- 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 will need to be a certified PlayStation® developer, as well as require a Unity Pro serial key. Your Unity Pro serial key is provided to you free of charge by Sony when developing for PlayStation®. 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 will first need to register on the PlayStation® Partners website.
Once 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’ve become 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 will be required to have an active Unity Pro license (not a preferred license key from another platform) or purchase one directly from our Sales Team.
At this time Microsoft is not providing a Preferred Platform Key for use on their platform. Please contact your Xbox developer account manager or contact id@xbox for the latest information on Xbox game developer programs.
