John Robertson discovers how Super Meat Boy and Hotline Miami influenced a new spin on the neglected skateboarding genre.
“After our first pitch to Sony they told us that we weren’t asking them for enough money… they said they liked what we pitched, but it wasn’t going to work with the amount of money we asked for. That’s not usually how it works, you usually get asked to do even more than you’ve pitched and then get hammered down on the price [laughs].” Seriously, hats off to Sony for this, and for allowing Hegarty to retain the ip's ownership.
Haha! That is something Shahid would say. Whoever saw his Indie Revolution press conference can see this is a genuine guy who wants Indie games to succeed on Playstation. So big ups to Shahid & the rest of the Indie games guys on Playstation.
LOL really now! *Submits game to Sony... gets paid*
Good guy sony.
Well, this is bordering to charity. Good thing OlliOlli is a good game.
this is what i call "to invest smart". nice move sony as always
Sony sure is something else and the game actually looks alot of fun.
Sony is being really nice to indies and I do believe it will pay off for them. Love them or hate them some of these devs are really great at what they do but don't have the funds to create a AAA game. Some of these indies could be the next big thing and if it goes viral then these devs will remember how well Sony has treated them plus they have experience on sonys hardware to boot. Also this success story brings a point that vita owners buy games. Hopefully more attention from larger studios will be a result. Vita needs it.
This is a good thing. No way to spin it otherwise.
Indie LOL... no no... Sony paid them to say that they were paid.... no no ..... dammit this is unspinable alright.
I'm sure georgenoob, truefan and the gang will find a way to call this 'typical sony arrogance' or something.
Yes and georgenoob will use his favorite word bogus
Bu-but these companies are only after money! Surely they never do anything nice! All they care about is making more money, and they'll do anything, just like other companies, in order to do so! /s This kind of situation is why myself and many others prefer Sony, and have a little bit of faith in a "big corporation."
*Looks up* Gee I wonder how the reactions would be on here if MS or Nintendo did this? "RAAAH MONEYHATTING! PAID SHILL!" ;)
sad they dont.. atleast nintendo doesnt lie
You've got issues.
And you can't take a joke ;). But I still love you.
MS wouldn't do such a thing.
Its great isn't it? i wouldn't have it any other way. Glad you agree
Idk how you got all of that from just me saying indiestation 4. Im still waiting for a reason to buy a playstation 4. But indie games is not worth the purchase whatsoever. Until the order or uncharted 4 and infamous all release thats when I buy it. All sony are doing now is copying microsofts last gen method of gaming by supplying gamers xbla games. And I don't agree lol so much for ps4 being next gen when they have done nothing but release indie games. Killzone is a piece of crap and knack is the only game I actually like but doesn't justify my purchase.
Its kinda a luxury item right now. I agree there's not a" OMG must have ps4" right now but it is a nice system that does have great looking games whether they are ports or last gen remakes regardless. For the budget minded or value minded consumer its easily logical tohold off for at least 6 months for some good stuff to hit. ( Infamous, driveclub, etc.)
http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/wOLW... You know this is a Vita game, right?
Olli Olli is a Vita game.
Hats off to Sony. That is the way to build good and healthy business relationships. Now Microsoft is totally a different story, you never hear this kind of positive stories about Microsoft.
