Xperia Play getting free EA games in October

To goose its gaming smartphone, Sony Ericsson is offering four EA games for free over October, starting with Need for Speed: Shift. Sure, the game is only a couple of quid on the Android store, but hey - free is free and the Xperia Play is hardly seeing a torrent of games recently.

Still it is getting Lara Croft soon and, if the price cuts are kicking in could be building a nice little niche for itself, dunno what the other titles in the offer are, but will update when I find out. Plus, the Xperia Play will be getting the Gingerbread OS update in October, making it an even better device.
