$99.00 a year to make official homebrew for the PSVita, not bad an there's profit shareing for the developers. sounds good to me.

The economic and bureaucratic things behind making a lucrative PSS app is still quite vague.

$99 USD a year really is not much (considering iOS has the same price for its license). The question is, what other costs are involved in submitting and getting an app approved for the PSS? What are the fees for setting up PSN network connected software for stuff like DLC and patches? What other devices will have "Playstation Certification"? etc.

Still quite nice to have the open beta accompany PS VITA debug testing. A developer who shares his/her code could basically allow anyone with a VITA to just test their game out (in a very homebrew fashion). Nice.
