Yes i'm afraid too. The VM running the code seem to be not very fast regarding all the thread about this subject on the pss forum. But another question come in my mind: Why use this this tool (i assume some of us use it), if it will be closed [put a random date here] in the near future?
All our work will finish to the trash? No one will be able to use it, even the guys making it.
I'm just playing with their sdk and try to make a basic lib to achieve some intros/demos (and we can't make a mod/xm player for now... sadly...). What i need to do is to achieve at least one prod and release it as videos on pouet or elsewhere and i'm done. But for people making really great project taking more time, usefull for other people, what will happen ?
Give the 99$ to Sony and try to publish the app (with the hope that Sony will not blast you) ? Or wait for something like a VITA hack + PSS SDK unlock / Alternive SDK (making the old project incompatible?)?
