Well, that puts me and just about anyone else with a brain in the average tax bracket, out of the running.

That's close to a 32GB iPhone 4 without a contract. I don't see what the big deal is. You guys do understand most people get phones with contracts at like $99-$199.

I have a PSP already and this thing has PSP GFX, I don't need.

I am scared for the price of the NGP with this thing at that price..

Might just stick to my PS3 xD

I doubt it would be $900, it will most likely be something like $699. Still, everyone buys these phones on contract, which makes price almost meaningless.

And what incredible new features does the Play have to warrant the price tag? The iPhone 4 came with dozens of improvements over the previous model whereas the Play is just standard fare, especially in the hardware department.

silvacrest1964d ago

what dozens of improvements are you talking about?

i count a better screen, better camera, better processor/gpu......what else? the design is a personal thing

the xperia play is something genuinely new and not a successor to anything so why your comparing it to a device that has had 3 different variations over a number of years, i dont no

VonAlbrecht1964d ago

I don't even own an iPhone 4, but those features alone you listed are enough of an example if you look at what the Play is bringing to the table. A controller.

It's not genuinely new at all. It's a regular Android phone with a controller. I already have a phone, and I already have a PSP. Late to the game, Sony is today.

About standard price for an iPhone 4 when it launched, too.

Yup, it's yet another article written by some clueless author who must normally get the bottom of the line $0 phone with a 2 year contract.

The Play is priced about the same as every other high end unlocked smart phone.

When the N95 launched it was $1300 is the US unlocked.

plb1964d ago

Love Sony but not at that price.

Nizzy791964d ago

$900 without a contract? oh... $900 without a contract, now i want one!

VonAlbrecht1964d ago

The iPhone 4 was roughly $600 on launch. You're basically paying $300 for arcane hardware and a controller.

The iPhone 4 was the same price in the EU when it launched. You can't compare the US price to the USD-converted EU price.
