Isn't it like not an indie game if it has a publisher?

No, it is not an indie game if it was developed by sony, but sony publishes indie stuff all the time, they even have a whole indie/genre movie division called "Screen Gems"

Being published by a big company does not change the independent nature of the developer...it just helps a lot to get a wider distribution.

I have been getting conflicting reports as to what exactly defines an indie game. I have no idea at this point.

A game without support of a publisher, though games with the support of a publisher are still indies.

The f***?

Are they games any rational human being would actually care to buy? Oh they're not? Oh ok. Oh, this is clickbait and it's only "technically" Sony? Oh, ok.

Hopefully not. I've given way too much money to Sony, what with their overpriced console, overpriced games, and overpriced subscription service. Nintendo's paid online can't come soon enough.
