Nice concept but this phone is such a failure.
1. No internal storage, max you will get is 32gb sd card, which is fail for multimedia_gaming device.
2. 380mb of ram ? Lol seriously . Its 1GB or get out.
3. And lastly how long will you play on a pathetic 1500mah battery.
The only thing it has going for it is gamepad.
Has Sony ericsson gone Mad. Or some fool is doing the marketing in India for it. 34k for this set which has no FM, no HD video recording, no good internal memory just 5M camera which is a basic congif in multimedia phones these days and poor LED light(should have been dual LED flash instead for a 34k tag)....This is a killing... Sony is sure gonna loose big market share to Samsung's Galaxy S2 and other good phones untill and unless it shows some prudent moves... I was a big fan of Sony for the past 7 years.. I had owned K750i and G900i and was waiting for Xperia Play but now i'll have to eye for other multimedia phones...What a waste!!!
2 things about this which are letting me not to buy it.
1. No HD Recording.
2. No gyro Sensors.
i wanna 2 ask if we can connect this phone with LCD screen like nokia n86????
brynn, 12 Mar 201116mm is not thick,this is highly anticipated superfone that gamers have wanted for years.Fones... moreI know. I never said 16mm is thick. What I said is that it would be thick if you add another slide-out mechanism for a keyboard. I was replying to a poster who was fantasizing about a SE phone with 2 slide out mechanism- 1 for the D-pad and 2nd one for a QUERTY keyboard. That would be one heck of a brick. It's like if you want to play, you slide out the D-pad and if you want to type, you slide out the querty keyboard; 2 sliders on ONE device.

I was just replying to the person who said SE should add a slide-out keyboard on this thing. He wants both slide-out keyboard and a slide-out d-pad all in ONE device. Now that would be thick.
citincin, 08 Mar 2011What is the Price ? or don't you realised that's the most important issue ?Sony Ericsson directly quote it as being £40 pm on all networks.
PAYG, I'd hazzard a quess at the £500 mark.

It's actually rather nice, they know what they're doing, I mean after all, it's essentially the PSPGo but with GSM abilities. Fits perfectly in the hands, are at least in my opinion.
I think I will get this phone when it comes out, but...
does anyone know the quality on the camera on the back?
How good are they on the Xperia Play?
I know the Xperia Play is 5.1 Megapixel
Would it be better than the W995 with 8.1 Megapixel?
