If you like your gaming on the move and don’t want to cart around an extra device with you, Verizon might have the thing you are looking for. It has just been announced that Sony Ericsson Xperia Play lands on Verizon May 26th.
Chloe Albanesius from PC Mag is reporting that the handset will be available to preorder starting on May 19. The handset will cost users $199.99 on a two year Verizon contract. The Xperia Play will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread and will come preloaded with seven games.
These include Asphalt 6: Adrenaline, Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior, Crash Bandicoot, Madden NFL 11, Tetris, Star Battalion, and The Sims 3. You will also have over fifty other games to choose from for download at launch via V Cast Apps.
To recap the handset has a 4-inch multi-touch screen with a 5-megapxel rear facing camera, and is powered by 1GHz Snapdragon processor. The Xperia Play launched in Europe on April 1st but so far sales have been a little slow. Recent problems on the PlayStation Network wouldn’t have helped though.
