Sony controlled app portal
I have mixed feelings about this move. On the one hand we get more mobile games which is good, but on the other hand this move is effectively a Sony Playstation portal tax on Android developers. Android already has many games which bypass the need to go through Sony and Android games work on all Android phones, whereas this Sony move means apps only work on phones with this Sony portal app installed on it, which won't be all Android phones. Plus developers can choose what apps they create on Android, whereas with Sony, they are forced to get their apps approved by Sony (for a fee) and so Sony will block (or delay) approval of apps. (Sony in the past has delayed 3rd party games which compete with its own in house developed games, so they will be able to play these same delaying tactics with this phone move).
So this move sounds very much like a way to try to control developers. There is some impressive games coming out on Android phones already, without Sony seeking a way to control and effectively tax developers. So I can't see many developers falling for this extra Sony tax.
