PlayStation boasts over 1,000 licensed self-publishers

6:00 PM on 03.28.2014 // Brittany Vincent

Sony thanks devs for their accomplishments

Sony wants us to know they haven't forgotten the commitments they've made to independent developers, and in fact want to share the sentiment that they still "<3 their devs." They love them so much that they've amassed 1,000 developers who are all licensed to self-publish on PlayStation.

Ever since November's PS4 launch, we've been patiently waiting for that steady stream of releases that's been poised to come down the pipeline, especially when it comes to the indie games that pop up out of nowhere and take the industry by storm. With over 100 games scheduled for launch on PS4 this year, it looks like we're about to see that start happening. And hey, it's not the sweet spot Vegeta likes to boast about, but 1,000 different developers (with 200 located in North America) is an impressive amount.

Games like Don't Starve and Outlast were only the tip of the iceberg, with Octodad, GALAK-Z, The Witness, and Rogue Legacy on their way to the platform as well. I'm ready for some Rogue Legacy. I nearly got frostbite on Black Friday so I could play Resogun, so I think I can be patient a little longer for a console version of one of my favorite games of 2013. In any case, this is excellent news and a lot to look forward to.

Fuck racism man, shit ain't fair. Can't stand it and I shouldn't have to. Nobody should.

Embedded pictures in Quickposts seem to be broken for me right now.

To my surprise, I've more or less figured out Rodea Wii U controls. Still a different game from the Wii version, but not as decidedly inferior in my eyes. Did the legacy medals do anything in Wii version?

"Am I a kid, or a squid?" I ponder as I stare off into the horizon. A wise man once told me "Son, you can be whatever you want to be. You are only limited by your lack of ambition " And I want to be a squid. A squid now.

Gave Ronin one more chance before I chucked it in the "never to be finished" pile, glad I did. It could have been so much better but as a frustrating time waster it's not bad.

I'm sitting on the Fapcast's most recent recording. I just feel like I need a day for myself after, you know, freaking out about rent.

Why is every Quickpost now spaced out like poems with random amounts of stanzas that never ever rhyme?

Was anybody else here extremely disappointed by the ending of Assassin's Creed 2?

Just tried Fallout 4 on my PC Via my Cousins steam account and nope, it does not run for me very well. Buying the PS4 version it is!

Am I the only one who has to pull up their sleeves to play competantly at videogames? When my hoodie's sleeves are down I play like a piece of shit but when i pull them up, I have more flexibility.

PSA: Just picked up Falco amiibo at Best Buy. They had about 20 Tom Nook, 10 singles of Splatoon Boy/Girl, the Splatoon triple pack, about 30 Marths with a big sign saying "Look Who's Back!," Dark Pit, and probably about 15 others. Not too shabby.

I long for the day that people get over their weird circle jerk hatred for FFXIII related things and just ignore things they don't care about.
