Hey there, I don't have the answers to some of your questions as I don't do heavy gaming. Here's what I can say...
1. Not sure - I have not tried.
2. Yeah.. I have 3 versions of angry birds here.. all free (had to pay on the Nook Tablet).
3. I have not look there yet (just got this tablet recently and too many other toys showed up at the same time)
4. Plenty good enough for angry birds, pinball and crash bandicoot.
5. Absolutely yes.... lightweight, great battery life, nice shape and textured/non-slip, typing is easy, touchscreen feel/interface is deliciously smooth, etc.
6. Like a mini-Bravia!! (great!)
Good luck and have fun!

edit: ...and this giant TV remote is really fun! I started registering a few different devices but it became slow/tedious to switch selections. So I took the cable box remote page/item and customized it (added more buttons for the TV power, volume up/down , input,... followed by some commonly used buttons for the receiver). So now they're on the same page.

The PS3 controllers are on the screen. If you are familiar with Playstation (which I am not), you should be fine.

2.Are many games from the market available for it e.g angry birds, cut the rope etc
The Sony S Tablet is Honeycomb 3.2, so whatever apps are available for that will work on the sony S.

3.What games can you get from the playstation store?
The device comes bundled with Crash and Pinball Heroes. Ina addition you can get Cool Boarders, Destruction Derby Hot Shots Golf 2, Jet Moto and MediEvil. For $5.99 you can get Jet Moto 2, Jumping Flash, Motor Toon Grand Prix, Rally Cross and Wild arms.

4.Is it fast enough for game use
It has excellent speed for whatever games you play on it

5. If you have it do you consider it a good tablet
No, I consider it an excellent tablet!

6.Is the screen resolution good?
Screen resolution is excellent!
