Famed game creator and astronaut Richard Garriott has indicated to EDGE that a PlayStation 4 port of fantasy RPG Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues is possible.
The game, currently being funded via Kickstarter, marks Garriott's return to the genre he helped pioneer with early favorites like Ultima. With Shroud, Garriott seeks to counter the genre's stagnant focus on level-grinding with a return to role-playing roots. That means a sharp focus on meaningful character choices and an immersive world ripe with lore and possibility.
The good news for PlayStation gamers: since the game's Unity engine is so flexible, EDGE notes that Garriott isn't ruling out a PS4 port. "We're developing on the Unity platform, and one of the great advantages of that is that we can cross-compiles to basically, everything," Garriott explained. "And [whatever] platforms can run it well, there's no reason we wouldn't want to cross-compile onto those platforms."

Ugh...what a waste of a game. Watched the dev diary for and this game honestly looks very lame. I love how the guy is talking in the video as if his game is so revolutionary just because you dont have a checklist of quests to complete. You can just do what you want. That would be something a bit more thought inspiring if the visuals of the game didnt look like something dug up from a playground sandbox and the fighting didnt look like something out of Runescape. Now due to the above, it just seems like they were too lazy to make the quests more meaningful, I mean, there are still quests in the game, it just doesnt let you load up on them.
...smoking 20 packs of cigs a day for 50 years could develop something better than this. No thanks. Don't bring your game anywhere NEAR ps4 please. We can do without these types of software dragging the generation back. Just put it on the ps3 or something. People also still play their ps2s I think too, You can also look into that.
