While Sony’s trophy system has been reserved only for PS3 and PS Vita efforts thus far, the company reportedly plans on opening up the API to access these features from any PlayStation-certified device, such as mobile phones like the Xperia Play.
And so it begins...
Trophy fiends will never see daylight now that so many games will support trophies.....
Android trophies? Mother of God...
This is decently good.
If you don't like trophies then when a trophy pops up you will be like whatever. If you love trophies and there aren't any maybe you want buy the game. It's easy to see why trophies are the future.
I'll use their dev kit if this is true. ... (sucking up their C# horribleness)
I can see why they went with C#, but C/C++ would have ultimately been the best choice.
C/C++ would have been a heaven send :(. It was noted numerous times that they used C# to restrict full memory access. (damn lack of pointers...)
Haha, yeah, that sucks. If you don't have the whole memory space at your disposal for fine-tuning and low-level access, then effectiveness goes out of the window. They said, however, that they might support C++ later so here's hoping to that. :) The most important thing now is, that it gets as many apps as it can get because that's what people are longing for.
Senior account manager Agostino Simonetta said "That's something we're looking at, it's on the road map. We're looking at a timeline for that," he told Digital Spy at Develop in Brighton." Also: Simonetta added that free games is also something the team can offer over time, with the service only accepting free-to-play games from launch. want to see something else that's cool? remember the PSVita update to allow the PSVita to be used as a game controller for the PS3..there is more reason's why Sony is doing this! read on: PlayStation Mobile could come to PS3, it has been revealed. Head of development services Kish Hirani said that support is "on the cards" provided they can work out a way to replicate touch control on the platform. "All this time we've told you guys, this is your community, this is your platform," he said. "There's no restrictions whatsever about what you can put on there, content-wise, so make it your platform. Just say what [suggestions] you want. If you put down things like, how about using the Move as the touch? That's just one of the ideas. "If it does work, then we'd try and think it up for the market." PlayStation Mobile is an open, cross-platform digital distribution service for PlayStation Certified devices, including Vita and supported Android phones and tablets. http://www.digitalspy.co.uk... official supported PS3 and Playstation Vita, Homebrew and Indie developer platform along with 1st and 3rd party Publishing partner games on the Playstation Mobile platform, that sounds like pretty good idea in my opinion.
I'm using the Playstation Mobile SDK at the moment to develop a game. Will be very interesting to get my hands on this API to see how it all works.
Mind if i ask what your game is about?
No problem. Its a 2d platformer based in an alien world where everything is black and white. And you the player being the only thing in colour. The things you (the player character) interacts with become coloured (to complete puzzles, defeat enemies etc). Right now the working title is Kulur.
Interesting concept, looking forward to seeing it on my vita :D
