My favourite feature is share.

Personally i don't find the share button that interesting. As for indies...
I see a big problem with the self publishing on indie games. There is going to be a great amount of crap indie games on the PS4, and that might overshadow the few good indie games worth playing.

Sony better have some type of quality control for indie games.

I think you need to read up on it more. It's not gonna be like an app store.

DxTrixterz1991d ago

Being able to upload game footage from PS4 directly into Youtube is a dream for me. I've always wanted to put some game videos on my youtube channel but I can't because I don't have any recording hardware.

good. some of my fav games the last couple years on PC have been indies. i want indies on as many platforms as possible. AAA titles have been lacking, indies are true art forms that gamers should experience.

DeadIIIRed1990d ago

Agree completely. The more market share that indies can grab, the more pressure is pushed on big studios to focus on actual innovation.

The Vita is a fantastic indie platform and I'm glad to see this continue with the PS4 because it really will allow for some unique games.

Maybe Futurlab will make a Velocity Ultra HD.

My favorite feature is that it plays games

NukaCola1990d ago

Offline and anywhere in the world! The PS4 looks to be the perfect console.

captain_slow821991d ago

my fav feature is the system as a whole if that counts?

PigPen1991d ago

Support from Indie games cause they can't afford exclusives in the long run.

cleft51991d ago

The Last of Us and Beyond Two Souls says hi.

PigPen1991d ago

That's 2nd party developers that only support Sony. I want them to lock a 3 game exclusive like what Nintendo did with Sega. Are announce spending a billion dollars on games with 15 games and 8 of them exclusives like Microsoft. Sony doesn't have that type of money.

Hicken1991d ago

The Last of Us is by Naughty Dog, a first party studio. And Quantic Dream is first party in all but contract.

Xbox - 15 exclusives and 8 of them new IPs

PS4 - 30 exclusives, 20 out in first year, 15 of them new IP

sony has had more exclusive games than microsoft has had pigpen

PigPen1991d ago

That may no longer be the case cause Microsost and Nintendo is stepping their game up. Nintendo already has more exclusives then both next gen consoles.

TIER1xWOLFPACKx1991d ago

then why is it pigpen sony has like 30-40 exclusives so far that are coming out for the first fiscal year for the ps4

PigPen1990d ago

That's Sony hype, you know to get people excited. It's also a overstatement and I dare you to name those 30-40 exclusives that Sony has. Sony is broke and has a junk status rating.

solidjun51990d ago

Pigpen...back to the bridge troll.

PirateThom1991d ago

Every AAA developer started as an indie and the people making indie games today will be making the AAA franchises of tomorrow.

Treat them well now and they'll remember when it comes to who to side with or who will get first refusal when it comes to an ambitious big title.

In any case, thatgamecompany are an independent developer and made one of the most critically acclaimed games of all time in Journey.

So, I think courting the indies is fantastic.

BABY-JEDI1990d ago

It's kind of sad that MS feel the need to scalp small indie developers..

no pig pen they have 30-40 they have showed about 7 of them there not just going to show everything and then have nothing else left to show for the year i would like to see you name the supposed 30 exclusives microsoft has go on

PigPen1990d ago (Edited 1990d ago )

Ha Ha Ha Ha, that is just so funny. I don't think you really believe that yourself so you definitely can't sell it to me. You can't see what Sony done. Microsoft says they will spend a billion dollars toward games with 15 games and 8 of them exclusives. Sony: PS4 has 30-40 exclusives to try and take the steam from Microsoft. I see a lot of Sony fanboys owning two consoles this gen. They will run out and buy the PS4 but then see the other consoles getting more and more exclusives and give in. Nintendo having a 3 game exclusive with Sega and also Bayonetta 2, they definitely have the most exclusive games as of now. You can fact check what I said cause I will fact check this 30-40 game exclusive Sony claims.
