Hey guys I was just helping out the psyonix team with a little beta testing and they don't really have support for our Xperia play.
So I told them to give the xplay a chance and one of the members replied


" Main issue with Gingerbread is that it doesn't actually support the standard Android controller integration (introduced in 3.1), so even if the game suppported it, the controls may not, unless we do whatever special Sony nonsense they have on their phone. "



So I know there are a lot of intelligent ppl on the xda forums so maybe you could help them out and get this awesome game working with our Xperia plays.

If anyone can and wants to help visit these forums,signup and make your post and you could also help with the testing in the beta.

Thank you ppl I hope someone can help get this game on our Xperia Play if enough Xperia play users go sign-up they will want to make it Xperia play compatible.

Oops forgot to post the forum link http://www.psyonix.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=31

You could even just make a post asking for Xperia play compatibility..the more Xperia play users the better the chance of making this cool game work on our phones.
I've tried the beta and trust me it's addictive and really simple tooo..I love it already.

''Supporting the Xperia Play is quite simple (the sample code provided by Sony Ericsson has pretty much everything you need). The only potential sticking point is that it utilizes NativeActivity, which limits your app to Android 2.3 or later. It is possible to check the android version and if the device is an Xperia Play and only use NativeActivity + Xperia Play native library when applicable, but it takes a lot more logic in the code. I'm happy to provide advice for anyone who wants to tackle it, and of course Mupen64Plus AE is open-source so you can use it for reference and copy what you need.''

Thanks a lot I made a topic on the Xperia Play controls on the forum quoting what paulscode wrote.
I may have been slightly negative but these devs are really awesome...I doubt they'd refuse to try.

Well it looks like they just ignored my topic.............
So if anyone over here wants this to happen it would be nice if you could sign up to the forum and bump the Xperia Play topic.

Thanks
