New area to be 'constantly refreshed' with new releases and promoted games

Sony is set to introduce a new indie game section on the PlayStation Store.

Taking to the PlayStation Blog, SCEE director of publisher and developer relations Andrew Parsons said the new area was designed to offer additional exposure for indie developers and would showcase the best games for PS3 and PS Vita from small teams.

The new section will also be “constantly refreshed” with new releases and promoted games, and Parsons said it will be the first and best place for users to go for indie content.

“I’m delighted that the indie devs have really taken advantage of how open PlayStation is to this tremendous mix of designs and ideas, and that we’re happy to work with everything from traditional buy-and-play games, to free-to-play,” he said.

To celebrate the launch of a new indie section, Brian Provinciano’s Retro City Rampage is currently available at a 50 per cent discount.
