Train2Game News: Sony waiving publishing fee for PlayStation Mobile

PlayStation MobileThis was brought to my attention yesterday and it is amazing news for Train2Game students creating mobile games. Sony have announced they are waiving the publishing fee for PlayStation Mobile.

Those who are developing mobile titles now have a new strong market to publish for, including the hand held Sony device, the PS Vita. The PS Vita has new interesting control functions which opens up a whole new way of thinking of game mechanics using the touch pads on the front and back of the device.

Sony already have a number of popular mobile titles such as Haunt the House: Switch Galaxy and Beats Trellis. A game you are creating can now sit along side these and other great titles.

PS Vita owners can download these games and the new games soon to be arriving from amateur developers from the PlayStation Mobile section of PlayStation Store. Owners of PlayStation certified devices can obtain them through the PlayStation Mobile Store – click here for full instructions.

You can see everything you need to know about PlayStation Mobile on the PlayStation Mobile website which has a key game highlights, a direct link to the Dev Portal, and a link to download the PlayStation Mobile application for Android to your PlayStation certified device.

Sony seem to be strongly embracing the indie market with this and the introduction of an Indie store on the PlayStation 3.

This is a great time to start developing titles and to be a Train2Game student.
