Sony Waved Off PlayStation Mobile Publisher Fee
 
 

Sony has announced to wave off license fee of $99 for PlayStation Mobile development platform. Company is taking initiative to fight back the fast growing Android game market by allowing independent developers for first time.

Sony is now offering users to become its PlayStation mobile publisher for free. Sarah Thomson, Senior Manager for Mobile Content Acquisition, confirmed the news through an official blog post. Right after the announcement, the SDK is available for download to all. After supporting independent developers at GDC, now company has decided to remove the platform license fee completely.

Using this Sony platform, games can be developed for PlayStation Vita and any other certified PlayStation device. The software development kit can be downloaded from Sony site. The games can be uploaded to Sony PlayStation store and using PlayStation Mobile. A specific section is added on website names “Indie Games” to list new genre of games.

Registered PlayStation license holders can download the application from new enhanced Sony website also. It is good chance for freelancers and learners to pace up their learning curve. The following devices can take benefit from this announcement;

  •     Sony’s tablets
  •     Xperia Smartphones
  •     Certain SHARP gadgets
  •     HTC specific handheld devices
  •     Japan’s Fujitsu’s selected sets

Android game market has become matures enough over last few years. A lot of free and paid games are available on Google PlayStore. About more than 95 percent applications are developed by non-Microsoft companies. Sony is late to announce such open development competition but it is never too late to start an innovative. Mobile market for games and application is becoming the main competitor market around the globe now days.

Google and Apple being leaders in operating systems of tablet and smartphones are up with more than 91% market share. Both have heavily crowded iTunes and PlayStore. Other mobile game consoles developing companies like Nintendo has announced to support smartphone apps by developing new layer of code to act as parser. Nintendo’s Wii U console will have built-in support for such apps soon. Game companies Sony, Nintendo and other are facing decline in sales due to emerging smartphone and tablet market.

Sony’s new SDK may give some hope to inline independent developers in this fight of survival. If the effort gives an enormous number of download may add up as a good source of revenue for company. It is a very powerful game development platform. It was having regular subscriptions for game studios and companies. Initially, a huge push of free users will discourage them, but for long run it is good hope.
