    Default PS3 dev-kit drought

    Sony is already having problems meeting software publisher demand for the development kits for their recently announced next-generation console, PlayStation 3.

    Sony president Ken Kutaragi revealed to Japanese newspaper Jiji that the company has so far provided more than 100 PS3 development kits to various publishers.

    However, he goes on to say that they are struggling to meet the high demand for the kits and are already running out of parts.

    So, could this shortage of the necessary tools used to create PS3 games have a detrimental effect on the volume and quality of games we can expect from the first wave of PS3 titles?

    Well, not really. This scenario really isn't unusual - most recently Sony had trouble supplying enough PSP dev-kits - and developers can simply navigate around the problem by working according to the console's specifications on high-end PCs.

    This allows a substantial portion of a game to be primed for completion before the dev-kits eventually drop through the letterbox, at which point developers can then make any necessary tweaks and alterations. So, there's absolutely no need to panic.
