Amsterdam-based independent publisher Playlogic has signed an agreement with Sony Computer Entertainment America giving the company full publishing rights in the US for titles on the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable platforms.

The move will enable the company to bring its games to market in the United States directly, without having to work through third parties.

Executive VP Rogier Smit expressed his delight at the new opportunities the deal will bring: "The United States is the largest single country market in the world for the PlayStation family and we are very proud to have joined the select few that meet the criteria to become a publisher for SCEA."

There is no confirmation as to whether or not the agreement covers potential PlayStation 3 titles in the future, but the company currently has no PS3 titles on its release schedule.
