PlayStation Vita keynote at Develop 2011

Handheld’s hardware and development tools explained at conference

Sony’s new handheld, the PlayStation Vita, will be the star of the Coding keynote at the Develop conference in Brighton next month.

The talk, presented by Kish Hirani, head of developer services and Neil Brown, senior engineer for SCEE R&D, will cover both hardware, development tools and share the experiences of developers currently working on launch titles.

“We are delighted to be given the opportunity to give the coding keynote at Develop Conference this year," said Hirani. “This year the Develop Conference becomes the first public technical level disclosure of our exciting new portable games console, PS Vita."

The announcement follows news yesterday that David Braben will also present a talk at the conference. The event takes place in Brighton from July 19–21.
