PSX4Droid Brings PlayStation To Your Android Phone—Android Gaming Suddenly Sucks A Lot Less

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

Android Market And Google Checkout Problem – Buy Your Apps/Games But Receive Nothing, Sorry!

Recently it has been reported that Google plans to add carrier billing options to the Android Market. This is great news for developers, but it may be moot, as we’re getting reports that a lot of users are having issues downloading apps that they have purchased. When a user tries to purchase an app, it seems that the market is hanging while authorizing their payment, regardless of their checkout method (credit card or carrier billing).

Now mobile gamers can join in on the fun, as Droid Gamers have announced the first ever Android Gaming Challenge.

The Android Gaming Challenge (or AGC1 for short) will put players against each other in the first ever Android gaming tournament and quite possibly the first ever mobile gaming tournament.

Google May Be Investing In Company Behind Farmville, Android May Be Getting A Whole Lot More Annoying

There have been some reports around the web that Google is investing in Zynga, the company behind popular Facebook game Farmville. We’ve talked about just how miserable the gaming situation is on Android, especially in comparison to other devices, and it’s a good sign that Google recognizes that and is trying to remedy it. Still, I can’t help that feel the company behind a game that’s so love-it-or-hate-it (and annoying) is necessarily the solution.

Gameloft Relaxes DRM Policy, Gives Customers Option To Reinstall Games

Mobile game developer Gameloft recently came under fire for their DRM policy, which claimed that any user who purchased a game could not for any reason re-download it. This included wipes caused by authorized system updates to Android phones.

Needless to say, this angered many Gameloft customers, who paid upwards of $5 for each game. It didn't take long for the outrage to push Gameloft into announcing that it would be reviewing the DRM policy, but no timetable was provided.

The Sorry State Of Gaming On Android, And How OpenFeint May Help

It may not seem like it at first, but gaming on Android is pathetic. While Android certainly has its fair share of good games, there is a long way to go before the state of gaming on the platform can be considered healthy. There are probably a few people up in arms over that statement, so let me qualify it:

A few days ago I wrote an article on a Distimo report comparing various app markets.

Angry Birds, The #1 Selling iPhone Game, On Its Way To Android This Summer

Angry Birds has been a hugely popular iPhone/iPad game, ranking #1 for awhile now. Developed by Rovio, Angry Birds is a great physics game where you shoot various birds out of a sling shot to destroy buildings and defeat the evil green pigs (this sounds awesome, doesn't it?).

Rovio, however, is not satisfied enough to dominate the iPhone Apps Store, so they've now set their eyes on Android, which means this summer we will all get to enjoy flinging birds out of slingshots, all without getting arrested.

Unity3D recently announced that pre-sales are going on for their Android version of their great 3D engine.
