2-2-2-2 SN-DBS Free To All PlayStation® Game Title Developers

Bristol, 12th October, 2007 – SN Systems, a subsidiary of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) is pleased to announce SN-DBS (Distributed Build System) will be available as a license-free download, to SCEI’s licensed PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™), PlayStation®2 and PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) game title developers from today. SN-DBS significantly reduces compile times by distributing source code builds between cooperating PCs on a local area network. SN-DBS can also be used for building assets via the command line. In addition to SN-DBS being made available at no cost, developers also have the added benefit that a new version 2.0 has been launched.
Major improvements of version 2.0 include:
· Building of multiple projects in parallel.
· Faster builds compared to SN-DBS v1.4 or earlier
· Improved GUI with project view.
· Improved support for asset builds.
SN-DBS is a multi-platform product and will work with all PS3, PSP and PlayStation 2 projects when used in conjunction with a platform-specific compiler. Support fees will no longer be associated with this product, however SN Systems will continue to offer support and develop SN-DBS on an ongoing basis following feedback from game title developers.
