Amanita Design boss Jakub Dvorsky announced at GameCityNights in Nottingham this Friday that point-and-click adventure game Machinarium is coming to PlayStation Network later this year.

During a guest session at the talk, Dvorsky said it’s “very difficult” to bring a game to consoles.

“It’s much easier if you create a game for PC and Mac. Bringing it to consoles is a lot of hard work and a lot of hassle with companies.”

Along with PlayStation Network, Amanita is also bringing Machinarium to tablets. As for Xbox LIVE, Dvorsky’s said Microsoft has already refused the game.

“We were already refused by Microsoft to bring the game to Xbox,” he said.

“They weren’t interested because the game was already released for Mac and Windows, and Microsoft demanded it as part of an exclusivity deal.

“We’re not interested in Microsoft anymore.”

Thanks, Casual Gaming.

    “We’re not interested in Microsoft anymore.”

    I love this sentence. Not because i don’t like Microsoft ( i don’t care ), but because at least some developer said it publicly, while many others won’t say a word even though many think this way.
