A while ago I was fortunate enough to be allowed access to the PlayStation Suite Closed Beta testing. PlayStation Suite is an IDE for developing for PlayStation Certified Devices such as the PSVita.

PSSuite - pretty similar to using XNA in Visual Studio

Today I got an email letting me know that PS Suite had moved on to open beta. I had a very brief look at the closed beta version, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to allocate a great deal of time to it. Just enough to convince myself that should I want to I would be able to use it without too much bother.

With the Open Beta came a promise that after the Open Beta “you can offer developed games and applications to a wide variety of users through the PlayStation®Store” for a fee of $99 dollars a year. This was also covered at a talk at GDC. I didn’t go to that talk, but now I have access to the vault so I can watch it at my leisure.

Watch this space for any significant news!
