Conclusion: However, if you do plan to get this device, you need to remember what is important to you. Can you live without HD video recording? Can you cope with the really scratchable screen? Are you able to cope with the size and weight of the Xperia play? Can you feel good with yourself about taking a risk with an unknown gaming platform? If yes (or even “I probably could.”) is the answer to those questions, then the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play could be the phone for you.
Summary: Ever since the XPERIA Play emerged, the device gained immediate fame in the smartphone and gaming communities alike. Combining the versatility of an Android with the gaming capabilities of a PlayStation has produced one of the most, if not the most, anticipated smartphones being released in 2011. With all the hype surrounding the XPERIA Play, some may wonder is the buzz truly merited?
Cons: Overpriced, Poor game selection, Laggy browser, Hard to get comfortable grip, Weighty

So, where does that leave the XPERIA Play, a device which gets to wear half the branding from each company?

Excerpt: As it stands today, on the day of review and the precipice of its launch, the Play is looking out on a pretty barren gaming landscape. The Android titles up for grabs are not exclusive to the device and don’t necessarily benefit all that greatly from its unique control scheme, whereas the catalog of classic PlayStation content stops after just one entry.
Summary: The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is different to any other phone on the market and to me is a magical little device. Thanks to the iPhone, mobile gaming is massive now. Games like Angry Birds have made mobile gaming big business and the best way to spend your time when on the train. This is the much-fabled 'Playstation Phone' that everyone dreamt about and gives Sony an edge over all their rivals by putting their PlayStation brand with the Xperia line.

Right off the hop I will say that I found the XPERIA Play an amazing little device.
