Xperia Play

Xperia Play - Looks like practically everyone's got their hands dirty on NGP's smartphone cousin. Sony s not-so-secret PlayStation Phone aka Xperia Play is now official, and will see an official launch on February 13 on Facebook. Sony Ericsson's Facebook page has a countdown timer and a video of the latest Superbowl TV advertisement embedded within the page.

What we do know at this junction is the Sony Xperia Play is an Android smartphone with a gamepad and access to PlayStation Suite. That's about the extent of its association with the PlayStation name, as the phone got no mention during the NGP conference. So don't expect to play full blown NGP games on the Xperia Play; not with that big a difference in hardware compared to the multi-core goodness of the NGP.

The Xperia Play is more of a step up for casual gamers on the Android platform, with its dedicated gaming keys. Sony seems to be treading the thin line between the handset's gaming credentials being overlooked by casual gamers and the hardcore gamers sticking to the NGP. Let's hope it doesn't go down the same path as Nokia's N-Gage.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
