A number of Japanese companies have had development hardware for the console for several months, and some are believed to be working on software demos for E3, but today brought the first confirmation that kits have shipped in the UK as well.

Details of what exactly is present in the next-generation PlayStation dev kits are sparse, but according to one development source, "they're more advanced than the PowerMac kits [Microsoft] has given us [for Xenon] - they're still prototypes, but they're closer to what'll be in the final console... The graphics chip isn't there, say, but we can get a pretty good idea by taking an NVIDIA 6800 and saying, okay, it'll be like this but faster."

We still don't know much about any of the next gen consoles but man are the rumors sound so good.

E3 couldn't come soon enough!

So that means we will not be seeing the ps3 for ages then cuz several months aint long at all. Oh well.

"they're more advanced than the PowerMac kits [Microsoft] has given us [for Xenon] -

Development times in many games is less then a year, only top AAA titles for the most part ever take a year or more. Several months could mean half a year... who knows...
