The PlayStation phone

It's only natural that Sony Ericsson would show up at the 2011 Game Developers Conference given that just two weeks earlier the company had introduced its Xperia Play at Mobile World Congress.

Though we got the opportunity to check out the Xperia Play while in Barcelona, Spain, we swung by Sony Ericsson's event in San Francisco to give the handset another go. This time we concentrated on its gaming and media features. The first seven photos show you how different games look on the Xperia Play's rich display.

All media will be stored in the media gallery menu. Thanks to the accelerometer, the screen shots will wiggle as you tip the phone.
