Sony Releases Developer Tools for Hardware-independent PlayStation Games

3 replies 15 views Edited Apr 25, 2012

Sony has released a set of programming tools for its PlayStation Suite, a new push to expand the PlayStation platform beyond the company's own gaming consoles, the electronics firm's game division said Thursday.

Sony Computer Entertainment will "certify" devices made by outside manufacturers as compatible with the PlayStation Suite, then allow PlayStation games to be purchased and played on them. The suite is a departure from a long-held tenet of the video game industry -- that hardware makers such as Sony build and control their gaming platforms, which software developers then target with game titles.

The beta version of the developer program provides access to a software development kit to the general public. The software kit includes a set of graphics and gaming libraries, a simulator for PCs, and the ability to test games on the PlayStation Vita handheld and other devices.

Except this is old news. We've known about Playstation Suite since last year.
