    I bet Xperia Play will be more expensive than NGP (contract free of course)
    So I don't see the point.

    I've had a Blackberry for a while now, and have wanted to upgrade to an Android phone, so why not this?

    I kind of feel like phones are for calling, texting, and maybe web browsing, and not for gaming. That's why I have my DS, but at the same time I kind of want one of these.

    The only thing is, I don't know how much games are going to be, and if there are going to be any good ones.

    Isn't this just a PSP go with a phone rolled in one?
    I'm not a huge fan of android having now been stuck on it for the next 18 months and finding it annoying.

    So I wonder what its gonna cost. Because its a phone AND gaming item packed into one.

    I'm buying if the battery is decent enough.

    Yeah, if it had been GSM I'd've picked it up immediately. My Aria can play PSX games well enough, but using an onscreen gamepad is a pain in the ass.

    Sorry, but there NOTHING wrong with this, it's beautiful. And it's an Android phone. When I have money I'll get one for me.

    I like this and i think this is a great idea...the only problem i have with it is there is no keyboard...i probably would have preferred a keyboard then dpad and buttons...maybe they could have though of a different way to add them

    Of course, but it's SE decision in the end, they're more or less independants.

    I don't see a reason for it to fail (like NGAGE for example). It's a good Android phone, with good specs. And it'll play games better than any phone released until now, there are people who likes to use their phones to game, so it'll have market.
