    As far as Mobile is concerned, I’m probably not going to buy any games more than 2 bucks.

    I bought Samurai Beatdown for 99 cents (good price) and other than a little slowdown near the end of level one (the only level I’ve played so far) I have no problems. (Using an Xperia Play 4G btw)

    There’s no reason to buy from this store and not just use the Google Play market for Android users.

    I’m playing: Super Crate Box, Aqua Kitty, Tokyo Jungle
    I’m watching: Community
    I’m listening to: The Official PlayStation Blogcast 045: Monsters, Myths, and PlayStation Mobile

    @14: Being able to play on my PS Vita and my Tablet is enough for me. Especially games like Super Crate Box and Aqua Kitty which support the controls on Vita. Plus, some games (Loot the Land) support each device with it’s native resolution.

    Most games I have on my tablet are upscaled games that were on phones. Which sucks.

    So yeah, you don’t have to like it, but it has it’s own draw for me. And I’m sure others.

    More PSone classics: Arkanoid returns, space invaders, asteroids, bubble bobble. These would be great games on the Vita
