Those are not "Sony's indie titles." They will be available everywhere. Sony is merely highlighting them (and giving some of them money) for publicity purposes. Anyone with a real interest in independent gaming beyond bullet points in favor of one gated hardware platform over another would do well to stick with PC, where independent games are released literally every day. Self-publishing on the PS4 is a big deal for developers, but unless you are allergic to playing games on a computer it's not that consequential for any informed gamer.
