Xperia Play Arrives In March With 50 Games, "Legendary" PSOne Title Pre-Installed

When Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play "PlayStation Phone" becomes available in March ("early spring" for Verizon) it will debut alongside 50 launch titles and come preloaded with what execs said was a "legendary" PlayStation One title.

Other confirmed features include local multiplayer and a wifi hostspot hosting feature for connected head to head gaming.

Really, though, no surprises here. It's a Sony Ericsson Xperia phone that will play PlayStation games (and others).

Is this enough to deter gamers from purchasing the meaty PSP2 or the glasses-free 3DS? Definitely not, but the line between dedicated mobile gaming devices and smartphones grows ever blurrier, no? [Sony Ericsson Facebook Page]
