RUMOUR- Vita dev kits being given to indies for free

Posted By | On 01st, Aug. 2011

Indie game developer Rubicon told Develop that Sony has provided them with four early PS Vita dev kits free of charge, so that they could build an upgraded version of the iOS title “Great Little War Game”.

“They’ve just always been so useful in dealing with us,” said Steven Haggerty of the Isle of Wight-based development team, also saying that SOny was “the best” of all platform holders in terms of how they behaved with indy game devs.

“We’ve worked with Apple, and you can’t get anything out of them,” he continued. “Microsoft rarely responds and I suppose Nintendo are okay, but Sony are always there to help. They always get back to you.”

According to rumours, Sony will be providing free dev kits for their handheld to all indie developers, but Sony hasn’t commented on these rumours yet. Stay tuned, we’ll keep you updated.
