They are very creative and they go out of the norm to do something really amazing. So we really want to make it easier for them to come to our platform and publish.”
So far, Sony has revealed that The Witness, the new title from Braid developer Jonathan Blow, will be released exclusively on the PlayStation 4 during its launch window.
