MWC 2011 Sony Ericsson has officially launched its much-anticipated PlayStation phone - the Xperia Play - confirming the leaks and whetting appetites further with some titillating pre-installed titles.

Revealed at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last night, the Xperia Play is the first smartphone device to run "PlayStation certified" games, accessed through Sony's PlayStation Suite.

The Play will arrive with more than 50 titles available as well as six games pre-installed: Crash Bandicoot, Asphalt 6, Bruce Lee, Star Battalion, The Sims 3 and Fifa 10.

In addition, the device will receive Play-only content, which kicks off with exclusive multiplayer capabilities for Fifa.

As expected, the phone has a 4in touchscreen, a 1GHz CPU and runs Android 2.3.

Have a gander at Sony Ericsson's YouTube page for a handful of interviews and taster clips.

The Xperia Play will be available on all major networks when it hits shelves in April. No word on pricing yet, though. ®
