There''s something call Net Yarzoo or something that Sony sold in Japan that lets hobbyist program the PS2. I think they also sold a Linux kit in Japan, and are surverying the markey in the US. There''s a petition thread elsewhere on GameDev to get Sony to sell the linux kits in the US, and a link to Sony''s website where you can fill in a survery saying you''d be interested in buying one.

You can plug a USB keyboard & mouse into the thing, and they make harddrives & netcards for it as well.

I have no idea what (if any) tools are burned-into the prom''s of the PS2.

"YABASIC" - Its available in Europe too (although cynics believe the reason is to do with tax differences between a "computer" and a "console" over here - add a keyboard and a programming language and you can call it a computer thus getting bigger tax breaks and more sales).

Hey Magmai Kai Holmlor, get your facts strait. The Net Yaroze is the black developement PSX (playstation) console, not for PS2 developement. The Linux kit for PS2 might be realeased here. Sony Computer Entertainment is not sure yet. They released a questionare at www.ps2linux.scea.com on whether or not you would be interested in purchasing a PS2 Linux kit if it were sold here. If you have not filled out your yes response yet, go there now and do so!!!!!!! The more support, the better. For your info, the PS2 Linux kit consists of PS2 Emotion Engine compilation of Linux, the PS2 Runtime Environment, a GCC compiler, and some other stuff.
