It’s been more than a month since Sony released the PlayStation Mobile and the Japanese company claims it was overwhelmed by positive feedback from both developers and users.

This probably made Sony bring more popular titles to PlayStation-Certified smartphones and tablets and the good news doesn’t stop here.

The company has just announced the launch of the PlayStation Mobile Developer Program, which is expected to provide a suitable and open environment for content developers to create and release their work on PlayStation Mobile.

All tools needed by developers in order to start working on PlayStation Mobile and provided by Sony, can be found on the Dev Portal.

Along with the official announcement of the program, Sony also released the official version of the PlayStation Mobile SDK, which is now available for download through the online portal.

However, developers are required to sign the PlayStation license agreement and pay $100/€80, so they can publish PlayStation Mobile titles for one year.

There’s no limit to the number of titles a developer can publish during the one-year license, so they can basically launch an unlimited amount of games on the market.

According to Sony, the company received positive feedback from top developers using the PlayStation Mobile SDK to create titles for the platform.

In this regard, Rami Ismail of Vlambeer, the creators of Super Crate Box, said “Our experiences with PlayStation Mobile have been positive. There’s always a sense of reluctance going into a project working with forces larger than you can control, but the time we worked with Sony has been great. Not only were all aspects of our cooperation professional and on equal footing, we also had access to a great developer support team and technical support for the PlayStation Mobile SDK. We were impressed.”
