Star Citizen could come to PS4 By Geoffrey Tim Posted on April 24, 20131 min read24 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr Chris Roberts, creator of those old-timey space shooter sims you loved in your youth, is coming back with a big bang. His new game, Star Citizen, has received $8 million in crowd funding is set to revitalise the genre he helped create. And it could be coming to the PlayStation 4.A firm member of the master race, and a staunch PC adherent, Roberts told GI International that he thinks the PlayStation 4 is a “nice piece of hardware,” because it’s “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.” And while there are no plans just yet to bring Star citizen to Sony’s hussied-up PC, it’s something he’d certainly consider. Despite all things PC running in his blood, he’s quite optimistic about the future of consoles too.“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.”I sincerely hope that Star Citizen makes its intended splash, making space combat games viable again. If it doesn’t, there’s going to be a swarm of really angry kickstarter backers.
