Sony has just recently announced that they want to stay connected with their indie developers, so they will be holding quarterly indie developer get-togethers where they will stay updated throughout the community.
These events will be hosted by Sony offices located in London, where the developers will get a chance to hear about upcoming updates, changes to the PS4, PS3, Vita platforms and give PSN feedback.
Senior Account Manager of SCEE Agostino Simonetta had this to say:
“You know we do these things very regularly with all our partners, but with the indie community, it is so vast and they are spread out, that it is hard for me to go and work with developer days in the Middle East. So while we do these things, we want to make sure it is that on a regular basis.”
“With the great success we are having actually of indie developers registering, we are seeing incredible numbers of new companies coming to the platform. There is a real sense that PS4 – and Vita as well, PS3 still has a long life – that this is a great opportunity for them to come back to console.
“We are really accelerating and changing the way we approach this. So before was more of a narrow cast, now there is a real opportunity for us to go what I call broadcast – a lot more visibility to be able to answer the questions.”
It is amazing to see Sony working with these smaller companies to make the gaming industry stronger.
