Very Happy with Xperia Play on Verizon

    Mine arrived on Monday and I'm very impressed. I love the fact that it's stock Gingerbread...it's very fast (although I was used to an Iphone 3G which was starting to show its age) and there is barely anything on it that's Verizon-related (I'm going to delete their Navigator stuff once I root mine). It's an emulation dream machine, which is the reason I bought it. I've been playing my Super Nintendo, Nintendo and TurboGrafx games a lot and they're spot-on. Haven't tested it with FPSE yet because I'm waiting for my bigger SD card to arrive to fill that up with Playstation games. I just wanted to say that if you're into old school games and don't want to bring multiple devices around this thing is a dream come true. I also like the fact that the gamepad is so discreet...no one I've showed it to has a clue (which is good when you're 34 and should be "over video games" by now :p) Although it'd be a hit with the ladies I'm sure ;)).

    Glad to hear I'm not the only +30 gamer (okay, fine, so I'm 37) with one of these devices. It's a godsend when I am, as Brad Paisley says: "waitin' on a woman". Also, sitting on the dock at work, people are impressed. Only those that know I'm a gamer are shown the slider...

    EDIT: That came out wrong... THE PHONE sits on the dock on my desk when I'm at work. I do not sit on a dock at work... :)

    I agree :) I own one and my girlfriends are like it's so cool

    haha and this guy last night actually came up to chat me up about my phone.

    He spends time on the forum and it was his first time seeing one because i was playing Bruce Lee while sitting and waiting for a friend and chatted with me for about 15 minutes about it.....

    LOL i do feel so odd, that i'm one of the few girls I know who loves gaming & I'm kicking ass with Bruce lee lol

    I'm 37 and have a massive game collection. My GF thinks I'm a big kid.

    There is no age limit for playing video games if you are of the generation that grew up with Atari, NES, Genesis, et. al. Life-long gamer in my book.

    I'll second that, and add Commodore 64 to the list - it deserves better than "et al". ;)

    I am loving mine! It's really fast, it feels smoother than my Nexus S.

    Hey Carmen...Yongzh created N64oid but pulled it to make it better b/c so many people were complaining that it didn't work well (even when he said in the description that it was in an early stage and only played a few games). Apparently it played Mario 64 really well and Ocarina of Time well but it had some sound issues I think. Anyway, he plans on rereleasing it soon to the Android Market.

    N64 and GC/Wii emulation is a huge crapshoot. You see where devs made mostly sloppy ports since virtually every Nintendo developed product runs flawlessly, and third party games barely run, if at all. :D

    lol i love playing my pokemon haha

    such an 11 year old boy now haha

    but Bruce Lee is such a fun game to play. I swear, i have not had much productivity from playing with this phone so much.

    AND yet another guy came up and asked me what it was lol. Too funny
