PSA: Xperia Play's game library has grown over 200% since my review.
So the biggest request I've received since I started xperiaplaygamer is a sort-by date option. Putting that system into place would be easy...hunting down release dates for 367 games, however, would be a nightmare:)
On an insane little whim, I decided to see what all related info I had to see if I could turn this request into a reality.
While doing so, I noticed that my Xperia Play review (from November '11) noted 173 games under Xperia Play's belt. Then I had a major "holy crap!" moment. Between then and now; not only did Xperia Play's library do more than double, it jumped 6 shy of 200 games
! While these are typical numbers for the smartphone app scene, this figure is not
typical for the higher tier of smartphone gaming where physical gamepads come into play. While they'd solve a ton of problems, most gamepad solutions get ignored so badly that they fall into the "Totally goddamned useless outside of emulation" pit of oblivion.
...and through some form of psychotic paradox (that I can't even make sense of), Xperia Play manages to not only have quantity, but has a breathtaking 334 out of 367 games scoring between 70%-100%
(going by Google Play Store ratings, of course).
Correct me if I'm wrong, but there's not been a single gaming handheld released in history that lasted over a year and had positive reception on 91% of it's entire library - that in itself may be even wilder than the near 200 game growth!
Just sharing the tidbits of optimism & good news:)
