PSP dev kit: Now 50% off!

PSPSN Systems, a subsidiary of Sony Corporation, announced yesterday that the development tools required to create PlayStation Portable software have been reduced in price by a very hefty 50 percent. Manufacturer support fees will also be halved.

The goal of this move is obviously to get more developers on board producing games for the handheld, which has already enjoyed quite a bit of sales growth over the last few months. Sony expects to have sold over 13 million PSP units by the end of the fiscal year in March.

The company has also reduced the price of development tools for the Playstation 3, which means that maybe they are finally understanding that it is software, not impressive specs or sleek design that ultimately sells hardware. Let’s just hope that this doesn’t mean a huge library of crappy games.
