Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida says indie developers are currently showing more enthusiasm for Project Morpheus than major third party publishers.

Alongside Sony’s first-party studios, Yoshida thinks indie developers may lead the first wave of PS4 VR software development because their business practices are less restricted than those of larger studios.

Yoshida also explained that without the finances necessary to compete directly with multi-million dollar projects, indie developers are forced to come up with less conventional ideas, which ultimately proves to be beneficial.

There are many popular video games which have been launched on mobile devices some of them are a simple and others are a completely new game based on the franchise. There is one such new game which will make its way to the Android powered NVIDIA shield console and it is a special version of Portal.

This game will be able to take advantage of NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 GPU and the Shield console is further equipped with a 72-core GeForce graphics chip. It is still unclear whether it will arrive on other Android based devices sometime in the future.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has defended “brutal violence” in movies ahead of his new film Sabotage, in which the 66-year-old plays the head of a special unit of the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) whose members are viciously killed and mutilated after a cartel bust.

Schwarzenegger, the former Governor of California, said: “It’s a bit of an homage to the films that I grew up on, and directors like Brian De Palma, and Walter Hill and Sam Peckinpah who made very brutal kind of masculine movies. I think violence is political now: ‘maybe if there is no violence in movies, there will be no violence in the world.’ I don’t believe that. The video games our children play are much, much more violent than anything in this movie.”
