Default Video Game Controls For Mobile Phones Arrives Via Xperia Play

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://arstechnica.com/gaming/reviews/2011/06/more-phone-than-console-ars-reviews-the-xperia-play.ars?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=rss' target='_blank'>http://arstechnica.com/gaming/revie...tm_campaign=rss</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"The Xperia Play, an Android-powered, gaming-optimized phone designed by Sony Ericsson, tries to bridge the gap between PlayStation games and the mobile platform. The Xperia Play's most significant feature is the inclusion of a slide-out DualShock controller-type set of controls, geared toward customers who find themselves carrying a handheld console along with their phone because they are disappointed by touchscreen-oriented mobile games and prefer the more precise experience of a controller."</em><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//adt/auto/1308179412.usr110024.png" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Buttons, buttons and more buttons! The Xperia Play brings joysticks and analog pads to mobile phones! The Play should be out soon, but in the meantime take a look at all the features that it will offer!</p>

What someone should do is to make a Bluetooth accessory. Preferably from someone like HTC or Samsung. Or even Apple. Make it an unofficial standard, even if it's optional, so at least the software developers will know what to code for!
