Open beta for the PlayStation Suite SDK has begun, Sony announced today.

The Developer Program for PlayStation Suite is now available to the public, giving developers a more streamlined development environment for creating content for portable devices like the PlayStation Vita, Xperia Play, and other PlayStation-certified devices.

The open beta version of the PS Suite SDK will allow developers to conduct performance verification of their content on the PS Vita in addition to other certified devices. It incorporates a 2D graphics game engine and 2D physical engine, as well as a variety of content samples which utilize these libraries, "in order to help developers create content that is optimized for portable devices."

The official version of PS Suite SDK will launch along with the Developer Program for PlayStation Suite later this year. This will allow developers to distribute their content through PlayStation Store on a commercial basis, after completing the license agreement with SCE.
