Google pulls PlayStation emulator PSX4Droid from Android Market

Xperia wants to play here, go somewhere else

Product: PSX4Droid | Developer: ZodTTD

ZodTTD’s PlayStation emulator was unceremoniously yanked from the Android Market by Google today in a move the developer suspects is partly down to the launch of Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play 'PlayStation Phone'.

PSX4Droid had been available on the Market for almost half a year before it was removed due to, "content violation."

ZodTTD reveals on Twitter that he has been, "working like mad on a psx4droid update," and that Google’s action effectively spells the end of the program for existing customers of the emulator.

ZodTTD believes the takedown was influenced by Sony. "Sony's Xperia Play must be coming soon," he writes.

Despite this sudden takedown, rival emulator fpse remains up and running on the Android Market.

If Sony has indeed leaned on Google, then it’s possible this app will also disappear in the coming days.
