Hi all, just signed up here, have been browsing around for a while.

I was thinking that LocoRoco or a LocoRoco like game would be ideal for any phone with a Gyroscope or Accelerometer; of which there are many.
I thought that LocoRoco would be ideal as it would not require any hardkey mapping, as the game, which is originally a PSP title, only uses the L and R keys to tilt the screen left and right. (Which could possibly be duplicated by tilting the phone left and right)

Unfortunately I have no developing skills so I would be useless if it came to helping with the development of it.

I searched to see if there had been any other interest in LocoRoco coming to Android or Windows Mobile, and fair to say there were 1or2 threads dating back to 2008-2009, but neither of which attracted a lot of attention.

Sorry I couldn't add a link to the game, new user restrictions

thanks, andy.

There's a very good chance we'll see PSP games in the Android Market sometime soon

It's just speculation at the moment but rumour is the PSP2 will be a Phone, an Android phone at that, so they can compete better with the DS. It's a solid rumor, gone back ages and the Android link comes from Sony's new relationship with google and... let's face it, It's gonna be a smart phone if it does happen and they're not going to pick Symbian over Android especially after the success of the X10.

I don't think they'd scap their digital distribution they got started with the PSP Go, especially because each "PSP Phone" would have 3G. So it would either be a dedicated market just for PSP games or they would distribute them throughout the Android Market.

Who knows, perhaps the "PSP Phone" isn't a specific handset but them distributing via several on the android market (assumption would be they're locked only to SE phones but I'm sure this could be overcome).
