Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY owners will be glad to hear that Max Payne Mobile will finally be released on Thursday 14 June. The game was released on iOS platforms back in April, but has taken an extra few months for the Android port.

Max Payne Mobile will be optimised for the Xperia PLAY joypad and feature high-resolution textures and Social Club connectivity. The Sony Xperia S is also an officially supported device. Developer Rockstar is promising that this will be the “full classic Max Payne experience” and will cost $2.99 on release via the Google Play Store.

    Sony’s rationale for canning the ICS for the Xperia PLAY was performance issues with games. If this is indeed to be believed, then one has to wonder why Sony hasn’t released the updated Adreno 205 driver. The driver update was released by Qualcomm on the 30th of December at the end of LAST YEAR. The update is believed to give a performance increase of up-to 1.5x or even 2x in some cases depending on phone and app. This is just one in a number of very simple measures that Sony could but haven’t taken to bring us a stable ICS to the Xperia PLAY. Another is the clock speed/frequency. It is currently clocked to a measly 1Ghz while it can be safely clocked to as high a frequency as 1.9Ghz, so why not clock it to a still very stable 1.4Ghz, would this not increase performance to a sufficient enough level? Alas, this brings me back to my earlier criticisms of Sony’s dev team and their utter incompetence, or at best, lack of giving a damn for supporting older devices. I was foolish to expect better from Sony, a lesson well learnt indeed
