To be honest every platform is good for indie games, the more platforms, the more money they get. Of course some don't wanna embrace them...

I hope every indies that i buy on PS4 will be cross-buy to my Vita

that's kind of a need feature for me! when they say always connected and social features the first thing that pops to my mind is X-game PS4/Vita/PS3

I'm concerned about the Vita, I had a little chat with Sahid in twitter a couple of days ago and he doesn't realize that none of us paid $250-$300 to play Indie games, most of us bought it because Sony promised us a PS3 on the go, and don't get me wrong here, i love indie games but i can play these games on my pc and my phone.

Sahid has done an exceptional job but he's not keeping a balance between indies and AAA and I think its because he's into games development right now and he feels identified with indie devs so he wants to make indie games something big, and that cool but going full indie games isn't the right way.

If i'd know that this was going to happen i'd never bought a PSV and I don't regret of buying it, because i've had tons of fun and still having but 90% of my games are imported because we get nothing but lazy ports and indie games while Japan gets all the awesome games that never will get localized. I love my Vita but if nothing good besides KZ and Tearaway comes out this year i'd probably sell it by the next year.

I guess sometimes people have to change their strategy with hope to inspire both the developers & the consumers

Vita is a powerful little device,even though i like Indie games i can play them on any phone or handheld,the system needs support from big publishers.

I want to play that one game that Conan O'Brien was thinking of when Major Nelson was talking to him. I guess its a PS4 game tho.
