Curve Studios Announce Move To PS Vita And PS4 Due To Lack Of Indie Support With Xbox One

Curve Studios have announced that due to the lack of independent support recently announced from Microsoft and the Xbox One, they will focus on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. Curve Studios had this to say:

“XBLA was a trailblazer last generation, so it’s sad to see Microsoft not announcing dedicated support for independent developers on the Xbox One.” said Managing Director Jason Perkins, who started his own game development career as an independent developer on the Commodore 64.

Jason added, “Refusing to concentrate on easier submissions and discoverability leaves the way clear for Sony to capture the most innovative market in gaming right now.”
Jason Perkins said: “Sony’s show of support for developers, including showing independent releases not only front and centre on their storefront but also during the PlayStation 4 reveal is creating a more open, co-operative market for independent games to enter the living room on a level playing field.”

Curve Studios have revealed Thomas Was Alone has been downloaded over 200,000 times on PS3 and PS Vita and they are currently working on Jasper Bryne's Lone Survivor for PS3 and PS Vita.
