Does this thing have a Super LCD? It would be a shame if it didn't! It probably won't be out til the summer and it's a shame that it won't be LTE. But I still hope that it will be a big seller because it's about time gaming takes off in mobile.
From what I understand, no, the Xperia Play is a standard WVGA quality LCD screen. Such a shame. Graphics/Screen wise, its virtually on par with the HTC Thunderbolt as both use the same CPU/GPU chipset; only difference is it's a smaller screen.

I hope this is good

I fell for the N gage and I still have it.
I hope it goes well.. I will get on more than likely. being a gamer and all 🙄
Yeah, I hope it's good too. I just read a review on Engadget and they didn't like it that much. Apparently the screen isn't the best but they removed Xpheria's UI which was a huge lagger on the original Xpheria. From the looks of it, many Android devi...
