It has been revealed that content that was previously purchased on the PlayStation Network cannot be used on the Xperia Play. This content includes classic PlayStation One titles which will be playable on the handheld device.
The news comes from a recent interview with Sony Ericsson's UK managing director Nathan Vautier as he was speaking at the World Mobile Congress, which was held in Barcelona, Spain.
"[Xperia Play owners] will have to re-purchase the games, so it's not totally integrated," said Vautier. "I think the exciting thing is that there are games which people are very, very aware of."
It has been rumoured that the Xperia Play will support 50 titles at the time of its spring launch, later this year.
