Sony Music launches Unties games publishing label, PlayStation seemingly not involved

Despite the rough development ride that the title has had, the extra funding and boost from Sony's Unties will undoubtedly polish and expand the game in the way that the creators had always intended.

Sony Music Entertainment is turning into a multi-platform games publisher and intends to bring a selection of indie titles to platforms incluidng the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Sony, who normally only publishes PlayStation titles, says Unties has been set up "to unearth high-quality [indie] titles ... and utilize SME's vast entertainment business wisdom in order to expose them to as many consumers as possible". Still, it is a little odd to see a Sony game pop up on Nintendo Switch, as Sony has been nearly entirely focused on the PlayStation 4 lately.

So while the thought of taking The Last of Us, the Uncharted series, or any number of 1 party PlayStation 3 (the Switch couldn't handle PlayStation 4 titles as they are) games on the go with your Switch - that isn't happening. Last Standard and Merkava Avalanche do hold a listing of "PC/TBA", however, which suggests that the Switch and possibly the Xbox One could be included in future releases.

Tiny Metal is a Japanese-created arcade game that takes heavy inspiration from the likes of Advance Wars.

The disastrous economic impact of Brexit has come increasingly clear in recent weeks, with United Kingdom growth slowing and inflation continuing rise .

Tiny Metal released a Kickstarter campaign on September 19th, 2016 that ultimately met its cancellation a month later falling $17,130 short of its $50,000 goal.

It is not a coincidence that the first game under the Unties label is from an independent developer.

The first such title that is going to be released on November 21st is Tiny Metal which is going to come out for the PS4, PC and Switch.

Sony has been somewhat standoffish towards its competitors as of late, especially regarding the allowance of cross-platform play on the PlayStation 4, so it seems a bit odd that they would produce games for Nintendo. As a guy who loves indie games, I can't complain.

Below you can check out the trailers for the games mentioned above, alongside a batch of screenshots for all.
