PlayStation Suite In Open Beta, Developers Rejoice

The PlayStation Suite has enterted the open beta phase, allowing developers to create and test games for PS Vita and compatible Android devices using a single program. The SDK is currently free to download and use, though once the beta's over, developers will need to sign a contract to agree to distribute games and apps through the PlayStation Store.

Make no mistake: this is a seriously big deal. Indie development is becoming more important with each passing year, and Sony has repeatedly stated their interest in muscling into the arena. Now that developers can use a single suite to create games for multiple Sony devices, we could well see a mobile independent revolution - and potentially see many disgruntled Xbox Live Indie developers decide to jump ship. Plus, hell, the Vita could do with some more games. For now, we'll wait and see.
