As Sony Ericsson celebrate the launch of the new Android powered Xperia Play phone with a posh do down in London tonight, PlayStation emulator psx4droid has been unceremoniously pulled from the Android marketplace.
It’s possible the two events are unrelated, of course, but with the new mobile phone ready to go (well, almost) it looks at first glance like Sony are just protecting their assets.
However, the Android’s other PlayStation emulator – fpse – is still on there, at least at the time of writing, suggesting that perhaps it’s the ‘PSX’ bit of ‘psx4droid’ that’s caused the issues here rather than the emulator itself.
Psx4droid was a paid for application, with developer ZodTTD presumably not exactly over the moon at the news.
Good job we didn’t name this website after a bit of Sony tech, eh?
