Default Google Play Store Not Available for hero?

Hi All,

My daughter recently picked up a HTC Hero, after dropping her phone in water. Her phone is not receiving the Google Play store, while my Moto Photon and her sister's Optimus S both have it.

Is there a trick to making the Hero update to Play store?

Did you find a solution ?
could this be a limitation from the original service provider that sold the phone ?
I initially had a Orange ROM on my Hero and couldn't install some Google apps, had ugly Orange branded widgets etc. (Orange is one of the main service providers in France)
I eventually installed a custom ROM (Villain ROM-Froyo) to get rid of all the Orange custom stuff.
