Star Citizen could come to PS4

1 min read


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.

    If this is true, I won’t be a happy camper. I was holding out to upgrade my PC until SC was near release. This was truly the only PC exclusive that I was willing to fork out R 5000 (for the upgrade) to play. If this releases on PS4, I’ll get it for console. I really wanted an excuse to upgrade my PC, but I’d rather then use that extra money to buy games for the PS then.

    Inb4 PC Master race – Yes I know by buying a PS4 I’m buying a PC and therefore I’m upgrading my old PC by buying a console thus PC still wins…huh?

      Why did you have to put a disclaimer? I was poised to spew hatred & bile & you just preempt it all. Very unsporting sir 😉

    I just hope this comes to the Xbox with Kinetic 2.0, I want to be able to use my hands like I’m in a cockpit, and also I want to see how long it takes for Pizza Hut to deliver to the outskirts of Sol III and whether I’ll get it in under 30 minutes…

      Are you sure your joystick is long enough for Kinectic 2 to pick it up?

        A good point, and definitely a no. Probably why my current girlfriend makes me happy after she’s been in the fridge for a few hours… wait, what 0_O

          It’s true some batteries last longer when stored in the fridge 😀

      Geez I’m tired. I’ve actually laughed when I read you want to use your hands in a cockpit. I think my brain is reverting back to when I was 8.
