Late last year, Grasshopper Manufacture announced that it was teaming up with a number of game development schools in Japan for the Game Campus Festa program. Grashopper would supply the schools with PlayStation Vita development kits, and teams at the school would make games for the system. All of this would be coordinated on Sony's then newly opened Play Commu community site.
this can't be true, they say developers are dropping the Vita
GDC Europe: Studios looking to make games on PSP successor will only have to pay €1,900...o'l wait a min...LMAO
i mean it's so expensive
"The €1,900 price tag is significantly lower than the €20,000 charged for PS2 and PS3 dev kits at launch, and the initial €15,000 fee for a PSP dev kit. Those dev kits saw their prices significantly reduced in 2009"...LMAO
it's so expensive
"There is no cost to join the PS Vita Develop Program,"
"There's just that cost of the dev kit. If you're a small developer, we happy to talk to you about this. It will help if you have a games portfolio. There's no reason we won't speak with smaller studios about joining up."
o'l wait a min...LMAO
The program will be available in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Japan in English, and it will support “Windows XP (32bit)” and “Windows 7 (32/64bit)”.
Since the SDK comes with a PC simulator, purchase of PS Certified devices or PS Vita is not required.
lets see Both Android an iOS Use ARM Cortex chipsets an so does the PSVita.
but yet Sony's PSVita support is being dropped when its SDK is free to start off?
