    Also worth mention is that PSX4Droid (PS1 emulator for android) has been pulled from the Market, most likely due to Sony sucking ***.
  3. I, for one, am done with Sony.

    ..and it's not even Geo anymore; it's their entire approach to customers as a whole.

    How long before someone figures out how to run them on other devices. Although I imagine it will be crude since most or no other android devices have controller hardware. Uhm like d-pad or thub nubs, but I'm sure someone will do something, but it will not be practical for most. So sony wins right... whatever I say. My only issue is that they are putting it on the Android Market and the games are not compatible or sold to other android customers.

    Seriously, I'm f*cking sick of this. What should Sony do then? Do you think their behavior is wrong? Do you think they should give up on everything? Get a f*cking grip, or at least try to justify yourselves.

    These *****s have spread all over the internet. Why don't you say you are done with the iPhone, after they tried to combat jailbreaking? Why don't you say you are done with Microsoft, for banning all those hacked XBL accounts? Why don't you say you are done with Blizzard because they try and stop private servers or cheaters? Why don't you say you are done with Microsoft for trying to stop illegal W7 installations? WHY?!

    Rant over.
  6. hey Omnislip, you're not making sense.
    Playstation is hardware a person owns. What you're doing is comparing software against it. STOP IT!

    as for iPhone - jailbreaking is leagal.

    I think I made complete sense talking about how people should stop complaining at Sony for trying to preserve their profits. What else should you expect?

    I don't really know what you're talking about with this software and hardware thing...
