Sony has announced that they will be investing pretty heavily in the PS3, initially planning on devoting $20 million dollars over the next three years specifically for game development.
That's right. Twenty Million Dollars.
Brandon Stander, PSN Director of Marketing, made the announcement on the PlayStation blog, tantalizing gamers with the promise of well made, quality games exclusive to the Sony system in the upcoming years. First up is a PC port titled 'Eufloria' as well as 'Okabu' and Papo&Yo. Okabu is a puzzle game set in a toybox world of intersting creatures and machines, while Papo&Yo is a puzzle platformer.
Both first party studios and independent developers will benefit from this influx of money, hopefully allowing for many good things to come.
