To a company, not much.

To a gamer.......

mind blown on how much we'd need to save if we ever wanted one. lol

@potedude

Very, but good luck making one on your own and getting a publisher for it ;P

Send one my way, I'll cook up something sweet for the Vita.

How insane would it be if we could create our own games...

You do realize that if you're a start-up business, you could apply for a small business loan at a bank to cover the $3000, right? No one says you have to pay for this in cash.

theonlylolking2348d ago

Unless you want to pay it in cash yourself.

Publishers do not have to get involved if their games are on the PSN.

One of the most critically acclaimed games from E3 was a PS Vita PSN exclusive called "Sound Shapes" (I believe it won two awards from "game critics awards" and probably loads others).

The only worries with digital distribution would be distribution licences and there is always a Sony "pub fund" which I hear would support devs even further. Sony just announced that 20 million would be invested in the PSN ventures so, it is looking like a big upside for indy developers.

Oh and, the development process for the PS Vita has also been quoted as being the easiest out of all the Playstation hardware to date,

Maybe because Ken Katuragi wasn't part of the development process. lol!

This is great news for developers. So far, Sony seems to be doing everything right with the Vita.

Didn't the PSP kits start at $10K?

bozebo2348d ago

Or $0 if you have the means...
