Sony, Taiwanese Gov't Collaborate On PS3 Dev Support
Sony, Taiwanese Gov't Collaborate On PS3 Dev Support
July 7, 2009 | By Leigh Alexander

Sony's taking steps to build a base of PlayStation 3 developers in Taiwan -- and the local government is helping, offering PS3 developers a 40 percent subsidy for licensing and development costs.

Sony will bring in Japanese and Western PS3 developers to offer guidance and tech support to Taiwanese software developers learning to develop PS3 games, according to a Nikkei report. The company will also sponsor lectures at Taiwan's Tatung University, a private technology institute connected to consumer tech manufacturer Tatung Company.

Eventually, Sony hopes to establish a strong Taiwanese development community that can create PS3 games for mainland China -- where the large majority of the gaming audience has primarily been PC and online players.

The Ministry of Economic Affairs' plans to support Sony in creating a PS3 development community in Taiwan were recently announced at a joint press conference.
