Xperia Play 4G joining AT&T’s roster

It’s been a couple of months now since AT&T announced that they will be offering Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Play 4G to their customers. Unfortunately, Big Red is currently the only carrier to sell the PlayStation phone in the US. A couple of weeks back, we told you that phone sales were “meeting expectations” according to Sony.  Hopefully, by adding another release from AT&T, sales will exceed their expectations.

If you’re an AT&T customer and looking to switch teams, September 8th will be the day to get your game on. To help you stand out in the mobile gaming world, AT&T will be releasing a new flavor: “stealth blue”. Along with the color change, you will receive a multimedia dock, music cable, and games to keep you busy.

Games to be included:

  • Dungeon Defenders Second Wave
  • Asphalt 6 Adrenaline
  • Star Battalion
  • Madden NFL 11
  • The Sims 3
  • Tower Bloxx: My City
  • Crash Bandicoot

Other than free accessories and a blue hue, the phone will adorn the same specs as the Verizon version with a $50 price tag on contract.

After realizing it was more like theirPhone, he decided he wanted the ability to customize, so Stacy moved to the OG Droid and has been a loyal Android fanatic ever since. Moving through all of the top tier Verizon phones, he recently retired his Droid Charge in favor of the Galaxy Nexus, only to wonder what great device Samsung will come out with next.

    I love the idea of this phone but it also goes to show you that all the talk from the carriers about Data usage is B.S. -Is anything more intense than gaming in its usage of data? The carriers can’t have it all ways. It is obvious we are talking greed at AT&T and Verizon and nothing else. People should be screaming about the amount of money they want to suck out of the customers for data and now they add a device that uses more.
