GodFather, 28 Feb 2023This is a true Gaming Phone but guys if you are buying this... morerealistically, this phone would suck for gaming in 2023, mostly because it still runs on android 2, and its specs are worse than a 120$ phone nowadays. back in 2011 this would've been a beast of a phone, but nowadays its mostly to show off

    This is a true Gaming Phone but guys if you are buying this phone for Gaming in 2023 then it's better you go for PSP Go instead , because Xperia Play has Android OS and it requires more resources whereas PSP Go has Proprietary XMB and very fast , even in 2023 my PSP hasn't slowed down a bit

              I had this phone. It was great not to great. If you custom kernel to 4.0.4 it can play pubg lite without issue in gamepad controls. But I want the stock kernel.
              I normal play a games an emulator.

                The reason you all will never see the upgrade version of this smartphone is because this smartphone clash with Sony owns PSP brand. This was suppose to be the smartphone version of PSP, but end up it never come the Sony expected fruition. Now, the Android smartphone is making almost all portable gaming obsolete, simply because of Android smartphone fast advancement.
                Another killing reason is because Sony want to have their proprietary PSP gaming that not rely on Android platform also making this smartphone obsolete, meaning Sony wanted to control the software sales like PSP, which is of course very difficult to made possible, since the Android Playstore can be accessed by any Android smartphone.
                So, at the end, Sony only implement PS4 remote play for their later Xperia Z3, and no more portable gaming developed solely for their portable platform.

                  YUKI93, 17 Jun 2021I do hope that Sony can make a modern-day iteration of this... morenever gonna happen. Sony is way too conservative to jump into these kinds of phones again.

                    I do hope that Sony can make a modern-day iteration of this wacky smartphone using the Xperia 5 Mk3's internal hardware. That would be a great portable mobile gaming device.

                        AnonD-99982, 12 Jan 2013is this phone really support USB OTG function? answer me p... moreno

                          I think it would handle more powerful and handle more games if it was released during Android 4.0-4.4 ages since this is supposed to be a gaming device

                            I wish that Sony would make play 2 but same in durability and sound. I personally prefer it's sound over complete Xperia z series. Now I am using Xperia xz premium.

                                I wish mobile companies take customer needs into account and develop different designs rather than just plain, single body phones. Even though their specs are changing, they don't seem too appealing to me. Whenever I have to change my phone for performance issues, and buy a new one, I don't feel like its new, since their appearance is all same.
