Sony puts a price margin on Xperia Play games

Sony Ericsson have lifted the lid on the price of games for the PlayStation-certified Xperia Play, due to launch in the UK at the end of this month. Titles for the device will range from £1 – £10, UK marketing boss David Hilton has revealed.

Speaking to MCV, Hilton said: “The main thing is to offer something different. iPhone is a hugely popular product and Angry Birds on iPhone is a delight.

“But now the hardware allows you to play far more complex games. You don’t want to be playing these with your fingers all over the screen. You want full visibility and the ability to control the games with the sort of interfaces you have on your games console.”

Hilton also spoke on a new app that would allow customers to easily find games on the Android service: “As soon as you slide open the phone, the screen will go into a game finder app that will show you all the games you own and all the games you can download. What we have heard about Android is that locating games in the marketplace is a struggle. So we have created this app to easily navigate through the games.”
