are thrilled to announce a partnership with SCEA that will see Unity tools developed for PlayStation platforms!
We'll be making games built on Unity deployable to PS4, PS3, PS Vita, PS Mobile, and SCE's future cloud services.
So what is Unity? Well, it's only the most widely used game creation toolset and engine in the world. It's so popular because it's based on the idea of democratizing game development. That means making as many awesome and powerful tools available to as many developers as possible, regardless of how big or small their company or team.
Unity is elegant, efficient, approachable, extensible, and affordable. Unity makes it easy to iterate and Unity does the heavy lifting when porting games to other platforms.
Code is automatically converted, and just polish and optimization for that specific platform needs to be added. But all the other stuff - the art, the game logic, artificial intelligence, sound - everything else, remains the same.
Plenty of huge publishers like EA, Ubisoft, Kabam, Square Enix, and Nexon are using Unity...
