Sony has expressed a strong desire to improve its digital output going forward, but I still hold doubts about how seriously they are taking the mobile market. However, if this latest news is to be believed, not only is Sony totally serious, the company is also going out of its way to make sure indie developers are as comfortable as they can be.

Mobile studio Icon Games has confirmed that its iOS title Great Little War Game will be coming to the PS Vita once the unit launches. How did Icon get those PS Vita dev kits so early? Well, Sony was so impressed by the game that Icon was gifted four kits absolutely free! Has there been a precedence for such an act in recent memory?

If this is how Sony is going to play ball, Nintendo better wake up and stop kicking the dirt!

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more

PS4, Vita getting psychological romance adventure Alone With You

 Alone With You, presumably the prequel to "Stuck in the Middle With You," comes from the man behind 2D horror Home and its spray can pastel world seems cool. You're the only remnant of a failed terraforming outfit...more
