- How do I develop to PS4, PS5, or other PlayStation® platforms?
- I want to deploy to a PlayStation platform. How can I do this?
If you attempt to build to a PlayStation 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".
If you would like to use Unity to develop for PS5 or other PlayStation® hardware, you need to be a certified PlayStation® developer and have a valid Unity Pro serial key.
Your Unity Pro serial key is provided to you free of charge by Sony when developing for PlayStation®. Please note that this serial key is only meant for developing on PlayStation® hardware.
To register as a PlayStation® Partner, get access to the DevNet developer network, and receive your Unity Pro serial key, you first need to register on the PlayStation® Partners website.
After you are registered and you have been confirmed as a registered PlayStation® developer, you are granted access to Sony’s DevNet developer forum and you need to submit a private DevNet ticket which is then responded to by a Sony account manager.
View the following page to access DevNet once you are a registered PlayStation® developer: https://siedev.net/login/login.
The Sony account manager then provides further assistance on obtaining a PS4/PS5 preferred platform license key to use for development in Unity. This preferred platform key is valid only for the development of the PlayStation® platforms.
For information on how to access the PlayStation® forums, please see the article, 'How can I access the PlayStation® Forums?'
|NOTE: If you are a PlayStation® developer and choose to also build a title for Xbox, you are required to have an active Unity Pro license (not a preferred license key from another platform) or purchase one directly from our Sales Team.|
Doesn't work for now :(
Sorry to hear that you are not currently able to access Sony devNet page.
I will double check with our team and let you know if we get any update regarding this issue.
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.
The PS Partners team
Thanks for the comment on it.
I've checked that Sony Platform team is resuming their service for registration : https://www.companyregistration.playstation.com/
We apologies for the inconveniences caused by this issue.

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.
Doesn't even work for a company really who has 30 mins to waste filling in a form that doesn't work thinik pc is better and apple.
I am wanting to make games for PlayStation but I am uncertain how to go about doing everything. The partners site mentions having a company (I don't) and static ip/business email (I don't have either of those) Is it still possible?
Thank you for your comment!
It is great to hear that you are looking to become a PlayStation Developer with Unity.
Sadly, in order to register as a Playstation Developer via the PlayStation Partners website, you will need to provide and verify your business information to be accepted.
This is to ensure Unity Developers are meeting the standards that PlayStation has set, to release games on their platform.
I hope this has been helpful in any case. If there is anything else you need, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively, you can submit a ticket via this web form.
