Need a new cell phone? Want to play some games on that new phone? Sony recently announced that the Sony Ericsson's Xperia PLAY
is now $99.99 with a new two-year agreement on the Verizon Wireless Network. The Xperia PLAY
comes pre-loaded with seven games, including Madden NFL 11, Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline, The Sims 3, Star Battalion, Crash Bandicoot, and Tetris. When I went to the MLG event in Columbus a while back, I took the opportunity to check out the Xperia PLAY
and played a bit of Crash Bandicoot. It's not too bad, and the game itself looks really nice. If you're in the market for a new phone and want a nice gaming experience with it, it's definitely worth checking out.
