Xperia Play owners are set to get their hands on yet another exclusive following this mornings Minecraft excitement, this time in the form of Fifa 12.

The new football application will be making an appearance on Xperia Play handsets around Christmas and will remain an exclusive until 21 February 2012.

Fifa 12 will bring with it added gameplay depth and updated teams. The iOS version of the application features clever iPhone and iPad connectivity that allows you to use your phone as a controller. Massively unlikely, but it would be quite special to see something similar on the inbound Sony tablets. 

No screens of the new app as of yet unfortunately. Expect Pocket-lint to keep you posted on all things Fifa as the application gets closer to launch.

Hunter Skipworth

The baby of the Lint team, Hunter has been a tech fan since he bought his first MiniDisc..and what a waste of money that was. He began writing about electronics at the age of 16 and hasn't stopped since. Nowadays he fulfils his mobile phone and gaming obsession whilst attempting to distract people from his bizarre name. Regular meetings with the Gladiators crew see Hunter often returning to work battered and bruised. Considers himself a music obsessive, was once the most highly decorated scout in the country. Fan of trousers.
