Sony may have begun its recovery following a massive cyberattack, but its bad luck isn’t going to stop there.

At this point we already know that Android Wear watches will run regular Android apps with a bit of simple side-loading — and we’ve already seen devices like the Samsung Gear Live running Game Boy emulators, games like Minecraftand even Windows 95.
