Yes indeed, ICS upgrade is reflected on the PRICE of XPlay upon purchase. Its an option for customers as they bought it. Its a PROMISE of SE otherwise they shouldn't have mentioned that on SPECS. It is sweeping, its false advertising and mis-commitment if you dont keep that. Cellphone is more expensive than TV, is it not? Its an investment just like Sony Ericsson was an investment. However upon doing this, you just left us (the customers) a very bad impression about your company, that SE is such a nightmare in the world of mobile phones.
As an option for XPlay, it should be left to customers whether to upgrade the phone or not. As long as the upgrade is there, its our choice. Just give a warning that this might just not be a good idea.
Now, I know the idea. The phone it self was a bad idea. No wonder why you lose customers.
XperiaPlay Boy, 05 Jun 2012Hi guys. Kindly advise on downloading games (Virtual Tennis) for South Africa. Is this enterin... moreUnless its for the Android Market or anything else Google-based, I wouldn't trust it.
i have had the phone for just about a year now. the OS is very customizable compared to other androids, the sound is excelent, gamepad is a dream, best thing for this phone. very unique. Only downfall is that it came out at the same time the galaxy s2 did with a dualcore, but it only got an OC'd single core. and only 512mb ram. the handset is very resource hungry, when it finishes booting it only leaves you with 200mb ram free, and thats stock, when you add more apps (and you will) i avg around 150mb now. and when you start a game you have zero, no multitasking because of this.
keeping that in mind though, the gameplay is mind blowing much better then any other phone/tablet out there, inbuild game pad is epic, the abandonment of ICS is annoying but all in all. one great phone. if they ever release a 2nd model, i will be buying it. perfect phone. just not enough resources QQ
This phone is awesome!I love it!Worth every penny.The gamepad is damn good.Everyone said "oh 1GHz processor won't be enough for anything"...not true at all.It runs the games very well and i can play my old ps1,Snes games whenever i want.It looks cool too.
God,i love it...
I like it, it's very easy to play games.

Hi guys. Kindly advise on downloading games (Virtual Tennis) for South Africa. Is this entering of 6 credit card numbers method of buying games trusworthy? Thank you in advance.
It should be able to get android 3.0 honey comb.i mean the xperiaplay
"We can confirm that there will be no compensation offered to Sony Ericsson Xperia Play owners as a result of this cancellation, all we can do is aplogise for any inconvenience you may experienced."
This is the answer from sony after having sold the Xplay as an ICS phone.
You still happy?
then you're a mere herd of fanboys and employees ready to lie for the ones who get your money.
Strange as these trolls seem to be happy after being deceived and lied to.
You enjoy being abused?
Consumers need to fight for their rights.
The Xplay was meant to get ICS, its price reflected that.
And, in order to keep selling, sony continued reporting it would all be fixed, and their developers were working to get customers the best gaming experience.
Someone with coroporate responsibilities has lied, has deceived thousands of buyers from all over the world.
As the ones who've made their part, who've paid (and are still paying for this phone), we've got every right to demand due compensation and that justice is done.
Boycotting sony products worldwide?
That's a fair, legal action that can be taken and that - if globally accepted - will make them realise how dishonest they've been and how regretful we are.
Maybe, just maybe, they will learn the lesson.
Maybe, just maybe, we'll make a point.
If not for us, for future buyers.
Listen guys xperia play was meant for gaming and it gives me a better gamng experience than my brothers glaxy s2 and my friends iphone 4s.. seriously it is your choice either you opt a phone or for latest android updates.....i would lke to mention here the gaming of xperia play relates to PSP as the first PSP in market PSP phat and Latest PSP vta contain same ISO options ... no one complained over there ...similarly i guess xperia play is a blessing for gaming lovers....and even ICS not available hell with it ... i practised teken 6 on my xperia play all my life and won a competition at my uni... because tekken 6 and ps3 share the same tekken 6 ... what a machine i am in love with it..
SONY UK-- NO RESPONSE TO ALL THE UPSET LONGSTANDING SONY CUSTOMERS !!!! amazing response !!! end of the world ?? so upset customers are being ridiculed and abused again and again ..ridiculous !
Aifa's definitely has the point. As stated by Sony at the forum, when the ICS beta hav been released all pro reviewers hav been suggesting Ugly and Crop performance due to d hardware of Xplay..
But as a customer ofcourse, u hav d right to complain about that.. Because the Arc S,Arc,Neo,Neo V etc almost all 2011 xperia phones will recieve the update with the same hardware but why not Xplay?
Xplay is a specialized droid for Gaming. But Gaming isn't like any other features there, it needs 100% compatibility w/ the game,smoothness & atleast no lagging because gaming with lagging is a hell!
Arc and etc are just like other droid phones that doesn't require 100% smoothness regarding gaming even if they lag a bit it won't be that big deal.. Also developers are developing & selling their games because of d device's compatibility. And even if Xplay's been updated to ICS, there'll be only few games and dvelopers that make games to it because of the hardware compatibility, so d choice,you might end up downgrading to Gingerbread. But there are many alternatives to solve this.. 1st, Sony make the ICS update optional; if d users like it, be on it. 2nd, Release their ICS-skinned Android 2.3.7 update like on the Xperia S with some improvements..
Protest here guyz ...
although i am not a Play user .. but i knw it feels bad when coustomers are cheated ...
We need stronger consumer protection laws WORDWIDE!
The greatest paradox:
Although consumers pay for and support the consumer society and all these large multinatinal comapnies, they keep being the weakest link of this capitalist chain.
Will we keep on allowing that?
Will we keep on giving our money to those who lie and deceive us?
Will we keep on accepting being seen as a mindless herd?
AnonD-9845, 01 Jun 2012u guys should be thankful that Sony decided not to upgrade play.
gaming experience would de... moreFact:
Sony have failed to deliver what had been repeatedly advertised.
ICS upgrade was seen by Sony as a strong selling point.
That is why they always announced the peria lineup would get ICS.
That was a clever marketing campaign: advertising today's phones as fully upgradable and compatible with the next OS.
Did that work?
Apparently, it did.
Was that true?
What did Sony do when the time fot upgrading arrive?
They simply went back on the given word with a lame excuse and no compensation/alternative plan whatsoever.
Are customers supposed to "forgive and forget" the repeated lying and deceival?
Let's hope they're not just conformist sheep.
No use sony's fanboys and servants keep intoxicating forums and discussion boards everywhere.
The truth is plain to see.
sony break my heart..juz hope some upgrade for camera n face unlock only...huhu...
hope have another update forr this.. not getting ics so i can root my play..
u guys should be thankful that Sony decided not to upgrade play.
gaming experience would definitely suck on this poor chipset.if they gave the play an ICS upgrade, most of u will surely complain why gaming suddenly became crap.
if they made play with dual core cpu and better gpu, then definitely play should get ics, but they know with this hardware now, ICS + bad chipset = crappy gaming
