To all the people who think etc blah blah is better, think about it, the only competitor to this phone was the original nokia n-gage, and this abviously slaughters it.
As far as the phone side of this device goes, it does everything you want and more, no issues what so ever, battery life is fine, goes 2-3 days.
People moaning about the battery life, your obviously playing with it too much, or got your data turned on 24/7, things like that, this is not a HAND HELD GAMES CONSOLDE REMEMBER!!
It is not expected to have an insane 10+ hours gaming battery life like a psp for example,its a phone, your running a full power PLAYSTATION through a tiny battery what do you expect when playing games for hours(dont forget playstations ran off of the MAINS).
The gaming side, perfect accept its missing secondary shoulder buttons which makes some games annoying if youve downloaded roms. (the official ps1 releases for download are only games which had the need for 1 shoulder button). This phone does not lag with any ps1 game ive tested so far.
It also runs n64 nes snes sega megadrive etc, so your not just limited to ps1 games, just need to find the roms and emulators for them.
Styling imo is brilliant, nice smart looking sleak phone, not -too- bulky, but again remember, you have a ps1 inside this thing, thats why its bit thicker than most.
It is durable and touch, ive dropped it several times and not had any problems with it atall(bare in mind i still dont own a case for it), screen quality is fine, good viewing angles and when watching movies it has great quality playback.
Yes it does not have HD, but you got this phone for the games didnt you? not the camera.
Only flaw is you can not move the built in games onto the sd card so they take up a bit of your memory, but if you dont want them, go into your files and remove them to save space.
I like to buy xplay,Xplay have available in the market battery for spare?
SE should release xperia play mini with folliwing spec:
- same processing power, ram, and gpu with xplay
- 3.2 or 3.5 inch bravia mobile screen
- 3.2 mp cam with 720 video recording
- Android 2.3.4 upgradeabble to ICS
- Stereo speakers with xloud
- Slimmer and lighter than xplay
- 15000mh battery with 2gb sd card
- Cost it for $300
this play mini will increase playstation-certificate ecosystem, and then more games will follow..
Experia's Arc much better.
Low quality buttons/keys.
Playing games becomes awkward and difficult.
It's neither a good hand console, nor a good phone.
Too bad. It is a good idea, let down by stingy, second-grade quality materials.
This is what happens when you put economy in front of quality!

feedback, 06 Sep 2011xperia play user..are the games ready in this phone or own download? how many games? more than... moreLike only 6 games are already loaded. There are some free games on the market for you to download. As for the other games, you have to buy (or pirate...). Not to mention, you can run most of the classic games up to PS1 and N64 through emulators.
