PlayStation's New Indie Focus

Looking at the amount of money spent on making and marketing AAA console games, it’s easy to see a company like Sony as an amorphous entity, each employee merely another node of the hive mind. Even incredibly personal games like Journey and PixelJunk Eden don't say much about the individuals who made them. But over the past year, Sony’s focus has changed. Instead of cultivating independent developers internally, as was done with ThatGameCompany, PixelJunk and Giant Sparrow, Sony is reaching out to developers like Super Crate Box developer Vlambeer or The Witness creator Jonathan Blow – people who have already achieved success independently on iOS or PC – and bringing them over to PlayStation. (Indie, PS Vita, PS3, PS4)

The new middle class of game is growing but people don't see it yet.

AAA games will slowly scale back to middle money type games where they can be more efficient with their spending.
