Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY Review and more coverage
No matter how we slice it, the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY is a unique handset. There is something strangely comforting in having a dedicated gamepad under your fingers, that no touchscreen can replicate. And now, Verizon Wireless customers are no doubt excited as they can also experience the PlayStation phone in their hands!

But let's get to that gamepad, shall we? When we take into account this is a PlayStation-style gamepad, with its trigger keys and analog pads, carrying the iconic PS action buttons, it is not hard to deduce that the first specialized Android gaming handset will have its fair share of admirers, regardless that it's lacking a dual-core chipset. The crazy Xperia PLAY commercials, which include stitching opposing thumbs to little green robots, partially make up for it.

We coral our coverage of the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY with this article, to make you a one-stop shop for everything related to this unorthodox handset. From old PlayStation titles, through classic game emulator play, to titles written specifically for the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY, we are listing it all, right here:
