Sony has opened the PlayStation Suite for developers who wish to port their games on to the PS Vita.
At the moment it is an open beta, and just for those who code on a PC, but devs can essentially use the software development kit to spec out their games on the PS Vita format and test them to make sure they are working properly on the console.
Once the open beta has ended then the games can be offered to PS Vita users through the PlayStation Store.
"You can develop games and applications that utilise physical buttons and touchscreen by using the integrated development environment (IDE) and simulator for the PC which are both included in the PlayStation Suite SDK," explains Sony's site.
"In the Developers Forum, you can discuss issues and exchange information with developers throughout the world. Of course, you can also interact with SCE employees, who will participate in discussions and offer development support."
