Time is definitely no longer on the side of the current PSPunits. SCEE has given official word to developers that they will no longer be selling dev kits after November 15th.
Said the notice, the company will "no longer be selling the PSP development tool (dtp-t2000a) or testing tool (dtp-h2500a)". Now if the devs still want to make some last minute projects for these PSP models, then they should try and get their hands on the dev kits before the aforementioned deadline of November 15.
There's no need for concern, though, because as soon as Sony comes out with the new model, they'll be advising the devs so that they can avail of it. Said Sony, "Due to the certification on the current development and test tools expiring, we will be stopping selling them on November 15. However, we will continue to provide loan stock for registered and new developers, until a new certified model is available."
With these dev kits "expiring", and Sony talking of a newer certified model, this certainly only further hypes the speculation of a PSP2 coming to town very soon. If only for that, people will definitely be looking forward to this expiration date.
