Sony Computer Entertainment has awarded prizes to three students studying at Abertay University, Scotland, in recognition of their outstanding work on console game development.

The university began teaching console game programming in 1998, focusing on the PlayStation console. The course was redesigned in 2002 to concentrate on the PS2 console, using PlayStation2-Linux development kits donated by Sony.

Students are introduced to console game programming during the second year of their course, and the module culminates with the creation of a computer game. The best three are awarded prizes by Sony.
