Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) has announced an exclusive game development deal with LightBox Interactive, a new software development company. It’s formed by former Incognito Entertainment Studio Director, Dylan Jobe.
Under the agreement, LightBox Interactive is signed on for a multi-year, multi-title deal to create exclusive software titles for the PlayStation platforms.
Dylan Jobe, the new president of LightBox Interactive, is known for directing the multiplayer title Warhawk, an exclusive PlayStation 3 (PS3) system title that was first to deliver consumers a game on both Blu-ray Disc and as a download on PlayStation Network.
Sony says that the cumulative number of registered accounts on PlayStation Network worldwide has exceeded 20 million as of Feb. 20. It was launched in Nov. 2006.

Since its launch, says the company, PlayStation Network has expanded its services to over 55 countries and regions around the globe.
Jobe is also known for his work on the titles War of the Monsters and Twisted Metal: Black for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system.
