Good news for developers - and possibly for mobile gamers - with today's announcement from Sony
that they'll be releasing an SDK for the PlayStation Suite (PS Suite) in November.
PS Suite is an initiative solution to deliver the world of PlayStation® to Android™ based portable devices.
Through PS Suite SDK, content developers can create content for PlayStation™Certified (PS Certified) devices, hardware certified through the PS Suite license program, as well as for PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita).
Supporting C# as the programming language, PS Suite SDK can run programs developed in C# on virtual machine equipped on both PS Certified devices and PS Vita. By supporting development for multiple devices and by adopting libraries to create a variety of content not only limited to games, PS Suite SDK will not only help developers save their cost in creating new content but also allow them to efficiently create their content on one SDK and without having to create on several different SDKs.
At the moment, the list of certified hardware includes the Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB’s Xperia PLAY, Sony Corporation’s "Sony Tablet" S, "Sony Tablet" P, but more devices are expected.
At the moment there's no indication of cost for the SDK; there's a footnote that indicates interested parties can "obtain this SDK by signing a license agreement with SCE and by purchasing tool products".
