Sony's Cheaper PS3 development kit

In early March Sony made some waves saying the PS3 is hard to develop for on purpose. In the last days news surrounding new tools for PS3 developers have appeared. We already reported about the NVIDIA PhysX engine available now on the PS3.
Now Sony is further enhancing its support for developers with the introduction of new Reference Tool models in March 2009, DECR-1400A for North America and Europe/PAL territories at US $2,000 and €1,700 respectively, and DECR-1400J for Japan at JPY 200,000.

The story is too old to be commented.

This means that If I and a few of my buddies got into development we could spend 2000 dollars on a developers kit (really cheap) then spend about6 months or so (estimate) making a little PSN game have about a 10-12 man team sounds like something to do and make pretty good money off of. :) I wanna make video games when I'm done with school.

Phyre Engine is free. You just have to fill out some forms and agree to a NDA and to make your games exclusive to Sony. That's the route I'm looking into.

Well I'm 15 and I don;t take programing till next year. So maybe over the summer I can practice coding and 3-D character Models At least I plan on being mostly the 3-D design guy.

yep, Cheaper Dev kit= More games to look foward to by developers who can finally afford to get one, not to mention tools that makes developing on the PS3 easier than ever before.
