Despite a Cold Shoulder at E3, Sony Isn't Turning Its Back on Indies


#1

After PlayStation's presentation left indies on the sidelines, devs assure us that they're not "less relevant now."

I kind of wonder if this is less about their support of indies and more about how they want to structure their press conferences. To me it seemed there was a lot of criticism in prior years about their focus being too heavily on 3rd party and indie stuff and them not having indie stuff, and this has swung completely the other way. Now E3 is only about first party, and indie/3rd party stuff gets a stage at PSX. That still isn’t justification though, in an ideal world they would give an equal share to all games at all events, they certainly would’ve had a better showing this year had they shown some smaller stuff instead of showing us 1st party stuff we knew about.
