The game-centered Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY has been available in the US for a while now, but only in CDMA flavor. Well, starting September 18th this will change as AT&T will be launching the Xperia PLAY 4G.
It's basically identical to its European cousin (4G stands for HSPA+ in this case), but it does come with a bonus - the Experience Pack, which Sony Ericsson demoed at E3, complete with the DK300 Multimedia Dock and a selection of 7 games.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY 4G will be available in a color exclusive to AT&T too - Stealth Blue. The pack of preinstalled games is different, here's the list:
Some of those are exclusive, but the press release didn’t say which ones. There are 150 games optimized for the Xperia PLAY, including Minecraft Pocket Edition, so you'll have plenty of choice what to play if you get the gaming-minded Xperia.
Speaking of which, starting September 18th you'd be able to snag a Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY 4G from AT&T brick and mortar and online stores for $49.99 on a two year contract. That includes the dock and preloaded games. Verizon's Xperia PLAY currently goes for $99 on a two year contract.
