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.
