Xperia Play loses the support

Bought the Xperia Play? It’s going to stay just as you have it. Unfortunately Sony have announced that achieving a consistent and stable experience with Android 4.0 on the Xperia Play wasn’t something that they could successfully make happen after all their in-house testing. Whilst most of the other phones launched around the same time frame will be receiving an update the Play is is being cast aside into a dark and murky corner beside many of the other devices Sony have discarded. Say ‘Hi’ to the Mylo from us!

"In regards to Xperia PLAY, after extensive in house testing with our developer teams and working with our partners, we have concluded that a consistent and stable experience, particularly with gaming, cannot be guaranteed for this smartphone on Ice Cream Sandwich – therefore, we will not make the Android 4.0 upgrade available for Xperia PLAY."

"This decision was also verified when we received similar feedback from the developer community; both experienced developers and advanced users, along with game content providers following our ICS beta ROM for unlocked Xperia PLAY smartphones."

"Our priority has and always will be, to provide the best possible user experience on Xperia smartphones. In this instance the ICS upgrade would have compromised stability, where we look to ensure a quality gaming experience with games optimized and developed for Xperia PLAY."
