Just in from Sony Ericsson – from 8th June, the Sony Ericsson Xperia™ PLAY will be available with Optus and Telstra. We attended the launch party not long ago, and it seems the launch is now imminent.
Xperia™ PLAY delivers a world’s first – a powerful and cool smartphone, access to over 200,000 apps via the latest version of Google’s Android platform (Gingerbread, version 2.3) with the added bonus of a slide-out PlayStation certified game control. Xperia™ PLAY comes with six games pre-installed; Star Battalion (Gameloft), FIFA 10, Madden NFL 11 and SIMS 3 (EA Games), Bruce Lee (Digital Legends) and Crash Bandicoot (Sony Computer Entertainment).
In addition, more than 60 games will be available for download at the time of launch in Australia, including top franchises Assassin’s Creed™ – Altaïr’s Chronicles, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline, Worms, Need for Speed, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction™ and Guitar Hero.
