Sony To Offer Unity Pro For Free To PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 And Vita Developers


Sony Computer Entertainment have partnered with Unity Technologies to offer Unity Pro for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PS Vita to licensed PlayStation developers at no cost, the company announced today.


Unity is a widely-used cross-platform game-creation suite. It is already offered for free alongside Wii U development kits, and will now be available for free to PlayStation-licensed developers as well.


“We are very happy to begin offering Unity for our PlayStation® platforms at no additional cost to developers,” said Teiji Yutaka, Senior Vice President, Division Deputy President, R&D Division of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.


“Some of the most exciting and high quality games are being created in the vibrant indie community. We’re happy to help ensure all developers have the same opportunities to create wonderful new experiences for our powerful PlayStation platforms.”


Some examples of games that use Unity are: Oddworld: New‘N’ Tasty, BroForce, DEEMO and CounterSpy. Naturally, there are many more, as Unity is widely-used by the indie community as a convenient means to develop games across multiple platforms.
