Handheld focused developers now have a reason to start celebrating: the PS Vita has now been hailed as the easiest PS platform to develop for. Studio Liverpool director Stuart Tilley started the praise, claiming the Vita helped make Wipeout 2048 an easy process.
In an interview with magazine Edge, Tilley claimed the forthcoming handheld has surpassed the PS3 and PDP in ease of programming and developing. In stark contrast to the extreme learning curve of the PS3’s initial dev tools, the kits for the Vita are not only a breeze but beautifully inexpensive.
“The guys have given us a really good set of tools, allowing us to get up and running a lot quicker than we have previously, which is really good. We had a smaller team at the back end of last year that got working straight away on the game stuff rather than too much of the underlying tech, which allows us to really start getting the game in your hands as soon as possible.”
Tilley said. Of course, no word on any release date for Studio Liverpool’s game or the Vita could be mentioned, but the sentiments should appeal to all devs. It’s also nice to know that this could mean dozens of new games for the Vita simply because the platform poses no immediate crushing flaws.
