  • Experience personally four new savage weapons (including two melees): Chain Saw, Lewis Heavy Machine Gun, Marine Engine with sharp-edged blades and Repeating rifle, a classic of the American West
  • Enjoy the new funny and handy gadget — the Head-Flator X100 enables to inflate the heads of zombies to XXL size and… Headshot!

Xperia Play Android 4.0 Upgrade Has Been Canceled

Posted by wicked May - 26 - 2012 - Saturday Comments Off

Sony Mobile has confirmed that the Xperia Play’s upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has been canceled, leaving the PlayStation-certified smartphone on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Sony explains that compatibility and stability issues with the Play’s gaming features are to blame.

Other 2011 Xperia phones are still on track to receive the upgrade to ICS, including the Xperia Arc, Xperia Neo, Xperia Mini, Xperia Mini Pro, Xperia Pro, and Xperia Active. These devices will begin receiving an optional 4.0.4 update through the PC Companion app starting next week.

Existing Xperia devices already running 4.0.3 will be getting an update to 4.0.4 around the same time frame. These devices include the Xperia Arc S, Xperia Ray, and Xperia Neo V.

Late June is the date for the Xperia S to get ICS, and the Xperia P and Xperia U should receive it in Q3.

Sony confirms: no Ice Cream Sandwich for the Xperia PLAY

Posted by wicked May - 25 - 2012 - Friday Comments Off

Android gamers, I’ve got some bad news for you: that issue earlier this week that saw the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY removed from Sony’s Ice Cream Sandwich update list has been confirmed. In a press statement today, Sony said that they were opting not to release a final Ice Cream Sandwich ROM, on the basis that a stable experience for both phone functions and gaming cannot be achieved on the older hardware.

Here’s Sony’s official statement:

In regards to Xperia PLAY, after extensive in house testing with our developer teams and working with our partners, we have concluded that a consistent and stable experience, particularly with gaming, cannot be guaranteed for this smartphone on Ice Cream Sandwich – therefore, we will not make the Android 4.0 upgrade available for Xperia PLAY.

This decision was also verified when we received similar feedback from the developer community; both experienced developers and advanced users, along with game content providers following our ICS beta ROM for unlocked Xperia PLAY smartphones.

Sony reached the decision after carefully monitoring feedback from the Beta Android 4.0 ROM that they made freely available to developers and other root users. Their claim of issues is backed up by independent reports. The combination of the Xperia PLAY‘s rather unique input hardware and Ice Cream Sandwich seems to cause some serious issues with games that don’t present a challenge for the more stable Gingerbread build.

Sony reaffirmed its commitment to bring Ice Cream Sandwich to the other members of the 2011 Xperia line. Those of you who aren’t satisfied can still try the beta ROM, or opt for one of the Ice Cream Sandwich builds floating around the mod community, many of which are based on Android Open Source Project code. So, Sony, when are we getting an Xperia PLAY 2, huh?

Sony Xperia Play from Verizon Wireless receives new Software Update

Posted by wicked May - 1 - 2012 - Tuesday Comments Off

 

A software update is now available for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. This latest version (4.0.2.E.0.57) brings many enhancements. Your device will be upgrading to Gingerbread 2.3.4, receiving some camera improvements, resolving a charging issue and more. Along with these fixes, on the downside you’ll also be getting a little more bloat, such as VZ Navigator updates, and Verizon Wireless Video on Demand. Guess you have to take the good with the not so good? See more details on the latest version below:

Applications

  • Verizon Wireless Video on Demand now comes preloaded.
  • Improved user experience and new delivery method of preloaded games.
  • When connected via Bluetooth®, the Music Player now supports Fast Forward and Rewind.
  • VZ Navigator® has been updated with the latest 3D map improvements.

Device Operation

  • Upgraded to Gingerbread 2.3.4 operating system.
  • A long-press of the power button will successfully capture a screen shot.
  • Charging issues forcing device to remain in landscape mode have been resolved.
  • Recommended contacts now populate correctly when using the dialpad.
  • Camera Improvements: Right trigger successfully captures a picture / Record video in 720p with continuous auto-focus.
  • Device is now enabled with the Wireless Emergency Alerting System.
  • Mobile Hotspot ID broadcast can be turned off to increase security

So if you’re ready to upgrade, and are into waiting for that notification icon alerting you, you can manually check for version 4.0.2.E.0.57. From the main screen do the following: Menu > Settings > Software Update > Update Now >Check for Updates.

Verizon Sony Ericsson Xperia Play update headed to gamers soon

Posted by wicked April - 30 - 2012 - Monday Comments Off

Verizon has just outed the details on an impending update to the not so popular Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. The update will bring the gaming smartphone to Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread (no ICS here) and will fix a few bugs and even add a screenshot feature. More details are available from the Verizon update document below.

Verizon is slowly updating all their phones while we sadly all still are waiting for an update for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus to Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, although sources have told us an updated build was recently submitted and should be arriving soon. Sony themselves have released ICS for the Xperia (link below), only that build won’t work with Verizon’s model.

While the Verizon Play awaits ICS this update does bring it to the plenty old Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread. Along with the update users can expect to see a screenshot feature, Verizon video on demand, a new method for delivering games, and more. Sony has fixed some charging issues and added camera enhancements but that appears to be it. All the details are provided in the document from the gallery below for those interested, and hopefully ICS will be coming next.

We are almost positive that this update to build 4.0.2.E.0.57 for the Sony Xperia Play on Verizon is new, but truthfully, we had forgotten that this device even existed anymore. From what we can tell though, this hasn’t been released yet, so it should be on the way any day to owners of the device. After [...]

Well well well, what do we have here? This device looks as if it is the Playstation Phone that never came to fruition. Sony was apparently out to show it still has some tricks up its sleeve back in 2010 by filing a patent for not one, but two sliders on its devices such as the Xperia Play. Many of you are wondering why in the world Sony would file a patent for two sliding keyboards. Basically, Sony was interested in creating a technology that allows for a separate gamepad and full QWERTY keyboard, so it filed for patent approval with the USPTO which is described as:

“A device comprising: an upper unit having a display screen thereon; a first slidable unit having a first keypad thereon, the first slidable unit being slidably connected to the upper unit on a side opposite the display screen, the first slidable unit being movable between a closed position in which the upper unit generally overlies the first keypad and an open position in which the first keypad is positioned generally adjacent the display screen; and a second slidable unit having a second keypad thereon, the second slidable unit being slidably connected to the upper unit and the first slidable unit; the second slidable unit being movable between a closed position in which the upper unit generally overlies the second keypad and an open position in which the second keypad is positioned generally adjacent the display screen”

As you might imagine, the design shows users would allow you to slide out the QWERTY keyboard and then pop that up in order to reveal the actual gamepad keyboard right below that. Pretty neat isn’t it?

We don’t know if there was ever patent was approved nor do we know if there’s a model or prototype out there, but hey— you have you admit the concept sure is sweet.

icsBefore Sony Ericsson became Sony Mobile, the company seemed committed to developing an Android 4.0 update, going so far as to release alpha ROMs for a number of Xperia devices, and more recently a beta for the Xperia Play. Here we are, a quarter of the way into 2012, and Xperia owners are still gnawing on last year’s official Gingerbread. Although, there may finally be a light at the end of the tunnel; the Sony Mobile blog has announced that the first Android 4.0 updates will roll out to select Xperia phones in mid-April. Don’t get too excited when wireless carriers are involved though.
