The homescreen and menu doesn't seem to work in landscape mode on my phone otherwise all other features are working properly. Has anyone else experienced the same? Any solution?

Hi Guys,

updated my Xperia Play in Poland (Orange provider) few days ago, works great !!!

The screen works in the landscape mode only then the game pad is open (from game manu just hit the home button and that's it), not sure why does not switch automatically when the phone is turned (maybe next update).

Also some functions (buttons) have been changed, all looks better I think.

Flipping the screen to landscape works only if the phone's game pad is opened, from the game menu just push the home button and You have it.
DOES not work with just turning the phone around, not sure why.
