Game Links :: Ico
SCEA announces full list of companies supporting the new Playstation Portable console.

- SCEA today announced at the E3 in Los Angeles that 99 third party game developers and publishers from around the world have already decided to support the PSP, the new Playstation Portable console. The PSP is currently scheduled for a Late 2004 release in Japan and a Spring 2005 release in North America and Europe. Stay tuned on Ps2Fantasy.com for more news on the amazing little console, as we'll soon launch a new subsite entirely dedicated to the PSP.

So far, 34 Japanese developers, 24 North American developers, 31 European developers, and 10 South Korean developers expressed their support and interest for the PSP - it's unclear how many of these companies actually started developing at least a product for the PSP, but the numbers are more than promising. All the most important big and small companies are already in the list, as you can see by yourself.
