Sony has announced that the software development kit for its PlayStation Suite will launch in public beta form from this April. The public release follows the closed beta of the SDK, which began in November 2011, and was open to a select few developers in the United States, the UK and Japan.
The kit allows game developers to create titles optimized for PlayStation-certified phones and tablets, like the Xperia Play and Tablet S, as well as Sony's recently-launched PlayStation Vita gaming system (and we'd expect the Vita angle alone to attract a fair few devs).
The public beta will be open to anyone and everyone, free of charge. However, the full version will set devs back $99 annually when it lands later in the year.
We've got the full press release from Sony after the break.
