Xperia Play Set for March 31 Release

Mar 12, 2011 by

Xperia PlayThe Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, also known as the Playstation Phone, has recently been given a release date — the last day of March.

Although currently in a legal struggle with George Hotz, Sony seems unaffected by this — rather, it’s business as usual as they gear up to release their newest product, as if ‘portable’ wasn’t enough, they had to go ‘phone.’

Six games are said to come preinstalled with the Xperia Play, and it is expected to compete with Nintendo’s new Nintendo 3DS.

The phone is said to cost around $800, which is severely high for both a phone and a gaming console, maybe even both.

The carriers and plans have yet to be decided but whether this device does well after it’s PR crisis with hackers and consumer advocates everywhere is all in the hands of these next two weeks.

Good luck Sony, you’re going to need it.
