Sony has launched a new program to teach students how to develop for PlayStation platforms.
The PlayStation-edu program will give universities and colleges that teach programming and computer architecture the opportunity to add development kits for the PlayStation 2 and PSP to their curricula.
“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,” wrote Mark Danks, senior manager of developer support, last week on the official PlayStation blog.
The kits won’t be free, and must be purchased by schools. The program will also give students access to a support website and forums.
