Get the Xperia Play Gaming Experience on the Xperia X10

As virtually everyone knows, one of the coolest features of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is, without a doubt, it’s ability to play Playstation games. The capacity to play old favorites on an Android phone and have that nifty controller just sounded like such a good idea. The sad part being that not many other phones can share in the Playstation love.

For users of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, you can kiss those days of incompatibility goodbye. XDA Senior Member DiKeJ has been able to successfully port the Playstation certifications and the Xperia Play launcher to the X10, allowing users the same look, feel and access to Playstation games that the Xperia Play has.

The modification is pretty straightforward and only requires that you’re rooted and have your favorite file manager ready. Just take the .jar files, place them in the appropriate folders, reboot and install the attached apk and you’re off to the races. There are a couple of setbacks and unintended features, as DiKeJ notes:

*Info#1 – Tested on 2.3.3 ROMs, don’t know if this work on other.*
*Info#2 – It can improve performance of ROM and free RAM a little, that’s beacuse of some comends/scripts. Cheers.*

So if you’re toting an Xperia X10 and want some Xperia Play Playstation goodness, head on over to the original thread for complete instructions, download links and, once completed, fun like you can only get from a Playstation game.

But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
