Codeplay announced the launch of VectorC {PS2:VU}. Here's a clip from the press release:

" LONDON, UK - 20th March, 2002 - Codeplay announced the release of VectorC {PS2:VU}, the world's first PlayStation®2 vector unit C/C++ compiler. VectorC {PS2:VU} will allow PlayStation®2 games to be developed easier, faster and with more features than previously possible.

The vector units typically run small low-level programs to perform the computationally intensive routines that are required in today's demanding entertainment software. Prior to VectorC {PS2:VU}, the development process was time consuming because of the requirement to write complex custom vector unit assembly language. "
