    Sweet, be sure to let us know what you think of it! Knowing Verizon you have a good shot of getting the phone before the 26th.

    Got my Xperia Play this morning. I found out I could have FedEx hold my package at the distribution center instead of chasing it around because I have to sign for it.

    I'll post more impressions once I fiddle around with it.

    Initial impressions are that the phones is pretty slick. It's a hair thicker than my original Droid, but it doesn't feel that thick. Controller buttons are smaller than a regular PlayStation controller, but not too small.

    I originally wanted a white phone, but the black color is actually very nice.

    Few more impressions:

    I was able to play outside, so the impressions I read earlier about a dim screen were not correct. I simply set the brightness higher in the settings (auto-brightness is always on).

    There is a small gap between the top screen and the bottom controller. It's maybe half a millimeter in size. Probably within normal tolerances, but you can see it if you look for it.

    The sliding mechanism has a strong spring and is smooth.

    Coming from an OG Droid I can use the same usb cables

    I tried FPSE and after learning how to save my settings the controls work like a charm.

    I think the xperia app store is not fully working yet - I can't find all the games. Also, some devs are creating entirely new apps that add xperia play support, which is BAD :icon_evil: I already bought wreckless racers, but to get xperia play support I have to buy the PLAY version. I'm not going to re-buy a game I already have on my phone.

    Also, not all of my apps I paid for are coming up in my market. Like I paid for Need for Speed: Shift on my Droid, but it won't find it and says I didn't buy it on the xperia play.
