8 reasons Sony are getting the next generation right with PS4

Pushing Indie


It’s no coincidence that PS3 and Vita are now happily drowning in all kinds of indie goodness like Hotline Miami and Thomas Was Alone. Sony’s passion for indie development was made abundantly clear when Jonathan Blow wandered onto the stage with his PS4 exclusive The Witness. The new easy submissions procedure – ie, no red tape – combined with the Sony Pub Fund push means developers all over the world can easily submit their titles for next gen PSN and it’s an absurdly exciting prospect. As our gaming habits change – oh wait, you have a dog now? All is forgiven! – titles produced by dev teams of all sizes make for a potential only previously seen on PC. Bring on Blacklight Retribution, Primal Carnage Genesis and a shiny indie future.
