Two indie shooter just announced PlayStation 4 at the BitSummit, the independent game festival held at Kyoto.
The first Revolver360 Re: Actor , is a "game rotary shot" developed by Cross Eaglet already announced last year on PC during Comiket 85.
The second, Prismatic Solid , born from the collaboration between Active Gaming Media and YO1 KOMORI was released on Xbox LIVE in 2010, in the "Indie Games" section.
The success of Resogun visibly given ideas to some developers, and it is not going to complain ...
Revolver: Reactor Video
Prismatic Solid Video
Both of these were, within shooter circles, known bright spots on XBLIG. Revolver: Reactor was on my top 10 of 2013 and is a great game (hopefully it gets localized?). It looks like the end of XNA and the success of Resogun has led these devs to try their luck with the PS4. One other reason seems to be this:
According to this 4gamer article, at least as far as Japan is concerned, ID@Xbox is "currently targeting only incorporated game developers", and whether unincorporated creators or doujin circles could put their games on it in the future is unclear.
Given the proliferation of doujin creators in Japan this seems like a bone-headed decision on MS' part, but certainly not their first in this country.
