"The PlayStation2 development tools offer several significant improvements over the development environment for the original PlayStation. The original PlayStation tools were supplied in the form of a PC extension board that required a PC or workstation. Connecting the PC or workstation to a network added further complexity to the development process. In contrast, the PlayStation2 development tools combine two separate operational modes in one unit: regular PlayStation programming/debugging mode and a new workstation mode. In the new mode, the tools can be used as a Linux-based workstation enabling developers to create graphics in the PlayStation2 development environment that were only previously possible on a separate workstation. When the development tools are employed with an Ethernet network connection, the result is a seamless development environment."

"Sony Computer Entertainment will continue to refine this new development tool concept with a view to providing a content creation environment that combines movie and game creation for a new form of computer entertainment."
