Sony ships 10,000 dev kits

Earlier today, news spread that Sony's Developer Relations Manager had left to pursue a career at Ubisoft. It was also revealed that J Patton would assume Mark DeLoura's role.

SCEA's PR Manager, Ryan Bowling, has gone a step further to express the null affect this has had on Sony.

Apparently Sony still has very good relations with many developers, including "EA, Konami, Sega, Rockstar, Activison and our own internal studios just to name a few".

Bowling also revealed PlayStation 3 dev kit shipment figures, which look extremely impressive when compared to previous PlayStation consoles, and the PS3's closest competitor, the Xbox 360.

"To date we have shipped more than 10,000 development systems to 208 companies in 11 countries."

The story is too old to be commented.

They ship 10.000, but with 10 to 20% yield on the Cell only 1.000 to 2.000 arrive working ;)

soccerstar5406d ago

you are an idiot why would sony give developers ps3's that did not work? The chips that dont work are thrown away or put into other products besides the ps3 and dev kits u retard

Sony is being picky. The Cell has to be perfect.

soccerstar, did you see the ;) face, and you know what the word sarcastic means? Go look it up then

The article talks about different versions of the dev kits, so I'm understanding that the 10,000 kits are not the final dev kits. I don't know how many final dev kits have been sent out...or even if that makes a difference. I would think it does, but I'm no programmer.

They are not the final dev kits so this story sucks!!!! Talk when they have shipped the final dev kits that the dev`s keep asking for!!!
