The gaming phone, which will retail for $199 with a new Verizon Wireless plan that includes a $29.99 data plan, will launch in the U.S. on May 26. The system runs the Android 2.3 OS, and will come preloaded with seven games: Asphalt 6: Adrenaline, Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior, Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation original), Madden NFL 11, Star Battalion, The Sims 3, and the portable stalwart Tetris.
Verizon will begin taking preorders this Thursday for a May 26 release. Sony says there will be 50 downloadable games available at launch, including many original PSone titles.

So who really wants this phone? It doesn't look very impressive as a gaming device.
Well, I'm stuck with att, buy I'm very interested to see what this thing can do when rooted.

I got an Xperia Play recently. A friend of mine is a Verizon dealer and he actually traded in his other Android to get the Xperia - how's that for a sales pitch?
It's unfortunate Sony doesn't have the PS Suite up yet, I don't know why they would release a device like this and not have the infrastructure ready to support it. The PS1 games available are all pretty forgettable and you can't even find them easily on the Marketplace.
I do enjoy being able to navigate menus with the D-pad, though, and emulators on it are awesome. I love being able to have my NES collection on my phone at the bus stop.
It's very nice hardware and if Sony would support the device more, I think I'd be totally satisfied.
