ASIA PACIFIC - Today Sony Ericsson announces more than 20 new games, including 10 exclusive titles, optimized 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.
The new titles offer broad appeal to different users and usage occasions from popular, innovative, massively multi-player online titles (MMO) to immersive titles and addictive graphically rich new casual content.
Amongst the titles announced today is Minecraft, the much anticipated game from the Swedish indie developer Mojang, currently setting the industry alight. 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.
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. More details will be shared imminently.
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 programme 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.
