Tim Schafer is looking for ways to use the PS4


Tim Schafer and his team at Double Fine Games have confirmed that they are currently looking at what the Playstation 4 is capable of before deciding what they can produce for the console.

"Let me just say we've been talking with Sony, can I say that? I don't know, I think I might get in trouble." said Schafer during a recent chat to the Official Playstation Magazine.

"This is one of the first times where we've been approached by a platform holder like Sony and asked, first, what do you guys want from this new box? We have this new feature, what could you do with it? We've already got some guys playing with some of the new features to see what we can do with it".

It certainly looks like Sony's new strategy of putting developers first is working successfully, when questioned on the matter, Schafer replied: "Yeah, I mean it's not that hard to win over developers because all we want is to be treated with just a little bit of reason. Because often you just get told the most unreasonable, crazy things and you're like 'really' That's how you're going to treat us?"

"Just doing things like letting us patch our games when we want to, put our games on sale and release our games in territories that they should be released in, just doing a few things like that can make a developer very enamoured of you".

Sony are going about it the right way it seems. Always a good thing.

Patches when the dev is ready to put them out is great, because with Gearbox and Borderlands2 the PC version was getting patched months before console would allow, and even then that was tied to the DLC release.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
