It neeeds to be significantly well priced if it wants to be a hit. Experimenting with gaming cannot be compared to listening music. this phone will attract very few people as there are very few gamers in the world in comparison to music listeners. so SE must not think that it will be as big a hit as walkman...
Why is people comparing this phone to other phones. This xperia play is a gaming phone, made to play ps1,psp and older generation games to the fullest, hence the buttons! Nokia n900 is a different realm, galaxy tab is kinda big for pockets, and iphone is an iphone. If someone has the xperia play and another has a nokia n900 or an iphone and play play say snes super street fighter 2 or platform games like mario with similar skill levels, I'm sure more than 100% the guy with the se xperia play will win. Again with this phone you don't need to carry extra controllers because its their already.
Good try Sony. After Walkman success, now PSP phone will conquer the new generation. Other brand only do not have idea to make impact! Even this phone is full of weakness, but I think it's good try by Sony. Congrats
I think this phone will be left behind by ATRIX and even OPTIMUS 2X. Why? Compare the specs of this to the earlier mentioned phones, furthermore the games capable of running with tegra 2 phones perhaps can't render smooth movements when played on XPERIA PLAY. To be specific imagine putting the game GALAXY OF FIRE 2 in XPERIA PLAY. Why? Take a closer look at the specs again with tegra 2 capable phone.
My point here is that SE didn't maximize the the potential of Xperia PLAY. This phone is absolutely left behind when it comes to gaming vs the TEGRA 2 phones. Just like in a desktop computer, if you want to have a better gaming experience in your PC then installing the best hardware specs will be the right choice or else gaming experience will not be pleasant.
That idea is same with a gaming PHONE, BETTER HARDWARE SPECS the BETTER GAMING EXPERIENCE you'll get. And XPERIA PLAY failed to have that.
What's different with PLAY from other android phones is the playstation controls and thats all.
how much???? and the size is bigger than xperia 10 or smaller, i wait a long time for a phone like this
thank you sonyericsson
Love this phone, it is my dream come true seeing this, good looking phone, gonna get 1, so drop sooner, b4 i finish my money.....
I just want to know why SE idiots didn't used Tegra2 or PowerVR SGX440(445)
This is the only reason this phone will fall dawn,
It's great phone... Can't wait to officially release in Indonesia.... Surely breakthrough from SE likes it design..!!
new breakthru' by SE... i wanna buy it if the price is right... can't wait for release officially..
this phone is no use
you can use symbian android and apple app to use your cell as router as i said with psp
no bluetooth 3
no usb on the go
no tv out
no fm transmitter
no hd videos
not a vary good camera
this is earth not planet dumpster .
Plus sony ericsson are not solid as the competitors
compared to a nokia n900 or nokia e7 nokia n8 and samsung galaxy tab . If a smartphone dose not comply
with good standards.
I got vga tv out cable and a hdmi conector
so evidently nokia make solid phones
so if there is less features all thease other crapy android device are useless
I like sony xperia play.but I want same configration,same look and qwerty keypad with navigation key
damn damn damn damn... this is the phone that i've been waiting for ages!! Woohooo!!
