Sony Xperia Play users have good news. ICS beta update has been announced for Xperia Play. This is made possible by the launch of Android 4.0 beta ROM for the gaming centric handheld which the users can download. Xperia Play users need to unlock the phone as a primary step before installing this downloaded ZIP file.

Sony has updated the OS of Xperia arc S, Xperia neo V and Xperia ray to Android 4.0 a few days before. Now, it’s the time for Xperia Play. The update is not only restricted to these models but other Xperia models including Neo, Arc, Mini pro and Live with Walkman.

When coming to Xperia Play, some of the games have to be optimized so as to work smoothly with this ICS beta update. And so, Sony is now looking forward for the user’s feedback particularly to estimate its compatibility with all sorts of games.
