Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play, the first PlayStation-certified Android smartphone, will launch in the UK on Mar. 31 with six games pre-installed, according to reports on UK gaming site MCV. The Xperia Play will come pre-loaded with Bruce Lee Dragon Warriors, Tetris, Star Battalion, Crash Bandicoot, FIFA 10 and The Sims 3, with a further 50 games available through the PlayStation Suite online store. 

The phone is currently available for pre-order via many British online retailers, with SIM-free prices hovering around £500 (~$800). Subsidized on-contract prices should be competitive, as the Xperia Play is being offered on all major UK networks. Be sure to check out our hands-on coverage of the Xperia Play for more details. [MCV UK]

Xperia Play set to launch in the UK on March 31 with six games


Of course, with psx4droid, instead of six games, you can have ALL OF THE GAMES.

Seriously, the games library is pitiful, but this phone is a retro gamer's wet dream! I can't wait to play starfox on this thing!
