Sony launches PlayStation Suite SDK on open beta

PanARMENIAN.Net - Sony has launched its PlayStation Suite SDK on open beta, Engadget reports.

Machinations have continued since November behind closed beta doors, but the free SDK is now available for anyone to download. Developers will be able to make content accessible for all PlayStation-certified devices, from the PS Vita to Sony's batch of Android phones and tablets.

The official version is still pegged for launch later in 2012 and will demand an annual subscription for access.

During the open beta, users can create games that use both physical buttons and touchscreen input with a PC-based simulator, test and debug those creations on willing Sony devices and debate away in the dedicated developer forum. Those with lofty game-making dreams for the PlayStation Suite can download the open beta at the source link below, but expect to sign a new contract when the full SDK goes official.
