Sony opens PlayStation Suite SDK beta

updated 03:30 pm EDT, Thu April 19, 2012

PlayStation Suite SDK beta now available

Sony has made good on its promise made last month and launched the PlayStation Suite SDK beta for developers. Any interested party can download the software, letting them create software for all PlayStation-certified hardware. This includes the PS Vita console and the Xperia line of phones and tablets.

During the beta, developers can create apps that use physical buttons and the touchscreen using the integrated development environment for the PC simulator, which is included in the SDK. Also part of the SDK is a 2D graphics game engine and 2D physical engine. They can then test and debug their creations, while a forum will allow them to discuss their projects and learn from other developers and Sony Computer Entertainment employees.

When the SDK goes official, Sony will require developers to sign a new contract and pay an annual $99 fee. This will let them sell their apps, however, and is in line with similar fees from companies like Apple and Microsoft.
