The widely used game creation suite will be made available free for game developers creating for Vita, PS3 and PS4.
Back in March it was announced that PlayStation Mobile developers could use Unity for Free. But now it has been revealed via the Unity3D blog, that all licensed PlayStation developers can now receive Unity Pro completely FREE. The Unity Store lists Unity Pro as normally costing up to $1,500 a month.
This is great news for Vita players and developers alike, and will keep a good variety of high quality games coming to our favourite handheld. Unity is a popular platform amongst indie developers, with games such as CounterSpy, Stick it to the man!, OddWorld: New ‘N’ Tasty and the upcoming Volume all being created using the software.
Deals similar to this have already been made with the two other big names in Video Gaming. Unity is the default development kit for the Nintendos Wii U and a similar deal was struck between Microsoft and Unity back in February for the development of games for Windows.
Unity Pro can be used to create 3D or 2D applications, and we wait and see what his agreement means for upcoming releases to PS Vita.
