Sony Net Yaroze - SCPH-3001

Sony released the Yaroze ("let's do it together" or "let's work together" in Japanese) as a home development system for playstation enthusiasts. Support was done via a secure web site, with code freely exchanged between members of the Net Yaroze system. Several promising projects emerged from this bold experiment, most notable being Devil Dice (Xai). Unfortunantely, Sony neglected the Yaroze, and finally support was fully withdrawn.
