Star Citizen creator Chris Roberts is interested in bringing his Kickstarter-funded space trading and combat game to PlayStation 4, he told GamesIndustry.biz.
“[The PlayStation 4]’s a nice piece of hardware, but I think it’s going to be hard for them to go much less than $400 without taking a massive loss on it,” said Roberts. “The good news is that it’s essentially a PC, so that means PC owners will get much better ports of console games.
“I’m not a PC elitist by any means; if I could be on the PS4, and they were open, and I could do the updating and all the sort of stuff we’re trying to do on Star Citizen, then I would definitely consider putting it on PS4, because it’s essentially a PC with a friendlier operating system.”
Sony has previously shown its support for indie games on PlayStation 4 with titles like Jonathan Blow’s The Witness, Lukewarm Media’s Primal Carnage: Genesis, and Zombie Studios’ Blacklight: Retribution.
Star Citizen is slated for a PC release in November 2014.
