reports, this might not be the case after all. That’s because an Xperia Play recently passed through the FCC, but it doesn’t have any CDMA or 4G LTE radios that would allow the phone to run on Verizon’s network.

The phone packs radios that would allow it to work on UMTS frequencies (900/2100mHz), not what Verizon uses. However there could be a simple explanation. There may be a simultaneous release of the Xperia Play on multiple networks (in which case, the Verizon version of the phone hasn’t been through the FCC yet), or Sony Ericsson has decided to release the phone on a different carrier for some reason.

Posted in Sony Ericsson by Conner Flynn on February 9th, 2011

According to Wirefly, the upcoming “PlayStation Phone” aka the Xperia Play from Sony Ericsson will be sold by Verizon when it arrives in the US.

Decisions, decisions. This one does have a slide out gamepad, Android 2.3 and the PlayStation Suite. Which one do you get?

Sony Ericsson’s Xperia play commercial

Posted in Sony Ericsson by Conner Flynn on February 3rd, 2011


A TV commercial for the Xperia Play from Sony Ericsson has surfaced online. It shows the Android mascot getting some stitched on thumbs so he can game with the PSP-style controls. It’s a bit creepy. This Playstation phone is expected to debut at Mobile World Congress later this month if you have thumbs with which to check it out.

Unofficial specs include a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, a backside touchpad and the PlayStation buttons and the ability to play PlayStation Suite games made for Android. Other specs may include a five-megapixel camera with 720p recording and a four-inch touchscreen that has technology from Sony’s Bravia HDTVs.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play (PlayStation Phone) preview

Posted in Sony Ericsson by Conner Flynn on January 26th, 2011

Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Play was given its first detailed hands-on in our part of the world today. The PlayStation phone is fairly fast and runs a 1GHz Snapdragon. Engadget found that it now hits 59FPS in Qualcomm’s NeoCore benchmark and is capable of even tying the 43FPS of the dual-core LG Optimus 2X in NenaMark.

They discovered that the PSP Go-like controls mapped directly to regular Android navigation and could even be assigned to work in an emulator. The device won’t properly play games that need secondary shoulder buttons but the dual optical pads should replicate a game that would need analog sticks.

PlayStation Phone to be called Xperia Play?

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2010

So what will the new Playstation Phone be called? Well, a trademark filling was spotted and it looks like Sony will call it the Xperia Play. Adding some credence to this, the company’s PR firm has registered various Xperia Play domain names, such as XperiaPlay.com, .net, and .org.

Sounds like a good name to us. Hopefully we will learn more very soon since CES is just around the corner. Until then just continue drooling. It won’t be long.
