The AVENUEinsider loves to play so we are thrilled that Sony Ericsson has released the Xperia Play, the world’s first Playstation certified smartphone. Now you can play super high-tech games while you text, Twitter and Status Update your Facebook page: it’s a Win/Win/Win gadget.

The launch party in the penthouse of the Mondrian SoHo had AVENUE Best Dressed Lister Alexa Chung spinning tunes for a crowd that included Gossip Girl Jessica Szohr, Kimberly Ovitz, designers Christian Siriano and Cushnie et Och’s Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs, Harley Viera-Newton (another AVENUE Best Dressed Lister) and Tennessee Thomas of the band The Like. The crowd of course played games and nibbled food by chef Sam Talbot while slugging back Grey Goose vodka cocktails.

Remember: don’t drink and Playstation – unless you want to lose.
