Gameloft's mobile sci-fi shooter N.O.V.A. will be getting a sequel, but if you want to play it before everyone else you'll have to buy an Xperia Play, or as most refer to it, the "PlayStation Phone."
The Xperia Play launches in the UK early next month, presumably followed quickly by a launch in the US. N.O.V.A. 2 will be one of the first titles available for the device, and though it can run on other Android phones, it won't be pushed to the regular Android Market until one month later.
Once an exclusive mobile developer, Gameloft has become a bastion of support for emerging smartphone platforms. The publisher was one of the first to create exclusive titles for Samsung's Galaxy Tab Android tablet and will be launching multiple 3D mobile games for the upcoming glasses-free 3D phone from AT&T, the LG Thrill.
So it comes as no surprise that Gameloft is throwing a bone to the Xperia Play as well. This is likely the first of many titles from the publisher that will be making their way to Sony's gaming-centric phone.
