Sony Computer Entertainment has announced that it will offer software development kits (SDK) for PlayStation Suite (PS Suite) for content developers starting this 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 machines 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. As of September 15th, 2011, PS Certified device line-up includes Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB’s Xperia PLAY, Sony Corporation’s “Sony Tablet” S, “Sony Tablet” P, and SCE will continue to further accelerate the expansion of PS Certified devices in addition to the current hardware line-up.
The detailed information of PS Suite SDK, including how to download, will be announced via a dedicated PS Suite section on SCE’s official website.
