From the way we're seeing the current issues regarding the smartphone competitions nowadays, to those who may concerns, it is obvious that the latest rivalry may be erupted between the newly upcoming Sony Ericsson's phone, the Xperia Play, and the one we may recognized as the world most ultimate smartphone so far, the iPhone. The official winner will be announced sooner the Xperia Play hits the store approximately next month (March 2011), but of course, we may yet to predict which one is better.
Xperia Play VS iPhone
Based on Sony Ericsson's UK Marketing Manager David Hilton, he stated that due to the few special reasons, the Sony Ericsson is firmly back on the track of smartphones games, "It puts our smartphones out there with the latest Android technology, the benefits of that coupled with the best of Sony technology that make using a Sony Ericsson much more satisfying, much more enjoyable and frankly much more cool than using an iPhone.", he added.
In another debatable point, he stressed that Xperia Play may not only concern by the looks and fabulous integrated technology in term of specification, but also through the pricing tagged on the mobile device. For now, there is no telling about the actual price yet, but Hilton did reveal some hints about it, saying that it will cost "the same or probably a little bit less" than the iPhone's. Of course, the winner will be determined by the technology AND the price relevance. Hence, if Xperia managed to come up with a
But hey, this is not the only main topic to be discussed here, since there will be another competitor that capable of challenging the Xperia Play; it is its own distant brother, the Next Generation Portable alias PSP2!
Xperia Play VS Next Generation Portable (NGP)
"If someone wants the ultimate gaming machine and is prepared to wait until later in 2011, then the NGP might be for them - but they would have to carry another smartphone and many people don't want to do that.", so David Hilton pointed out that way.
Some of the community said that the way Sony introduced both of the gaming devices at a nearly the same time, it might lead to the condition where the customers might be confused on which one to pick, since they are from the same company, with possibly within nearly the same specifications! Well, to give credits on which one should be purchased, it is a very hard job to be done, but within a few measurements we'll be discussing now, the customers will
The customers will be given options of priority; first phase, are you more into the casual or hardcore gaming experience? If you chose to be the casual ones, then the Xperia Play will be the good thing for you. It comes with great specifications and features, including motion and gesture-based gaming features, and yeah, it should be enough to power up the 3D games. The released 50 titles for the phone aren't sound bad at all, especially the well-known Assassin's Creed, Battlefield, and Dead Space franchises. Of course, you can't expect the graphic to surpass the NGP, since the handheld portable will be using a different engine and features, but it is satisfying enough for a casual gamer.

But if you're about to gain the hardcore gaming experiences, then NGP is definitely the right thing for you! Why? Because it comes with tremendous special features and capabilities, where from that point, you can pleasantly choose which pleasured you the most. For instance, you may choose to play the games with the d-Pad, or simply using the touch screen or track pad on the back of the device. For specific info about the NGP, click HERE.
Second phase, the price. If you got bunches of dollars in the wallet, then you will face no problem, go for both of them! But, if you're losing money, i'm suggesting you to wait for the NGP, since the price may seems to be a little bit higher than the former PSP and shouldn't be expecting to exceed the price of an iPhone. And, if you're ready to go for dollars, then pick the Xperia, since we have already known from Hilton's statement; the price might exceed or less than the iPhone. (in other word, it will stays costy)
To conclude these, we just have to wait for them to show up, and sooner the elimination of options will be taking the places. :D
