The lights are on
Today during an event PAX 2013 event in Seattle, Washington, Sony announced a slew of upcoming indie games heading to the PS3, PS4, and Vita. The newcomers to the Sony family include Divekick on PlayStation 4, VVVVVV for Vita, and Octodad: Dadliest Catch getting PlayStation Move support.
Sony drove home its support of indie titles during a press conference during Gamescom 2013 last week in Cologne, Germany, Hot on the heels of that reaffirmation of their indie initiative, the publisher made the following announcements:
Our TakeSony is setting itself up to be the undisputed king of indie gaming on home consoles. It's interesting to consider whether this outspoken support for indie games was always part of the company's plan, or if Sony is ratcheting it up to continue to make itself look better compared to Microsoft. With Microsoft continually going back on previous statements, Sony's intense indie support is one of the few remaining things separating the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Whatever the reason for Sony's continued indie boosting, we're a huge fan of it and hope it continues.
