Sony To Discuss PSP In Detail

At the Game Conference on Sept 9-10, 2004 in Austin, Texas, Sony will give its most detailed technical discussion yet on programming for the PlayStation Portable (PSP). This week Sony announced the PSP will support Talkman, which translates spoken input into another language and plays it through the console's speaker, and Sony also said the PSP's wireless technology would allow up to 16 players to compete against each other simultaneously.

Here's a snippet from the conference website:

Programming the PlayStation Portable (PSP)
David Coombes, Senior Developer Support Engineer
Peter Young, Developer Support Engineer

"The PlayStation Portable (PSP) is more similar to a game console than a traditional handheld. It is a powerful device for a handheld gaming platform, and includes some innovative hardware features that will enable new gameplay experiences."

"This presentation will detail the architecture and design of the PSP to as great an extent as possible. Key features that will impact game design decisions will be highlighted. This is Sony's most detailed public technical discussion of the PSP and developing for the PSP to date! Important production-related considerations will be discussed. Software APIs and example program code will be illustrated."
