It’s been many months since we first heard about this PlayStation SDK, which entered closed beta for a chosen few back in November. Now we’re told the open beta will arrive in April, allowing any interested developer to create content for the PS Suite, which will ultimately be accessible to all PlayStation-certified Android smartphones and tablets as well as the PS Vita. This beta of the SDK will be free of charge, while the official version will come “later this year” and require a $99 annual subscription in return for allowing devs to make their wares commercially available on Sony’s platform. This should herald good times for users too: People still have to go to crazy lengths just to access homebrew on their Sony handheld.
