“Unity for PSM” Allows a Broader Range of Developers to Create Dedicated Content For PlayStation®Vita
Tokyo, June 20, 2014 – Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) today announced that the official version of "Unity for PlayStation®Mobile" (Unity for PSM) will be available starting today.
"Unity for PSM" is a fully integrated solution of "Unity" from Unity Technologies, and is optimized for the creation of PSM content for PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita) and PlayStation®TV (PS TV)*1. The official version of "Unity for PSM" removes the need for extensive re-coding, allowing developers to easily port their games created for iPhone, iPad, and Android™ based devices to launch on PSM. This opens up the PS Vita platform to a broader range of mobile developers and will help fuel the expansion of the gaming lineup for both the PS Vita and PS TV systems.
Additionally, "Unity for PSM" makes it easier for developers to create games that incorporate unique features of the PS Vita system, such as its dual analog sticks and the rear touchpad.
The "PSM Developer Program," which is aimed at providing support to developers creating dedicated content for PSM, has expanded to a total of 32 countries and regions. This program allows developers to distribute their content easily through PlayStation®Store to PSM users worldwide.

SCE will continue to collaborate with content developers to deliver compelling entertainment experiences only available on PlayStation® through PSM.
*1 "PlayStation®Vita TV" is supported in Japan and other Asian regions, instead of PS TV.
