I never specified any screen size or general size.

If the shield would have a design like the xplay, i'd get it

Dude, do you know anything about design engineering? The hardware you posted needs significant size, the shield isn't bulky for the hell of it, it needs proper cooling and ventilation. And don't call me kid, i'm probably 20 years older than you at least.

You would probably be better off modding a newer phones housing to fit a game pad and program the software for it

you know i was also thinking that, find a way to make the bottom half of the xperia play attachable on other phones and connect via bluetooth

but the idea of a boosted xperia play had more imagination lol

just killing time untill KitKat is mainstream on xperia play, im still dreaming...

Well your gunna need a lot of soldering skills and software development skills to mod a new chip in....remember that guy a long time ago that tried to solder a HDMI to his phone but he failed.....and to think that that was just HDMI not a whole new SoC

The hardware was there if it was mounted correctly defiantly.
It just needed a good software implementation, something probably hard to do not to mention that'd there probably need to be big backend stuff done in the kernel e.t.c.
