    Try check the source of the file (view source in browser)

    This is what it states:
    Code (Text):
    1. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="http://play333.com/wp-content/plugins/google-sitemap-generator/sitemap.xsl"?><!-- generator="wordpress/3.5" -->

    you might want to run a check with a proper sitemap validation app :p

    http://sitemapinspector.com

    the app will run some checks and if any error is found, you will be able to get a working version of your sitemap free from errors.
    it does also ping all major search engines if the sitemap is ok :)

    It's always good idea to validate your sitemap before notifying the search engines. This way you can catch any errors in a sitemap. There are couple good ones out there but I use http://www.xmlcheck.com. They also have desktop software that can validate remote sitemaps.
