Sony Computer Entertainment just announced that it will offer software development kits (SDK) for PlayStation ® Suite, called “PlayStation® Suite SDK”. Planned for this November, the PlayStation® Suite SDK will allow you to create content and certify hardware for PlayStation® Certified devices. Developer World sees this as a great tool to support you as a game developer, whether you’re a beginner or expert programmer.

The PlayStation® Suite SDK supports C# as the programming language, and can run programs developed in C# on virtual machines equipped on both PlayStation® Certified devices and PlayStation® Vita. This demonstrates a obvious benefit to using the SDK – you are supporting development for multiple devices, you are creating certified hardware, and you are utilizing libraries to create new content that is not just limited to the Xperia™ PLAY, but to the entire suite of PlayStation® Certified devices, instead of relying of several different SDKs.
Another benefit that Sony Computer Entertainment is providing through the PlayStation® Suite SDK is helping you to further expand your business opportunities (as a developer or a publisher) to Android™-based portable devices. Detailed information of the PlayStation® Suite SDK, including how to download, will be announced through a dedicated PlayStation® Suite section on Sony Computer Entertainment’s official website.
In addition, by this October, Sony Computer Entertainment plans to provide content and service for PlayStation® Certified devices through the PlayStation® Store on PlayStation® Network, starting with original PlayStation® One games.
