SCE today released the open beta version of PS Suite SDK (free of charge) through Developer Program for PS Suite (Open Beta). With the open beta version of PS Suite SDK, developers can conduct performance verification of their content on PlayStation Vita (PS Vita) in addition to 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.
SCE will also release the official version of PS Suite SDK along with the official launch of Developer Program for PlayStation Suite later this year. The official development program will allow developers to distribute their content through PlayStation Store on a commercial basis, after completing the license agreement with SCE ($99 US annually).
