Rumor: Starbound Possibly Heading to Sony Consoles After PC Release
Interstellar all-in sandbox title Starbound may still be in development for the PC, but judging from a couple of tweets today by Chucklefish's Tiy, the team may be bringing the game to Sony consoles post its PC release.
Tiy took a stroll over to the PlayStation EU community forums last week and posed an interesting question: "Would you like to see Starbound on PS3 / PS4 / Vita?"
It is no surprise that the response was overwhelmingly positive. Four days and 13 pages of Sony fan support later, Tiy posted the following on Twitter:
Just getting back from a nice meeting at sony— Tiy (@Tiyuri) July 30, 2013
With the short gap between the thread's creation and Tiy's mysterious tweet, Starbound may make its way to Sony consoles.
Don't be sad, PC gamers!
Now is not the time to grumble about "consoles ruining PC gaming yet again". The above is a small piece of good news amidst the developer's constant updates on how the game is coming along.
The good folks over at Chucklefish are still updating the official blog everyday with information on what they are hard at work on. For example:
- Today - NPC behavior, monster portraits, sounds, and a bunch of other stuff.
- Yesterday - Ore distribution, the tutorial quests, and a bunch more other stuff.
- Repeat "X + other stuff" everyday for the past few weeks.
The transparency Chucklefish has shown ever since they began taking pre-orders is comforting to those who have been waiting for the game since its big announcement in 2012. Starbound is coming, and this new hubbub about the game heading to consoles doesn't mean it will be any less awesome once it finally goes into beta.
