Vita dev kits “going to be very affordable”

Posted By | On 17th, Aug. 2011

PS Vita dev kits will be placed at around €1,900, plus VAT.

“The PS Vita development kit is going to be very affordable,” said  Sony Computer Entertainment’s George Bain, speaking at GDC Europe. “And when I say affordable I mean €1,900 plus VAT.”

Compared to the €20,000 charged for the PS2 and PS3 and €15,000 charged for the PSP, Vita’s development kits are too cheap. Looks like Sony’s going all developer friendly with their new handheld. This definitely will attract a lot of third party support.

“There is no cost to join the PS Vita Develop Program,” Bain added. “There’s just that cost of the dev kit. If you’re a small developer, we happy to talk to you about this. It will help if you have a games portfolio. There’s no reason we won’t speak with smaller studios about joining up.”

Stay tuned for more on Vita.
