Capcom Android Emulator Yanked from Market

Droidgamers.com is reporting today that the Capcom Play System 2 Emu has been yanked from the Android Market.  It seems Capcom had a problem with the Emu, as to exactly what problem they had, that is not clear.

Either way, the dev of the app took the emu down, and is now offering it on his site.  He promises that those few people that were able to download it will receive support and updates as development continues.

As we see more emulators hitting the market, this kind of thing was inevitable.  With the ability for companies to make money off their old catalogs, there really isn’t such a things as abandonware anymore.  We will keep an eye on this story and see if anything else develops.
