    I couldn´t find a thread about this.

    If this is based on the same dev kit DECR-1400A which was presented at GDC 09 it would be pretty neat.

    Which school ? Which school ?

    I probably don't have time. But Home SDK may be just nice. :(

    From this old slide show about previous SCEE edu-programs I´d guess at least one of these:
    • University of Greenwich
    • University of Alberay Dundee
    • University of Lincoln
    • Sheffield Hallam University

    But I guess it would be easiest to post your question straight to
    sarah_lemarie@scee.net

    She looks friendly.

    So they're trying to catch up with XNA here too. Wise decision, and it gives hope that PhyreEngine may take up a similar place to XNA eventually. I really hope so.

    Sounds similar to what they are offering to the universities. I hope the PS Eye Toolkit is in too besides PhyreEngine.

    There is no SCEA, Japan and Asia equivalent for this program right ? I know Sony has other arrangement for Korea, Taiwan and India.

    EDIT:
    Ok, SCEA does have one but it's based on PS2 hardware in the mean time:

    Don't know if they'll upgrade to PS3 like SCEE.
