Verizon slashes the price of the Sony Ericsson XPERIA PLAY to $99.99
Surprisingly enough, the handset just received one fitting price chop from Verizon that manages to place it more in line to what its specs perceive it to be nowadays, which so happens to be a mid-range device. Priced at $99.99 with a 2-year contract now, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA PLAY just might see more life with its gaming centric purpose – especially now that AT&T is on the verge of releasing their own model. But more importantly, the adjusted price undoubtedly fits perfectly with its regarded mid-range specs.
Previously at $200, it definitely was hard to see this one competing against the likes of the Motorola DROID X2 and even Big Red’s trio of 4G LTE smartphones. Still, gamers all around might now be able to take the plunge.

Now why would I bother buying a Playstation phone with inferior specs and lackluster gaming? Better off with a higher end phone with a PSP

Plus we all know the iPhone is a far better game player than the XP is.

If you love the iphone so much why you keep reading about android? I suspect that you wish you had more choices from apple like Android does

another much hype phone which turn out to be a dud just like the arc. sony ericsson still dont know how to make phones for the world market. they should look at samsung and try to learn a thing or two.

I tend to agree! This phone launched with tons of hype that turned into nothing! I disappointment indeed!
I always used to like Sony-Ericsson, but the products they've been releasing lately really leave a lot to be desired! It's a shame really!
