Sony forced you to act, Microsoft, and now you're following the leader. That's a good thing.

Oh how things can change in a twinkling of an eye.

I think sony has very very little to do with MS choosing to give indie developers kits and making concessions to them that they should have been doing from the beginning and more of the actually developers forcing MS hand. Like it was said earlier, your giving Sony way to much credit on this one but I'm sure you credit Sony for finding a killing Usama Bin Laden cause your a Sony fanboy and they can do no wrong in your eyes also.

M$ tried to make a cartel out of the gaming market which went completely against the free spirit of Indie gaming!

M$'s courting of Indies now is not completely sincere on their part as their hands were forced in part by the policies of its main competitor whom just happens to be SONY!!

It is mainly down to Indies in that they were willing to choose the platform that best suited their products, so it is they whom deserve credit!

What a load of rubbish you spout on here, another sony troll always in xbox articles talking rubbish. If you arent interested in getting the console why do you spend so much of your time in xbox related threads.

It goes back to 360, PS3 all formats.... Sony treated us as door mats..... 'Get a second job' if you want to buy our PS3...... Since then Sony has had to claw back consumers...... But they are a angelic company, have no interest in profits.... And I guess PS4 has indie developers by the aircraft carrier load....

Translation: The Indie Developer Program has received a few applications. They're all flocking to Sony.

Yeah, because only a few developers would want to sign up and get two kits for free.....what indie developer wants to have revenue coming from two consoles, when they are better off with just one. :-/

Oh yeah, if they are now flocking to Sony.....should we assume they were not with Sony before? And the next question would be, why were they not?

Please do not talk sense on this site, the xbox detractors are many and varied with illogical comments, rumour and totally made up nonsense that jsut goes round and round. You will never get them to see common sense, its a waste of time trying
