Sony Mobile has announced that it will not be releasing a build of Android 4.0 – Ice Cream Sandwich – for the Xperia Play. The company’s flagship gaming phone apparently couldn’t be made to support “a consistent and stable experience, particularly with gaming”. Android 4.0 will roll out across the rest of the Xperia range this week – but none of those have a proper D-pad installed. Woe.

“The Xperia Play – it’s the PlayStation Suite on the developer side – is designed to allow for smaller game types, mobile game types, to include PlayStation content. Those more engaging experiences, the ones that allow you to affect the world around you and the world affects your gameplay, will only be available on Vita. The Vita is the premier product in that portfolio, where it has the biggest and best franchises, as well as the smaller pick-up-and-play games. It has so much range and diversity of content, and that’s where Vita is really going to shine.” – Sony’s John Koller, speaking to IG on why Play and Vita are on the market at the same time.
