Sean Murray hints that while No Man's Sky is definitely coming on PlayStation 4, the PC version may arrive at a later point, since Hello Games is a small team.
This is a great news!
They mean "coming to the PS4" right?
I'd say that is the proper way of putting it. OT: No Man's Sky is currently only in development for the PS4, but they are hoping in the future to also release it on PC. I don't think the Dev has given an iota of indication of any Xbox One port in the foreseeable future. Out of all the games showcased at E3 this one caught my attention the most. I just want to see so much more of it. For me personally it had the most "Wow" factor. UC4 definitely made me say damn, but I know what to expect story and gameplay-wise from Uncharted. No Man's Sky is a whole new ballgame and has me wondering more about what it has in store.
Agreed, I can't wait for this game. Although I'd love to play it on my uber PC at 4K....Let's hope it won't take too long.
for me the Jury is still out on No Man's Sky! I mean all I have seen is some colorful worlds but NOT MUCH going on in those worlds. No Man's Sky is very similar to Elite:Dangerous and StarCitizen for the PC (which I have already plumped down $150 for Elite Beta and an insane amount of cash for all the stuff I got for StarCitizen! These 2 games I have seen enough to make me spend a bunch of money, heck at the very first tid-bit of info from these games so much was announced that I immediately wanted them but NMS has NOT shown me or even told me anything other than "Never ending procedural World" that are pretty. That's NOT enough. Very very Cool but not enough. SC I know I can get out of my ship and go FPS/TPS mode, plus the gameplay is cut throat like Eve online with space combat simulation tossed in. Elite Dangerous same thing for the most part and both games have persistent game worlds meaning whatever I do to effect or change the world, other gamers will feel the effects of that. That's really important to me than just seeing bland game worlds that I can't change. SO if NMS NEVER comes to PC I don't think I will care because so far it seems like it will be HYPED UP but then fall short plus SC and E:D have already delivered solid info and NOT just Hype.
This is awesome news!
Yep. Sony has been an amazing indie supporter, and that's why they are getting this amazing game. Their Indie approach is paying off. I don't think this is exclusive, but why are some Xbox Fanboys concened about it? They apparently hate indies since they've been bashing Indie games on PS4. Well, this is what you get for making fun of indies. No Man's Sky for you(For now), or maybe a year later after the PS4 release.
I was thinking that the game is not exclusive or is a timed exclusive but how does the [email protected] thing work I thought if you publish to xbox one then you can not publish on any other system so how does that work.
@joey The clause only applies if you are taking all the "free" stuff from microsoft to help develop your game, like developer xboxs, unity license etc atm. After launch they should be able to afford the equipment with the money they make so clause wouldnt apply.
@lemoncake Okay that makes more sense thanks.
...and the hits just keep on comin'. Great news for PS4 owners.
...and the hits just keep on comin'. Yes they do! This is great news for PS4 owners. Sony needs to trademark this game, bring these guys over to PlayStation Nation permanently! This game will fit well along side other exploration games like Journey and Flower!
What's the difference...it'll be on PC
Yep. Sony has been an amazing indie supporter, and that's why they are getting this amazing game. Their Indie approach is paying off.
Indeed, I'm not a big fan of indie games generally but this is an exception. I just hope it won't be nearly impossible to play with friends
Been gaming for 20+ and over the last 5 years the indies are where you get originality!
Why are you not a fan? surely more games is better from smaller company's that aren't as limited by IP's as well as the third party and first party titles. It all means more diversity in story and gameplay and genre and gaming as a whole. Would you rather have games from third party and first party developers or don't you enjoy having such a quantity that you may choose widely and freely? OT: Can't wait for this game, seems intriguing to say the very least :) Glad you're making an exception anyway, very true darx, very true...
Nice PC , Then XB1 will sure to follow...
Why would that be? I think it will follow but not necessarily soon, probably they don't want to piss off Sony after being put at the center of the stage
Hello Games isn't "currently talking" about No Man's Sky on Xbox One http://www.totalxbox.com/78... Eventually, but considering this news, the link I posted and the fact they're a 7 man team, it could be awhile.
