I hope sony make a version of this that looks like n97. I like the its design. It has d-pad on the right and qwerty keyboard.
ATRIUM, 23 May 2012xperia play have playstation store?no. you have plenty of emulators and the phone connects and shoes you all games that are specificaly desiigned to work with the Xplay.
you have plenty of game that work w. the gamepad and all other function normally, through the touch screen.
if you want to play psx games, you'll need to look for compatible/adapted gams and emulators as the Xplay is not meant/designed to play psx games. the only one you've got on the phone is an adapted version of crash bandicoot.

AnonD-41267, 21 May 2012How to update XPLAY to ICS without having to root my phone? We'll just have to wait until... June?
Sony has delayed ICS, so only a few Xperia model have got it.
Keep your fingers crossed, though.
The word is that ICS make the phone 'laggy', slower and there ain't no fm radio or 3g video calling...
I guess that is why sammmy phones are selling like hot cakes.
Xplay is a very great phone... actually its underrated during its debut. its a great smart phone but if you'll compare it to the latest phone announced of course it won't satisfy your expectations. its a great smart phone with game console...
the negative side of this is its weight.
but of course i'll wait for the sony xperia play2! :))
Cant believe people are moanin about 3g video calls, if you want them so bad get an app, your all just bone idle, the weight and low memory is the only downside to the play overall a freakin awesome phone I wouldnt upgrade because you get these phones with all the power and no where to use it so really dont see the point
Xperia play rubbish , 17 May 2012Give 5 out of ten for play controls. the size and weight is so awful it pulls your trousers do... moreThis phone is no more, or no less (as you prefer) than announced.
If you want a light, slim phone, you must be really dumb if you buy an Xplay!
If you want a true gamepad, then you'll have to sacrifice and read the phone's specifications.
It's not the world's best phone, it should have a larger internal memory, it almost literally forces you to root in order to get some games and apps into the sd card... well, it's far from being flawless...
But, at the end of the day, it's the only phone that allows you to hang up your calls, turn off your gps and slide your pad to start playing without having your fingers all over the screen, providing you a true "console-like" gaming experience.
That's the ghole point of buying an XPlay in a market filled with a multitude of different brands and models to choose from.
Simply love the fact that others envy the fact that their big thumbs cover the screen when playing. Wish they'll have XPlay 2 with Super AMOLED screen, better GPU and better CPU.
Give 5 out of ten for play controls. the size and weight is so awful it pulls your trousers down got rid and got Xperia arc s much better phone overall I'd give 4 out of ten don't recommend
Sssdxs, 14 May 2012Can you put games in this phone??????????.......NO you cant.. the control pad is just a design. you use the playstation buttons so you can full your friends that your phone is a PSP
hey guys, i have had the xperia play for about 3 months now and i love it, the graphics are great the games are great. its a great phone regardless of wether your going to use the psp controls, 9/10 only downside is that it is a tad heavier than most phones and a bit chunky
is this a good choice when it comes to games ? im planning to get one
