Playstation Suite SDK Available in November

TGS 2011 Sony PS Vita News Android

Remember Sony announcing Playstation Suite earlier this year? Well, here is a bit of news from them. During today’s session of the Tokyo Game Show, Sony revealed that the Software Development Kit (or SDK) will be available this November. Named “Playstation Suite SDK”, this will allow developers to create Playstation quality games to Android powered devices as well as the Playstation 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.

Through PS Suite SDK, SCE will provide to game developers and publishers the potential to further expand their business opportunities to Android based portable devices. In addition, SCE can approach to a wider range of content developers, non-gaming developers and individual programmers. The detailed information of PS Suite SDK, including how to download, will be announced via a dedicated PS Suite section on SCE’s official website. As of right now, the PS Certified devices list is quite small and are only Sony devices: Sony Ericsson’s Xperia PLAY, “Sony Tablet” S, “Sony Tablet” P and the Playstation Vita.

To kick things off, the Playstation Store will be launched for Android at the end of October. Japan, United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Australia will be the first nine countries to receive the service, however, the service will extend beyond the first nine. At first, only Playstation One games will be available, but by next spring, Sony will enhance the PS Store for PS Certified devices and provide content created by the PS Suite SDK.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
