“Very Cool Stuff Coming up for the Vita,” Sony is “THE Best Company” for Indie Devs

Keeping the teases rolling for a possibly huge E3 for the PlayStation Vita, Victor Lucas (EP Daily, Reviews on the Run) tweeted that he has “seen some very cool stuff coming up for the Vita.” - PSLS (Class of Heroes 2, DuckTales Remastered, Life of Pixel, Madden NFL 25, PS Vita, PS3, Remember Me, Velocity Ultra, Xbox 360)

"Sony is “THE Best Company” for Indie Devs".
sorry, but is the PC.
Reborn  +   716d ago
Didn't know PC is a 'company'.

Calm down, they're just implying Sony are dealing with indies well. Which is good news for gamers.

Not sure if the disagrees are because you called PC a company or if N4G is completely retarded. PC is certainly the best Platform for Indie developers, always have been and probably will be for a long time yet.
Larry L  +   716d ago
PC is obviously the best platform to besically do whatever you want to do with complete freedom, even infringing on other companies products as long as it's given away for free. But is PC the best platform for making money? I think that's a completely different story. And PSN may indeed be the best platform for that.

Hasn't PSN had the most digital sales of any other digital games platforms? I thought I heard a few devs mention having the highest sales on PSN. ANd also, when one of these Indie devs work with Sony, they also get some nice advertising along with it. So it's a great platform to start on to get your product noticed, whereas on Steam and Live, things tend to get more lost in the shuffle, they seldom have the spotlight on them. They get that with Sony. At least that's the idea I get from interviews I've read.

@Larry L

I would say PC is equally as good for making money but either way it's great that Sony are making this a prime focus.

Too many times have I seen huge games, overhyped and ended up being visually nice to look at but a big dull drag to play. A lot of Indie developers make amazingly fun games and it's great that we may get to see more from them.

lol u moron

Lot of Indy games have trouble finding a market. Every time a new game is added to the PSN, it's "at the top of the list" for at least a week... which makes indy games much more high-profile than those released on Steam or GOG or wherever.

Hey Animavicion you were "owned!"
ftwrthtx  +   716d ago
We need more stuff for the Vita, no doubt.
bothebo  +   716d ago
Although I would argue indie titles aren't the stuff we need
Chaostar  +   715d ago
I'm glad you don't get to decide what we need, indie games are great.
violents  +   715d ago
I agree with bothebo, Indie titles are nice but most of the indie games I've tried aren't really my style, I would rather have the big budget AAA titles, although some indie games are really good.

Different strokes for different folks!!

"Sony is “THE Best Company” for Indie Devs".

Until Tuesday.

Well i've been hearing the opposite.M$ has been getting slammed left &right by indie developers.

@Hano there there i know you could't afford a vita so you opted for a cheaper piece of hardware the 3DS.So if you need the need to let out your anger i'm here.

Poor you, you can't afford 3DS games so you get a Vita for the main titles that hit PS+ and the bargain bin within 5 days.

I'm here if you need to let your anger out.

"Well i've been hearing the opposite.M$ has been getting slammed left &right by indie developers."

Then why does xbl have more indie support? Like I said that all changes next week.next xbox will have plenty of indie support.

@Belking

"Then why does xbl get more indie support?"

That's a good question, though the veracity is a bit dubious, when you have indie games like FEZ not getting fixed because MS wants money for every update.
TrendyGamers  +   716d ago
I don't think Tuesday will have much to do with indies, more with bigger titles.
E2S  +   716d ago
not until indies make Kinect games
XabiDaChosenOne  +   716d ago
Lol I am loving the optimism coming from the 360 camp, I hope Microsoft doesn't disappoint.

Pillsbury1  +   716d ago
There is still so much potential for the vita, can't wait to see what comes next from Sony.
josephayal  +   716d ago
i'm so excited, My PS Vita has def. collected some dust in terms of being a gaming handheld
TheGrimOfDeath  +   715d ago
Then why haven't you been playing the great games that are already out?
PSVita_FTW  +   714d ago
to all the disagreers, josephayal's comment is referring to that he/she's been playing his/her psvita a lot and dust has gone on his/her psvita as he/she's been playing it.
Agent_hitman  +   716d ago
Good thing developers keep praising Sony these days.
Kingthrash360  +   716d ago
some how my vita is doing the cabbage patch......awsome.

go vita.
Williamson  +   716d ago
Good to know since I love my vita! All this indie love with the big e3 the vita is rumored to have will make me happy.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   716d ago
If there is a price cut and exclusive FF or some other notable game I want I will probably buy a Vita. As of now there's at least 4 games I want to play on Vita.

b_one  +   715d ago
Velocity ultra is a must have :)
Tontus  +   715d ago
Indie games won't save the Vita...

It needs Gran Turismo, God of War, Grand Theft Auto, another Assassin's Creed, proper Call of duty and an Elder Scrolls game for the west and a Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy, Monster Hunter for the east.

If they release a few of the games above during the next 2 years the Vita can have a positive turnaround.

An Infamous, Bioshock and cool new IPs will help a lot too.
