Google Pulls PSX4Droid For Sony's Xperia Play 140

tlhIngan writes "Google has apparently pulled an Apple and pulled PSX4Droid (a PlayStation emulator) from the Marketplace, citing 'policy violations' for it reason. It's believed that Sony's Xperia Play (aka Playstation Phone) release was behind the move. Strangely, FPSE is still on the Marketplace."

    I have no problems with Google policing the android market, in fact it might be good if they did more of that to prevent rouge apps from appearing there. The key difference between android and iOS is that you can get your apps from other sources than android market so the devs of PSX4Droid can just host the app at some other server and they are in business again.

    The hyperbole in the summary says Google is "pulling an Apple". I disagree. In order 4 that 2 b actually true, google would have had to disable side loading from android. That is the crucial difference. With apple you have no choice other than to jailbreak. With android I can install anything I want whether it is in the market or not as long as it exists. At&t notwithstanding. Pardon the number subsitutions as I dictated this with the voice recognition on my Droid.
