Sony is Finally Reaching Out to Indie Developers

Sony is finally taking the initiative to reach out to the indie community. I’m amazed that its taken this long for them to realize that the indie community is one of the few reason Microsoft’s XBL, is still able to thrive now.  The “PlayStation Suite” is geared toward game and app creation across Sony’s many platforms, unfortunately no games or apps will be available for distribution until sometime next year.  Basically right now you have access to a beta program for free, and next year you can purchase the SDK for $99 (yearly) and publish your game/apps.

This is a sweet deal. This will give everyone a chance to become familiar with the software for free, and should they wish to publish a game/app they’ll be able to quickly. I’m glad to see Sony taking some form of initiative to be prepared for the next generation.
