Sony Loans PS Vita Dev Kits To Indie Developers


Rubicon, are a small indie team who gained some fame with the indie iPhone game "Great Little War Game."

However now Rubicon have been reported to be working on a PS Vita port of Great Little War Game. But due to the low budget and "indie" factor of the team, Sony themselves have been loaning out PS Vita dev kits for a little charge of NOTHING!

A technical director for rubicon, Steven Haggerty, was understandably impressed by Sony, saying that the manufacturer is “the best of all” with regards to indie developers.
“We’ve worked with Apple, and you can’t get anything out of them,” he said to Develop. “Microsoft rarely responds and I suppose Nintendo are okay, but Sony are always there to help. They always get back to you.”

This is a great gesture from Sony who have always been known to help and support 'Garage Developers'
