Do you remember, Xperia Play? It was the same smartphone which was announced by Sony Ericsson during the Mobile World Congress held last week in Barcelona. The smartphone was awarded as the world’s first Playstation certified phone. Now, the same Xperia Play is up for pre-order through UK’s online reseller Play.com.

Pre-Order Sony Ericsson Xperia Play

Xperia Play has been made available for pre-order and has received the release date of Feb 25. Play.com has listed Xperia Play for £514.99 (Rs. 37,500), and surprisingly the release date for the LG’s Optimus 3D phone and the Xperia Play is the same i.e 25 Feb.

Although, LG Optimus 3D is also gaining some momentum as a casual 3D gaming device as manufacturers like Gameloft and Angry Birds are coming to the it in 3D.

So, we have a situation to decide, is this going to head-to-head competition between smartphone-gaming consoles or not. Do tell your opinions through comments.
