Playstation Suite SDK Enters Beta

Sony PS Vita Playstation 3 News Android

The Playstation Suite, announced in January at the Sony event in Tokyo, was created to allow developers to port content for Playstation Certified devices, such as Sony’s own Android devices and the Playstation Vita. The software development kit has now entered beta stage. However, it is a closed beta and only for three countries: Japan, the United States of America and the United Kingdom. Due to the nature of the beta, places will be limited.

The SDK will also support the Playstation 3 and possibly non-Sony Android devices. Despite the fact that the software is now in beta, Sony has not revealed any dates or any indication when there will be a full release of the kit. In a way, this is Sony embracing the growing smartphone and tablet markets while also focusing on the dedicated handheld audience. So, if this is the case and it is successful, can this idea show that both markets can co-exist? Do both need to actually try and destroy each other? Only time will tell.

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!
