Remember the days when the only on-phone gaming option was that weird snake one where the little pixel ate the other pixels and got increasingly longer until it ran into itself and died? Well, the Sony Ericsson Xperia™ PLAY, which combines a PlayStation®-certified gaming device with the capabilities and portability of an Android smartphone makes all other phone gaming options seem like a distant boring dream.

Starting in the New Year, the Xperia™ PLAY will have over 200 optimized games available for download, including FIFA 12, the exclusive version EA's much loved soccer game (or football, if you want to get all fancy schmancy European about it). Using the phone's specially designed gamepad, users can maneuver some of the world's top players like "Chicharito" Hernández and Nicolai Boilesen, and experience high-action game play just as if it were on a larger system that, you know, didn't also make personal calls.

FIFA 12 is the latest addition to the Xperia™ PLAY's extensive catalogue, which includes Dead Space™, Battlefield Bad Company™ 2, Need for Speed™ Shift and Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit—all of which are currently available for free as part of Sony Ericsson and EA's "Get In The Game" limited-time offer.
