It’s not a rare sight these days to see kids as young as three or even two years old absorbed in video games. What more with the advent of handheld video game consoles, children (plus Mom and/or Dad) have another gadget to fiddle around with and spend their idle time with anywhere, anytime.
It’s no longer surprising to have more and more gadgets being converted to mobile and handheld formats so consumers can bring the gaming experience beyond the confines of the traditional setup – hooked to a television set at home.
The new Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, which combines the functionalities of an Android based smart phone with the PlayStation gaming experience, has landed on Philippine soil this February 2011.
Users get a 5-megapixel camera, a 4-inch multi-touch screen as well as social networking capabilities.
A slide out gaming control lets users access the gaming function of the gadget. Users can expect fast graphics and dedicated game controls.
Features include a digital D pad, two analogue touch pads, two shoulder buttons and the four iconic Playstation icons: the circle, cross, triangle and square. Its Snapdragon processor with a 1 Ghz CPU and Adreno GPU graphics processor gives a 60 frame-per-second playback for 3D mobile gaming and Internet browsing, with minimal battery usage.
