Despite price drops, some would say the Xperia Play wasn’t the hit it should have been. In spite of this, Sony Ericsson said that their gaming phone is “meeting expectations”. We’ve also seen the Play showing up in different color flavors recently as well. Sony Ericsson is hoping for a big sales bang for the device this holiday season.
How can it compete with all the dual-core power goodness coming this year you ask? Well, Sony Erricsson has this to say:
“When you go into things like dual core versus single core, what a lot of people don’t understand or appreciate is the actual benchmarking and the ability of a device to do what they do, dual core doesn’t mean it’s faster. This is PlayStation Certified, and it’s been proven by all of the discussions of a very technical nature we’re having with publishers”
Well Ericsson you’re right, the masses don’t understand you can make software run faster on a slower processor. It makes me think of the PlayStation consoles (or any game console for that matter) where they games get better graphically while the hardware stays the same. Or how about PCs getting faster and faster, but Windows just became more of a resource hog? I’d like to see Sony do well in the Android market, so hopefully as they continue to pump out games things will work out. I think there is a place in the market for this device, don’t you?
