One of the things Sony has/is change(ing) is allowing what they call "self publishing".
Before, to publish a game on their platform, they would have to approve the concept of the game -- in much the same way that Apple can remove iPhone apps if they don't like the content. Sony is dialing back these content checks.
For this to matter to you, you still have to be a licenced Sony developer, own dev-kits, and pass all of the platform's *technical* compliance checks.

Buying dev-kits and paying for a technical review is still very expensive - I wouldn't consider it unless you have several tens of thousands spare in the budget. As frob mentions above, this is realistic for independent developers, but not for indie devs ;-)
