Sony has today revealed that they plan to heavily increase their funding into first-party games over the next year. The news comes from thegamer.com, who reported on Sony's investment call, where Chief Financial Officer for Sony Hiroki Totoki was quoted saying
"We intend to increase development personnel and other in-house costs by approximately ¥20 billion year-on-year, as we further strengthen our in-house software."
The funding equates to roughly £132 million, which in itself is enough to fund 2 – 3 AAA games if they were at the higher end of spending in their budget. Personally, I would love to see a chunk of this investment put into Indie games, which as a community has been getting much more light shone on it than ever before.
