    why is it a huge secert

    I've been looking into how people even program game for consoles...and I even emailed the Unreal people about this.

    Yes, the page says you need to take your idea through the company that you want to have the game put onto the console

    But, as is, Wii U and PS4 allows indie game makers to upload games onto their stuff without going through the process of having Sony or Nintendo to own your game.

    But they don't seem to go into detail about the process.

    And the Unreal people only give out the console coding if you go through the process of needing the companies approval.

    And I even emailed them about what the process was...they never emailed me back.

    So...what the hell do you do?

    1# What are you talking about? You should learn telling others informations in a better way.
    2# As far as I know, license for consoles costs 50.000$(standard price) or another price discussed with epic when buying.

      There's no secret.

      You need to get a development kit for the system you want to develop for, then get an agreement with the company to allow you to publish the game on their system.
      Note that UDK cannot be used for consoles.

        Please read what you just typed

        There it is, that what EVERYONE says. Ok, what's the process? That's what I need to know and whenever I ask this, everyone just says the same thing and doesn't go into detail.

        Well, how the hell are indie game companies putting their games onto the PS4? And yes, Sony doesn't own those games that are put on their (they're maybe getting 30% profit from the sales, like how Stream does...but they don't own it)

          Indies don't develop for consoles- they can't. Only those, who epic likes, because they make an awesome game, get a ue3 license, and later get a job at epic.

            Indies do develop for consoles, but the barrier to entry is high.

            There are indies working on the Ps4, and those developers have a relationship with Sony. If you want to develop for a console, you need to negotiate an agreement with the platform holder. There are secrets; trade secrets - which is why a lot of information is not in the public domain.

              Yes, indie DOES make games for consoles.

              Did you miss the part were Sony is ALLOWING indie to make games for their console. Wii U does it.

              So, clearly is small indie companies can make games onto these new systems.

              Indie just means they're not backed up with a publisher

                That's what the email kept saying, but they don't tell you...oh, who to contact about such a thing. Would be nice if they tell you what you need to put together, who to contact...that's nice information to know.

                  You know, Google also allows indies to develop for Android for free, and still, only ue3 full license supports it, even though other engines allow it for free. I think you should e-mail the email where you can get helped, or get a license.

                      Well, that's for Sony TV

                      the only reason why I found this

                      http://us.playstation.com/develop/

                      was through a yahoo answer, it didn't show up on the 1st page

                        The process of getting a game on these platforms involves having a game worthy of negotiations with owner company (or publishers). By the time you make such a game, you will find out most answers through experience or new contacts.
                        Meanwhile, many "secrets" can be uncovered simply by doing a Google search, like ambershee suggested above

                          The link you're looking for is on the page I gave you. I did check before posting it.

                            Those mobile and tablet games...say differently. I highly doubt they thought, "oh hey, these mobile games are worth our time" and if Sony doesn't own the game anyway...they don't get any the money. So, in the end, it isn't worth their time because they don't own the games

                              It is, the more games there are for ps, the more people buy ps, the more money gets sony.
