Good times are just around the corner for Verizon customer game-enthusiasts as the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is scheduled to be available (on pre-order) May 19, officially releasing May 26 (both online and in-store). The device will cost a modest $200 (with a two-year contract).
The phone will include several (admittedly awesome) games, as explained in a Sony Ericsson press release:
“Powered by Android 2.3, Gingerbread, the Sony Ericsson Xperia™ PLAY will come pre-loaded in the US with seven game titles including, Madden NFL 11 (EA Sports), Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior (Digital Legends), Asphalt 6: Adrenaline (Gameloft), The Sims 3 (EA), Star Battalion (Gameloft), Crash Bandicoot (Sony PlayStation) and Tetris. Customers can expand their video game library with more than 50 game titles available at launch for download via V CAST Apps. Customers easily become gamers with the slide out game pad revealing a directional keypad, dual analog touch joystick, two shoulder buttons and the four iconic PlayStation® symbol keys: circle, X, square and triangle.”
The Xperia packs Android’s 2.3 Gingerbread OS, a slide-out gamepad (with D-pad and two touch “joysticks”), 4 inch LCD and 5 MP camera. It’s strong internals make it a great device for both productive phone use and powerful gaming.
In order to use the phone with Verizon customers will have to pay for both a Nationwide Talk plan and a separate data plan (roughly $30/month).
