The guys over at the Unity3D blog have announced the official release of Unity for PlayStation Mobile – and it’s free.

For the first time ever anyone in the PlayStation Mobile Developer Program can publish their Unity content to PlayStation Store completely free of charge. There’s no dev kit required, and there are absolutely no additional fees. The PSM build option even works with the free version of Unity and Unity Pro – so developing and deploying your Vita titles is as easy, and integrated as humanly possible.

Hop on over to the Unity3D blog for full release information, as well as options for developers to obtain a copy.

    I don’t know whether there’s a catch or if this ‘free’ copy of Unity is for associated developers or affiliates. FYI Unity does not belong to Sony.

    A month ago, there was a tweet from Unity’s competitor, FuturLab -maker of Velocity for PS Vita- in which they referred to Unity framework’s pricing and performance and I quote:

    Albeit those rumors can only be confirmed by the developers themselves, it’s great to see the Unity Team taking this step to get more devs jumping onboard the Vita ship. I’ll personally make sure this message gets to the most developers I know.
    Oh and don’t forget about #PSVitaDirect! We must keep this trending as long as we can!

      This article is about Unity for PlayStation Mobile, not the full edition of Unity which runs native on Vita…

        “the PSM build option even works with the free version of Unity AND Unity Pro”
        Am I wrong to assume that both versions will be free, inluding the full PRO one?

        • Kyle Wakeling

          Yes, you’re wrong. It’s simply stating that both the free and Pro versions of Unity have gained this new feature.
