Sony’s announced that it will offer software development kits (SDK) for PlayStation Suite for content developers starting this November.
PS Suite, allows developers to create content for PlayStation Certified devices, such as the new Sony Tablets, Sony Ericsson’s Android based mobile and 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.
As of September 15th, 2011, PS Certified device line-up includes Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB’s Xperia PLAY, Sony Corporation’s “Sony Tablet” S and the “Sony Tablet” P.
In addition to the above, SCE will be providing a variety of content towards these PS Certified devices from end October through PlayStation Store on PlayStation Network, starting with original PlayStation games. The service will start in nine countries including Japan, United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Australia and with more countries to follow.
In next spring, SCE will enhance the PS Store for PS Certified devices and provide content created by PS Suite SDK.
