Sony adopts Objective-C and GNUstep frameworks

EMB Numbers (934125) writes | more than 3 years ago

Apple 1

EMB Numbers (934125) writes "Sony has revealed that the new SNAP development environment for "consumer electronics" is based on Objective-C and the open source GNUstep implementation of Apple's Openstep spec. While Apple has continued to update their specification in the form of Cocoa and Mac OS X, GNUstep has preserved the original standard. Anyone familiar with Cocoa Touch and iOS will feel right at home developing for Sony. There may even be some source code compatibility between the platforms. The world continues to chase apple — probably for the better."

Access to whom? (1)

The page is slow. It describes SNAP as "a project designed to leverage the open source community to build and evolve the next generation application framework for consumer electronic devices. The developer program gives access to a developer community and resources like SDK, tools, documentation and other developers." It then goes on to ramble about the minor philosophical differences among OpenStep, GNUstep, and SNAP.

But to whom does Sony plan to grant such access? Will Sony open up PlayStation family to individual developers and small businesses, as opposed to companies that are already established in the mainstream video game industry?
