Sony has partnered with Major League Gaming to bring competitive gaming to smartphones. It is called the "Xperia Mobile Gaming Arena Presented by Sony Mobile." Gameloft's Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation will be the first smartphone game to have a competitive league. The league will be available for the Android and iOS and there will be more than $10,000 worth of prizes. Participants just need to link their MLG and Gameloft account in order to compete.

The Xperia PLAY, the first PlayStation Certified smartphone, is also the official smartphone of Major League Gaming. There will be many other competitive games that will be released in the near future. 

"The MLG community thrives on competition and with our new mobile platform, we are now enabling gamers to engage in competitive play no matter where they are," said Sundance DiGiovanni, CEO, MLG. "With partners like Sony Mobile and Gameloft, we are truly taking mobile gaming to a new level."

"Bringing together MLG’s authority in competitive gaming, Gameloft’s blockbuster game titles and Sony Mobile’s immersive mobile entertainment experience, the Xperia Mobile Gaming Arena is sure to deliver a new level of mobile gaming for competitors," said Peter Farmer, Head of Marketing for North America, Sony Mobile Communications.
