Sony Ericsson Announces Qriocity Video Service for Xperia Devices

Today the good folks at Sony Ericsson have let the world know that a brand new video service for Xperia phones will be launching starting on August 1st, 2011. This service will allow users to either buy or rent movies and television shows, this service complimenting the mobile brand's recently announced cloud based digital music service "Music Unlimited." The video service Qriocity will initially be pushed to Xperia mini and Xperia mini pro in nine markets with localization of content and movies - that means if you're in Germany, you probably won't get the movie Purple Rain. Or maybe you love Prince over there too, I don't know.

Minecraft Creators Interviewed by Sony Ericsson, Beginnings Revealed

SO you're the type of person that likes to break down elements into other elements and build gigantic structures out of blocks for the fun of it, playing for hours on end in an environment that you create, yes?

Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY One Buck at Wirefly

Remember back earlier today when a bit of the ol' sale was going on (and may very well still be going on now?) That was the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY for $0.01 at Amazon what we've got here now is another sale for 89 cents more, that being the Xperia PLAY again at Wirefly for a grand total of $0.99, that being also attached to a 2-year contract, but this time with Wirefly Mobile Backup Service Free for Life, plus a $25 Android Market card for games and apps. In this case you're also looking at around $60 a month with Verizon.

Desert Winds Game Coming to the Xperia Play

Desert Winds is coming to the Xperia Play soon and we have been told it is one of the most visually stunning games to come to mobile. It is based around the beautiful princess Amira that must fight for her peoples survival and freedom.

Don't worry we will be reviewing it soon.

Xperia Play with HDMI out spotted in the Wild

When the Xperia Play launched one of the features everyone wished they had was HDMI out. To be able to enjoy those amazing games over HDMI would really make the Play a true gaming phone. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play did not ship with HDMI out, although devices like the Arc did so there must have been a reason behind this. You can see our very own unboxing and hands-on, HDMI out is missing sadly.

Raving Babies for Xperia PLAY Review

Oh my goodness what kind of a weird game is this? It's called Raving Babies, a game out exclusively on Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY being released on Verizon Wireless. The gameplay is simple enough - walk sideways and shoot your gun, defeating the enemies. Just like Ninja Turtles, Simpsons, NARC, and every other game from the 1990s. The difference here is that you've got it on your little screen and you're playing it with an Xperia PlayStation controller. Also the objective is to placate a bunch of hostile babies with your pacifier gun so that you can scoop them up and let them know how bad they've been with a time out!

Xperia PLAY Comes with Screen Skin Protector Attached

So you're sitting there taking a look at your brand new Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY from Verizon and you notice something strange. Something feels a little - off. You think, what could it be? Could this device be broken somehow, am I just losing my mind? No, wait, what's that, is there an extra layer over the screen here that I forgot to take off? No way, man, can't be. But sure as heck it is, a protective plastic sheet attached to the screen, not the same as the rest of the standard packaging safeguards, but one that's meant to stay on for life.

Gun Bros for Xperia PLAY App Review

We're about to go through a big fat marathon of reviews of the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY's device-specific games here and we've decided to start with one that's been out for a few months but seems custom-tailored to be played with the knobs this device offers. Where before we were stuck with placing thumbs on the screen to control the two virtual joysticks this game requires, we're now allowed to use the two much more responsive (mostly due to placement) joysticks provided by PlayStation. Is it enough to make us want to move to Xperia PLAY to continue our game?
