Sony Computer Entertainment
Inc. will cooperate with Taiwan's Ministry of Economic Affairs
to nurture and support a local industry of software developers
for the Sony PlayStation 3 game console.

by the ministry to outline its policy of support.
SCE will introduce PS3 game producers from Japan and the
West to software developers in Taiwan, and will help these
companies with technical guidance and the transfer of
technologies from the Japanese and Western software
The Ministry of Economic Affairs plans to subsidize 40 per
cent of the cost of software development and technology
licensing that the Taiwanese firms incur.

lectures in cooperation with Tatung University.

aims to firmly establish a base for the PS3 game market in
Taiwan and to develop games geared toward mainland China.
