The Witness PS4 PlayStation 4 1

The Witness certainly falls under the bracket "indie game", but much like the upcoming No Man's Sky, creator Jonathan Blow's open world adventure is not your average pixel art side scroller. And subsequently, the Braid maker is commanding a premium fee for the puzzler: $39.99 in North America, and £29.99 in the UK.

Despite the game launching on 26th January, there won't be any pre-orders on the PlayStation Network. "Apparently developers have to set those up months in advance," explained Blow, "and we didn't know that." It's no biggie, though, because the creator's not got any pre-order bonuses in the pipeline: "[Pre-orders on the PC] contain an amazing bonus pack-in: the warm fuzzy feeling that you have pre-ordered the game. And that's all."

Nice one, Jon.
