@Fongy, it's for recording purposes, Arc and Play both have two microphones, but the video was recorded in mono, so now they at last used this second mic for better vids. As of playback, of course it did in stereo :D

it's a promising start to hear this, and that Sony are starting to push updates out more frequently - but change of video from mono to stereo? is this for recording purposes only? I assume it played video files in stereo beforehand? if not... massive fail...
can anyone confirm?
I'm hoping they get their act together and release a monstrous xperia play 2 - I'd happily swap my GS2 for that if it had the same specs...
