PS4 dev kit applications open for educators tomorrow

Educators and academics can apply for PlayStation 4 development kits beginning tomorrow as part of the PlayStationFirst Academic Programme, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe announced today.

SCEE is inviting universities to apply for kits through the program, which currently offers kits for PlayStation 3, PS Vita, PlayStation Portable and software kits for PlayStation Home and PlayStation Mobile. Academic dev kits include access to the full suite of PlayStation software and hardware for instructional purposes, including lessons in programming, computer engineering and developing software.

The goal of the PlayStationFirst program is to foster partnerships between Sony and educational organizations and universities. Membership is by invitation only.

"The next generation of indie developers are now in education, and PlayStationFirst is at the forefront of enabling students to gain future-fit skills for PlayStation console development by providing access to real professional tools," head of academic development for Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Dr. Maria Stukoff said in a statement.

Interested applicants can contact Sony here.
