Sony needs to make a few key announcements at E3 to keep gamers interested.
Yeah, Indies no AAA
No AAA? Really. I do believe there should be some indie presence but needs to be a whole lot more AAA. Project Beast showing would rock.
The Last Guardian..Sony would win E3 with that title alone.
@gamedev i don't think they'll spend half their time talking about indies but I'm sure they'll take a few minutes to announce a new indie or two or show some gameplay.
Indies have already been announced, remember 1000 devs publishing and over 100 indies coming to PS4 Indies are small projects, not something you would see in E3 at all. I mean you should know that if you watched E3
Well sony did show a lot of indie games at last years e3 so it does happens.
@gamedev "indies are small project, not something you would see in E3 at all" did you watch sonys e3 last year?
Indies can be ANY independent developer, Arkane Studios, CDprojekt, Bungie, Epic, Crytek, Remedy, Team17 etc are ALL indie developers. I wish people would stop using the term 'indie' without actually understanding the word.
@geoff when people say indies they're referring to small independent studios. not huge, heavily funded studios that have the backing of the consoles
@ats1992 Sony showed indie initiative for PS4 in general, not individual indies games promoted @daniel2115 yes i did, read what i said above Geoff900 Errr show me where i said indies games cannot be from any developer??
@gamedev im not sure what I'm missing, this is exactly what you said "Indies have already been announced, remember 1000 devs publishing and over 100 indies coming to PS4 Indies are small projects, not something you would see in E3 at all. I mean you should know that if you watched E3" indies have already been announced but who says they won't announce more or show gameplay of a few of them? and to your second sentence, as i said before, they showed indies at e3 last year so obviously its not something you won't see at e3.
@daniel2115 indie means independent from major corporation and or investor, it doesn't mean that they are small or big.
You said "Indies are small projects", Indies aren't always small projects, the size of a developer doesn't automatically equate to a small project. Some small developers work on big projects, and some big developers work on small projects. Epic games* for instance have worked on Shadow Complex, as well as Gears of War. *Epic games is a independent developer.
@daniel Are you saying Sony are going to announce their continous support for the indie initiative for PS4 or are they going to promote indie games as individuals? Because what i am saying is that individual indie games won't be announced. And as i said, an indie initiative was promoted for the PS4, not individual indie titles. "no AAA titles and only indies" is basically saying Sony are going there to promote their PSN store. @Geoff900 You are a bit off but thats not what Indie means, there is a difference between Indie devs and Indie games Giant Sparrow is an indie dev company within Sony Santa Monica that has the backing of Sony(major corporation) and they make small indie projects for Playstation Consoles. Indie games are usually small projects made by Indie devs with hardly any backing but its when they get full backing and support from a publisher, corporation for a big project then it comes a support game usually AAA titles
Considering at last e3 they spotlighted indie games like don't starve and octodad, I don't see why they won't spotlight more indie games coming in the future. For sure they probably wouldn't have an indie developer take the stage to introduce their game but for sure they can announce some that are coming out as indie games are becoming really big now in the gaming scene.
“Indie Games are video games which are made by passionate game developers who typically publish their game on their own via the internet. Indie Games are typically not funded nor published under major labels and therefore the developers are not limited in their scope of creativity. Indie Games will typically stretch the boundaries of what has been done already and sometimes even what is commonly accepted as normal practice. The one thing that they all have in common is the level of passion poured into the game by their developer, as these games are made out of a desire to make a game rather than making money.” best "definition" that i was able to find of indie game. good article too http://www.indiegamemag.com...
Why do you think all of those indies were announced randomly last Wednesday? It's so they don't take up as much time at E3. I wouldn't mind 5 minutes dedicated to them at E3, but i want AAA's, that's what i expect when i think of E3. Indies are great void fillers between the big titles, but now it's time for big titles. Bring on E3.
I would like 5 minutes of indies...... Minecraft date for the Vita and 1 or 2 big games for it since I need to be real about Sony abandoning it.
Minecraft for Vita? I didn't even know this was being rumored. My life is over if that day comes.
It's coming soon. They showed it working on Vita and PS4 recently.
New game from GG, media molecule, SSM, project Morpheus, indie games, something from ND, project beast, QD new game, H1Z1, Deep Down, Destiny, Divison, the order, drive club, and that's all I can think at the moment.
Maybe something from London studio, bend or last guardian
Lmao, look at those disagrees.. Jealous fanboys can't stand seeing great games on rival's platform. ;-)
Unannounced games. That's all I want.
From the article: "Already in beta, this highly sought after feature is arguably the most anticipated part of this generation of consoles." No. Just, no. I'm looking forward to playing NEW games designed for the hardware that I spent 500 or 400 bucks for, not streaming games from previous generations.
Every year these over blown and over hyped conferences are a let down for me, full of empty, bloated, broken promises and faked cgi gameplay all delivered by geeky hosts who look terrified to be on stage. I fall into the same trap every year getting my hopes up, that game X or Y will be shown, only to find that i have to settle for a 45 second cgi trailer with no gameplay and a coming soon at the end and lo and behold several years later the game still has not released. I work in film and television and i am very critical of the overall amateurish production values of these shows, i have done a lot of live tv stuff and therefore fully take into consideration that things can go wrong and that developers are not by nature front of house presenters, so it would be beneficial to trim a lot of the sales talk numbers that send an audience to sleep and cut out showing games that don't pack an initial punch and show that stuff the following day. Also don't put certain developers onstage if they are uncomfortable handling an audience. I'm not calling for dancing showgirls or celebrities onstage but merely a raising of the bar in production values and that's directed at all the top players.
If it is fake gameplay, how did we get this? http://legendsk.com/wp-cont...
I guess they'll show some new The Order 1886 gameplay and a huge trailer (this game is coming in just a few months and we haven't seen a lot so far). Uncharted will get it's first real trailer. I think Santa Monica Studio's will show something. Guerilla might reveal something (but maybe they wait for Gamecom). The same goes for Bend Studios and Media Molecule. Until Dawn will be revealed as a Project Morpheus launchgame. The Last Guardian might get a trailer or at Tokyo Game Show. I hope Project Beast is true and revealed at E3 and off course I hope for 2 extra unannounced games (I hope Sony stays clear of multiplatform games that get PS4 exclusive DLC btw) BTW: what's David Jaffe up to. Haven't heard from him in a long time...
Sony will own this E3 big time. They Will show EVERYTHING!!! The Order: 1886 Uncharted Driveclub Project Beast Guerilla IP The Last Guardian Gran Turismo PS4 Kingdom Hearts last of us Deep Down Gravity Rush 2 Persona 5 Agent New Crash New Shenmue New Wild Arms New SSM game New Bend game New MM game New SCE London game New Quantic Dream game ***************************** *** PS Now PS IPTV Morpheus blowout Vita TV Release Date on NA ***************************** * Third parties like FFXV, Arkham Knight, Destiny, and Ass Creed. And ofcourse Indie games :)
If yhey show all that at e3 then all their other conferences like gamescom and tgs are gunna be pretty empty
new crash would be awesome
