Sony's Xperia Play phone boasted PSOne games as a major selling point, but customers don't seem to agree. Less than 1,000 downloads have been registered for the current library of five PSOne titles, excluding Crash Bandicoot, which is pre-installed on phones. 

Destruction Derby and Jumping Flash are among the poorest performers, only managing to rake 50 to 100 downloads. Not great news at all, but Sony has "no concern" over the failure.  

"There’s only a few, at the minute, PlayStation One titles there," said Sony Ericsson's Dominic Neil-Dwyer, "and there’s the whole PlayStation as a content provider exclusive to the device, the story about that, that will emerge and people will see."

Let's not count Sony out just yet! The Xperia Play has not yet gotten Kiss Pinball on its marketplace. That, right there, is the difference maker.

South Park Pinball is the crossover you never knew you wanted

With Marvel, Star Wars, and The Walking Dead under their belts, there's no license too big for Zen Studios to take on at this point. This time around, Zen has teamed up with Comedy Central and put together two new tables themed after none other than South Park. I wasn't sure what to expect, but should have known the tables would be phenomenal.more
