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.

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!

SoundSelf was one of the more interesting experiences I had at PAX, or any other convention for that matter. I put on the Oculus Rift, the headset, and then hummed into the microphone where the visuals and audio would react ...more
