Makes sense I guess. The xbox version was really hurt by the fact it cane later than the PSN. Most of my PlayStation firemds told me the game wasn't worth it so I skipped it.

After playing it the game is good but it definite something that is targeting a certain segment of the indie market.

@dumedum

Of course but I was mostly stating that due to lack of Unity and power its harder to port games to the 3DS. I was merely stating that Lack of Unity isn't a good thing for the 3DS since Unity has become the big third party engine in the indie community. So in most cases it means that your having to make a whole new game.

@dok5555555

They're making the game with Unity which the Vita supports and the 3DS doesn't. To make a 3DS version of the game would be to make a brand new game from the ground up.

That and the power difference is the main reason why the Vita has so many indie games compared to the 3DS. Usually when you make a PS4/PS3 game its not hard to convert it too vita.

I assumed Nintendo would want to distance themselves from the recent batch if bad press the penny arcade guys have gotten. Now if that start skipping stuff like comic con I'd be worried.

I'll have to try out Ghost Recon Shadow Wars after I'm done with Fire Emblem.

Pretty great interview. It shows how versatile the strategy genre of games is fitting into any play style from turn based to real time and being able to adapt to any sort of story or time period.

@Unca_Lz

How much of that is figuring in digital sales.

Good to see the Vita start to pick up momentum. Its looking like it will be a repeat of last generation. The 3DS and its hardware sells into it hits market saturation and than the Vita starts to get massive support.

It makes me wonder when were going to see the successor to the 3DS.

@Emblem

Depends there's still a ton of indie games out or coming that aren't apart of the PS+ program and I've heard about people picking up games like the new awesomenauts.

Vita has been surviving on PS+ content, but beside that the system still has a great attach rate and sales of indie games have been really good. I won't be suprised if the PS4 is the same.

Wii U is getting alot of digital games. The big problem I see is that its not getting high profile ones that push units, While Sony is getting smaller titles as well as the big games coming out.

It doesn't help that the main big support for the Nintendo digital eco system are from the same 3-4 devs who mostly make games for Nintendo Platforms. Even as a indie platform vehicle I find it hard to recommend the Wii U compared to the PS4 which seems to be get announcments every other day.

But more games the better is what I always say.

@Dark-Link73

Wonderful 101 isn't an Indie game. Nintendo funded it and owns the IP so its not really indie to be honest. I don't consider games like Jounry or State of Decay to be indie either for that matter.

@rjejr

huh didn't know about that. I think its going to be digital only here in the states I'm assuming the price will be at the $15-$20 range of the studio's previous title Mars War Logs.

But its also the reason I prefer the term Digital Download compared to indie.

Well that the beauty of Indie titles you can still have stuff on the lower end of the spetrum like Kung-Fu Rabbit which is a pretty small title. At the same time you can have something like Bound by Flame which would have been on consoles years back.

@MrV4ltor
I prefer getting away from the word indie and use the term Digital Download. I mean technically Crytek is a Independent right.

I think any VR headset will probably fail, outside of being a uber niche enthuists thing like Occlus Rift will be. For the most part add-on's made post console launch tend to fail and in all honestly Wii Balance board and Kinect were exceptions to the rule. A VR head set is on another whole level than those two from a pricing model. (Occlus dev kit is $400)

If the PS4 dev VR thing becomes a reality I'll probably pick one up for curisoitys sake, but I'm not expecting it to be any sort of success, other than getting the hardware out their so they can better iterate for next generation which is a longways off.

I've tried to tell them but people don't listen about the vita

Also I find it interesting people ignored the Europe survey as well.

@johndevine

Vita has a strong per unit attach rate that's mostly all digital. Its also easier to port a game to the Vita from the PC or other PlayStation Systems. The 3DS is really unqie usually meaning more money and time out into porting the game. Its a difficult proposition becuase if you hit it big on the eshop you can pull in bank, but for the sane cost you could target more platforms from the outset.

To be fair Jools barley marketed the other versions of the game. I didn't even know the game was on steam and the PS3/Vita versions got buried over a onslaught of more high profile indie games.

Also what's with this Nintendo= Platfimers when the Xbox and Ps3 have tons of high selling inside platforms like Super Meat Boy and Castle Crashers.

Still good sales at the end of the day are good sales.

While were saying that Nintendo is honorable isn't that mostly the people who work there now. I mean just reading what I have about Yammuchi dude would have fired from the top and got rid of guys quickly.

Still I don't think Nintendo xoikd have afforded to so Maas firings when they just hired new staff and finished new buildgs. That would have looked even worse on headlines.

@Warruz

Pretty sure its a horror Sci-fi FPS.

I have to say I sometimes feel like Renegade Kidd is streched too far in terms of development. But at this point it looks like they should be on track to release a game each season if this keeps up.
