You can't.

You need the official tools and development kit that Sony only rents out to qualified publishers and developers.

You don't rent SDK kits btw you have to buy them, it is often the publisher that owns the kit though and then they lend it to the studio for use.

You can't do anything Playstation related unless you rent out a development kit from Sony, as I said above.

You have a PC, you can make and test PC games.

Night, doesn't the publisher only lease them? That is what I have read all over the place. Edited by Daaark

Sony and Microsoft only give development kits to big companies with lots of money and a resume of previous completed titles, and even then, it's not a given.

You can sell an indy game on Microsoft's Xbox Live Indy Games channel. It costs 99$ for a Creator's Club membership, and you can put up anything for sale as long as it passes a technical peer review. But I believe you have to be at least 18, so that means you have to wait 5 years, and I'm sure the service won't be around by then.

You can get a Google play developer's license for 25$ and then develop anything you want for the Google Play Store. This is one path of least resistance. Then you can develop for Android phones and tablets, and eventually, the Ouya.

No you buy them as the X360 comes with a Visual Studio license and the Sony kits cost 1800 USD a piece, however you do have to be recognised by MS or Sony as an actual developer to get them. You get more then just the devkit by buying one btw you also get access to the SDKs and Help forums.

you can become an official ps vita developer by applying to Playstation Mobile program.

but it's not the official SDK for the big companies, it's more similar to XNA. Something for indies and small developer.

It costs 99$ per year. However, not all countries are supported yet.
