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.

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.
DeadIIIRed  +   458d ago
Agree completely. The more market share that indies can grab, the more pressure is pushed on big studios to focus on actual innovation.
MizTv  +   458d ago
Mine is the games
PirateThom  +   458d ago
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
NukaCola  +   458d ago
Offline and anywhere in the world! The PS4 looks to be the perfect console.
captain_slow82  +   458d ago
my fav feature is the system as a whole if that counts?

Support from Indie games cause they can't afford exclusives in the long run.
cleft5  +   458d ago
The Last of Us and Beyond Two Souls says hi.
PigPen  +   458d 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.
Hicken  +   458d ago
The Last of Us is by Naughty Dog, a first party studio. And Quantic Dream is first party in all but contract.

@PigPen

Xbox - 15 exclusives and 8 of them new IPs

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

BA BOOM!

sony has had more exclusive games than microsoft has had pigpen
PigPen  +   458d 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.
TIER1xWOLFPACKx  +   458d 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
PigPen  +   458d 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.
solidjun5  +   458d ago
Pigpen...back to the bridge troll.
PirateThom  +   458d 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.

This post is amusing.
BABY-JEDI  +   458d ago
It's kind of sad that MS feel the need to scalp small indie developers..

TIER1xWOLFPACKx  +   458d ago
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
PigPen  +   458d 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.

Awesome answer, really love the direction Sony is going in.
PositiveEmotions  +   458d ago
Well thats cool i hope they bring classics back like oddworld.

I also hope spyro the dragon makes a come back.
loulou  +   458d ago
i loved the first two oddworlds on the ps1 classics.

i want to see crash team racing comeback for both xbox 1 and ps4 though
panbit86  +   458d ago
Looks like they will have MAJOR support from indie devs this gen! And with all the help from big first party studios i think we are in for a treat! :)
DxTrixterz  +   458d ago
But what about third party studios?
loulou  +   458d ago
dxtrixter

are you new around here.? if you are i will fill you in. only exclusives matter on n4g. if aint exclusive, and if it aint exclusive to sony, then it aint worth playing.

now all of sudden indies are the new second most important thing on n4g.
panbit86  +   458d ago
I think they won't have a problem with them. They have good partnerships and with such a powerful console and a huge install base nobody will ignore them!
I hope for some good third party exclusives like last gen's Heavenly Sword though!
plaZeHD  +   458d ago
Naughty Dog. That's my favorite feature of the Playstation 4.
BABY-JEDI  +   458d ago
I'm really looking forward to what ND develop for the new system. Could potentially be mind blowing with mind blowing warnings put on every game package LoL. Just like Scanners...
FarCryLover182  +   458d ago
I am very excited for these indie games that are coming out. Some of them will hopefully reignite the spark in some genres. That indie survival horror game looks to be pure terror like games from early 2000's delivered.
Lord_Frieza  +   458d ago
my favourite feature is that the playstation logo has remained the same since the original playstation release
