Sony has made the turn – the PlayStation Mobile Developer Program is no longer in the woods of beta, and is officially launched as of today. This will include the launch of the official PlayStation Mobile SDK (software development kit), and if you think that you have what it takes to be a developer, why not register as a PSM Developer so that you can come up with your very own fair share of games or apps for PlayStation Mobile? All the content that you develop will be distributed via the PlayStation Store, and as long as you own a $99 PSM Publisher License, you are good to go. Who knows? You could very well end up with a sleeper hit on your hands and retire young.
This initiative bodes well for PlayStation Certified devices which frankly, until now, they have suffered from a dearth of decent apps and games. The Developer Program is currently open in Japan, United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Australia, where it will be followed by a phased roll out in Hong Kong and Taiwan shortly, and additional countries are also in tow.
