Indie Developers Speak Out on PS4 Development

Tibitoski said “I think what Sony is looking to do is have a large library of games that come from varying walks of life. They want to bring variety to their platforms so that any audience could find something to love about it. I also think it was a smart move on their part with it being a new console.”

The story is too old to be commented.

I love indie games they do the things that the big publishers are affraid to do or think will fail.

Some of the best games i played so far this year have been indies like Guacamelee,Hotline Miami and Cube World to name a few.

Already cant wait for Octodad,Assault Android Cactus,Transistor,Hotline Miami 2,Shovelknight,Hyper light drifter and Resogun.

Sony's open arms approach to indies is great and refreshing for console gaming. PS4 is looking like it'll have a diverse library of AAA titles and indies. November 15th can;t come any sooner.

Tibitoski said - ""They treat their devs really well and if we ever have any problems, I can just text our account manager""

""To our surprise, it only took about four weeks of part-time work from one of our programmers, Kevin Geisler, to get the game running on PS4.”""

""Simply put, it’s the smartest development environment that we’ve ever seen,”"" - Lanning said

"""“This is a system that’s going to allow innovation to happen faster and cheaper,"""

pretty awesome that all those developers are pretty much saying the same thing about ps4
Add this to the list of Developers who are saying the same thing about ps4
sony really did every thing right with ps4 hardware
the build the most powerful console and the much easier to develop for
i really hard and impossible to find a single developer saying they any thing bad about ps4

But but but who cares about cheap indie games...

Person who says "indie games are crap and cheap" is not a gamer his a corporate tool...

Game over!

Sony have opened the flood gates and all these tons of titles will create a very healthy and full of variety library of games.

The next big Indies could become the next "naughty dog " in future generations.

Insert coin!

@ Garos

if Sony open the flood gates of variety then we should see more variety than first person shooters,multi-online player games then. if SONY going BIG then everyone should be happy,from hardcore to casual gamers.

not everyone like military,zombie,open world games.

my bag is RPG'S,PLATFORMERS,RACING, SIDE SCROLLING GAMES PS4 need more those type of games as well.

Most interesting part.

“We didn’t witness much support for our games on the 360 digital platform. In fact, we got shut out, and nothing on that front appears to be changing,” Lanning reflected. “Clearly, the Xbox 360 turned out to be a great platform for some indies, but for others the policies and practices created significant incompatibilities that amounted to total shut out.”

I think having a wide range of game genres was pretty much Sonys PS3 policy. OK, many weren't big sellers but at least the library was/is diverse.

Kingthrash3601073d ago

i can tell this will be a bright generation for sony. theyve changed alot since ps3 launch. they learned the hard way thats for sure but at least theyve learned. the indie love is icing on a very great cake.

isarai1073d ago

It's going to be great being a PS4 owner :)

serratos271073d ago

Definitely! Glad I have a lot of free time. More gaming ;)

Im hoping we see PS4 upgrades of some Ipad games. The iPad has a slew of indie flight combat games that are awesome, that would make incredible PS4 titles. Not to mention, Gamelofts entire library.
