Default Non-CDMA Phones with Playstation Capability?

Hi guys, Just like the title says.

I'm looking to go to Straight Talk, and I'd like PS support on the phone I'm using, as I like to game quite a bit.

What do you guys recommend?
Keep in mind, I'll have to buy the phone, so nothing too expensive. 200-250 USD is what i'd like to spend. If something is a really good deal I'd go as high as 300 USD though.



EDIT: Sorry for the Title, NON CDMA phones. I need a SIM card to use with straight talk.

What do you mean by Playstation compatibility? Do you mean like the Xperia Play or just the Playstation app?

Do you mean phones that support DLNA? Because a CDMA device wouldn't work on Straight Talk.

Yes, I meant GSM I guess, I'm not familiar with DLNA. I got GSM confused with CDMA I think.

I'll edit the first post.

The Playstation App is technically only available in Europe, but there are modified versions that can be installed on any phone.

The Experia Play has the game controls on the slide out "keyboard" and I think it has games designed specifically for it.

The xperia play does have a Sony supplied playstation emulator with a very small selection of
Ofically supported games you can buy from Sony. You can use some third apps to convert isos of you other games and most work well. Im 12 hours into final fantasy vii.
