Android Apps on the PS Vita!!!!!

34 Replies 31,227 Views Created 05-08-2012

To Sony Playstation,

 

If you really want to kill off the competition, and i dont just mean Nintendo 3DS (and i ain't no fanboy or troll because unlike them, I have a brain), maybe even tablets in terms of the gaming (possible with the processing power of the vita) and other portable devices, and to show that the vita is a dedicated handheld gaming device, just put in Android apps like you do to your phones and you would sell a lot of vitas.

 

I, and other vita owners would really appreciate this.

 

Thank You,

SuperHak_786

 

P.S. Drop the price of the proprietary memory cards, not the price of the vita at gamescom. The memory cards are way too expensive and are basically what is killing the vita. All my friends are willing to buy vitas themselves because they know how stunningly beautiful and powerful this device is, but are being put off by the price of the memory cards. Also allow us to delete old save loads from vita games off the memory cards in order to save up some memory instead of having to buy extra memory cards. As mentioned above, I, and other vita owners would really appreciate this.

This will not happen due to the fact its a different os to andriod and android games are ok in small doses but isnt what people really want in a portable gaming device, they want a console experiance on the go rather than mini game.

 Also why would they use android when they have playstation suite/mobile and are planning to use that with the vita in the future(i think i read that somewhere, if not then this is still more likely than android)

Android games will be converted to PSS (playstation suite) buy their developer IF the developer wants to.

Current plans for PSS titles are trial games, where you download the full game but have the most of it locked out. You then PAY to unlock the full game. There are plenty of Cross platform developers with the PSS SDK as its FREE to download..

 

PSS games WILL NOT be free to the public, currently, Sony will FIX the Prices to Recover PSS developement costs.

 

Android titles can be ported IF the developer puts the TIME in on the game.

Sony will continue embrace Android market as the Home entertainment division are incharge of that not SCEE. There phones and tablets and HDTVs all rely on android market to supply the content for there devices.

I see it very difficult to happen... Different interests and maybe not the objective of Sony....

 

But it worth to try!

What they really need is all the good apps ported to ps mobile starting with a decent browser I can't stand netfront and have no clue why they keep using it. They should really be offering big incentives to get apps similar to smartphone ones and aiming to kill the iPod Touch market.

The Vita is not a tablet it is a dedicated gaming device

 

Android be it phone or tablet is a jack of all trades and a maser of none.

 

If you want a jack of all trades buy a Nexus 7 which has Android apps

 

If you want a dedicated gaming device which has some apps buy a Vita.

 

Last thing we need on th Vita is the 10 bob crap from the Android store!

Considering that some of the best android games (and with tremendous hardware requirements) are:
Bard's tale
Horn
Dead Space
Wildblood
N.O.V.A. collection
Dungeon Hunter
Mass Effect

among others, it would be great if we could just go to play store on our ps vita and download the games already payed.

piece of the advice, playstation suite is quite nice, but stop the policy of making people pay for stuff they already bought.

many android games feels like a step backwards to the days of c64 and sepcy and would suerly not be good for a handheld thats trying to take portable gaming a step foreward.

 

only release quality gaming content and not every quick thrill joy ride mobile game that dies a death after 15mins of play time. ive got a smartphone for these naff games ... not on my vita thanks!

 

Dead space and Mass effect would be amazing for sure.

We NEED vita games no cheap android games.

 

Played most of those you have listed on a friends android when he was showing off and they are poor compared to their console counter parts.

 

Again the Vita is not a android or a jack off all trades you want those type of poor console counter parts buy a android device.

 

I bought the Vita for a full gameing experience not to have some poor console counter part games.

 

Dead sapce and some of the others would be nice but a full on Vita version and not the poor android version

Android market has GTA 3 and Vice City. Not to mention the Vita's library isn't big enough at the moment to keep many people passified. I'de gladly welcom the android market to Vita.

The major problem with Android - and this applies to both games and apps - is the dreaded compatability factor. All you need to do is take a look at any of the thousands of apps listed in the Google Play store and the comments posted by customers and you'll find device-specific issues with not a few but most titles and this will no doubt happen with the Vita as well.

 

It's not just small developers this happens with, but all the larger Android publishers. Because of all the hardware variations Android publishers have to work with, there's no guarantees that a game or app will work perfectly on every device so it's more trouble than it's worth.


We've got two Android tablets and until recently four Android phones in the house and there was never a single app or game that worked perfectly on all of them. I even had to delete Jetpack Joyride from my phone because it was bugged as hell even though exactly the same game works fine on the tablets.

 

Seriously, we're better off without Android and if we do want apps like this, I'd rather see them developed through Playstation Mobile but for that to happen we need to get behind all the PS Mobile developers with the games they are releasing right now.

actually vita has limited apps its listed in 8th gen gaming consul so Sony should provide good apps for ps vita system, if u c there is no online chat enable on ps vita facebook app skype canot correctly show online contacts and unable to send massages through it, other companies are not ingested in app decamping so, sony should sport android apps in ps vita, new generation want more then a gaming device!

It is typical of you not to agree to put android on the PS Vita because all Sony cares about is profit! thats why you put a special SD card slot to leach money of buyers. I have heared rumors of the PS4 games only being downloadable so you can set the price. If that is true it is not going to win you customers and you need to learn to take in what your customers want!

 

You may as well put Android on the PS Vita as that is what your customers want! it has nothing to do with what you think people want. It is fact that Android is way more popular than PS Vita and for a few reasons IT IS CUSTAMISEABLE! IT HAS WAY BETTER APPS AND GAMES! IT HAS MORE APPS AND GAMES! 

 

I mean people WANT Android as an additional addon i mean thats why the Droid x360 was made and why people ave developed VitAndroid a Android hack for PS Vita.

 

Unles you want to move down on the list of best handheld devices you need to take note from what your customers want! And what they want is Android And cheaper SD cards i mean Android is the most popular OS in the world it would be good if you could make a Vita with dual load options so you can load into Android or the current Os

 

Ther is a very high possability of you losing money as people develop Fake cheaper SD cards, Android copies of the vita like the Droid x360 and homebrews of Android like the VitAndroid

 

SO LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMERS AND LEARN FROM THEM! THEY ARE THE ONES THAT ARE GOING TO MAKE YOU MONEY NOT SOME RUBBISH SONY OFICIAL KNOW-IT- ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
