Microsoft vs. Sony vs. Nintendo vs. OUYA: one indie dev looks at the opportunities on each console
Vlambeer's Rami Ismail has all his skin in the game when it comes to platforms and their support of smaller developers. Vlambeer has a long history of releasing rather excellent games across a variety of platforms, and a new generation of consoles is the perfect time to take a look around and see how the landscape is changing.
This brief post talks about all the major players through his eyes, and it provides some high-level thoughts on what everyone is doing right, and what developers need to look out for. It's a fair assessment of the current marketplace for smaller devs, written by someone who is living inside these ecosystems, or trying to figure out if he wants to move onto other platforms.
Who cares what the press thinks; this is a good look into what the indies are thinking and talking about. It's worth your time.
