Sony confirms Xperia PLAY won’t be getting ICS


Have an Xperia PLAY and itching to get some sweet, ICS action? Sorry to burst your bubble, but it ain’t happening – Sony has confirmed that the Xperia PLAY won’t officially be getting an ICS update. Sony says that after extensive in-house testing, they’ve found that the they cannot guarantee a consistent and stable experience especially with the gaming component of the device (which is the whole allure of the device, after all). This particular observation has also been made by the developer community, and Sony says that  providing the best possible user experience on Xperia smartphones will always be the first priority. In more positive news, Sony’s other Android devices will continue the run to get ICS, which include the Xperia S, Xperia P and Xperia U, as well as their 2011 range that include Xperia arc S, Xperia ray and Xperia neo V. Other devices have been added to the ICS upgrade list, which include the Xperia arc, Xperia neo, Xperia mini, Xperia mini pro, Xperia pro, Xperia active and Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman.
