Early Access Games Coming To Android Phones

At its I/O 2016 show earlier in the week, Google slipped in some news that Play Store apps — with special focus on games — will now have a section in the store called "Google Play Early Access", which works pretty much exactly the same as Steam's Early Access. It's designed for apps "that are available only as open betas and aren't in production", and anyone wanting to take part can opt-in directly from the Play Store, instead of having to go to Google+ page listings like some kind of mobile masochist.

You can see in Google's image up top how it looks, with the "games in development" section highlighted.



    Why do they see early access a success when its full of unfinished, incomplete and incompotent work, with con artists hiding in the shadows to abuse and exploit customers... only for a few diamond in the roughes shine so brightly.

    Dont judge early access by the successes, judge it for the failures and ripped off customers it leaves in the wake.
