You can totally tell considering they've never done anything with them.

I really hope Sony makes this work. I've been in love with indie games for a while now and I think the exposure of a console is a great thing to get more people playing these games.

If you are talking trash about indies game in this comments section

You are ruining video games and i don't like you.

I personally enjoy games, that were made with passion not a cash grab.

genuine love for indies?  More like they've got nothing else ready to show for the PS4.

For the most part, I'm indifferent to the whole indie scene. There are a few gems that I have picked up because they looked like fun when watching someone who enjoys indie games play them. And they are amusing. Once in a while a AAA quality indie game will come along, and that is amazing to see. I am all for Sony going all in as far as supporting indie development, if only on the off chance that a truly great, mainstream quality indie game comes along.

That said, I like when every single piece of a game has a backstory and an explanation. I want to be immersed into a finely crafted and meticulously detailed world with core gameplay mechanics that just feel perfect. I'd rather not be bothered to come up with my own explanation for the developer's quirky additions to a game that don't seem to make sense or otherwise belong in a game.

So, all in all, the indie scene is great for its potential, but I'm a AAA, mainstream, hardcore gamer who loves a great game no matter the genre.

Dont hate $ony, all of those M$ followers should hate the same M$ for failing on you.

Pray to your god for the miracle, M$ dug its own grave, and its a very deep one

Could someone tell me who's the dev they were taking about who is "making the game he's been dreaming to make since he was a child"? The game will probably be amazing if it's based on an idea harbored for so many years!

@xxYetterxx It's a different marketing direction for the PS4. Just like how Microsoft is trying hard to push the Kinnect 2 as XB1's selling point. Both companies are trying everything to differentiate their product from their competition. 

And you know what? I think Sony is genius for embracing indie games, they certainly see the prospect and the significant role indie games will play in the video game industry, something Microsoft can't see beyond its Halo, Fable and yearly EA sports and COD copy&paste fare. 

You know what was the single best selling console title of the current generation? Not COD, not Madden, not FIFA. It's a small lil indie game called Minecraft. 

Some of the most critically acclaimed titles of this current generation were also indie games. Games like Braid, World of Goo, Limbo, FEZ, Super Meat Boy, the recent Gone Home as well as many others.

As the market for yearly sports and FPS games have become suffocatingly saturated, indie games offer a breath of fresh air, originality, creativity and passion that the industry is now deprived of. Sony is extremely clever in establishing a stronghold and relationship with the indie devs before Microsoft. And honestly I think this may even downright win them the console war next gen.

@phbz Indie and mobile games aren't the same thing. Many mobile games are indie titles, but an indie title is not going to be a certain mobile title (take Journey, Braid and Super Stardust HD for example).

@phbz I think it is different. I think Sony had this love long before Ouya was a thing and in existance. Sony just didn't bring this to the table first because of the PS3 on the market which wasn't designed for something other than those First, Second and Third Party Developers. Indie is like a Fourth Party Developer which is not bound to anything and acts freely.

@Slvrshot  Click the xbox link up on top of the main page, dummy. Lots of coverage there.

@John_Read Sony honestly has the most indies in the console market. I could list them all but if you don't know them then your talking out your a$$ and then your not worth the time.

And you said that because of it being about PS4.

@chaosbrigade its funny that you say that. All of those games you mentioned were originally released on XBLA because MS has always had a better strategy towards indie development then Sony. Now that Xbox has announced that every retail console will be a dev kit it looks like MS is going to continue to lead well into the future. Sony doesn't have good ideas anymore. They are constantly two steps behind their competitors

@Dictatroll @ahmed74 Clever use of Xbox indie games to counter point an Xbox fan.

(and by Xbox, I mean not on PS3)

@Tanares @TrueRadiantFree @FULGOREY2K nope wrong again jesus is God because God is consisted of the holy spirit ,the son (witch is jesus) and the holy father(witch is God).in conclusion jesus is god which means he is his own father and his own son.fucked up

@canuckbiker Why so serious just because of one person's view of religion? Hey I have diffrences with things like scientology sometimes but to each their own. That is freedom=the freedom to choose. As a non denominational spiritualist towards Christ and god I simply choose to believe, not doubt everyone else's views for them.Sure I have a opinion but that's it..The same freedom that you speak of is the same freedom you attack the second one unproven thing to many either way gets slammed.Has it been proven there is no God, no, has it been proven a one god exists-to those that believe there is.why cant it stay that simple? EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN VIEW and Thoughts as well as speech and opinions I hope it stays that way.peace, later all.

The Internet is global, not the sole possession of America, free speech is the staple of the Internet. You can preach if you want, fairy tales don't bother me at all, unless you expect me live by your narrow view on the world. Religious organizations have caused more oppression in rights and freedoms across the world than anything else possibly could.

@fume0101  So now in America, a free country, I don't have freedom of speech or the right to say the name of Jesus? I'm pretty sure you're the one who will be "exiting" into a jail cell if you try to stop people's freedom's.

@CraZed__ Yeah they played all their cards for this year on the table at E3. M$ did very little at gamescom and they certainly wont be at TGS.  There maybe hope at PAX but after that its news for now is over.

@Slvrshot @ahpuck Microsoft didn't have much of a presence at Gamescom. They held a small meeting with select press and chatted for a bit. They then held their own promotional talk show hosted by Major Nelson and two other folks that I don't recognize, where they basically toured their game lineup and dressed in gold.

@Slvrshot @ahpuck Which is still a lot more than MS showed.... Perhaps that is why they aren't talking about the XB1 in the wake of Gamescom. What was sad is MS was a no show, not that GS decided not to manufacture coverage for them.

@John_Read @rasputin177 John look at the end of the line when rasputin states that Sony has the most indies. I'll help you "in the console market"
