The support for the PS4 is massive especially since they drawing a lot of the indie devs associated to XBLA or Steam.


Yes, like Jonathan Blow who makes his game (timed)exclusive without Sony moneyhatting him. PS4 will be a paradise for indies and pc devs. Diablo 3 is coming aswel.

 

World domination.


Yeps. And we're seeing PC indie games like Binding of Isaac, Frozen Synapse and Miami Hotline coming to PS3/Vita. With Pub Fund games, they took games that would have been pc exclusive like Closure and Guacamelee and made them timed exclusive on the PS3.

In other words, PS4 will be massively supported.

They're supporting it with a tech demo!

I don't think they're making games anymore.



So we have a thread talking about the awesome 3rd party support and now we needed another one to put a number on it?

150 is really not that many at this point in time ...

A large portion of PS3 and XBox 360 games took 3 (or more) years to produce, with the level of graphics people are expecting from the PS4 that will (probably) be the norm for that platform (with big budget games potentially taking 4+ years), and you usually see 200+ games released every year for a platform that has strong third party support.

Essentially, 150 development teams could probably produce 150 games a year for the Nintendo DS, 100 games a year for the Wii/3DS/PSP, 50 to 75 games a year for the PS3/XBox 360/Wii U/PS-Vita, or 25 to 50 games a year for the PS4/'XBox 720' ...



Well its a good sign isnt it. I think the PS4 will not have the same software problem the ps3 had in its first year and the vita have.

But as others mentioned there will be also a lot of puplishers mentioned which only bring some cheap games and not full retail games. But anyway the list is full packed and promise a lot of support from thebeginning which is the most important thing to be succesfull the next generation.

I say it a lot of times software is what sells hardware.



No Natsume support? PS4 is doomed.



i love how the lists include the Sony divisions. As if its a possibility they wouldnt develop for it
