Sony reaching out to Indie Developers to Help
It’s no secret that Sony often tries to be a home for many Indie games, as all of the big three tend to do. But now Sony is unveiling a new program to help fast track Indie games to hit the Playstation platform easier than their competition.
“Greg Rice, Head of PlayStation Creators”
It is our continued goal to make PlayStation the best place to publish and play games of all shapes and sizes. Over the past couple of years, we have been thrilled to support our external publishing partners with features in Indie Spotlight events, indie montage videos on our social channels, dedicated space for PlayStation Indies on PlayStation.com, and have been working to reduce the time it takes to get a new developer on-boarded on PlayStation.
As such, we are always striving to lower the barrier of entry and improve the process for publishing on PlayStation. We’re pleased to announce a new initiative that will make it easier for new partners to hop in and get started with developing for PlayStation.
Newly licensed PlayStation game publishers and developers will be eligible to receive one PS5 development kit and one PS5 testing kit, compliments of SIE subject to applicable terms and conditions.*
So who is eligible? We want to welcome new voices, new ideas, and new experiences from the game development and publishing industry so sign up with PlayStation today at
This is another great move for the industry, helping potentially struggling developers get their products out to the public just a little bit easier. I know many smaller passion projects that could benefit from something like this, and who knows many Sony can help discover the next Indie darling we all will love and enjoy.
