Now you can buy PSN games from Amazon

Amazon has a PlayStation Network store now, and it is exactly what you think it is. You can buy digital copies of games and downloadable content to play on your Sony gaming device. Right now you can get a $5 credit if you buy a select title from the new store, so it might be worth checking out. Some games I saw are discounted a little bit too, which is always nice.

Review: Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons photo
Review: Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons
by Brett Makedonski

It all starts innocently enough with a pair of brothers making their way through town. Sure, there's a task at hand, but urgency isn't an issue. It should be, but it isn't. Soaking in the warm glow of the sun and playing with some bunnies feel like more pertinent matters.

Before long, it's not apparent where the siblings are, but it's obvious that they took an unexpected turn toward Crazyville. Thinking back to just a few hours prior, it's remarkable that this is even the same adventure -- how far things have come.

That's when it hits you. Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons isn't about the destination; it's about the journey, cliché be damned. And, oh, what a journey it is.

Indies are the key to console gaming's future photo
Indies are the key to console gaming's future
by Tony Ponce

The console market has become something of a paradox these past few years. Despite total console sales having exceeded 40 million units over the previous generation, and despite a wealth of powerful new IPs, we've witnessed a veritable avalanche of studio closures and cutbacks. The biggest reason for these failings is the current state of traditional games development, which has grown so bloated and inefficient that even historically successful brands can't meet publishers' outrageous sales projections.

One possible countermeasure is a greater focus on digital distribution, although this would require companies to make radical changes to their infrastructure -- hardly an overnight process. But while the bigger publishers are busy splitting resources, trying to address the physical and digital spaces simultaneously, smaller independent developers will be able to quickly capitalize on this relatively new frontier.

Both Sony and Nintendo have recognized the success of indies on the PC and have taken great strides to make their consoles and handhelds as indie-friendly as possible. Indies possess a pioneering spirit that once drove the entire industry, and since they aren't beholden to any panel of investors, they can take the risks that the big boys are too afraid to attempt.

As the major companies fall further out of touch with consumers, indies will be the ones to reinvigorate the market and shape the future of console gaming.
