Local game developers will now have ready access to development tools such as PlayStation®3 and PSP®(PlayStation®Portable).

In addition, NYP will provide a dedicated team of experienced mentors to share their knowledge and expertise with game developers and guide them from start-up to commercialisation.

Developers will also be trained using HP EliteBook w-Series Mobile Workstations, which are designed for intensive computer activity. With this, the standard of the industry will be enhanced. Game developers will also be more productive and develop innovative products that are more likely to succeed in the market place.

  • The GSC will create a business zone where investors, legal and business advisors can gather at regularly. With this, companies can come together to share their ideas, and at the same time sharpen their business acumen, and learn how to protect and monetize their intellectual properties, as they take their products to market.
