Sony Ericsson has launched a phone aimed at fans of the PlayStation.

The Xperia Play will feature up to 50 games that are available on Sony's gaming console.

The phone has gone on display at Mobile World Congress (MWC), which is under way in Barcelona.

The software giant already has a tie-in between its mobile operating system, Windows Phone 7, and the Xbox gaming console.

Andrew Webb asked UK and Ireland Managing director of Sony Ericsson Nathan Vautier whether the company is trying to catch up with Microsoft?
