Sony confirms Linux for PSX2 development

Sony has selected Linux running on Intel-based hardware as the development platform for PlayStation 2 games.

Speaking at last week’s Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Jose, Sony Computer Entertainment’s Phil Harrison mentioned in his keynote that all future PlayStation 2 releases would be developed under Linux.

Harrison said Sony had selected Linux rather than Windows because developers need “a stable platform”.

The story was reported by The Register.
