Playstation Phone? Xperia PLAY 'Should Appeal to Serious Gamers'

Kiyoshi Ota/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- There are phones for music lovers. There will soon be phones for shoppers. There's now also one for serious gamers.

USA Today's Ed Baig says the Xperia PLAY combines a Sony Playstation with a cellphone.

"It's an Android phone, a little bit heavier and bigger than the typical Android phone because it's got those gamepad controls there," he said. "But it should appeal to serious gamers. For the rest of us, it's a decent device but there are a lot of other nice choices out there."

The Xperia costs $200 with a service plan and $450 without.
