Real Boxing Vita Dev: Sony Are "Really Supportive To Indie Developers," But "Challenging"

Dealspwn.com reports: "Sony's concrete support of the burgeoning indie development scene is common knowledge, and Vivid Games have added their voices to praise the console manufacturer for their continued assistance with Real Boxing Vita. However, they're apparently also very hands-on during the development process and occasionally "challenging" to work with." (PS Vita, Real Boxing)

This may be to assure that crap software doesnt make it to their already struggling Vita. Cant really fault them for that, and as a Vita owner i actually like it if this is the case for the "hands on" from Sony.
Blues Cowboy  +   411d ago
Yep, this is it. As the article editorial says: "Supporting indie games but seeking quality in return? Sounds more than fair to us."

Sony lets indies pub via PlayStation Mobile, but it's more than fair to give assistance and demand a quality product in return when providing PSN support IMO.

Sony wants Indie to make AAA Games
Goro  +   411d ago
I want some AAA games, not just indies...don't get me wrong, i like indies but not to the stage where that's all that is being made on Vita

Warframe is indie but its triple a quality it depends on the game really.
Blues Cowboy  +   411d ago
You hit the nail on the head dcj0524. The term "indie" is evolving all the time, and is bringing us some of the best games on all platforms - period. Can't wait to see where it takes us.

Also, erm, I just want to play stuff on Vita. While the big publishers ignore it, good on those indies who see potential in the platform, and Sony for incentivising them to develop for it.

We'll take what we can get. If the userbase starts growing because of the indie games to point where other developers jump on board, then maybe we will see GTA and Bioshock. But for now, we aren't getting those games so indies are keeping the Vita afloat. Thats a good thing.

Quality control and nothing more--- we dont want garbage that plague ios and android. Whats truly challenging is finding a gem in one of those os's.

So you're admitting it HAS some?

Ladies and gentlemen, I think history just got made.

"So you're admitting it HAS some?"

Yea, but apparently they are unwanted. Sony is not doing a good job with this device as they should.
_FantasmA_  +   410d ago
Well only those who make crappy, rushed games need to worry. I wish they would have backhanded Nstigate aka Nihilistic when they released their two decent but underdeveloped games.
