In a new blog post, Head of PlayStation Indies Shuhei Yoshida has doubled down on Sony’s commitment to Indie games, stating that the goal is to make PlayStation “…the best place to develop, find, and play great indie games”.
As the development cycle of AAA games seemingly gets longer and longer, having more Indie games to tide us over can only be a good thing for us gamers. In his post, Shuhei goes on to mention how development on these games has grown so financially demanding that, even if the rewards might be great, the risks might be too much for many developers.
That being said, many of the most critically acclaimed games of this generation fall under the Indie game category, so Sony putting their clout behind independent developers is no doubt a great boost for the industry. Not only that, but a new Indie title will also join the Playstation Now service every month, starting with Hello Neighbour in July.
As for the nine new games, stick with PurePlaystation – as soon as we know you can guarantee we will be the first to let you know.

Stuart has had a long and lengthy love affair with video games, since he first woke up to find Santa had left him a Sega Master System complete with Alex the Kidd built in no less. Since then, his thumbs have become calloused and he has missed many a nights sleep in the pursuit of those elusive “5 more minutes…” but his love has never wavered.
