Sony explains how they find PlayStation 4 developers

Sony’s Vice President of Developer & Publisher Relations Adam Boyes, the guy who talks to developers and gets them on board the PlayStation 4, talks in a new interview about the process of reaching out to developers. Boyes explains how much easier it is to get an indie game on the PlayStation 4 — the requirements from Sony are much more relaxed, and that shows in the indie games we’ve seen so far. He also talks about Sony’s internal process, how they find new games, how they make deals, who they talk to developers, and more.

Sony has focused heavily on indie games and developers with the PlayStation 4. There are dozens of indie games in development for the new console, many of them exclusives. Currently, the PlayStation 4 has 34 launch games, 19 of which will be indie titles available on the PlayStation Network.

    So what are the other 15 launch games then?

    Unless you’re counting multiplats.

        Not really.

        PS4 has been outselling Xbox One likes there’s no competition (and there hardly is) without them

        Sony has more and better IPs than MS so can you imagine what’ll happen after PS4 gets all the heavy-hitters?

            Uncharted or god of war are much better. Too many shooters these days does my head in.

            Have to agree with you. Uncharted or God of War would have been a bigger launch title. I still don’t know why they made God of War Ascension, that game was horrible imho

            yeah sonic 06 had a lot of glitches and I sticked with sonic heroes and I’m hoping Sonic’s lost world is going to be a great game than 06 which will be better

            well I can be right sometimes but I was lucky not to play the game or buy it, I just thought it would suck

            It’s a good thing, they were selling that crap for $60. The nerve Sony had. Oh well, it’s the only God of War game that I didn’t enjoy. I’m still looking forward to LittleBigPlanet 3 coming to the PS4 :D

            I’m looking forward to a lot of things including KH3 and FFXV. what I’m looking forward to is Killzone: Shadow Fall and Battlefield 4

            I’m hoping it’s to stay away from rehashing, but I want that Uncharted.

          I think IMO when it comes to IP’s both Microsoft and Sony level out. Microsoft has Viva Pianta,Banjo Kazooie, Conker, Perfect Dark,Fable, Halo,Killer Instinct under there belt.

          Sony has Ratchet and Clank, God of War, Killzone, Resistance,Heavenly Sword(if that could be considered a Sony IP) Little Big Planet, Sly Cooper, Jack and Daxter, Uncharted etc. so in many ways I think they both have some great IP’s at there disposal.
          Again my opinion

            That’s your opinion indeed.
