Back To School Deal of The Day: Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Now Only $99

xperia play gaming 1

We liked the Xperia Play (aka PlayStation phone) when we reviewed it earlier this month, but we really wished the price was a little lower. Well, Sony Ericsson and Verizon listened and now as part of Verizon’s back-to-school deals they’ve lowered the Xperia Play’s price to a much better $99.99 on new 2 year contract with data plan (down from the original $199.99).

The other specs on the Xperia Play are still the same, like that sharp 4 inch high-resolution touchscreen with slide-out PlayStation gamepad, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, fast 1 GHZ processor with 512 MB of RAM, 5 megapixel back camera with second front camera for video chat, and pre-loaded games of Madden NFL 11, Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline, The Sims 3, Star Battalion, Crash Bandicoot and Tetris.

So if you’re looking for a great gaming phone to kill time between classes this school year, this now looks to be an even better choice for you.

The Xperia Play and its new price are available now from Verizon.

  1. That’s a pretty amazing price for a Gingerbread phone (albeit one with that gamepad)- too bad you’re stuck with the capped data plans if you’re upgrading from a dumbphone
