Sony approached Double Fine for PS4 game development, studio has people 'playing with' features

After being approached by Sony, Double Fine currently has employees checking out the system's potential for future work, founder Tim Schafer told PlayStation Official Magazine UK during PAX East.

Speaking with the publication, Schafer said that Double Fine has "already got some guys playing with some of the new features to see what we can do with it."

On the topic of Sony's "developer first" strategy, Schafer added that winning developers over isn't a hard thing to do.

"All we want is to be treated with just a little bit of reason," Schafer said. "Because often you just get told the most unreasonable, crazy things ... 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 enamored of you".

During a PAX East panel, Double Fine announced the name of its Kickstarter-funded adventure game, Broken Age. The game has already been confirmed for Ouya.
