Xperia PLAY Becomes Gameloft’s Best Performing Android Platform

While the Xperia PLAY did suffer various launch problems, from a “freight issue” to a mobile provider pulling out from the launch due to bugs, the platform’s biggest publisher, Gameloft, has announced that the phone is “already a top device” in terms of game sales, beating out tough competition from other Android phones.

Man, hurry up and release this thing stateside. I need one. Glad to see that there's already such support.

doctorstrange4820d ago

In the full interview, you'll see Gameloft are planning long term for the PLAY, so it'll definitely have legs.

zootang4820d ago (Edited 4820d ago )

I got one (uk) and I love it! Best phone i've had for a long time. Would like more PSone classics, choice is limited at the moment. Also could do with more news on upcoming games and if PSP games are coming.

Can't reply need bubbles!

Stealth20k4820d ago (Edited 4820d ago )

just get a ngp. Youll be able to play all these shovelware mobile games plus actual portable games

the windows phone hasnt really taken off. Neither will this

@ below personally just give me a regular cell phone. And decent games is being very kind.

I thought the prices were leaked at around 600 dollars . Not cheap

BigWoopMagazine4820d ago

...but... you won't be able to call people.

Which is primarily the point of this, I think, to serve those with different needs. Some people like me just need a phone, which can offer decent games during random down time. Other people need a portable gaming console, which will focus all it's resources on providing stellar gameplay. I don't really game outside the house unless I'm really, really bored, so I would go with a phone that can offer something better than Tetris, but is still primarily a phone first and foremost. Hopefully it's also cheaper, more durable, has longer battery life, and other similar benefits that come from foregoing all the bells and whistles.

because both devices meet different needs. One is a smart phone, the other is a handheld.

Just because I have a handheld doesn't mean I won't need a smart phone too.

Spinal4820d ago

Exactly what BigwoopMag just said. Its like Stealth don't understand that there are people Who don't want the NGP/3DS.

We want a phone that can game with controls too. Hence the xperia Play, I'm buying mine tomorrow!

silvacrest4820d ago (Edited 4820d ago )

im sure stealth knows that for well, ALL his previous xperia play comments have ALL been negative

he keeps trying to pedal the ngp as a superior device, which it is.....for gaming and only gaming, that's all

and as for "Youll be able to play all these shovelware mobile games plus actual portable games"

where's your proof? no one at the playstation meeting mentioned anything about android games coming to the NGP

anyone interested in this device, dont listen to stealth, hes expressed no interest in this phone since before launch and only comments to be negative, my advice is to go to a local phone shop and try it for your self, dont listen to some guy who cant even must one good word about it.....plus he has one bubble for a reason lol

i actually have this phone (i live in the UK) and its great, emulators and official games are surprisingly decent and run well, plus all the android apps make it pretty sweet

Yeah, all this good news and I'm just watching. Release in the U.S. please.


negroguy4820d ago

Cant wait for this phone. Id love for some good RPGs on the go from the PS certified side. Might not happen but I can hope and overall the phone looks solid.

Trroy4820d ago

Well.. presumably everyone who bought this phone was planning on buying games for it, which is not the case for other phones, really.

Still, its good to hear that it pushes gaming so well on Android.

Gameloft and Microsoft partner up to bring hit games to Xbox Live

Neil writes: "Since the turn of the millennium, Gameloft have established themselves as one of the very top innovators in their field, creating games for various platforms. With the mobile scene being their bread and butter, you would have been able to enjoy a whole host of their titles on your iOS or Android device. Now though they are partnering up with Microsoft to see the Xbox Live service roll out across the mobile gaming landscape."

Major move by Microsoft here. Already enjoying these games with Xbox Achievements/Live, through Windows 10 on my Surface Go, but now that they are bringing them to iOS and Android, even more people will be able to experience Xbox Live no matter where they are. More of this.

KyRo1868d ago

Major move? These guys make rip offs of popular console games for mobile 😂

Ricegum1868d ago

Let them have some fun.

meep3161868d ago (Edited 1868d ago )

Say what you want about the games, they are popular. There’s all kinds of things I don’t like that make money, doesn’t mean I’ll dismiss them as worthless.


Name a game that’s not influenced/ripping off another game in this day and age. Go ahead I’ll wait...

343_Guilty_Spark1868d ago

And they are very good knockoffs. That racing game is high quality.

timotim1868d ago (Edited 1868d ago )

Regardless how you feel about the games themselves, they make some of the highest rated and most popular mobile games out there. Are you telling me this isn't a smart move???

Google Play Store:

Asphalt 9 - 4.6 out of 5 rating, 847k+ downloads

Asphalt 8 - 4.5 out of 5 rating, 8 million+ downloads

Dragon Mania Legends - 4.6 out of 5 rating, 2 million+ downloads


Asphalt 9 - 4.8 out of 5 rating, 300k+ downloads, #2 in racing on the platform

Asphalt 8 - 4.7 out of 5 rating, 98k+ downloads

Dragon Mania Legends - 4.8 out of 5 rating, 43K+ downloads

This is a major move because its never been done before by a major platform holder like Microsoft. I dont see why they would stop there either. They are the only ones with the infrastructure and will to pull it off. Major titles on console, PC and mobile (phones and tablets and TV), all running Xbox Live...Im sorry but thats a smart move.

Those are some pretty high metacritic scores.

Where are we at this moment? Are we currently celebrating review scores or are we still blaming bias journalists and clickbait reviews?
