Dead Space Sony Ericsson is about to embark on another free game giveaway exclusive to Xperia PLAY owners. From this Saturday 1 October, Sony Ericsson will be making four new games free for both current and new Xperia PLAY owners.

These are not trashy games either, they are some big budget titles from EA and include Need for Speed Shift, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, Dead Space, and Battlefield Bad Company 2. Not a bad time to be an Xperia PLAY owner, especially with the Playstation Suite on the horizon too. Roll on Saturday.

Update: The four free games are available to download right now. Just go to your launcher to find the games.

    I saw posts about people complaining that they’re only trial versions and would ask to pay after 15-20 mins of playing. I just downloaded dead space and played it for more than 30mins or so and it didn’t ask for anything. Guess it’s totally free then? Downloading the other 3 games!!!

    all you guys have to do to get the free games is launch the xperia plays launcher. you know, the one when you slide the screen up to see the controls to scroll through games. just go to more games on the bottom right and you will see the free games.

  • Devildonegood8

    all countries all versions.

    where will the notification show up? What will it look like?

  • Devildonegood8

    it will show the normal icon for the game except it will have a white border with the EA logo in the bottom right of the icon. The games are completely free, I have got them all on mine. I have played them and confirmed they are free.

  • Devildonegood8

    I know that the american and european version of the play can get these for free.

    Just checked the “Fine Print” this isnt for old existing users, this is for the new owner who purchase of the xperia during the 1st of Oct - Jan. So my ass who just purchased this phone this past Saturday is SOL upcreek. 

  • InsomGamer

    Then why would they say “new and current owners”?

  • Panzerlink

    I read on another forum where it said Existing Customers Verizon and AT&T both can get the games. yet my Launcher hasn’t updated to get them…
