Does it play PSP games ??
I do not think that this phone is going to have a bright future, hardware seems to be outdated for a "console" phone. It is going to be interesting to see how PSP phone struggles to keep up with Nvidia Tegra monster.
BTW I am not trying to start the discussion about avaibility of good games etc. I think that they should use the newest available technology, that is all.

buliding a gaming phone with little game app storage space.....315mb sony ericsson you have failed!!!! WTF its an incredible mistake one which cripple the phone,that and the 2010 specs in it. Lots of big games can range in at 15mb even after using app2sd and putting 300mb of data in the memory card folder. Some games don't use app2sd and can have larger internal phone memory usage......in 2011 this is unforgiveable and Sony has indeed not learned anything
[deleted post]Yeah alright

[deleted post]first we are talking about a SE phone here and you are posting something no way related to the post and there is no point of doing the death grip on an iphone with the bumper on .we comment here to say what we think about a post not to brag about something
it is the first xperia play phone second will be released in q3
and you should know that this pre released version of the phone has better bechmark comapare to galaxy s and xperia arc!
and we can play psp games and some great android games that Sony partners will make for this monster!
i'm sure that this will make money!

Come on we know it's an android based gaming smartphone. Don't get me wrong i'm not disrespecting sony here. I have both sony ps3 and psp go. Which i think amazing gaming device. My guess is a smartphone plus gaming device don't suit well. And not to mention the android plaform which has issue over battery performance. It won't even stay for 24 hours. Big game developers and publishers are not stupid. They knows the android platform vey well. Even sony's psp 2000 or 3000 didn't make too much impact against nintendo's DS or DSI/DSI XL. Now we know sony's on announcing new psp2. I'm waiting for it but if it's good what sony said to be or i will buy nintendo 3DS. All good game came from nintendo's handheld device.
Anonymous, 18 Jan 2011id dread to know how much they would sell this in South Africa!! cos when phones come over her... moreI must say I totally agree with you... the phone prices in SA is INSANE most times...

Anonymous, 17 Jan 2011Dont know, im guessing the 500 euro mark, but its anyones guess really. Dread to think how muc... moreid dread to know how much they would sell this in South Africa!! cos when phones come over here we gt it almst double the price sometimes! i just hope this phone is an exception i want it bad!
If sony supports this model with good gaming titles (ie over n above regular android games), i dont find any reason why this phone wont turn out to be the biggest hit of the year n more. ...
N its a totally differently story that nokia n sammy fanboys will keep cursing this one....as they keep blabbing about iphone.
Im sure this phone will dead and SE will fail again and again !
ugly design by sony, this one sux, itz just a normal gaming mobile not playstation mobile & using android as os for playstation games eww, come on sony make something revolutionary gaming mobile
Stoogie, 18 Jan 2011Why would they use a adreno 205 when the PowerVR SGX 540 is still faster??PowerVR is used on Hummingbird processors, whereas Adreno comes with Snapdragon processors.
Anonymous, 18 Jan 2011wait for psp 2 it wiil have the half price and it will 2 times betterpsp 2 ? is der a psp 2 :)?
gaming devices and phones should be kept separate. It will never be a good phone or a good gaming device, it'll be in the middle spec wise =[ im still going to buy this phone though. cmon psp2
Anonymous, 17 Jan 2011315mb for apps in 2011 on a dedicated games app phone......instant fail. Ridiculous and stupid... moreI wish I can like your comment :) Sony should bundle 2GB internal memory. That should be enough.
Yup, i think battery drain would be one of the biggest issue here.
really superb phone.but need more battery backup.
What would be the price?
