Android: Google goes to war against emulators

Google recently withdrew its Android Market on different emulators, which allow these programs to find the games for years 90 and 80 on his phone inside. According to the developers concerned, the withdrawals were made ​​without warning from Google, and on behalf of the developers in question have been removed.

These are several emulators for NES, SNES, Nintendo 64, Sega Genesis or Game Boy that are affected by this sudden decision. It seems to be following a complaint filed a few weeks ago by Sega, and on two emulators that have been removed in the process. Today, it seems that Google, which did not express on the subject, wants to avoid further complaints and therefore takes the lead in removing all the emulators its online store.

The developer Yongzhi, who is responsible for most emulators removed this week, said his side as his account on the Android Marlet was deleted without warning from Google. While awaiting possible explanations, he has moved all of his work to an alternative platform called SlideME. A case that is reminiscent of the many slip on Apple's AppStore.
