Sony to release DevKit for dual Playstation and Android development
Sony announced last week that they will release a development kit for their Playstation Suite (PS Suite) for content developers (i.e. gamers or apps developers), in order to allow porting of Playstation apps/games to Android devices.
This SDK will support C# as main programming language, meaning that games or apps developed through the SDK will run on the Playstation Vita, and also PS Certified devices.
Sony already has a couple of Android devices branded as “PS Certified”, in particular the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY smartphone, and the Sony tablets “S” and “P”, so this is a way for Sony to encourage developers to develop for the Sony ecosystem for less effort.
Announced for November, we’ll keep a watchful eye and try to get our hands on the SDK when it is released.
