Sony Ericsson F305 Phone With Motion Gaming First Impressions (Verdict: Underwhelming)

Illustration for article titled Sony Ericsson F305 Phone With Motion Gaming First Impressions (Verdict: Underwhelming)

The Sony Ericsson F305 gaming phone went official today, and the guys at Crave Asia fired off a few first impressions after spending some hands-on time with it. They claim that the screen on the F305 is way too small and the device itself is excessively slippery-which doesn't mesh well with the motion controls. All in all they felt that it had "a been-there-done that vibe to it," but the Wii-esque motion controls are a step in the right direction. Still, it seems that the F305 is a far cry from the PSP phone we have all been dreaming of. [Crave]

DISCUSSION

Mobile motion-sensing games are not a good idea. For one thing, you'll screw up if you're riding in the car and suddenly hit a pothole or other bump. Then what if you get an important call while you're playing? You will screw up more.

Handheld gaming should be left to the DS.
