I wouldn't say that Sony showed up early, I would say Sony threw the party

An MS is the guy that drank to much and threw up everywhere? lol jk

To my understanding MS supported indies better than the PS3 with the 360. The problem is that MS offer a great platform for indies with the X1 but Sony were quick to get to them with the PS4 before MS. This is what Mike is referring to and we will probably see MS catch up on the indies front down the line.

It's great news for the indie scene

And the wii u is the shy, uncomfortable nerd in the corner, that no one cares about so it speaks to itself about committing suicide.

"To my understanding MS supported indies better than the PS3 with the 360."

well many people seem to ignore playstation Home for a platform for indies when talking about both companies supporting indie developer's and without taking into account playstation Home , they are ignoring a very large indie platform on playstation. right now there are over 600+ games on playstation Home all from indie developer's inside playstation Home. Than of course you have playsttation Mobile as also another platform, Playstation Mini's for indie developer's. that is before getting to playstation 3 games themselves.

i would say its closer than what many think, and as a matter of fact Sony just may edge out Microsoft due to having more than just one system for indie developers to make games for. in this part of the Market.

@All WEll it's clear what the people in the know like and think, however It'll be interesting to see what the important people think.

By that I mean the casual gamers.

Gamingcapacity1658d ago


Never really thought of it like that but you are right. Didn't realise that there were 600 games within Home.

Didnt indie devs comment on how badly they were treated by MS plus the fees just to patch their games?

Gamingcapacity1657d ago

@DMC Johnathan Blow has something against MS. Even though they were put his game (Braid) onto console first. I wonder what they did to him?

I have to disagree.

Like a lot of people, I think the "Xbone" has the far better lineup.

And well prepared! unlike others with their twists and turns.

Sony just went out and invited everyone to have a party.

Sony was pro-active and is one step ahead again.
