Morgan Haro Defends Indie Games on PS Plus, Perfectly Explains PlayStation Philosophy

"But there’s also Morgan Haro, Community Manager for PlayStation Digital Platforms, who updates readers each week with the PlayStation Plus details, and then must listen to all the hate from readers who don’t like the choices or are disappointed by their PS+ membership." - PSLS (PS Vita, PS3)

People are whiners, just be happy this program is available at all...

Yeah, I get a lot of stuff I already own, or am not that interested in. Don't hear me complaining, as I know others might not have these games or would like to play them.

And PS+ members are winners.

There'll be more AAA Games with the easiness of PS4 platform.

I don't remember the last time I bought a game.

I agree, it's a great way to put up amazing games that some gamers have missed out on. Plus what you get for the price is more than worth it, I know there's people that stopped buying games or are buying less with this service. And people that go by that are saving up hundreds of dollars. They might not get to choose what games they get but what Sony chooses to be put on Playstation Plus free games so far are quality titles. Even if there's a game you already bought, it's not like they only give you 1 or 2 games at a time for one month. :P

you are so right. my favorite games ever are uncharted 2 and 3 and of course i had both at launch. but i was stoked to hear u3 is free on ps+ considering that many people who wouldn't otherwise play it now get to.

"Too much indie games. We can play all the indie games for free on our phones."

*facepalm*

no you can't.

Would you buy a $300 console to play indie games? End of story. This is the problem with the Vita.
bicfitness  +   522d ago
I have a Vita and 30 some odd games. Less than 5 are indie and I think that I got those for free from Plus. Please explain.
dcj0524  +   522d ago
I own 23 vita games. 6 are indie. Know what you're talking about.
ziggurcat  +   522d ago
... and how much is a smartphone?

try harder.

Which games do you own? I've been a Vita owner from day one and I can't say I in love with the software the Vita has. Here are the games I own:

Sly Coopers Thieves in Time
Gravity Rush
Wipeout
Uncharted
Dynasty Warriors Next
PSABR
Soul Sacrifice
Lord of Apocalypse
Unit 13
Ratchet and Clank FFA
Jak and Daxter HD Collection
Motorstorm RC
Resistance Burning Skies
LBPV
ACL
Disgaea 3
Sound Shapes
and about a dozen indie titles.

I'm merely upset with Sony's mindset going into the future. The focus cannot be on indie games if they want to bring content and sales to the system.

Throwing away the VITA's indie support won't magically create exclusive VITA "AAA" games.

It's better to have some extra mediocre games.

There are always gonna be whiners.

too many people complain, its a great service that offers a lot of games to play just relax and enjoy and shop whining

Plus is amazing.

Most people are actually nice. The problem is that the vocal minority is mostly a bunch of assholes who are never happy with anything and can only think about themselves. The comments on the PS Blog, week after week, show the same annoying people complaining about everything. I don't get why they keep subscribing to PS+ if they don't like the service.

I have a lot of games, and most of the titles we get for free with PS+ I already have. But, just as Snookies12 said in the first comment, I understand that many people out there may like it. This month, for example, there's nothing for me. I'm not a multiplayer shooter guy, and BF3 is definitely not my favorite game. But I know there are lots of people out there who are very happy with this one. So, why would I complain? Because PS+ is not completely focused on pleasing ME? That's just ridiculous.

The bang for the buck in PS+ is so ridiculously good that even if you get 2 games a year it's already paid for itself. And that's not counting Cloud saves, auto updates and other perks.

Most of the indie games available on Vita are not available on phones or tablets, oddly enough. That's a big factor. I LOVE the indie iine-up on Vita!

While I am disappointed with some of the PS+ offerings, I really can't complain. It introduced me to Sleeping Dogs, which was so good, I felt sad that I didn't support the dev last year when it came out. I didn't care about it before that, but after playing it, the game is so awesome and feels so polished that I was dumbfounded. I had a blast with that game, and even though it's pretty cheap by now, I think that experience was enough to say my PS+ membership has made me satisfied. But it doesn't end there. I also got Virtue's Last Reward! That's still around $40 in the GameStop near me. This game is awesome! Still playing it. It has like a bajillion texts, but when the story is so good, you don't care. And it's only 7 months into the year. 5 months left (time flies by fast, huh?), and there are sure to be gems found in PS+.

i think it's great that we see, or will be seeing, stuff like Limbo, Braid, Machinarium and Don't Starve.
they're a nice complement to the likes of Uncharted, Last of Us and Infamous.
