Sony's PS3 and PSP to Get Skinny PSN Applications Store

249w ago - It's been both rumored and in development for quite some time, and now [Register or Login to view links] has confirmed that Sony's PS3 and PSP are indeed getting a 'skinny' PSN applications store.

Skinny consists of an authoring tool and a native client runtime for PS3 and PSP developers.

To quote: "Skinny is "ideal" for "strategy guides, game maps, cheats, training manuals, episodic videos, eBooks and eMagazines" and consists of a web-based editor/authouring tool and a software client for both the PS3 and PSP.

For those of you who aren't familiar with CAMP yet, it's basically a new Sony Computer Entertainment initiative to search for people who live in Japan and have an innovative approach to bring unique games to PS3 and PSP systems.

Before joining Sony Computer Entertainment, I worked on special designs and models for amusement parks, live theaters, and other fun projects.

The idea for Patchwork Heroes came from wanting to make an action game that was sort of like cutting up paper with scissors, and I ended up pairing that with something very dynamic: giant aircraft and battleships!

The basic premise of the game is to use a big saw to cut giant...
