    The PlayStation Suite SDK has been announced quite some time ago. Sony never really fought againts homebrew, they fought againts hacking and exploiting their systems.

    They have a long tradition of releasing suites like this, starting with the Net Yaroze through PS2 Linux and finally the PlayStation Suite. Unfortunatelly I'm pretty sure that this SDK limits the possibilities of using Vita's resources - it's aimed at Certified Android devices, the Vita only piggy-backs to it.

    Oh alright. We'll just have to wait and see if anything good or interesting comes out of it I guess. Carry on then.

    From what I understand, the problem with this SDK is that it does not produce "native" Vita binaries, only Android Apps wrapped neatly into a launcher of sorts. Rather than directly accessing hardware, the launcher interprets the embedded application and allows access to hardware - it's a VM-like setup.
