Pong on PS Vita
In order to get a first game development experience, I created a simple Pong game running on the latest handheld from Sony : the PlayStation Vita.
I used the “PlayStation Mobile” SDK that relies on Mono and C# code. This is one of the main reason I chose this platform, given my prior C# knowledge. The downside is that code runs in a VM so you can’t really access the Vita’s full power, but it is not concern or a simple game like Pong.
