Mike Bithell has commended Sony on its support of indie games, but has also highlighted that Sony gets a lot out of that support.
Yeah a lot of money, like every company that supports indies.
Yeah it makes them seem more like a friend rather than a business who only care about gaining that extra penny.
Which they unfortunately are.
I don't think going after indie games is especially lucrative compared to bestselling giants like GTA or COD, but it does create a friendlier image and has helped fill in the sparseness between AAA releases. There are many great indie games and AAAs are learning a lot from the risks and new ideas that indies take. Without new and fresh ideas that may not be successful, the AAA industry could easily stagnate into generic FPSs and 3rd person shooters.
fk indies where is my H1Z1
Yea they get to hide the fact that their AAA retail games are lacking to say tbe least.
