Traditionally PSN has had a large barrier to entry (as in it costs several thousand dollars to publish a game). I would love to be able to publish to the play station if I could.

It seems to have potential... some kind of native export would be cool ..

Official SDKs are way out of indie's league. No one outside the gaming industry will access them.

@eyeliner, this is new, Sony is actually creating a App store similar to Apple.

They have released the SDK and enable you to develop for Vita and other Ps3 certified systems (tablets and such from sony).

Oh, I stand corrected, then. I apologize for my erroneous conclusion.
Good to see this move, now only Nintendo is lagging behind.
Sounds great. I'd like to give it a spin, but I have no Sony devices to test on. I guess I'll give it a spin on the emulator.eyeliner2012-04-23 19:46:33

Um... every SDK and editors are Ok, BUT what about publishing for indie developers?

Im curious too. Generally console publishing is expensive. An XBLA game will cost about 750k to make. mammoth2012-04-24 13:41:37

99$ buys you a publishing license. Did you read the license and the deal? It's there in plain sight.

Pay 99$ when the beta is over and you can publish games. Where's the doubt in that? What's the mystery?

XBLA games are not indie games, they are two different areas. Better for you to read a bit about it. Don't go mixing the two together.

And it's great that the choice was using C# as the programming language. I am studying it. This works with the PSP. I just might get a second-hand one for it.eyeliner2012-04-24 15:14:17
