Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) announced that it will enhance the game development support environment for PS3 by integrating programming tools developed by SN Systems Limited, as part of the PS3 Software Development Kit.

By building on the well-established line-up of SN tool products, including the core programming tool ProDG, and offering it as part of the PS3 SDK, SCEI is committed to strongly supporting the game development community. Additionally, Sony will enable the Debugging Station for PS3 (DECHA007J/ DECHA007A) to take part in the programming process, effectively assisting PS3 game title development on the Reference Tool (DECR-1000/ DECR-1000A).

Along with these measures to improve efficiency in PS3 game development, SCEI has almost halved the price for its PS3 Reference Tool, effective immediately. The Reference Tool will now become available at 950,000 Yen in Japan, US $10,250 in North America and €7,500 in Europe.

This might lower the entry level for game developers. Let's see if more boutique game studios open up for the PS3.
