Sony Ericsson Announces Over 20 New Games For Xperia Play

Sony Ericsson has announced more than 20 new games, including 10 exclusive titles, optimised for Xperia™ PLAY. The new games, many of which will be showcased at the world’s leading games expo, E3, June 7-9, add to the more than 60 titles already available for Xperia™ PLAY.

Amongst the titles announced today is Minecraft™, the much anticipated game from the Swedish indie developer Mojang. Minecraft™ is one of the fastest growing game franchises in history, with over eight million registered users announced to date and over 50,000 new players joining every day.

“As Xperia™ PLAY becomes available in New Zealand, the portfolio of great games continues to grow and we are delighted to announce 20 new games optimised for Xperia™ PLAY,” said Brendan Johnston, Managing Director, Sony Ericsson Oceania. “By building on the open Android ecosystem, we’re providing a brilliant opportunity for developers and game publishers to bring their best titles to new audiences and fantastic new experiences for Xperia™ PLAY owners. Keep watching this space.”

In addition to the new titles announced today, Sony Ericsson can confirm that new games from Sony Computer Entertainment’s stable of classic PlayStation 1 titles will be coming to Xperia™ PLAY shortly.

Sony Ericsson’s support for the Android ecosystem also includes its partnerships with key industry players, such as Unity and Havok, with whom it is working to build an ever growing ecosystem. Sony Ericsson is launching a program to support and find new upcoming innovative developers called “Stand out from the crowd”, which enables game developers to become part of the Xperia™ PLAY story and get their games the profile they need.

Sony Ericsson will be present at E3 in Los Angeles, June 7-9, to offer first hands-on demos of Xperia™ PLAY and many of the new games in the Sony Ericsson booth 713.
