Really do you have a link? Im going to do some research on that right away. I applied for the beta to Playstation Suite SDK, but it still looks like the dev kits themselves cost money.

I saw allot of articles about it, but nothing on how exactly to get one. You may have to contact sony themselves.

I imagine the dev kit would be quite expensive.  Normally a dev kit comes with some software discs, a manual on how to make your games for the system, maybe a few other manuals, and a debug version of the console, along with (at least in a couple cases) a special cable to plug it into a computer for easy program access.  I would expect at least $500-$700 because of the software.

But to this whole thread...and I know this is crazy...why not just use the PS3 controller keyboard?  I have one.  Works great.  Clips onto my controller.

Just send your messages via the msg app. I feel it way more convenient since you don't have to pull up the XMB. More like a "secondary screen" for communication. I've done this while playing CoD. Instead of waiting for the XMB to load right when the map is loading I just simply type my msg on my Vita and send it before the game starts.

 

Anyway, the use of the Vita's screen as a PS3 keyboard seems like a good idea, but can't you just buy the dang keyboard for it? lol
