Sam, 03 Oct 2012that's right.
sony has abandoned the play and its users. no profit, no support. that is their... moreI couldn't agree more.
We -as consumers - really have to put an end to this and stop acting like gullible robots that will go after anything with the label "NEW" on it...
We have to stop letting large corporations take advantage of us, customers.

I agree with both of you.
Profit over client service/satisfaction.
Consumerism and shopping addiction.
Always strive for the new(est).
That is why lazy/liar sony got away with not abiding the law and breaking their written promise of developing and releasing ICS to this phone.
That is how these companies survive and prosper, albeit the very, very poor customer support.
On top of it, consumer laws are often poetically well intended, but effectively useless "at the altar" the power of these multinational octopus-like money-making companies.
Despite all, resistance and active indignation are NOT useless.

Anonymous, 02 Oct 2012Why no latest update ?that's right.
sony has abandoned the play and its users. no profit, no support. that is their motto.
they don't care if you're still under contract paying for a phone slashed of its future compability and potential.
the very least they could do was updating kernel and adreno gpu drivers, which are ready for months.
they simply don't care about the phone anymore. let's face it. it's got nothing to do with the gamepad.
if sony wanted to,we would all be playing with our gamepads on ICS for a loing time!
i guess that's the capitalist school of thought for you.
you may submit to it, you may think there's nothing you can do to change it.
just have some integrity and don't defend it!
i do have one...but still under gingerbread...no updates..c'mon sony....
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2012Why no latest update ?xperia play 2011 sony flagship quietly dropped from ics update by sony on 24may 2012 after 12 months of "planned" update -socalled by sony . xplay struggles even with basic apps downloading and functions with gross inernal memory ram of 512mb -- which registers "NOT SUFFICENT" MEMORY .. TRUTH IS BITTER ..SONY ABANDONED ITS OWN 2011 FLAGSHIP XPLAY and dumped loyal longstanding sony customers ..shame ..
