Google Over the weekend, Yong Zhang (yongzh), developer of emulators for old gaming systems on Android, has seen his developer revoked and all applications removed from the Android Market. While locally installed applications remain on user's device this time, they obviously cannot be updated or reinstalled by users who have legally purchased them. No warning or explanation has been sent, but the app and account removal is most likely the result of a complaint from one of the companies who own the right to those systems, as a complaint from Sega last month resulted in a couple of emulators getting removed already.

Then they should get off their lazy, fat asses and do it already.

If Nintendo released Pokemon ports on Android (at prices comparable to the average android game), I wouldn't think twice about it and just buy one. As it stands, I prefer my phone to my GBA for casual gaming, so I use Gameboid.
