Sony’s PlayStation Network is almost twice as popular with UK development studios as Xbox Live Arcade, according to a new survey.

As reported by Develop, a Tiga survey of around than 100 UK-based studios revealed that approximately 30 are currently developing for the PSN, whilst 16 are working on content for XBLA.

The results may be a little off balance, with Sony having five first-party studios in the UK over Microsoft’s two, but the survey also shows that even Nintendo’s WiiWare platform isn’t too far behind XBLA when it comes to Brit development.

It seems to be a good time for the PSN, and with Sony set to launch its PlayStation Vita handheld across Europe early next year, we can’t see it coming to a halt too soon.
