Braid creator Jonathan Blow has explained why his upcoming game The Witness is releasing as a timed PS4 exclusive. He claims that the nature of Xbox 720 leaks led him to believe that Microsoft’s new rig isn’t just about games any more, while Sony’s renewed focus on gaming felt more appealing.

Independent developer Jonathan Blow, creator of Braid and the upcoming Witness, has said developing for Linux in its current form is unfeasible thanks to a 20% “productivity drain”. Posting on YCombinator, Blow said that he is keen on Linux in theory, but that debugging is just too laborious.

When hacker George (Geohot) Hotz was served with a temporary restraining order early in the evening of January 11, he had to have a good idea what was coming. So too must the other defendants on the stark legal papers prepared by Sony Computer Entertainment’s legal team – Hector Cantero, Sven Peter and 100 yet-to-be-named persons. One does not thumb their nose at mega-corporations lightly.
After a torrid fortnight, where PlayStation 3’s system security – namely its ability to determine whether code running is legitimate or not – has been laid bare by hacker group fail0verflow, Sony’s finally made its move.
Here, VG247 presents a report breaking down the the implications of the PS3 hack, what’s come already, what’s happening now, and who the real losers are in this complete fiasco.

It would appear that Jonathan Blow, the time-defying mind behind Braid, is looking to set a new project into motion. Over on the official Braid blog, Blow’s hoping to hire a programmer to “do very interesting work with full-body motion tracking.”
When asked by Joystiq if motion controls were being applied to his previously announced new project, The Witness, Blow was only able to say that he “can’t talk about this right now,” and added that “it may not even actually happen (depending on whether I can find someone qualified to do it!).”
So there we are.
