Playstation Phone Released

On Friday, April 1 the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, which is also known as the Playstation Phone, launched in several different countries in Europe and Asia. There are also plans to launch the phone in six additional countries within the next two weeks.

The Xperia is an Android-based device and is currently on sale in the UK, Germany, Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Russia, Hong Kong and Taiwan. In the next week or so it will also be available in Spain, France, Finland, Singapore, India and Portugal. The Xperia Play will unfortunately not be available in the United States until sometime later this spring. It will be launched on Verizon Wireless’ network.

According to the Inquirer, there were reports that some “freight issues” might delay the launch of the device in the UK. The paper stated that Orange and Carphone Warehouse will have the device available, but Vodafone has delayed the launch of the Xperia Play and O2 says they are still testing the device. The Inquirer stated that they will be on sale in the U.K., SIM-free for £479.99.

With the launch of the Play comes 60 different games from providers including Sony Computer Entertainment, Gameloft, Electronic Arts and Glu Mobile. There will be several free games that will come pre-installed on the device that will include "Asphalt 6" and the PS One classic "Crash Bandicoot." There will be five PlayStation original games that will be available at the launch including "Cool Boarders 2," "Destruction Derby," "Jumping Jack Flash," "MediEvil" and "Syphon Filter," and in France "Syphon Filter" will come pre-installed. There will also be other titles available including "Assassins Creed Altair's Chronicles HD," "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell," "Need for Speed," "Galaxy on Fire 2," and more. All games will be available to download via the Xperia Play launcher, which is an app that can be activated by merely sliding open the game pad.

Not only is the Xperia Play great for gaming but it also features a 4-inch screen, a 5-megapixel camera, 1-GHz CPU, 8GB of space (that can be expanded to 32GB), and it will be powered by Snapdragon and run on Google Gingerbread. As Bert Nordberg, the president of Sony Ericsson, said, it is the "first mobile device to deliver an immersive gaming experience."
