PS4 boss: big game companies are more conservative

T3: Shuhei Yoshida, PS4 games boss and star of Sony's Xbox-teasing 'sharing' YouTube viral, says the PlayStation's renewed focus on independent developers is a reaction to the industry's widespread conservatism. (Industry, Sony)

Microsoft is being ridiculous. Some people like their freedom, and prefer not to be tied to a company. But the independent developers still manage to come up with good games. Sony's thinking about everyone here, not just the company itself.

maybe, just maybe, MS have the deal with big publishers, so it force indie have to find the publisher to be able publish thier game on its platform

so the publishers can choice if they want to publish that indie game or not, if they feel that indie game will be a threat for their next AAA they will ignore them

Indie is the perfect partner, not a threat :)

Big developers are being too conservative and careful with their games. Afraid to try fresh and new things, so they stick with sequels and proven ips. That's why I'm slowing becoming more interested in indie games rather than these COD clones and recycled ideals that AAA devs keep putting out.

big developers dont want to risk losing millions of dollars and that STOPS them from making unique and fresh content as Yoshida said

well THAT STOPS MOST OF THEM(cough.. cough..Activision cough.. call of cough.. ), NOT ALL OF THEM (cough..Naughty Dog)

Conservative to the extent that they continue to erode our consumer rights in order to maintain their monopoly, good on Sony for promoting indie developers and lets hope the big publishers don't buy them all out and drain them of all their creativity.

I think it's just a natural response and proves that you aren't a fanboy of one platform. Sony is saying and doing some good stuff right now and it is okay to like what they are saying.

This is almost like saying that they have no interest in allowing EA or Activision or any major game publisher to dictate their actions or gain too much power on their platform so they are seeking to bring in more indie developers so they aren't dependent upon one type of game type or company. That's a very good idea, if they where relying heavily on EA there is no way they could take the stance they did.
