Sony Computer Entertainment subsidiary SN Systems has announced that they will be cutting the cost of development kits for the PSP. This move marks a new strategy by Sony to try and increase development support on the PSP, and is nothing short of great news for current and future developers. With the PSP having solid sales and Sony working to try and take care of the people responsible for the software, things are looking up for the little handheld that could!
SN Systems director Andy Beveridge: “SN Systems development tools for PSP are well-established and mature, having been on sale since the end of 2004. Since then, the tools have grown extensively as a result of direct feedback from PSP game title developers.
“Significantly reducing the cost of the tools will help to ensure that PSP game title developers have everything they need to continue creating great titles. This price reduction, coupled with the recent addition of Tuner (performance optimizer) to ProDG for PSP, makes the core development tool a very attractive package.”
