Analyst: Sony could win mobile gaming race with NGP or Xperia Play

If EEDAR's Jesse Divnich were a betting man, he would place some money on Sony possibly winning the mobile race this year with NGP or its Xperia Play phone.

Speaking with NowGamer, noting that both 3DS and iPad 2 launched in the UK today, Divnich insisted that Sony could emerge from the back of the stretch to prominence in 2011.

"If any product could do it, it would be the Xperia or NGP," he said. "Both are amazing pieces of technology that truly evolve the mobile and portable gaming markets."

However, in order to do this, Sony needs to supply plenty of content in order to compete with Nintendo's 3DS.

"Only one portable gaming system has the likes of Mario, Donkey Kong, Pokemon, Link, and many more," said Divnich. "At the end of the day, it all comes down to content, and in that domain, Nintendo is king."

Sony has yet to set a date for NGP, and its Xperia was originally slated for an April 1 release in the UK, which it will now miss due to "“some bugs in the software."
