Sony's SN Systems opens up new office in Dublin, Ireland
Indulge me for a moment as it's not often I get to report on movements in the Sony spectrum that affect my home town. SN Systems, a subsidiary of SCE, and developer of tools for all three of Sony's gaming devices (PS3, PSP and PS2), have opened a satellite office in Dublin, Ireland.
With its headquarters in Bristol, U.K., new offices are now popping up in San Jose and Dublin in an effort to attract new talent and address "the demand of supporting PlayStation game title developers worldwide."
Check out their own website to see some testimonials from the producers of such games as God of War II and Resistance: Fall of Man praising SN Systems' products such as "ProDG" and "Tuner".
With an exceptionally technical workforce, and comparatively low labour costs compared to the U.K. and the U.S., Dublin seems to have been a good choice. It also helps that the Irish are game crazy with the office sure to attract technical people who also love to game.
Fun trivia fact: outside of Japan, Ireland has the highest console penetration rate per household in the world. Yes, I'm proud, and yes, I'll be sending in my resume to SN Systems as soon as possible.
