Indie Dev Talks PlayStation Versus Xbox Development

When Brian Provinciano concocted his home-grown game Retro City Rampage and started putting it out on various platforms, he caught a glimpse into what it’s like to work with three gigantic gaming companies: Sony, Microsoft and Steam. In a conversation with IGN – facilitated by Sony in anticipation of a couple of talks he’s giving at GDC concerning PlayStation Vita development – he spoke about what it was like dealing with each corporation.

The story is too old to be commented.

Overall, in terms of Third Party, Second Party or First Party Developer Creative Freedom, Sony is the the best partner.

I never felt any affiliation with any company beside sony. They have alays brought me the best gaming experiences and I truly feel connected to them and wish for them to succeed. I want to work for them someday.

So basicly, Sony lets you release it when you want to, no matter who you are going up against that week, and Microsoft has slots that games are released in but you have no say so when it's released.

He said nothing about dev kits, with the exception of the Vita as he didn't know it was going to be that easy. Good job Sony on that part.

Steam was easy as pie.

I still have never heard of the game.

It goes like this Valve >>>>> Sony >> Microsoft.

If you never heard of Retro City Rampage, you should give it a try on XBLA, PSN or PC, because it's a big bunch of fun.
Just imagine a retro GTA-like game with tons of references and easter eggs from video games (Super Mario, Sonic The Hedgehog, Metal Gear Solid,...) and movies / TV shows (Back From The Future, The Dark Knight, TMNT, The A-Team,...).

It's really a great game, no matter which console you prefer to play with.

Xbox gamers are falling on hard times what with all of these pro-Sony articles...

Good thing I'm most likely going to get a PS4. Second Sun on launch, man :)

N4G is a pro-Sony site so of course there are going to be more pro-Sony articles.

Obvious is obvious
