ZodTTD and yongzh have released Android’s first PlayStation emulator application, now available in the Android Market for $6.99USD. Remember, that $6.99 does not get you any games or a working BIOS (required to run the emulator), you have to “legally” obtain these on your own time (please do not post links to ROMs or BIOS images in comments, they will be deleted).
But words don’t really do this justice, hit the jump for some sexy video:
Ridge Racer, Final Fantasy, Earthworm Jim, and Warcraft on Galaxy S
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon games for PlayStation, XBox and PC are hugely, hugely popular. The new title in the series, Ghost Recon Wildlands, is due to be released on March 7. To tie in with this, a companion app, Ghost Recon Wildlands HQ, has been released by Ubisoft on Android.
The main game's storyline revolves around the ghosts being inserted into Bolivia to destroy a powerful drug cartel and discover the connections between the cartel and the Bolivian government. Once it's released in just over a month's time, the app will sync up and show real time intelligence information and other useful items.
It's great when we see games that have been on consoles arrive on Android, especially ones as fun as Xenoraid. The side-scrolling shoot-em-up has been available on Steam, PlayStation 4, XBox One, and Playstation Vita for a while now, but has just made its way onto Google Play.
Rockstar's 'Bully' was originally released in 2006 for the PlayStation 2, centered around 15 year-old Jimmy Hopkins as he tries to rise through the ranks of the corrupt Bullworth Academy prep school. It generally received good reviews, and two years later, the Scholarship Edition was released for the Wii, Xbox 360, and PC.
Ten years after the game's original release, Rockstar has partnered with War Drum Studios to release Bully: Anniversary Edition for Android and iOS. War Drum Studios has been responsible for every Rockstar mobile port, including the Grand Theft Auto titles, so you know this isn't a shoddy re-release.
Perhaps you haven't noticed yet, but virtual reality is kind of a big deal. Samsung has holiday-themed ads running on primetime TV and sports, the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift are breaking new ground in a stale gaming industry, and even Google is pushing its new Daydream platform hard. The powers that be think there's money to be made, and that means they're willing to work together (at least to some degree) in pursuit of it. Hence the creation of the Global Virtual Reality Association, announced by Samsung on its corporate blog.
For the uninitiated, the Home Run Derby is an annual competition for Major League Baseball players celebrating the sport's most explosive play. The MLB already publishes an official game based on the yearly contest, a full 3D affair with licensed player likenesses and $100 in-app purchases, for Android phones and tablets. But it looks like they've decided to join the early ranks of developers officially supporting the Daydream VR system.
Most of the deals we've dug up for Black Friday have been for phones and other electronics - tangible goods. For those looking for something a little less corporeal, there's currently a very rare discount available on Dropbox storage. Dell's online storefront has a year of Dropbox Pro storage going for $59.99, which is $40 less than the usual charge for one terabyte of backup space. If that's not enough to get your attention, Dell will throw in $25 in gift card credit for its store for free.
