ESRB listings suggest Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror, Daxter, flOw, and Pinball Heroes are heading to the Xperia Play

According to some listings on the ESRB's website, a number of high-profile games will soon be launching on the Xperia Play and other PlayStation-certified devices.

The Gold Award-winning PSP title Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror is among the games listed as heading to the abovementioned group of handsets and tablets.

Well-received PSP platformer Daxter is another mega-selling title which will apparently be making an appearance on PlayStation-certified gizmos.

Certifiable

The downloadable 2010 PSP game Pinball Heroes is reportedly spreading its wings, too, containing tables based on eight different PlayStation gaming franchises. Fans of Nathan Drake, for example, can bump balls (so to speak) on an Uncharted table, while WipEout fans can enjoy some neon-tinged future pinball.

Finally, the serene indie curio flOw is also slated for release on PlayStation-certified devices. An early success for the PS3's fledgling PlayStation Store, flOw was subsequently ported to the PSP, at which point we slapped a Pocket Gamer Silver Award onto its box. Figuratively speaking.

There's no word yet on when exactly these games will launch on the Xperia Play and other assorted PlayStation-certified devices, but we expect them to arrive soon.

The full range of PlayStation-certified devices currently comprises the Xperia Play, Xperia Arc, Xperia Acro, and the brand-new Xperia S. Sony's S and P Android tablets are both PlayStation certified, too.

spideralex90: Rooting and using Link2sd is a requirement with the Xperia Play imo... I have over 420 apps installed split between rom, internal, sd, link2sd internal expansion and believe me it's like some form of evil balancing trick and I managed to just squeek it all in and managed to force it to run nice and smooth... I make heavy use of stuff like titanium backup (for removing from rom, moving to rom, etc. certain apps that I use religiously), link2sd for both moving stuff to sd but also using it to link stuff to the extra sd partition and fake it as internal (for games that I can't move to sd), autokiller to get a bonus perk of truly killing off apps when they aren't really running and setxperia to manage my overclocking... I made a profile that keeps the cpu at 1Ghz no matter what ;) Autostarts is pretty much a required program tbh, needed to ensure that autostarting bullshit doesn't eat every single chunk of free ram. I have a 1GB link2sd partition on my 32GB card that has 2MB free, 40MB free on my internal (as it's the required minimum for the system to operate properly), 50MB free on the system and about 400MB left free on the rest of my SD card atm. This means I have ~90% of the gameloft games that are for Xperia Play, 4 PSX games and around 200 games that are either really good android games or xperia play optimized titles. I still have to install anomaly HD from the humble bundle and a handful of others, but in general I've packed it pretty tight and it shows! I use SPB Shell 3D and on first boot (or if the game is heavy enough that it closes it to make the system run faster) it takes almost a minute and a half to lead itself and all the APK info... Looks beautiful though with the nice 3d effects, very smooth once loaded and all the full panel caldendar, moon, weather and calculator widgets are just beatiful and useful! Unfortunately takes ~90MB by itself, but I've managed to tune my system to still have about 90MB free even with it running. I would install more games, but I know that it's impossible given the constraints... I just can't fit anything else into the mix! Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack is a major PITA as there is no way (rooted using link2sd or not) to move it from the internal anywhere else... Titanium Backup is either choking on the amount of apps, but I've used it extensively to get my system to this state, now that I've pretty much accomplished it titanium backup is overwhelmed ;) So it IS possible to install crap tonnes of games, but you have to be careful and have a slight idea of what you're doing... if you don't use some form of autokiller or process killer you will wind up with an unusable slow system for gaming within a few run games on a base Xperia Play btw!

We need more 1-finger landscape view games for use on the desk dock.

@juliofb: How do you have all those installed on your Play? I have so many problems with low memory.

Great titles! I'll disagree with allplayedout though: there is quite an impressive list of great games for the Xperia Play, I had to uninstall a couple of games this week cause the device memory is on its limit.

Here my list of games that I wont uninstall:
Shooter:
MC3
NOVA 3
Sleepy Jack Star Battalion
GOF 2 (free)

Adventure:
9 mm
Dead Space
Tintin

Sports:
Asphalt 6
FIFA 12
TrialX2

Platform:
Cordy
Experiment (free)
Sonic CD
Stardash
They need to be fed
Roboto

RPG: Grinsia

Indie/ Puzzle:
Kamikaze
Minecraft
Monopoly
Peggle
Plants vs Zombies
Tetris
The sims
UNO
World of Goo
Toki Tori
Pixel Rain (free)
Anomaly

Not all of them triple A, but all great great fun! Looking at the list, there is a lack of deep RPGs. Maybe we could use a Half Minute Hero entrance on the Xperia Play, pretty sure the hardware can handle it. ;-)

Hurrah. About time. If it wasn't for emulators (not that I use them of course) the Xperia Play would have very few triple AAA titles to fall back on. Maybe, this will now change?!
