...athough, the only saving grace for the xperia play for the time being is the psx emulator (there is a really good one still on google play).
at least until playstation mobile comes to the play...
Gone back to my xperia play after using some newer handsets like the galaxy note. Although I do miss having ics, the play should not be overlooked even if it wont be getting ics. This is a great phone and the playstation controls are great if you are into games.
Better still you can pick this phone up for much less.
You can still get this in phones4u for about £170 unlocked ;)

I just bought my XPlay and this is why. I can now play older games such as Crash Bandicoot or Tekken 3 with no problem of controls. I understand why is everyone upset about ICS, but there are web-sites that optimize games for XPlay. If you have Xplay Search those sites and it I hope it will serve you as a some-what consolation. Yes I also feel tricked, but the damage is done. After all you get, what you get.
Guys if you feel that you've been betrayed. Please stop complaining. I myself is sick and tired of my Arc not getting the ICS yet. We've got more than 7 major choices to choose from. Lets start of.
Bye Sony! There will be no next time.
Very Disappointed with Sony Ericsson company
The Touch Screen is very easy broken on the side of sceen
i was thinking of getting this one since it is a midrange priced phone for gaming. now, knowing that it wont get ICS. im thinking of getting htc instead...
DIRECT SPEAK, 17 Jul 2012XPERIA PLAY promises dishonoured by SONY .. seems now becoming epidemic of corporate false pro... moreMost of the Xplay buyers did so under false premises.
Sony broke their promise, lied and deceived their customers, selling a high-priced flagship as a phone with a future, guaranteeing, promising and assuring repeatedly this phone would get ICS.
Months after, it simply abandoned the phone, no ICS, no Gingerbread upgrades, not even a kernel or a GPU drivers' update.
As this shameful, despicable attitude went by without legal any punishment, other brands feel free to also betray their customers and follow sony's immoral (and illegal???) attitude.
The only way to stop this tide of lies is to boycott these deceitful companies and stop buying their products.
Sony's shameful attitude must not go unpunished.
To stop buying sony phones(or htc's, which have done the same) is easy, as there are plenty of other brands to choose from.
Just try to avoid another sony phone and tell you friends and relatives why.
Let them know what sony what they did.
How they behave after getting their customers' money.
Mouth-to-ear is also a method of education for customers worldwide.
XPERIA PLAY promises dishonoured by SONY .. seems now becoming epidemic of corporate false promises cheats and getting away making false excuses .. FALSE PROMISES false excuses EPIDEMIC --swines flu -- now affecting some windows and more android phones --different makes different networks AND NOTHING CUSTOMERS CAN DO ...
GSM ARENA is there A LEGAL VACCINE to protect customers from corporates -- SWINES FLU ??? LIES DECEPTIONS BAD SERVICES ARROGANCES ??
Since Sony Xperia Play is not getting official ICS any ICS baed ROm which is stable would add to the functionality. here's one reliable ROM from CM, CM9 RC1: http://www.androidust.com/cm9-rc1-for-xperia-active-and-xperia-play/

Very disappointed with Sony.
We were completely let down as they've stpped all support for this - not so long ago - flagship model.
Abandoning customers after failing to keep their promises deserves the ill reputation sony's getting.
This phone is everywhere on second hand cheap sales as owners are trying to keep uptaded by buying some other brand.
If sony's abandoned their promises and neglected their customers, it is definitely time for customers, as myself, to look elsewhere.
Due to my experience, I cannot recommend any Sony phone, as the brand is NOT trustworthy.
Sony? Keep away from them.
