We reported in late March that popular PlayStation emulator PSX4Droid had been pulled from the Android Market in an almost Apple-like manner, and now the developer has fired back. ZodTTD has decided to host .apk downloads right on his own website and has also made the app free for anyone to download. In addition, it seems Google has placed some holds and restrictions on his developer account, which is making it difficult for him to put more apps on the Market and profit from others he already has.
This entire episode as a whole has not been good for the Android ecosystem as being free of Apple's arbitrary restrictions on applications in its own AppStore has been one of the incentives to develop apps like emulators for Android. There are legal uses for emulators and the ROMs they run so it makes the issue even more confusing. In the meantime, ZodTTD, might we suggest the Amazon AppStore? [ZodTTD via Engadget]
