We may well have provided our readers with the specs, price and release dates for the much-awaited Sony Ericsson Xperia Play handset, but up until now we have never really heard anything about how much the games for the device will actually cost.
However, it now appears that the game pricing details have now been revealed, thanks to Sony Ericsson’s UK marketing boss David Hilton. As noted at mcvuk.com, Christopher Dring quizzed Hilton recently and one of the questions was on the pricing of the Xperia Play games.
Hilton said that the smaller, lower-tier games will be priced around £1 or £2 pounds, while the more complex games could well cost up to £10. The Xperia Play comes with six games pre-loaded onto it including The Sims 3, FIFA 10, Crash Bandicoot and Bruce Lee Dragon Warriors.
The other two pre-loaded games will be Tetris and Star Battalion. Hilton added that there will be more than 50 titles available to download upon the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play’s launch, and they will be adding more to the list each month.
It’s pretty simple to access these games as well. As soon as the user slides the phone open, the screen will enter the game finder app. The app will not only show them all the games they currently own, but also all the games that are available to download.
