Why is PlayStation's most prolific indie now backing Wii U?

It would have been easy to imagine that Curve Studios' next major project would be destined for PlayStation.

After all, the London developer kept itself busy last year porting a trio of acclaimed indie games (Thomas Was Alone, Lone Survivor and Proteus) to PS3 and Vita.

Maybe they are going to the one that offers them the most.

you're on n4g. any pro-PC, nintendo, or microsoft comment will get disagrees. the fans of this site are running it into the ground

TheTowelBoy1536d ago

@zelda I agree and I'm even pro Sony at the moment. It's getting to the point where it's a site I just.. don't want to come to, but it has news faster than, say, Ign so I keep coming back :/

thezeldadoth1536d ago (Edited 1536d ago )

@towelboy. the best thing about going to other sites like pcgamer, dualshockers, ign, is that there is a larger percentage of actual news, rather than occasional news buried in fanboy hate articles. so while you might not see something for a few hours, it certainly is refreshing to not have to scroll through all the BS to see it and refreshing to see differing opinions and fans from all three companies rather than one.

I thought Nintendo wasn't going to attend E3 this year or was that just a rumor?

kevinsheeks1536d ago

I wish this was a site were everyone could enjoy news about their respective consoles sadly sony users here won't let that happen

best to just keep any positive comments to yourself

Correct - the gamers. Look at what the top indie devs had to say of Wii U, Nintendo and Nintendo gamers -

" the people who hang out there are laidback, knowledgeable and friendly, and it hasn’t been invaded by greedy, cheapskate (developer) conquistadores who insist on trading glass beads for gold, making shallow games with a minimum of effort and yearning to race us to the bottom."

“Let’s hope the others don’t come here, let them slug it out on mobile or Steam. This is Paradise: most everything here is good, the gamers are REAL gamers who pay for quality"

Nintendo gamers are full of swag and demand quality... Sony and Xbox gamers ... not so much.

"Maybe they are going to the one that offers them the most"

How does Nintendo offer them more than Sony's consoles?
Some of their games have been the most successful on the Playstation Vita for a start. Read the article and you will find a direct quote from the developer. He also says they're going to the WiiU because there's no competition on the platform. Not exactly something to shout about in defense of the WiiU now is it.

See the post directly above yours.

Before Sony they made  Fluidity for the Wii and Spin Cycle for the 3ds it's not that they're prolific Sony indies their last projects where just on Sony's platform

After reading the whole piece it gives a great insight how developers work with Nintendo and the way they process things i already read this before but it's nice to see that it's almost the same reaction

marloc_x1536d ago

They see the writing on the wall..

RiPPn1536d ago

I see a troll writing on the comments wall.

ZainreFang1536d ago

Cause people go insane whenever a Wii U exclusive is announced. Easy publicity because of gamers telling each other that Wii U never gets any games ever.

I wouldnt say Curve is Sonys most prolific Indie, id say thats Housemarque who made Superstardust and Rezogun, or maybe even Drinkbox who made Guacemele and Tales from SpaceMutant Blobs.

Not that I dont like Curve's games I think think saying their Sonys most prolific indie is a bit of a stretch.

chrisgay1536d ago

"Prolific" as an adjective is associated with quantity, not quality. 3 games in a year is pretty prolific.
