Sony Computer Entertainment announced today that the developer open beta for PlayStation Suite (aka PS Suite) is going to be available to the public starting today free of charge. The aim of PS Suite is to deliver a wide range of content across PlayStation based portable devices including tablets, mobile phones, and the PlayStation Vita. This Developer Program for PS Suite will provide developers with an early version of PlayStation Suite SDK before the official launch later this year.
The open beta version of PS Suite SDK, will allow devs to conduct performance verification of their content on PlayStationVita and other PS Certified devices. The open beta version of PS Suite SDK incorporates a 2D graphics game engine and 2D physical engine, as well as a variety of content samples which utilize these libraries, in order to help developers create content that is optimized for portable devices.
