If you’re into PC gaming, you must have played Minecraft. The game involves placing blocks to build just about anything. It is scheduled to hit Android in the near future. However, if you own a Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play, you can play the game on your smartphone.
You can now download the game for £4.26. This is quite expensive for an app, since popular games such as Angry Birds can be downloaded for a much cheaper price. However, with almost 12 million registered users and more than 3 million who have actually purchased the game, there might be a lot of XPERIA Play users who might just get the building game.
We were all excited when the PlayStation-certified smartphone was announced, but when it did come out, the game selection was rather disappointing. Since this highly popular game can now be exclusively played on the XPERIA Play, this might boost the sales of the smartphone.
If you don’t own the PlayStation-certified smartphone, there is no need to worry. Reportedly, the game will be launched for other Android devices as well as the iPhone soon.
Is the £4.26 too much for the game, or are you a fan that just doesn’t care about the hefty price tag? Let us know what you think.
You may have wanted to get the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play, but it may have been too expensive for you. Thankfully, the prices have significantly dropped, which will now allow you to get the only PlayStation-certified smartphone in the market.
Amazon is selling the gaming handset online for £332, which includes a 16 GB microSD card. Expansys has priced it at £289 SIM free. Carphone Warehouse is now selling the phone for £299. With these prices, will you still get one from O2 for £519?
Why the big price drop? Paying less than £300 for a Gingerbread-powered handset that comes with console-like controls, a 4 inch touch screen, a 1 GHz single-core processor seems too good to be true. It’s either the retailers have a lot in stock, or they are getting ready for another smartphone to launch.
When the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play was officially announced, everyone wanted one. Unfortunately, when it went out, it turned out to be disappointing. True, it came with its own dedicated console controls, but there were only 30 games available to the smartphone. It did not give users access to the PlayStation Suite. Now is a different story. There are now more games to choose from specifically designed for the Play.
Now that the prices have dropped and there is a wider selection of games, will you get one? Let us know what you think.
The Gingerbread powered PlayStation-certified Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play currently does not support an HDMI connection, but from recent images on engadget, the handset was connect to an HDTV for large-screen gaming.
One of the features Sony Ericsson neglected to add on this impressive piece of technology is an HDMI connector. It is unclear why the phone manufacturer chose not to add the feature. It actually makes more sense to add it since it is the only PlayStation-certified smartphone. How else are users going to enjoy more from hardcore gaming without the feature? The SE XPERIA Arc comes with an HDMI connector; why not the Play?
The Play comes with a 4.0 inch touch screen, which is considered large compared to other conventional touch screens. However, it cannot be considered a tool for intense gaming, regardless of the console-like controls. The screen is just too small for users to enjoy more from PlayStation games.
When the images from engadget came out, it was initially thought that the current version of the handset now comes with an option to connect to HDTVs. However, the images displayed a connection on the left side of the smartphone. They quickly noticed that there’s nothing there but chrome. Furthermore, there were no other connections on the exposed motherboard of the smartphone.
This led the website to believe that the handset featured in the images were SE Plays with additional ports specifically released for developers. However, when developers were asked about the specialized handset, they were unaware of it being in existence.
It could be possible that Sony Ericsson is about to release another version of the XPERIA Play that comes with an HDMI port. This might mean that Sony has realized the lack of foresight made and will soon launch an HDMI version, or this could all be hoax. We’ll report more once we get more info.
