Sony details November PlayStation Suite beta
Lucky developers can get their hands on Sony’s PlayStation Suite software development kit in November – but not the Vita part.
Speaking at GDC Online, as reported by Joystiq, Sony Computer Entertainment’s Shigeru Sugimoto said the November “tech preview” will support Android, and feature a PC simulator allowing for testing without an Android device on hand.
This round of testing will be strictly limited, and will move into an open beta at a later date; support for Vita development will be added during this phase.
Sugimoto reiterated that the Suite will eventually support third-party hardware, and revealed that the Suite will later work for PlayStation 3, meaning developers can build content for the entire PlayStation family – tablets, Vita, PS3 – in one piece of software.
