Sony Ericsson Xperia Play review

 

Decent hardware, but in current format doesn't cut it for gaming

Looks pretty stylish ; PlayStation controls

Feels like it's going to break ; Lack of proper PlayStation titles ; Jack of all trades

Despite it being rumoured for nigh-on half a decade, the 'PlayStation Phone' actually feels like it's been rush-released, and as such its compromises mean it falls between two stools. There are better and cheaper handsets for everything other than...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play review

 

The PlayStation Phone finally lands - but can it live up to the hype?

Pleasant feel to button presses ; Attractive chassis ; Strong speakers ; Decent music player

Overpriced ; Poor game selection ; Laggy browser ; Hard to get comfortable grip ; Weighty

The PlayStation phone is the device equivalent of El Dorado, in that it's spent a long time as a golden fable to trot out when conversation slows. Now the fusion of gamepad and Android phone has emerged into the modern world in the form of the Sony...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play review

 

Sony Ericsson is looking to take mobile gaming to the next level with the Xperia Play Android smartphone. The Xperia Play features a slide-out gamepad for gamers who want more than touchscreen-only controls. Here's our review.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play will appeal to mobile gamers who are sick of poor touchscreen controls and are looking for a more fulfilling gaming experience on their phone. Currently, only a handful of games are optimised for use with the gamepad, but...
