Roberts “would definitely consider,” putting Star Citizen on PS4

Tuesday, 23rd April 2013 21:21 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Chris Roberts has said he hasn’t ruled out releasing Star Citizen on other platforms, such as PS4, but there’s nothing to announce at present.

Speaking with GI International, Roberts said the console was a “nice piece of hardware,” and “essentially a PC.”

“The good news is that it’s essentially a PC, so that means PC owners will get much better ports of console games,” he said. “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.”

Roberts is of the opinion Sony won’t b able to release PS4 for under $400 without taking a loss, still, despite such a possibility, he feels the hardware business will be “healthy for quite a while.”

“I think the console business will be healthy for quite a while, I think the PC business, the tablet business, the mobile business, they’ll all be healthy,” he said. “I think there’s money to be made in all of them.

“I just like the PC business because there aren’t a lot of people competing there.”

Star Citizen is slated for an estimated release date of November 2014.

    Not a PC elitist? Wasn’t this the guy who basically said that the PC would always be better than games consoles? If I were Sony I’d refuse him a dev license, might shut his big mouth!

    If I were Sony I’d like money, and getting a cool game on my platform would be a good way to get some.

    @#2 Well see, the way it works is that some people are allowed to think that one thing is better than another thing, while still enjoying both things. I know, it’s confusing.

    @#4 This guy comes across as total hypocrite. First he’s slagging off consoles then he’s saying they’re actually rather good. He should make his mind up!

    @5 He said PC would always be more powerful than consoles, he never said consoles were crap.
