Sony is just lazy

They should stop cramming all that damn bloatware inside of their products. That takes care of any system or tech failures. I can't say they are lazy since they are putting ICS in so many of their phones, how about lets say uninspired.

But the Experia Play series was designed with gaming in mind, you can't very well send out an update that is going to break the primary purpose of the phone. This is the 'Playstation Phone'; that everyone told Sony to make because with the Playstation branding on it it would totally bring them back into the mobile phone business.

The bigger problem I think is that even people who have a Playstation don't want to use their phones for gaming, they want to use them to get work done. I'm an X Box person myself, but I would not have much interest in an X Box phone. The attempt to expand smartphones to gamers doesn't seem to have worked as far as I can tell, but it nevertheless seems like something that should have been at least tried once.

I'm way too used to the level of gameplay that I can expect from a console. Right now I dont think any hand-held, not even a Vita can match what you could expect from a PS3, or an Xbox, I've got both.

I don't have a Vita yet, but if that thing could make regular voice calls, I think that would have been a huge plus, I mean you can get the thing with a data plan, and I'm sure its packing a microphone somewhere in there.
