A great way to show indie games without any of the bigger AAA games possibly stealing the spotlight.

At this rate, Indies on PS4 are going to be just as relevant as the bigger retail games.

Fantastic news.

also Sony has the Pub fund:

Sony also recently announced that the indie-friendly Unity Engine is being rolled out for all its platforms: PS Mobile, PS Vita, PS3, and PS4. Between the Pub Fund and Unity, it’s never been a better time to develop indie games for Sony.

The Pub Fund itself is an interesting sort of creativity incubator. Sony basically gives developers royalties up front so that they can fund their games. In return, Sony gets either full exclusivity or timed exclusivity. They don’t own the developer and they only work from one game to the next, avoiding any long-term contracts.

As you can see Sony is going out of their way to support indie developer's no matter what region they are in.
