63w ago - Following up on our previous article, today Engadget (linked above) reports that Sony's PlayStation Suite will be open to all developers beginning in April with PS Vita support followed by a full SDK coming afterwards.
The PS Suite SDK will allow licensed developers to create and run performance testing on all PlayStation-certified Android smartphones and tablets as well as the PS Vita.
This SDK Beta will be free of charge, while the official version will come later this year and require a $99 annual subscription in return for allowing devs to make their wares commercially available on Sony's platform.

65w ago - Sony Senior Producer Harvard Bonin has announced that the Starhawk PS3 Beta officially opens to US PSN users today and Europeans tomorrow, with some PlayStation 3 tips available below!
To quote: We're happy to announce (remind) everyone that the Starhawk Multiplayer Beta is open to ALL COMERS today, Tuesday, February 21st only on the PlayStation Network!
You don't have to "like" us on Facebook, you don't have to "accept a special offer" and you don't have to sign up for any service (that is, except for the PlayStation Network free service)! Everyone is welcome to join! Just check the PlayStation Store and prepare yourself for a good time!
In the coming weeks we'll be upgrading the Beta a ton. You can expect a new map, new vehicles, new weapons, 32-player max matches and more. Remember, this is still a beta, not a demo. We are actively finding and fixing problems -- and we need your feedback!
The Starhawk Beta will not last forever. When we're done testing it will go "bye-bye"... and so I wrote a poem to illustrate my point...
The Starhawk Serenade
If you don't try Starhawk you'll be sad,
While your friends are having fun you'll be mad,
It's such an easy download,
Your head may explode!
