It's a fancy corporate-sounding term, but it's also a bit "black-ops" sounding, so that's cool. Our focus has been working with the indie dev community over the last year and a half, but it's not all we do. We also work with larger publishers. In this post, we'll be focusing on the indie story.

At gamescom, we've just underlined our commitment to bringing PlayStation fans the creative work of the some of the best indie talent in the world. Many of the games we've announced from our indie development partners will be making their console debut on PS4 and PS Vita. We've also got titles continuing to come to PS3.

Remember, at PlayStation, we allow the smallest indies to self-publish on the PS Store alongside the biggest publishers, we're democratic like that. We're also working hard to make things better for our partners, large or small, all the time.

Let's take a closer look at some of the titles we announced.

53w ago - Today Sony has released some new PS4 (GUI) screenshots of the PlayStation 4's user interface, which include user profiles, the new PlayStation Store, inbox messaging and video sharing.

Below are the details from DigitalSpy.com (linked above), to quote: "The FCC's consumer arm revealed several technical details about the system during its extensive testing, confirming a maximum clock efficiency of 2.75GHz.

The images were issued to coincide with the announcement that the console has passed FCC certification in the US.

It was also revealed that the PS4 will weigh in at 2.8kg - making it considerably lighter than the original PS3 at 5kg, but heavier than the latest 2.1kg slimline models.

Sony's new console will run at a cooler temperature than its predecessor, making it less likely to overheat. The hardware's ideal operating temperature is between 5 and 35 degrees Celsius, compared to the PS3's average of between 45 and 55.

The PS4 will launch this holiday for $399 in North America and £349 in the UK. The console will launch alongside titles including Killzone: Shadow Fall, Drive Club and Knack."

200°
58w ago - Devolver Digital's Nigel Lowrie announced today that Hotline Miami is hitting both PS3 and PS Vita Tuesday with a PS-exclusive mask!

To quote: Let's get to the news you've all been waiting for first - Hotline Miami will launch for $9.99 on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita on June 25th!

The teams at Dennaton Games, Abstraction Games, and Devolver Digital have worked incredibly hard to reproduce the fast-paced gameplay and super tight controls of the original game, and we couldn't be happier with how Hotline Miami plays on PS3 and PS Vita.

The PlayStation versions of Hotline Miami will also have an exclusive new mask designed by Abstraction and Dennaton Games. After months of top secret bovine research, we finally get to unveil our new friend: Russell the raging bull.

Russell is hidden early in the game, and when equipped will turn the entire game black and white save the neon text and red blood left behind as you rampage through each floor of every level. It's a really neat effect, and even changes up the video filter a bit to give the whole game a classic film look.

There are also a bunch of new upgrades, like leaderboards for each level of the game, Trophies, and even touch support for lock-on targeting in the PS Vita version. Plus, Hotline Miami is a Cross-Buy...
