    I don't get why they are saying it will blow your pants off when there is already tons of more powerful hardware on the market, but I guess it is understandable for an indie dev to be excited.

    lol...I think this article is more in reference to the PC gamers doubt of the console. I still would like to know what is exactly under the hood that makes the system go boom. Grant it Sony has stated some specifics, but not everything.

    because if they made this game on the PC, they can't expect it to sell very well.

    Eh? Indie games sell better on PC than consoles, especially if said console is just now releasing and has no install base established yet capable of purchasing the game. In fact, 90% of all indie games releasing for the PS4 were already great selling games previously available on PC only.

    I'm not sure if there is one single "best" selling platform for indies. PC does well when a hit comes along but it's also much more difficult to be seen.

    Ps3/Vita is a nice blend of visibility on the store and sales aren't always guaranteed but it's much more likely to trialed at the very least.

    XBLA generally has the best sales per piece of software but that's because there are so few indies willing to work with MS any more so the selection is very thin.

    WiiU is awesome for coverage but there just aren't enough people to buy the games.

    The indie market is hard to pin down.

    I think the reason indie games are selling well is because they don't have to jump through hoops on the PC, they don't get charged to patch their games or anything. That is kind of changing here for the PS4. But at the same time indie games or most indie games are not graphical power houses but they do come around from time to time. So the family that bought their PC at bestbuy can actually play those games. There are more indie developers jumping on the Sony's console compared to before, a lot more in-fact.

    you've misunderstood. my point is that they are calling the PS4 powerful because they can't just make a game like this on the PC and expect to sell it to the masses. only the top fraction would be able to play it at the level of fidelity they want you to play it at. on a normal PC, it wouldn't look this nice. indie developers can do more with all this power and not have to worry about who they're leaving out and who they aren't. so in actuality, the PS4 has more power available to them than the silly indie games you normally see.

    Ah I see. The PS4 has a lot of power, and that power is available for all PS4 users while most PC indie games have to focus on more budget-PC-friendly games for their target audience. I definitely agree with that.

    Too bad Resogun won't be a game that does it.

    Most meh worthy 'big name' game revealed on PS4 thus far.

    Admittedly, targeting a single platform can do wonders for a small developer. All potential compatibility and performance issues can be isolated and worked around.

    Developers going from console to PC usually encounter a wide range of issues when making the move.

    You also have the bizarre side issue of keeping games limited incase they potentially want to do iOS/Android versions down the track.

    and more importantly a closed or single-configuration platform.

    Developers going from console to PC usually encounter a wide range of issues when making the move.

    You also have the bizarre side issue of keeping games limited incase they potentially want to do iOS/Android versions down the track.
    yeah and that's a decision they have to make. i.e. Reso wouldn't be possible on smart phones and i'm sure they don't care.

    now we might see a PC version but it makes sense to come out with this on a console first.

    I used to game on PC i would say that no matter what the pc gamers say only the very high end systems will play BF4 on maximum at a decent res and with playable framerates. 99% of pc owners BF4 wont get anywhere near medium at 60fps. I played BF3 at medium to high (mostly medium) and it looked fantastic so i wouldnt worry about the PS4 version. Either way 64 players and 60fps ..... who wouldnt want that??!!

    I wouldn't judge a console's power on a multiplat launch title made by EA, though perhaps that's just me.
