In a move that has some people scratching their heads, and others suggesting conspiracies, Google has pulled the PSX4Droid PlayStation Emulator from the Android Market, citing "Content Policy violation". It does seem a little suspect considering that Sony is one of Google's mobile partners, and we are soon to get the new Sony Ericsson Xperia Play (PlayStation Phone). When questioned about the issue, Google responded with a simple, "We remove apps from Android Market that violate our policies."
It's important to note that while the developer himself believes that Sony is behind this, others in the industry point a finger at his improper GPL Licensing. Also, another PlayStation emulator, FPSe, is still on the Android Market, so that throws another "logic-wrench" in the conspiracy theory. What do you guys think?
