Linux for PlayStation

December 8, 2008

The Linux Kit for PlayStation 2 is about making the PlayStation 2 hardware accessible for learning how to develop games aside from offering a functional distribution of Linux. Several universities in the US, Europe and Australia as well as other educational groups have made use of Linux for PlayStation2 facilities and teaching modules to form part of their degrees and courses.

Linux for PlayStation provides the opportunity to try one’s hand at PlayStation 2- specific programming while using the hardware in the same way as professional game developers do. Modern computer games consoles can be used as an effective teaching and learning tool for courses in Computer Games Technology.
