How do I develop to Sony platforms?

Symptoms

  • How do I develop to a PS4/ PSVita or other Sony platforms?
  • I want to deploy to a Playstation platform, how can I do this?

Cause

If you attempt to build to a Sony platform, you will be faced with the following (or similar) message if you do not have a Playstation license activated:

“Your license does not cover PS4 publishing"

Resolution

If you would like to use Unity to develop for PS4 or other Sony hardware, you will need to be a certified Sony developer.

To register as a Sony Developer, please click the following link.

Once certified as a Sony Developer, you will be granted access to Sony’s DevNet developer forum. You will need to submit a private DevNet ticket with a Sony Representative, who will be able to provide you with a Unity license to develop to PS4.

More Information

For information on how to access the Playstation forums, please see this page.

    Sorry to hear that you are not currently able to access Sony devNet page.

    Have you heard anything on registration yet? The same page is still there. We are well into January 2020.

     

    EDIT: just got this email

    You will be able to apply on January 28th when the portal is reactivated.

     

    Thanks,

    Hi, I'm not able to register myself on https://register.playstation.net/company-information. Im stuck at the first page itself, coz I dont have a static IP address. 

    Why is Sony such a pain in the back ?

    Can't they be simple as google play store ?

    Don't take it the wrong way but it is kinda the point to not be easy. They want quality and not junk like Google has on their store. I finally did get approved took me four months. Kept hitting stupid errors. Just a FYI you must have a business id number, even though it says optional. I got my static IP address for $15 more a month from my ISP. I just called them and then confirmed my router (yes the router and not the modem) MAC address. Also it has now been a full month since I was approved and I still don't have access to the system. I received my email saying I was approved and to expect my welcome package email, which still hasn't arrived.

    Yeah I understand they're doing it intentionally but it is stupid and nonsensical for Sony to think only legally registered 'companies' can develop games. 'Closed' and restrictive platforms were the business practices last century, and not todays age. That level of mature thinking of Google and Apple is clearly lacking, which is why it remains Sony and not Google.
    Add $15 pain point to that and you get more justification.
