Think you have what it takes to create your own games? Think that you can only do that on the PC? Then think again. Sony has announced that they will be offering a new Software Development Kit in November for its PlayStation Suite.
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.
I wish that Sony was a little more forthcoming as far as what they mean by the PS Suite, but hopefully we’ll find out more soon. It does sound like tablets might be a part of the PS Suite though, which would be an interesting development. Hopefully these tools will be better than the ones the PS3 and PS2 had.
