Well.. this is certainly interesting news. I am curious what the "license agreement from SCE for the PlayStation® SDKs" will cost.

TOKYO, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCE) and Unity Technologies, provider of the Unity multi-platform engine and development tools, have entered into a strategic partnership as of March 15, 2013. Through this partnership, SCE will offer Unity for PlayStation® with optimized deployment for PlayStation®4 (PS4™), PlayStation®3 (PS3®), PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita) and PlayStation®Mobile (PSM). Unity for PlayStation® will use the same industry leading integrated development environment that over 1.5 million developers around the world have adopted for its power and elegance.
...
With the power of Unity's integrated development environment, developers with a license agreement from SCE for the PlayStation® SDKs will be able to build and deploy unrivaled entertainment experiences for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita without spending many resources on complex programming processes. Unity for PlayStation® enables developers to easily port their games to PS4, PS3, PS Vita and PSM without the need to rewrite the code from scratch. Moreover, Unity developers can now bring their IP to dedicated console systems like PS Vita, where users can play their games incorporating unique features like rear touchpad, dual analog sticks, front-and-rear cameras and six axis motion sensor.
....
Unity for PlayStation® also allows Unity developers to create games for PSM more efficiently without the need for an additional PlayStation®Mobile SDK.*1 Both Unity for PlayStation® and PSM SDK use the .NET framework allowing for easy transition between the two tools. In addition, Unity developers can easily port their games created for iPhone, iPad, and Android™ based smartphones and tablets to launch on PSM, removing the need for extensive re-coding.
...
Games developed using Unity for PlayStation® will be available on PlayStation®Store (PS Store)

I think it's a big step for unity. To team up with SCE for PS4 support. That should really push Unity into the Next Gen era.

This is really cool. I don't know if I'm going to rush out and get into Unity, but its good to know that the game programming community is rallying around something rather than going off in 50 different directions.
