One thing stood out during Sony's pre-Gamescom conference, and that was the sheer amount of indie games on show during the event. A huge selection of interesting titles were announced for the console, many of them debuting exclusively on one (or both) of Sony's consoles.
The recently released Rogue Legacy (Cellar Door Games) is to have its console exclusive debut on PS4 and PS Vita next year.
A new version of Edmund McMillen's The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (Nicalis) is heading to PS Vita and PS4 next year, and there'll be no cost for PS Plus subscribers.
Metanet's N++ is to debut exclusively on PS4 this winter. It's the be the definitive entry into the 'N' series, with customisation options and more.
Mike Bithell's follow up to Thomas Was Alone, Volume, was also confirmed for PS Vita and PS4 (another world exclusive debut).
Guns of Icarus Online (Muse Games) is also heading over the PS4 first, sometime in 2014.
Vlambeer are bringing Wasteland Kings to the party. It's a game described as a roguelike-like, which certainly has us interested.
Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number (Dennaton Games/Devolver Digital/Abstraction Games) is yet another console exclusive debut heading to PS4 and PS Vita next year, which will no doubt please fans of fast action of pixelated ultra-violence.
That lot should keep indie fans happy for the foreseeable future, especially when you consider we've not even mentioned the following:
Assault Android Cactus (Witch Beam)
Fez (Polytron Corporation)
Final Horizon (Eiconic Games)
Samurai Gunn (Teknopants)
Switch Galaxy Ultra (Atomicom)
Velocity 2X (FuturLab)
