Sony Ericsson Xperia Play gets price cut to £390 in the UK

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play was supposed to be this revolutionary device that would be the first gaming-focused smartphone to actually be successful. Yet whether or not Sony Ericsson’s dreams about it have made it to reality is certainly up for debate, with the phone seeing price cut after price cut (which may signal that sales aren’t going all that well).

First, it was the US of A, and now the Xperia Play has become cheaper in the UK as well. Not as cheap as on contract in the US, but still a lot cheaper than what it went for during pre-order season. Eurodroid reports that Play.com, a well known online retailer of unlocked, unbranded, SIM-free mobile phones will now sell you a Sony Ericsson Xperia Play for £399.99, with free shipping. You can also get 10% off if you buy a microSD card with the phone.

Clove is another of the established independent phone retailers in the UK, and it has the Xperia Play up for grabs for just £390, yet without free shipping. So, shipping included, the final price you’ll have to pay will probably be similar regardless of which retailer you choose to purchase from.

This price still doesn’t make the Xperia Play much more affordable, or a great buy at this point, but if you wanted to get one anyway, you’ll surely enjoy the fact that you now need to pay less.

    While a powerful phone , it dosent feature a dual core processer , nor does it have HD video recording  capabilities and a very simple 5.1 megapixel camera so even through it has a 1ghz processer ultimatly its not start of the art , and a drop in price wouldent be too much concerded with it , it’ll take time but will take off. everybody thats on a contrack is more or less alienated from this phone so unless you buy your phones out right  people proboly only have plans to by this , prehaps if the xperia-play-2 can play PS2 games , then that will get alot of attention.