I Remember reading an article saying games can port from pc to xbox1 in one or two days.... if so then why not sooner than later, like you said there a small team who definitely needs to reach out to every platform.... http://www.cinemablend.com/... remember reading an article saying with directx12 ports from pc to xb1 can take 1 or 2 days.
That would just be assets, not the entire game.
No Man's Sky on xbone isn't really a priority
No at priority? GTFOH. Why wouldn't this small team want to make the most money possible? Console wars don't apply to devs...they make games for a living unlike the majority of the fan boys here on N4G. It will come to XB1 as well as PC http://www.gameinformer.com...
So out of the ps4 version and xbone version of No Man's Sky, which one is currently the priority for Hello Games? The Xbone version is not a priority
@Jim Because their previous success has been on playstation consoles which outsold xbox versions 4-1(joe Danger)
Because they're a small team. XB1 is third in order of priority, if that. At the moment, though, as detailed by the dev's own words, they're not thinking about it. Geez, man. We know you love Xbox, but at least make sensible arguments.
What do you mean could arrive? I thought the game was confirmed for PC, WTF.
Like the article said they are a very small team so they need to focus on one version at a time and they never confirmed PC being as they were present at the Sony E3 conference.
Check the link above they have confirmed PC but no XB1 as of yet.
This and Rime are two of my top anticipated games.
@DialgaMarine You seem to forget console people bashed indies all last gen as ammunition against pc for ages saying thats all we had to play and they are crap same with the F2P.But now they are on consoles indies get praised and so do F2P.So you saying xbox gamers don't deserve it neither does the ps4 as you all hated on indies last gen and F2P.
not true at all, Cyril. indies did well on ps3. look at the success "that game company" had on ps3. do some research before posting.
PS3 had FtP games as well. Ace Combat: Infinity Back to the Future: Episode 1 BreakQuest: Extra Evolution Buzz Quiz Player Capcom Arcade Cabinet DC Universe Dead or Alive 5: Ultimate Core Fighters Dust 514 Everybody Dance Digital Free Realms Frobisher Says Jetpack Joyride Killzone 3 Multiplayer Pinballistick Ridge Racer: Driftopia Soul Calibur: Lost Swords Spartacus Legends Tekken: Revolution Toro's Friend Network Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Zen Pinball 2 this is as of 2013 so i'm sure there's more now.
The question isn't whether consoles had indie or F2P games, but the attitudes of console gamers here on N4G and other gaming sites. You guys bashed the PC all the time and tried to downplay all the games the PC got by writing them off as "just stupid indie games". Now console fanboys are using indie games in their pathetic console war against each other. Same thing goes for resolution and framerate.
This is the game I've been looking for!
I thought it was coming to PC first/same time as PS4. Then again, a four person team....
Really interesting looking game, will be interesting to find out more about the gameplay mechanics.
Depending on the timescale of a pc release, right now this is my only reason to go out and buy a PS4.
Can't figure out why so many people here think this is great news. This game looks great, the more people who get to try it, the better.
I think your looking at it wrong, it was only confirmed coming to the PS4. Now they are saying that a PC ver is very likely. So yes that is good news since more people will get to try it
I had no idea. I thought it was PS4/PC at the same time. That's weird. So glad it's coming to PS4 though. I can't wait!
If this game does come to multiple platforms I hope that they all share the same Universe, and that players can move between platforms and keep all their settings etc. If this game turns out as good as it looks then I'll probably end up getting it on PS4 and PC - so being able to jump between them with the same account would be brilliant.
Portal 2 on PS3/PC allowed you to carry over accounts, cant see why this wouldn't allow the same to happen. But that's an issue for DEVS to arrange.
