yea, they would probably just use the brand as a trojan horse for something else, like they did with Spyro. And also have it there to have an excuse if it fails. If Skylanders failed they would have blamed it on the Spyro name and say there wasnt any desire for a new one. But since it succeeded, Spyro has all but been removed from the game.
And they dont even have to support every device, just Tablets. And, compared to the phone landscape, tablets are running on much similar hardware to each other. Its pretty much just Tegra and Snapdragon and are similar in mostly every other spec, not the varying hardware that each phone has.
And yea, it worked on my Nexus 10 on 4.3, but the instant i got 4.4 it crashes right when it opens, on that and Nexus 7(2013). And same, its the only app that doesnt work on 4.4.
They need to add PS4 Second Screen support. Their Companion app doesnt work on KitKat (plus a lot of devices on other android versions), and the native Second Screen app on Vita/PS App doesnt work, which is ridiculous.
