Sony Computer Entertainment has reduced the cost of the PlayStation 3 development kit by more than half.
The PS3 Reference Tool can now be licensed by developers and publishers for USD 2000, compared to the previous price of USD 10,250. Sony last halved the price of its development kit in 2007, promising future further cuts.
"With more and more new and exciting PS3 titles scheduled for release this year from third-party developers and publishers as well as from SCE Worldwide Studios," the company commented, "SCEI will deploy various measures to further reinforce game development for PS3 and will continue to expand the platform to offer attractive interactive entertainment experiences only available on PS3."
