I'm still super skeptical about the device. The fact I would have to re-purchase any PSN content doesn't thrill me, either.

Will this come out in Japan?

TBH after watching the launch title videos they look to be iPhone ports of existing games and not very good. Some standard Android games looked better than what was shown. Though I'm interested to see how the PS1 games play on it. Best thing about the device is the dedicated game buttons. Even the specs are less than impressive compared to the other devices shown at MWC. I'd also be skeptical about purchasing an SE device after Xperia took ages to get an update. Personally I'd rather just wait for the NGP...a proper mobile gaming platform.

that reg. number is not people who just play games those are developer's who make games an many of the companies they work for.

if you notice one of the developer's listed: Microsoft...for people that would think that Microsoft would never make a game for the Xperia play...well not so fast!
