FIFA 12 will be a timed Xperia Play (Android) exclusive, Eurogamer can reveal.
Xperia Play owners can play the football game this "holiday" (autumn), whereas all other Android device owners will have to wait until 21st February 2012.
On Xperia Play, FIFA 12 will apparently run at 60 frames-per-second thanks to the machine's extra graphical clout. Audio has been polished up for Xperia Play, too.
Sony Ericsson released Minecraft Pocket Edition as an Xperia Play exclusive today. Eurogamer now understands that Minecraft Pocket Edition is a timed exclusive as well, although there's no word yet on when the other Android versions will launch.
