Sony launches PlayStation Mobile contest for UK small developers
Sony is reaching out to UK indies with a game development contest for PlayStation Mobile, with the winning concept receiving a very handsome £25000 (just over $40000.) The winner also has the opportunity to work with XDEV (Sony Europe's external development studio), while XDEV gets first refusal on publishing the final game.

As Sony notes, PlayStation Mobile development tools are now freely available, so anyone can enter this contest - anyone who lives in the UK, that is. Joystiq's new UK studio is already hard at work reviewing the latest games, so we're out of luck too. Our interested UK friends, however, have until the end of this month to submit their concepts, with the winner announced on November 14.

PlayStation Mobile gets its first batch of PlayStation Store games on October 3.
