PlayStation 3 gets amBX support

Peripherals firm gets tools and middleware license for Sony console

amBX is to develop technology for the PlayStation 3, after gaining a tools and middleware license from Sony Computer Entertainment.

The technology adds support for light, colour, rumble and air flow to videogames through additional peripherals.

"This is a major milestone in the development of amBX as a ubiquitous standard for entertainment sensory experiences," commented Jo Cooke, chief marketing officer at amBX.

"amBX has already proved incredibly popular and successful within the PC games, music, movies and apps markets and the tools and middleware license agreement with SCEI will allow us to bring amazing light, rumble, sound and air movement experiences to game users."

The company will be at GDC 2009, offering free developer tutorials to interested parties.
