Sony will pay exhibitor fees for indie devs at Tokyo Game Show 2014

Tokyo Game Show 2014 will likely see more independent developers than ever thanks to Sony covering the exhibitor’s fee for the Indie Game Area.

“The Indie Game Area is an exhibition area for independent game developers,” TGS’ site reads. “This area gives game developers the opportunity to exhibit games for every platform at an affordable exhibition fee with the objective of creating new movements in the computer entertainment industry.”

Pretty words, to be sure, but coughing up roughly $1000 (99,900 Yen) isn’t in the budget for some independent devs. That Sony is covering the area fees speaks volumes about the company’s interest in indie games, and will only be a boon for the Show as a whole.
