Sony starts licensing for PlayStation add-ons

PStation Licensed Add-ons

Sony today hoped to spur growth in add-ons for PlayStation systems by launching an expanded official licensing program. The new approach lets companies in most areas make controllers or other peripherals for PS2, PS3 and PSP systems with full technical help and an official logo. In return, these companies will have to meet certain standards; it's not mentioned if companies will also pay royalties for the right to use the logo.

The program likely exists to try and improve the quality of add-ons. Most console makers allow third-party accessories but provide little to no official cooperation or guarantees of quality in most cases. Sony's approach potentially ensures that third-party PlayStation extras should work as well as official hardware.
