Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) on Tuesday announced that it would slash the price on PlayStation 3 software developments kit to enable higher amount of game creators to develop titles for the latest generation Sony video game console.

Sony Computer Entertainment today introduced new reference tool models in March 2009, DECR-1400A for North America and Europe/PAL territories at $2000 and €1,700 respectively, and DECR-1400J for Japan at ¥200 thousand. The reference tool models DECR-1000A and DECR-1000 introduced in 2007 cost $10 250.

Having the same form factor as the commercially available PS3, the new reference tool (RT) models allow advanced game programming and more efficient computer graphics rendering. With its more affordable pricing, this new model will appeal to a broader range of developers and publishers, and will help to provide a more streamlined game development environment, further accelerating the game development for PS3.

In addition to the introduction of new RT models, Sony will also enhance its support by providing a comprehensive line-up of software tools as well as technical support to the game development community.

“SCEI will deploy various measures to further reinforce game development for PS3 and will continue to expand the platform to offer attractive interactive entertainment experiences only available on PS3,” Sony said in a statement.
