After talking it over a bit (mostly by talking to myself), we've added an Android platform to the site.

Thanks :D Doesn't seem like many sites have gone beyond a smartphone or iphone category so far.

Hmm... I guess that works, even though android is technically an OS. Now that I think about it that's probably a good idea since no android phone is as popular as the iPhone so it's simpler to have Android as the platform rather than listing something like the Droid X or the HTC incredible. Although I do see where you are coming from regarding the time it took to make the decision.

@TheMustacheHero: Since when is it creepy to call another man handsome?  Third post or not, I'm just saying what everyone is thinking.

What about just using "Mobile" for all cell phone games?  Is that to broad?

I still think Steam should be a platform. Marketplace is a platform. I'm sure this argument has been done before.

I agree, but I guess you are technically playing just PC games through steam.

@Malakhii:  Aren't Marketplace games technically XBox games?

And I'm technically playing my Marketplace games through my Xbox 360. Yet, another platform.

I don't think Marketplace should be a platform, wouldn't the 360 be the platform?

Lovely 5491st post, sexy facial hair dude

@hematurge: I would think so. 
 
@Claude: It's weird, but there is probably something about it that separates it that I'm not aware of. Like I said I'm for steam being listed separate, if marketplace is.

Why didn't any inform me of this? Sure I could have found out myself, but I don't frequent Giant Bomb's Android forum!
