The Xperia Play is one of the few devices that keeps getting better the longer you have it, and there is one simple reason for this - GAMES! With the launch of Fifa 12 today on the device, it keeps going from strength to strength. For those that do not know, FIFA12 is now available totally free on the Play, via EAs Xperia download pages, accessible easily from the device. At a whopping 1.5GB download, ensure you have plenty storage (and plenty usage on your broadband left) and, obviously, WiFi is required. However the game is simply stunning, smooth, sleek and awesome graphics, it really is a must for all Xperia Play owners, if only to demonstrate its ability to render high quality games. The launch of FIFA12 adds to a large library of games, with many (more than you would expect) full titles available free of charge. These include Dead Space, Asphalt 6, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Need for Speed Shift HD and NFS Hot Pursuit. Also, with many other games on the Android MArketplace "optimised for Xperia Play", there is a never ending supply of free games available. At the price that the Xperia Play is currently available, anybody looking for an XMas gift for somebody into gaming on their mobile, or just for atreat for themself, would be hard pressed to find a better piece of kit. And with the upgrade to Android Ice Cream sandwich being confirmed by Sony Ericsson, it is a pretty good phone too!
l have been looking for the place where l can buy this sonyericsson play but no where to buy it here in Nigeria and l need it so badly. Please, can someone tell me where l can buy it in Nigeria. Thanks so much!
I picked one of these up as for £150 seemed like a deal that was too good to be true.
The phone is phenomenal... After using it for about 2 weeks not I can say without a doubt it is the best phone i have ever used. I went from the HTC Desire to this and if i would have known it was this good i most likly would have bought it at £400 last year.
The graphics are out of this world for a phone. Crash bandicote brings back so much childhood win.
I can't recommend this phone enough.
the price has dropped dramatically, i work for carphone warehouse, this phone used to be €459.99 and now were selling them at €159.99
they are flying of the shelves, i get around 5 people a day asking for them
not sure how long this low price will last, but its certainly worth it... now justhave to hope that the Neo V comes down in price so i can get that for myself :D
I saw a post on here the other day about phones4u selling them at £150 so
I saw a post on here the other day about phones4u selling them at £150 so i took my mini pro back that i bought from o2 for £140 a week b4 got a refund and got the last xperia play in leeds and it was £130 :) and to top it off o2 did not check the box so i kept the decent headphones and also the £20 xmas voucher haha bonus, so whoever posted about phones4u selling this phone cheap... THANKS!!!
I am lucky to own both of the white and black plays and i for one love the phone as it does everything i need plus as an avid gamer this phone is 2nd to none for gaming having the full gaming controls makes a hell of a difference
Also with the ice cream sandwich update being confirmed for the play its only going to make the phone even better than its already also you able to download fifa 12 free from the 1st of december so if you want a good all round phone and you loving gaming this is the phone for you
Also the phone is on offer at the moment in a number of places so grab a bargain while you can as its an excellent xmas gift for anyone

Could you check something for me if you dont mind.
If you key in *#*#7378423#*#* in the phone dialer.
Then go to 'service info, then 'configuration' then at the bottom, what does it say under 'rooting status' please ?
nacho b, 23 Nov 2011I love the idea of the playstation mode, but seriusly, where would you play with?Only in cases... moreI understand fully what your on about..I am in full agrreement to get back to qwerty because when you use onscreen you loose real screen estate so emails go offscreen if they are long or go behind the onscreen qwerty..I hate this full touchscreen fad and welcome some efforts by company to keep real buttons smartfones either T9,full qwerty etc ..
The trouble is these button smartfones are low quality really and not top spec..The BB 9900,Nokia E6 and HTC desire Z all have poor cameras and video recording.
update to 2.3.4 now... dont know what will happen. some says it 'eat' the battery.. nvm..lets see..
