PlayStation Furthers Indie Love With GameMaker, MonoGame And Unity Support

Sony has just announced that it has partnered with Yoyo Games, the company behind GameMaker Studio, and Monogames to offer native support for developers who have used or do use these tools to create games, which means it will be a lot easier to transfer games over to the PS4, PS3 and the Vita. Unity support is also now fully available on the PS3 and the Vita, while an early access version will come for the PS4 in April.

The native solution for GameMaker Studio will be available for free for all developers that have SCE licenses. As well as the announcement for support of these three platforms Sony also revealed that its own Authoring Tools Framework, used in the development of The Last Of Us, will also be available for free through Github.

What does this mean for you as a gamer though? With the announcement this means developers have a lot more control on bringing games to Sony’s consoles, making the process easier, offering better support, and as a result more games for the PS4, PS3 and Vita. It’s a big move so expect a whole host of titles to be announced for the consoles over the coming weeks as developers take advantage of this deal.
