SOMA = muscle relaxer

PC and PS4 are Indie Dev friendly

XB1 not so much

Looks very interesting and the last part reminds me of aliens.

So why did Microsoft reject this game? I mean if its coming to both the PS4 and PC it should come to the Xbox One as well. And I doubt that the developers forgot about the Xbox One so I believe that its Microsoft's fault that the game isn't coming to their console.

It's the developers choice. PS4 is easy to develop for, Cerny wasn't kidding with those PS2-PS1 devtimes being possible on PS4

PS4 allows devs to cut development time down by 8-10 months! That includ porting from PC as well, PS4 is powerful as well so add that it's architecture and you have the best candidate for PC ports from small devs like in this case.

According to Cerny´s presentation just to get a graphic engine working on last gen, it took way too long, for PS3 it could take between 6-12 months (don't know the X360 but not faster than 6 months I guess)

Today, to get a graphics engine running on PS4 it takes 1-2 months...just like on PS1!

This is just the beginning, this is what SONY meant when they said they didn't pay for exclusives on PS2, not all devs have a huge budget so they choose what pays-off better for them

For a small dev with a non-so commercial game, porting to X1 sounds like risky, cost more than PS4 and MSFT might have other demands, like releasing at the same time, same quality, not free DLC over XBL, etc..all that adds dev costs and too much stuff for a small PC dev to get into.

Then you have installbase, PS4 will have larger from day one and the more of these games ads to the PS4 games libary the more console gamers realise which console offers those hidden gems.

In other words the developer neglected the Xbox One due to the elevated development costs caused by the difficulty of development. Which means that developing this game on the PC and PS4 is inexpensive when compared to the Xbox One. Microsoft should have listened to developers instead of ignoring them.

I think its because Sony is going to the developers and asking them to develop for the PS4, and I'm sure that frictional games never thought of being on consoles.

I feel like I've played enough formulaic games this gen. I want the weird stuff. And it seems as if the PS4 is getting all the weird love.
