Can you sideload the google play app ?

    I've got a Coby MID9742 tablet (Android 4.0.3) that doesn't have google play installed. I see in other posts that people are installing custom roms to get the google play app installed. Isn't google play just another app ? Why can't I just copy the googleplay.apk (or whatever it's called) into the /system/app directory ?
