...there is no cost to become a licensed developer, but dev kits do cost. In some cases, Sony lends dev kits.

In a press release from November of 2007, Sony Computer Entertainment International announced that dev kits for the PlayStation 3 would cost $10,250.

Bain told his audience that if they were working on a smaller casual title, they could alternately use debug units which are less expensive 10 percent of the cost of a full dev kit.

The PSP is easier to develop for, Bain pointed out: "It doesn't require a huge amount of programming resources to develop on the PlayStation Portable." He also outlined the release of Media Manager version 3 an application that would function as iTunes, but for the PSP.

So this seems like an interesting first move.  Probably an experiment.  Too bad they just won't open up the PSP and PS2 fully.  They obviously are eyeing the XBLA for the PS Network.  The back catalog and port opportunities are delicious to imagine.
