Sony Cuts the Ribbon on the PlayStation Store's New Indie Games Section
Posted by Sammy Barker
Weird and wonderful
Sony’s coveting indie developers hard at the moment, so it makes sense that the platform holder is making a big song and dance out of the PlayStation Store’s new ‘Indie Games’ category. The channel – launching imminently in both Europe and North America – is designed to provide additional exposure to existing and upcoming indie titles available for both the PlayStation 3 and Vita.
"This category builds on the support that PlayStation has offered independent developers in the effort to highlight some of the most unique gaming experiences on PlayStation platforms," explained Pierre Gravereau on the PlayStation Blog. "This new category will house all of our latest indie titles in one convenient place.”
In order to celebrate the section, Sony has arranged a 50 per cent discount on cross-buy favourite Retro City Rampage in both Europe and North America. Papo & Yo will also be discounted in the United States, while PlayStation Plus subscribers will still be able to grab Zombie Tycoon II: Brainhov’s Revenge for free.
