£50,000 offered for PlayStation Network prototypes
Companies invited to pitch for funding for future PSN products and services
Sony is to launch the Get in the Game project tonight, offering five developers the change to receive GBP 10,000 to prototype new content for the PlayStation Network.
The company will be holding a free workshop in December to provide better insight into working with the format holder, with attendees invited to pitch ideas to a panel of Sony execs and producers.
The panel will then select five companies to receive the GBP 10,000 to prototype their ideas over the first three months of 2009. Prototypes will then be shown to Sony Europe with the possibility of going into full production.
The competition is in conjunction with Northwest Vision and Media and is designed to support the games industry in the Northwest region.
