Oddworld Inhabitants: PS4 [is] incredibly easy to develop for...

"PS4 seems like a fantastic system, we’ve had kits for a while, and it is as people say, incredibly easy to develop for, as it is a lot closer to a PC system than ever before. Some of the ideas Sony have for the way it all works are truly inspiring and we are happy to be working with them again." (Dev, Next-Gen, Oddworld Stranger’s Wrath HD, Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee – New ‘n’ Tasty, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, PC, PS Vita, PS3, PS4)

Sonys back in full force with majority of developers backing them gonna be alot like PS1/PS2 days onslaught of games.

@GribbleGrunger-True competition is alot stronger than before but Sony has a advantage with the easy to develop hardware,great relationships with developers,brand recognition.Ball is there court just how well they market the PS4 something they been lacking with this generation.

I'll agree but only because I want to be optimistic. Those were heady days of fewer competitors and delivery points ... We can dream though, eh? :)

this was an obvious
direction for sony to go. They couldnt take the chance of creating another difficult platform to develop for. they had to make the wise choice and go with the industry on this one.

It was either them or MS that would get the industry support for ease of use. MS already was taking that praise with the 360 and sony was not about to let them take it again in the next round.

Very smart on sony's part. very smart indeed.

quote from the article : Now we are working on PS4 and are incredibly excited by that prospect for the future. We’ve had no communication at all with Microsoft on their new system, so I really can’t comment on that at all. But PS4 seems like a fantastic system

Wow, if that quote is really true that doesn't look good.

Guess there won't be any games from JAW for MS's new console any time soon.

Maybe that did something to piss MS off like not releasing a game of the same quality as the ps3 version.

If this is true why the hell games for ps4 cost 50 pounds,not 40?
Nitrowolf2  +   772d ago
developers don't set those prices, really it's the publishers (well there's more to it than that).

I believe there's also a business law where all these guys set the standard pricing. Not sure.

On your train of thought developers make the same"or" smaller games for less money...

I rather have them spend the same amount of time into them so they'll pack more content and advance features.

because when a new gen starts, games are always more expensive.
remember the price of a ps3 launch title?
Why o why  +   771d ago
sony musta been on the charm offensive when meeting and conversing with devs over the past 8 months or longer. Most devs seem extremely positive...maybe its just relief they dont have to learn something foreign again either way its all good.

I just can't wait to see the realism of a fart/giggle button in next-gen definition.

I can't wait to see the ads for the Kinect version where you have to do it instead of the controller.

Scissorman82  +   771d ago
It's because Microsoft doesn't have a new system...

Allow me to summarize Sony's actions of late:

sony got it right this time. i want a PS4 NOW!
strickers  +   771d ago
I keep hearing " I've had no contact with MS" from devs . Blow said it too .
Sony seem to be courting the hardcore , indie and middle devs. Could be smart . They can make big stuff themselves and big 3rd party want to be on all formats.

A lot of gamers seem to be making way to much from said quote. They can't say nothing anyways about the new xbox even if they wanted to. Well atleast til the new xbox is revealed.
medziarz  +   771d ago
Looks like Sony might have caught Microsoft with their pants down, jacking off.
OrionNoctis  +   771d ago
after a gen with developers criticism about the ps3 architecture its a very pleasant change that Sony made it right, we are in for a very awesome next gen and i personaly cant wait!

Funny how things have come full circle for Oddworld Inhabitants.

Know what I want? I want a new Battle Arena Toshinden, More Odd World with Munch (not the stranger) and Jumping Flash.
Scissorman82  +   771d ago
Stranger was pretty badass, but it isn't a part of the main Quintology of Oddworld games. So yeah, more Abe, please! ^_^
