PS4 has earned great support from a wide variety of game publishers, including many
indie developers. Since February 2013, the number of developers joining has increased from 126 to 505.

I'm guessing a lot of those are indies, due to self publishing.

lol I find it funny how there's like 4 threads now, each using the same link, but picking out different pieces of information to spotlight.

Someone just make a damn thread that says "Official PS4 specifications, box contents, and other shit that's cool to know"

The best moment of Sony's show was their DRM announcement. But following closely behind was having all the indie developers playing their games up on stage. Great moment for independent games, great moment for Sony, great moment for Adam Boyes.

Subsidized Xbone for 199.99 with 2 year XBL contract would do it.

I laughed.

But yeah, that's flipping AMAZING. Although one has to wonder which are indie devs. Once I'm done with my game, I may invest in getting it on PSN.

I wish for this to happen, but that ship has sailed, handhelds are what the market likes, and games being cheaper to develop, I don't see that changing anytime soon.

Uh guys... before you soil your panties...
Some developers like Platinum have already made remarks about these announcements.

It doesn't mean 505 studios are actually making games or planning on making games for the PS4.
It just means that they are open to making games on PS4.
It's a matter of... feelings towards the console, not any actual plans.


And then Nintendo fanboys get blamed for blind, ignorant love.

You know, I remember even the amazing PS2 had "no games" in the first year, but PS4 looks like it's going to have 100 or so. Support is very strong.

Even the launch should be pretty killer, even if most of it is cross-gen.

That is why I love indie games, always gives you something to play while you wait for the AAA games.

I would say that was expected and irritating, rather than disastrous. Sony trying to win a crowd that happily paid for online play for over half a decade. It was never going to pan out any other way sadly.
