Sony has slashed the price of its PS3 development kit and promised further reductions as more studios adopt the technology, GamesIndustry.biz reports. The PlayStation 3 Reference Tool will now be available for EUR 7500 here (GBP 5,357), JPY 950,000 in Japan and USD 10,250 in North America. "As more and more new titles are developed for the PS3 format, SCEI will significantly reduce the price of the Reference Tool in order to contribute to the cost saving measures of the development community," said Sony. The console giant has also begun to integrate new programming tools into the PlayStation 3 Software Development Kit from SN Systems, including confusing things like ProDG, SN Distributed Build System, SN Linker and SN Compiler.
