Xperia™ PLAY will run on Gingerbread (version 2.3), the latest version of Google’s Android™ platform. The Xperia™ PLAY will also be the first PlayStation Certified device. This means it will have access to PlayStation® game content provided through the PlayStation® Suite initiative, currently under development by Sony Computer Entertainment and due to launch later this calendar year.

Kazuo Hirai, President of Networked Products and Services Group at Sony Corporation said: “I am delighted to see Xperia™ PLAY as the first PlayStation Certified smartphone to hit the market. Xperia™ PLAY provides a unique consumer offering and is yet another example of great products and services coming to market that leverage Sony’s strong assets.”

Sony Ericsson has partnered with key publishers in the gaming industry to deliver a rich, vibrant ecosysti at launch and post launch with many leading new titles available via the Android™ Marketplace. Leading franchises coming to Xperia™ PLAY includes EA’s The Sims 3 and FIFA 10 for mobile. GLU Mobile/Activision will be bringing Guitar Hero while Gameloft’s titles include Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell. Sony Ericsson is also partnering with Unity Technologies, using its award-winning development platform, to ensure a continuous flow of high quality 3D game titles.

Mr Sakaguchi continued: “The launch of Xperia™ PLAY could not have been possible without the close collaboration of both Google and Sony Computer Entertainment. The commitment of so many industry leading game publishers further dionstrates that Xperia™ PLAY will deliver on the long-held expectations from consumers the world over.”

Xperia™ PLAY and PlayStation Certified gaming are great examples of the kind of innovation that’s possible in the open Android ecosysti,” said Andy Rubin, Vice President of Engineering at Google.

A pre-loaded application will enable users to easily discover and download titles that have been optimised for game play on Xperia™ PLAY, access recently played games and see information about the games they have downloaded.