Yeah, it was nice on Portal 2 (although slightly disappointing as well that Valve didn't do more with Steam on PS3)... My concern here is that the dev is really small, so I'm just wondering if they have the time / resource to be able to implement cross platform play / accounts. Fingers crossed, as it would be a nice feature
It would be crazy for a game like this not to come to PC
No Man's Sky Definitely Coming On PS4, But Could Arrive Later On PC. I don't care what platform it's on.... JUST GIVE ME THE DAM GAME!!!! lmao. Seriously though, really am looking forward to this :D
No Man Sky is the flavor of the month for sure but as I see more of this game I am becoming more skeptical they are going to deliver to the level that most are putting this game at already.
hmm need a PC version... hopefully it comes
Sony would have to give hello games massive $$$ to keep this off PC. It could be the next mine craft or whatever. Lets assume 15 million PS4's by the time this comes out. Double maybe triple that number and you've got the potential PC user base. As an indie it makes no sense for them to ignore PC. As for xbox one. I think Hello Games picked their side. The wording is deliberate and maybe they are not ruling out xbox one further down the line but it definitely seems Sony have gotten in there and are not coming out.
Didn't sony help pay for some of this game? I have no idea and i could have just made that up :)
Honestly, there's a difference between " The PC version needs more time to complete." and "We would like to have a PC version." Which tells me the focus is completely on the PS4 for the time being. Which is completely and totally fine, really mean that. But it really makes me less excited for an eventual PC version. Everything may work out, but I'm pretty skeptical about a PC version. Hope I'm wrong and I hope the PS4 people actually buy it.
Well this is on my list of most wanted for ps4 Bloodbourne Fallout(someday) Deep Down(if it's not ruined by F2P model) KH3 No Mans sky All my friends who are Sci-Fi nerds have this is a top game for them as well. i do hope others feel the same the ceiling for this game is non existent at the moment
Nope. This is the wrong way to go about doing this, and it's pretty hilarious some of the responses in here. When Hello Games got flooded and Phil Spencer said he was reaching out to HG, folk on this very site were getting nervous "Gee, I hope they don't try to lock up the game with some sort of bullshit exclusivity!" AND WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT. Sony has seemingly locked the game up in a timed exclusive manner and no one bats a damn eyelash. It'll likely be like Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, a timed console release, then a push to other platforms with more content, but still. Lots of hypocrisy here.
Well I thought MS was going to get exclusivity based off their $$$. I pretty much let the game slip off my radar so I wouldn't be disappointed.Little did I realize that Sony had spread goodwill way earlier with the pub fund help with Joe Danger. That game sold extremely well on ps3 and poorly on 360 when it eventually launched a year later. Not everyone thinks exclusivity is bullshit. I love it, especially when the console that will help sales the most for a small dev is the one that gets the bone. It's obvious xb1 will get the game with some more bells and whistles...later. In this case it is going to be for a rather long time due to the team size. PvZ is launching 6 months later and that is with a much larger dev team.
xbone will get no mans sky when they manage to hit 8million sales or when hell freezes over, which ever happens first.
This is why no one should mock indie games. I personally think this was the best game shown at E3. Sony would be smart to lock this down and keep it away from Microsoft, but I wouldn't be surprised if it eventually makes its way to the X1. We'll see what happens!
No Man's Sky was the real standout at E3. There was a huge applause for it during the Sony E3 Experience at the theatre I went to. Restored my faith that not everyone is all about AAA but for the little guys.
Sounds like the game I'd by from Steam in the future.
Will take a look on PC when it comes out nice.
might as well make it ps4 exclusive noone on the pc buys there games just pirates everything, it will sell better on consoles to so memo to devs forget the pc and dont waste your time on it
was nervous with anticipation when this game was first announced be waiting for a game like this ever since I played frontier elite on the Amiga but could never afford an Amiga at the time. All space games that came out after that were just crappy shooters at best you could fly from one area In Space to another but never land on planets all seemed shallow compared to elite that I played on a much older machine. It was annoying for ages as no sign of a new elite game just rumors played some beta space games on the Mac but quite poor. Couldn't believe how great no mans sky looked when it was announced instantly became one of my most wanted games but was convinced it was PC only and might never come out on the consoles. Couldn't believe my luck when they announced it was coming to ps4 first def made the right choice when I chose to buy the ps4 thankfully.
