Posted on 4-Mar-2005 14:47 | Tags Filed under: News



Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. will be present at the 2005 Game Developers Conference, held 7-11 March in San Francisco. Sony Computer Entertainment America will host its largest overall show presence in company history, featuring the newest PlayStation platform, PSP (PlayStation Portable), innovations for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system and EyeToy, as well as tools and technologies designed to encourage game development on all platforms. Company experts in game development, programming, and technology are set to speak at numerous sessions during the 19th annual conference.

The Game Developers Conference is the world's largest event exclusively devoted to game creators, and hosts more than 10,000 attendees, providing educational, networking, and business opportunities for the professionals. The gaming industry currently moves US$10 billion, according to the company.

This year, Sony Computer Entertainment America will support developers and publishers in the creation of PlayStation content by providing development tools and technologies through conference presentations, panels and booth demonstrations.

Sony Computer Entertainment America staff will be available at its booth throughout the conference to offer a look at the latest developments in tools and technologies, including PSP demonstrations, with games that highlight the features of the device, such as wireless multiplayer gaming via Wi-Fi (802.11b). The booth will also feature contents of the PSP Value Pack and the PSP Development Tool, a hardware development system that enables developers to create and debug PSP software efficiently over a network. This development tool is also equipped with extra memory for debugging, wireless LAN capability, battery emulation monitoring, VGA output, and DVD and Universal Media Disc (UMD) drives to testing of production game builds.

PlayStation 2 advancements will be shown, including demonstrations of a variety of games and the PlayStation 2 Performance Analyzer, a tool for conducting detailed performance analysis of games during development. Sixty-minute sessions on the Performance Analyzer will be held throughout the duration of the expo to provide developers hands-on access as well as an opportunity to speak with experts regarding how to best utilize this tool.
