Does anyone else think that the Vita will be more appealing if it could play apps from the App Store or Android Market (Google Play)? if I could play games like Draw Something or Angry Birds, I would use my Vita instead of my Phone because they burn the battery on my Phone. Anyone else think this is a good idea?
Sure (to an extent.) I think developing some simpler, in expensive, time-killers similar to what's available on smart phones would be cool. I'm sure it could also be slightly profittable (although I cannot say that with certainty as the smart phone app audience is MUCH larger then the Vita audience is.)
But as far as being able to use android or apple apps... nah. I don't see it happening nor do I see why Sony or Apple (maybe Google) would want it to happen.
I don't think Appeal is an issue. The Vita is Hella Appealing People want it plain and simple, I don't think a bunch of casual games will make people want it more especially if they already have access to those games on their phone.
The issue is people don't want to pay for a Vita. They want it cheep or free. (So would i have, i certainly couldn't afford to buy mine. I just happen to have the great fortune to have the system release 5 days before my birthday and so my family pitched in for mine.) The thing about that is, A thing isn't Worth less money simply because you cannot afford it.
Since Vita doesn't run iOS or Android, the apps and games from either of those stores developers would have to be ported over; so it would intale a considerable investment of resources on the developers part to bring the games over
That being said, I would Fully support any efforts to petition these developers to not only port their games over but to tailor them to the Vitas additional beneficial features. The more games available and the more variety of types available the better.
well the whole thing is that yea u can download angry birds from psn anyway!!! but having the cabplities to run andriod games or have the ablity to play any game you purchased from the psn store would be perfect!!!!!
they should try to get the psn sotre games available on every device including phones laptops ps3 psvita even back to the psp and the 2 tablets that they have!!!
but the whole thing is every country has its own laws and regulations
