There’s a lot of excitement surrounding the just announced PlayStation Phone, but we got some not-so-exciting news recently via Gamespot UK. According to managing director for Sony Ericsson UK and Ireland, Nathan Vautier, previously purchased content from the PlayStation Store will not be transferable to the Xperia Play. Here’s what Nathan had to say.
“[Xperia Play owners] will have to re-purchase the games, so it’s not totally integrated. I think the exciting thing is that there are games which people are very, very aware of.”
This is definitely some crummy news for anyone that has a fair amount of PSN content that will be compatible with the new device. Then again, if you’re excited enough about the phone to run out and buy it, you’re likely not going to complain about having to repurchase a handful of PSN games. Unless, of course, you’ve got more than a handful.
