Excellent Device

I bought this device in November and have to say that its amazing.

The best part is the game console which is PlayStation certified.
It comes with Fifa12, Asphalt6, NFS and many more.

Even the phone works well as per Android standards.

Upgrade to Android 4.0 is expected soon.

Personal experience on play

i am having this phone and My experience with it has a mixture of feeling .

plus points - it is a first play station approved cell phone great gaming graphics , good looks , good 4 inch screen with great touch and the slider will never let you feel away from the psp.

Negative points- its very bulky and the lower android version and the lower internal memory will make you frustrated some time.

Awesome Phone :D

I bought this phone 2 weeks ago.... Recieved within 2 days after placing order.
Manufacturing date on box I recieved is March 2011. This must have been the first batch of phones released in market.

The phone is awesome.... am in love with it...
The only problem am facing with this phone is battery life. Battery discharges in less than a day. So, need to charge it everyday or carry charger always.

Lets sum it up !

Now that the price is down to 22k, this phone is a steal. I have been using it for 2 months now and i have to say that its an absolute beauty! No lag while gaming or anything, what so ever. Dont be shocked by the only 1ghz processor because its more than sufficient for this phone.
The camera is beautiful as well. The screen is pretty good and delivers excellent quality. Great battery life. And the slide out game pad! well its the greatest time killer. You would love it if you are into gaming...

Price is Justified :)

This is The only gaming centered Android phone, The slide out Controls are very cool :). Before this product was not rated good review because of its cost now the price is totally right. This is the phone for Android Gamers, Now is the right time to buy it.

Good Move by Sony Ericsson, this price cut will surely boost the sales. Please buy the Xperia Play to support Sony Ericsson, If we support them they will make XPERIA PLAY 2. BUY NOW ! :D

why did it get so cheap?

This was the most expensive phone in the Xperia range at 29k
What's with such a steep price drop?

Can anyone explain?

The phone has a really slow startup. Also there are very very few games on the market meant exclusively for the ps phone.

The gaming experience is crisp. You'll love it if you've ever jammed psp for like twelve hours in a row!
