C# users will be happy to hear it is the language of choice.
No native code, unless "developers scream for it," at which point they will "consider it."

Small mentions of fees. Not quite "open" Sony.
It will still be interesting to see how it plays out. Honorable mention to openemotionstudios. I know they have some stuff on the psn store

So many great tools available to Indie Devs now.

Anyone else find this odd that Sony would make this tech dependent on a Microsoft language?
Or am i reading too much into that.

It’s Mono which is an open source version of the .NET Framework, so is only tied to MS in terms of implementing similar API functionality – they could do their own thing if they wanted – and unlike MS .NET Mono is multi-platform.

Wow didn’t realise it’s Mono, that’s great! Originally I was thinking "Totally pointless" if it were just the MS .net implementation.

iOS and Android too.
Unfortunately you have to pay for those, the standard Mono Framework is free.

A thought crossed my mind today.
Theres a bunch of new sdks and engines available these days like
Ps3, unity, UDK and now this sony Vaio.
Was there ever a ps1 or ps2 sdk?
Think i found the old ps1 sdk

Early European PS2s also came with YABasic on the packed in disc (there was an onscreen keyboard that you navigated with the controller- the hilarity!)
