British game development tools specialist SN Systems is today celebrating success on another new console platform, after it was revealed that the vast majority of the PSP launch titles in the USA have been developed using its software.

Out of the 24 titles which will launch on the platform in North America in late March, a total of 20 were developed using SN Systems' ProDG for PSP tools suite, which brings the firm's expertise in game development software to the new Sony handheld.

"Development of 'Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower' went smoothly and credit is due to the guys at SN Systems for delivering such a reliable and stable product so quickly in the early stages of PSP," according Takahiro Yamada, director of software technology at Capcom, one of the firms which has adopted ProDG for PSP.

"When we needed it, SN Systems' support team were incredibly quick to respond and resolve any issues we came up against," he continued. "We've used ProDG on other platforms but this latest version has some major new features, which have proved essential. The new UI for the debugger and the compiler SNC both stand out as examples of how much thought has gone into utilising new and future console technology."

Andy Beveridge, co-founder of the Bristol based company, is understandably delighted at the fresh success the firm has found on the new platform. "We're naturally very pleased to have such a strong following in the development community," he commented.

"At SN Systems we continually strive to create tools that allow game developers to concentrate on creativity instead of production issues," he continued. "We're continually looking to create the best possible tools and constantly talk to developers to find ways to make their jobs easier."
