Verunks points out that senior manager Mark Danks at the Playstation Blog has announced the availability of PS2 and PSP development kits
through college programs. He writes:
"PlayStation-edu is a program for universities and colleges to get access to PS2 and PSP development kits ... the same ones that professional developers use to make the games you love to play. You get the development software, the hardware, and the SDK to learn and experiment with. SCEA wants to make sure that students who are graduating from college are ready to program on PlayStation hardware and that means getting it into your hands."
