    PS Vita Unity support bringing mobile games to Sony's handheld

    http://www.psu.com/a022992/PS-Vita-U...gram-expanding

    Sony has issued a press release with new details regarding the development platform Unity. This summer, Sony will have a public preview of Unity for PlayStation Mobile. The press release highlights that Unity for PSM will be "optimized for the creation of PSM content."Expansion is also on the horizon. Sony states that "the 'PlayStation®Mobile Developer Program' will expand to an additional 12 countries, and PlayStation®Store (PS Store) for PSM will launch in four new countries. With these expansions, SCE will offer support to a wider range of developers in a total of 32 countries and regions, and deliver new PSM content for PS Vita in 22 countries."
    It seems that Sony is hoping that the expansion of Unity will bring a wealth of titles to the PlayStation Vita and mobile devices. This may cause some caution with Vita owners who are looking for high-profile titles. On the other hand, a bigger, more diverse developer base could bring about the next indie hit that could move Vitas off the shelves.
    Sony is also sticking with their indie developer push by attempting to make Unity for PSM an intuitive process for no extra costs.
    "Developers will be able to create PSM content by utilizing 'Unity for PSM' without having to pay any extra charges if they already own licenses for the free version of "Unity" or "Unity Pro," which provide a full professional suite of tools and rendering power. The official "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 and deliver their content to PS Vita users worldwide."
    So again, this may not bring on the heavy hitter title Vita owners are looking for, but some of the best mobile games could make their way to Vita. There are a solid number of iPad- and iPhone-exclusive games that are very good, and Unity for PSM could hypothetically give those developers more exposure and revenue to create games from the ground up for Sony consoles.
    With the news of Sony prepping for a big Unity push this summer, are you excited to see what comes of it? Or does this news give you even less hope for the PS Vita?

    Being a FPS nut I wouldn't mind a Modern Combat dual analogue sticks and all that would work well.
    Only did so much on the phone until the whole no buttons thing pissed me off

    Yeah, I'm sure this is welcome news to devs like Gameloft. Maybe we will start seeing some apps worth while as well.

    That'd be fantastic as the vita has been lacking in that department.

    Too right, the latest Asphalt game is pretty decent too!

    Good news, I must admit I'm not big on mobile gaming but hopefully it will help shift Vita's off the shelf!

    Not a mobile gamer either, but if they brought over some of the games and added physical controls rather than just use the same touch screen crap that I hate then I'd probably check out a few of them.

    I can imagine some games working better with buttons and analogues, hopefully that's what they'll do anyway and not just use the vitas touch screen.
