THE FUTURE OF FLASH DEVELOPMENT ON CONSOLES

This section looks into the near future of Flash on Sony PlayStation 2, as well as the Xbox and PC. Before the players are released to the public, there are many variables and decisions to be made by Macromedia and Sony. Let’s look into the best-case scenario and assume that these issues will be solved shortly.

Flash Player for the Internet

Currently, Sony only allows developers to use its tools and licenses after it approves of the game concept and the developers pay Sony a considerable sum. In return, Sony helps to distribute and market the games and provides developer support. Sony sees this approach as important to ensure that only high-quality games are available on the Sony PlayStation 2. Because Flash does not show off the Sony PlayStation 2 3D hardware, it does not seem likely that Sony will approve of normally distributed game titles created in Flash.
