Apparently the publishing fee of 99$ is too much for some folks, Thus Sony has decided that to waver it all together starting NOW(as of yesterday, actually), Making it easy for developers to publish their content across the PS Mobile platform . Their are already great indie games on Sony's PS mobile store, Like Life of Pixel and this paves the way for even more.
On the other side Apple's 99$ publishing fee is still their, With much more content. So the fee is certainly not the issue.
