Sony launches indie game category on PlayStation Store

Sony's indie initiative continues.

Sony's indie initiative continues, this time with the launch of an indie game category on the PlayStation Store.

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe director of publisher and developer relations Andrew Parsons told the PlayStation Blog that the new indie game area was designed to help indie games gain additional exposure.

"It's an opportunity to showcase the best of these great games for PS3 and PS Vita," he said, "And for this to be constantly refreshed with the latest releases and promotions. It's the first and best place to go for indie content (though of course content can still be found through the normal channels too)."

Sony has in recent months secured the release of a number of eye-catching indie games for PlayStation, including Luftrausers, Hotline Miami and Thomas Was Alone. Eurogamer's Jeffrey Matulef investigated the Japanese company's new-found love of all things indie in a feature published last month.

As part of the launch of the indie game space on the Store, Brian Provinciano's Retro City Rampage now benefits from a new 50 per cent discount.
