Net Yaroze The Net Yaroze is a development kit for the PlayStation video game console. It was a promotion by Sony Computer Entertainment to computer programming hobbyists in 1997. Yarōze means "Let's do it together!".

For about $750 USD, the Net Yaroze package would contain a special black-colored debugging PlayStation unit with documentation, software, and no regional lockout. The user still had to provide a personal computer (IBM-PC or Macintosh; NEC PC-9801 was also supported in Japan) to write the computer code, compile it, and send the program to the PlayStation.
