Back at Mobile World Congress 2011 Sony Ericsson officially announced the Xperia Play. Dubbed the “Playstation Phone” it has been leaked time and time again and still looks to be a killer device. Especially for those Android Gamers. Come next week at Game Developers Conference 2011 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, the Xperia PLAY will most likely get some extra attention during two special GDC sessions featuring Kim Ahlstrom. He leads Sony Ericsson’s Platform Software Development team.
Kim Ahlstrom will host or be a main speaker in two session. One being the “Gaming Just Got Smarter” on Wednesday, March 2, 10:30-11:30 am (Room 309, Esplanade) at GDC, and the other will be a key speaker for the session, “Traditional Games and the New Social World” on Thursday, March 3, 1:30-2:30 pm (Room 123, North Hall). There is plenty of good things to come from GDC and Sony Ericsson and I can only imagine all these sessions will only help the cause. Like I said in a post earlier today about gaming on Android. Things are about to get exciting, interesting, and can only get better from here.
For those that are able to make it out to GDC 2011 this year be sure to stop by the Sony Ericsson booth (#608) on the exhibition floor to get a hands-on demo of the Xperia PLAY and the lineup of other Xperia™ devices. For those that can’t make it, you can watch our very own Xperia Play Hands-On.[via Sony Ericsson Blog]
