Sony needs to do more than nothing
[ Not sure Sony will ever read this....but...]
As a new owner of a an Xperia Play, and after learning the chief reason for purchasing it (ICS Upgrade - second to game play) has been tossed into the void, I am more than upset at Sony's approach to this matter.
Please release the source to ICS for the Xperia Play and allow the local XDA, and other, developers take over where you failed.
At present time I cannot, in good conscience, consider any future Sony product purchase because of the monies I have lost over this issue. Sony's reputation and usual quality of product has been forever tarnished by this. To actually have a working ICS, and then tell users you can't have it; after months of promises of releasing it, simply tells me that Sony has no interest in its user base and only knows to take the easy way out - which is to take the money and run.
I look forward to a change of heart at Sony. I look forward to ICS for my phone.
