Sony Ericsson Xperia Play teams up with Havok gaming tools


The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play has been seeing a fair amount of action online, and Sony is looking to cement the Xperia Play into gaming minds and hearts alike. How do you do that? Push the Xperia Play into the hands of professional gamers that’s how.

Sony will be teaming up with Havok, who provides tools that are used in high-profile games like Epic Mickey, Fallout New Vegas, Uncharted 2, Demon’s Soul and Bioshock 2. Given the tools are cross-platform, this may give the Xperia Play a little boost in popularity, regardless of favorites.

Sony will also be teaming up with MLG (Major League Gaming), which is a smart move to push this device into gaming spotlights, thus giving it the appearance of a gaming platform, rather than just another smartphone. The Xperia Play will be the official device of the MLG.
