The only scrap of information we have to go on here is the number of downloads PS1 games are clocking up on the Android Market, which apparently barely break the “low hundreds”. And while that can easily be blamed on the wide variety of other devices nostalgics can and indeed do buy PS1 games on, we’re still a bit skeptical, mostly because we’ve had a look around Dungeon Defenders Second Wave ourselves and couldn’t find someone to get one solitary game of Xperia-exclusive PvP going with.
“I think there’s also an awareness thing for people that are getting their hands on the device and where they are choosing to purchase games. There’s only a few, at the minute, PlayStation One titles there, and there’s more coming on a regular basis, and there’s the whole PlayStation as a content provider exclusive to the device, the story about that, that will emerge and people will see,” says Sony Ericsson’s Dominic Neil-Dwyer. So people aren’t buying games for your platform because they want more games to buy for your platform. Sounds about right.
