Sony to Sponsor Indie Developers Once More at Tokyo Game Show

According to a report from Dual Shockers, Sony looks to be getting back into the business of supporting indie developers as they sent out a press release to selective media outlets letting people know they'd be sponsoring people for Tokyo Game Show. The company has made it sort of a regular program in the past where they would help companies who didn't have the cash get a spot in the Japanese video game convention find a place on the showroom floor, and this would be the fourth year in a row the company has made such an offer.


As of right now, mostly because it's too soon to say, Sony hasn't revealed who they'll be helping out for 2018. But considering we're only five months away from the show and applications are closing soon, we'll probably find out more about who will be involved with the program around the time of E3. Sony will also be sponsoring Sense of Wonder Night, which is an event around Tokyo Game Show that exclusively has indie developers showing off their games to the public. Think of it like the Nindies event that Nintendo held in Seattle during PAX West. TGS will be happening from September 20th-23rd at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba near Tokyo.
