The Havoc Physics game engine, showcased in games like Fallout: New Vegas and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, will be making an appearance on the Android platform, courtesy of Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play smartphone. Havoc had this to say,
“As part of Havok’s overall support for the Android™ platform, we are very pleased to partner with Sony Ericsson to put the full power of the Havok product line into the hands of Xperia™ PLAY developers. We were extremely impressed by the performance of the Xperia™ PLAY and the ease with which we were able to port and optimise our technology to the platform. This will enable developers to use Havok technology to create cinematic, rich 3-D immersive games for Android™ smartphones with Xperia™ PLAY in the forefront.”
The Xperia Play may not be a dual-core phone, but it appears the developers are 'wringing' every bit of performance they can out of its hardware in preparation for a successful launch later this year. This phone is scheduled to hit in the Spring on Verizon and the many developers working directly with Sony to optimize games for it make it look more promising than ever. Check out the video above and see how it is shaping up.

Wow. But I wonder. Will there be other ways for non sony phones to somehow play these games. Is there a universal keypad out there for android phones?
