FOSTER CITY, Calif., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sony Computer
Entertainment America LLC (SCEA) today continued its commitment to delivering
new and innovative experiences to gamers by introducing several one-of-a-kind
titles from its growing independent developer portfolio for all PlayStation
platforms, including the newly announced PlayStation®4 (PS4™) system. With
several options for developers to publish on PlayStation®Network, including a
flexible self-publishing process, a low barrier to entry, an accessible SDK
and various funding opportunities such as the PlayStation Pub Fund, SCEA will
continue to offer the best platform for independently published console games
across the game industry.


"We've got an incredible team on the ground that talks to developers every
day, and these new games we're announcing are a direct result of the team's
proactive outreach and focus on working with top independent developers," said
Adam Boyes, vice president, publisher and developer relations, SCEA. "Our
process and approach in working with developers has evolved to incorporate a
lot of flexibility into the process, including the way we pursue and discover
new talent, help them with funding solutions and work together to deliver
their best games onto PlayStation platforms."

The games unveiled today for PS4 include Zombie Studios' Blacklight:
Retribution and Primal Carnage: Genesis from Lukewarm Media. These games will
join Jonathan Blow's highly anticipated exploration-puzzler, The Witness, as
self-published titles making their console debut on the PS4 system. In
addition to supporting Blacklight: Retribution, the PlayStation Pub Fund,
which provides back-end financial and marketing support to developers, adds
fighting game Divekick and infographic adventure Metrico, which is a
PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita) exclusive.

The games were highlighted, along with additional details about SCEA's new
developer and publisher support system and guidelines, at tonight's
PlayStation press event during the Game Developers Conference 2013 in San
Francisco. Below are additional details about the new games, developers and
programs PlayStation is showcasing at GDC 2013:

    futuristic free-to-play first-person shooter.
  oPrimal Carnage: Genesis for PS4 is a story driven, episodic single player
    adventure that takes place in a world where dinosaurs have been brought
