Google Prepares For Xperia Play Launch By Removing PSX4Droid

Without giving any reason, Google has pulled off the PSX4Droid PlayStation emulator from its Android Store.

When the program's author, ZodTTD, asked for a reason, Google responded with a generic "We remove apps from Android Market that violate our policies."

The sudden removal of the emulator after it has been available for eight months seems to suggest that it has something to do with the imminent launch of Sony's Xperia Play, a.k.a. the PlayStation Phone.

It is worth noting that other emulators such as SNesoid (SNES), GameBoid (Game Boy) and, interestingly, FPSe (PlayStation) were not affected.

PSX4Droid is available through third party Android app-markets.

A little bit intriguing.! How

A little bit intriguing.! How are we going to use it in that way? Perhaps, we do something like transformation. Things get drive us from being original to unique. The unending challenge of prioritizing the best. Given that thing, this will really affect the world industry because it ca easily makes things go round. Just like the hiring spree of McDonald. Who thought that it will going to happen? Here is the proof: McDonald's hiring spree will produce 50,000 jobs on April 19


sucked anyway. that emulator just plain sucks and doesnt work as well as it used to. FPSe or something to that effect is better


Beauty of the android OS is that it doesnt require to be rooted to download free appz. On the actual Android Market just download Astro File Manager (free of course). On the pc just go to Download the free app and save to the android phone. Use astro to install and bam! u got yourself the underground app market. all the emulators are there for free along with rom finders. Love My HTC EVO, has been playing everything on it flawlessly. Theres a wiimote app that lets u play games with the controller, just need to get my hands on the classic controller to attach to the wiimote and the games will be so much better to handle.
