Xperia Play Launching in the UK on 31 March

If you want a new or second smartphone, make it one you can play games on properly - isn't how Sony Ericsson will be marketing the Xperia Play. They'll probably have severed digits on posters around the land.

However, as a gaming phone, Sony Ericsson is at least trying to get it sold in gaming shops, alongside phone stores and online [MCV]. One pleasant move, and a necessity given the price, is that it will ship with six games, with another 50 available on the store, plus all the regular Android games that it can handle.
