Bristol based company reveals that its tool suite was used to develop 20 of the 24 PSP launch titles in the US...

Its not often that we Brits stand up and, to use a somewhat British term, â??Blow our own trumpets,â? but today Bristol based SN Systems have done just that â?“ and rightly so. The company has revealed that their ProDG tool suite has been used in the development of twenty of the twenty-four PSP launch titles when the system is released in March.

Discussing the suite, Andy Beveridge, Director and Co-Founder of SN Systems commented, "We're naturally very pleased to have such a strong following in the development community. At SN Systems we continually strive to create tools that allow game developers to concentrate on creativity instead of production issues." He continued, "We're continually looking to create the best possible tools and constantly talk to developers to find ways to make their jobs easier."

Matt Wilkinson, Director of Technology at Activision said, "Powerful features such as multiple module support allows for easy debugging of dynamically loaded code, and the dead code and data stripping has saved us considerable space on a limited memory handheld. This, combined with the new debugger UI, has proven ProDG to be a very powerful development solution for the â??PSPâ??."

The ProDG tool suite includes the SNC C/C++ Compiler, which the PSP developers have been utilising because of itâ??s been designed specifically for console architecture resulting in smaller and faster code.

Weâ??ll have more shortly...

lol an 80 gb psp is not possible unless they use ssd hard drives which cost sh*t loads to buy independantly maybe you should get used to dreaming, though if they stop making any games for it or make a psp that could only get games from the ps3 then you could have maybe a 20gb max where the current disk drive is. apart from that the psp is getting more like the ds minus the touch screen which no doubt will probably happen in the no so distant future.

UMD already dead. Sony has nothing to lose by adding SD stuff on the Blu-ray discs for PSP viewing.

good point but i think i would only pay about $250 and not bother with the touch screen.with mobile tec in there you could play games over the net any time any where but only at a reasonable price of course.

Sony should have added a 40 or 80 gig internal hard drive like the ipod to the psp instead of making it thinner and lighter! With the extra space it would be the same size as the Orignal psp but with a hard drive! get the word out maybe they will hear our call! touch screen,Phone,internal camera, calender! I will pay $500 to $600 for this better then iphone because of games and UMD but same price!

fair enough about the head set although i've been trying to buy one for a while now and you can only get one with socom navy seals.but i already own the game and refuse to buy it again just for the headset.try'd ebay but prices are over valued with no idea if it still works.
