Sony confirms: no Ice Cream Sandwich for the Xperia PLAY

Android gamers, I've got some bad news for you: that issue earlier this week that saw the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY removed from Sony's Ice Cream Sandwich update list has been confirmed. In a press statement today, Sony said that they were opting not to release a final Ice Cream Sandwich ROM, on the basis that a stable experience for both phone functions and gaming cannot be achieved on the older hardware.

Report: Sega’s Super Monkey Ball 2 headed to Xperia Play

As soon as Sega started supporting Android, I had a singular, clear thought in my head: we need Super Monkey Ball. The simian franchise has been absent from Android for far too long, and the prospect of robotic monkeys notwithstanding, I don't exaggerate when I say that it's perfect for the smartphone/tablet form factor. According to Xperia Gamer, the Sony VIP portal has stated that Super Monkey Ball 2 will be headed to the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play soon. Huzzah!

Reckless Racing 2 coming to Xperia Play on February 2nd

If you haven't had enough of Polarbit's slipping, sliding classic Reckless Racing, prepare for another installment in just a couple of weeks. The developer has confirmed that Reckless Racing 2 will be making its way to the Android Market on February 2nd, but for the foreseeable future, only Sony Ericsson Xperia Play owners can join in the fun. The sequel will include new cars and tracks, plus enhanced visuals and character customization.

OnLive update plays nice with Xperia Play game pad

Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play seems tailor made for online streaming service OnLive: it's small, portable, with a wide screen and - most importantly - a built-in PlayStation-style game pad. These facts may have perturbed owners who tried out OnLive's new Android app, since it defaulted to its touchscreen interface even on the specialized hardware. That minor oversight has been fixed, as PocketGamer reports that the Android app has been updated to support the buttons on the Xperia Play's slide-out keyboard.

Sony Xperia PLAY 4G LTE in the works

The Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY wasn't nearly as popular as many thought it would be, but now there are a few rumors and details going around showing we might be seeing a newer, faster 4G LTE version hit the streets from Verizon. The original wasn't the famed device we expected and had pretty mediocre specs to go with those mediocre sales.

Sony’s Xperia Play has more than 200 optimized games

When Sony Ericsson launched the Xperia Play last year, one of the primary concerns was a dearth of games to take advantage of its PlayStation-style slide-out gamepad. Those concerns appear to have been unfounded: AndroidGuys reports that the company confirmed the availability of more than 200 Xperia Play-optimized Android games. That doesn't hold a candle to the wide array of games availabe on the Android Market, or for that matter, any major gaming console you'd care to mention, but it's an impressive feat none the less.

Xperia Play heads to C-Spire, regional carrier ready for gaming

Regional carrier C-Spire apparently wants in on the gaming action here in Android and today have announced the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play will be available to C-Spire customers for just $49.99 starting today. Better late than never right? The phone is the same model already available from Verizon, that is also $49 from AT&T so this isn't anything new -- Just a good deal for those C-Spire users.

Sony Ericsson brand to be phased out in mid-2012; Sony goes all Android

With Sony purchasing what's left of Sony Ericsson back in October, keen observers knew that Ericsson's days as an official brand partner were numbered. According to an interview with the Times of India, that transition will be happening sooner rather than later, with Sony Ericsson-branded phones being transitioned out by the middle of 2012. The phones that are produced post-integration will simply feature the "Sony" label.

DroidMote lets XPERIA Play owners control Android tablet games

There are a lot of exciting developments in the Android gaming world, but at the end of the day, touchsceen controls are still a limiting factor for complex games. Owners of Sony's XPERIA Play have a built-in solution, but what if you want to play your games with glorious button-mashing accuracy on a screen more than a few inches wide? If you find yourself in this conundrum, and you've got an enviable amount of Android hardware lying around, you might want to invest in DroidMote, an app that allows the XPERIA Play to remotely control games on any Android tablet.
