The arrival of the eagerly awaited PlayStation Phone, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play , approaches and one of the outstanding issues is the price of the games. On mobile we have seen that some titles also come in 6 / 7 €, price is not excessive if the quality and, especially, the hours of play, were high.
Sony Ericsson, by David Hilton, speaks of the issue price of the games and starts to throw the pot a bit ‘of numbers. The minor titles, not too elaborate but not bad, should cost 1 or 2 pounds, about € 1.15/2.30.
Different matter, however, for the most important and complex securities. I think such a Final Fantasy, Gran Turismo or Metal Gear, in a hypothetical mobile version that bears comparison with that console. Titles, in the words of HE could get up to 10 pounds, about 11.5 €.
If the figure may seem high, for there to dwell on the fact that Xperia Play – at least in intention – do not want to do a simple port of the touchscreen versions currently available on the market but offer a gaming experience of high level, this to go to battle against PSP and NDS. What you would pay for a game with the attributes on Xperia Play? For a “Final Fantasy Play”, for example?
