When I asked Hall whether console manufacturers Sony and Microsoft had approached him about putting DayZ on an upcoming console he replied, "Yeah, we talked to both of them. But, as I'm sure you're aware, Sony lets you self-publish and they don't make you pay for updates. Microsoft requires you to have a publisher. They have no digital distribution strategy and they require you to pay $10,000, or whatever it is, for updates."
"What about Sony, then?" I asked.
"Oh, absolutely. We like them. I like what I saw on the PS4," Hall said. "I like what I saw on the Xbox in a lot of cases as well. I'm not s***ting on them. I'm kind of hopeful that Microsoft has just forgot to talk about its indie support. Maybe I'm being a bit naive."When asked about developing for PS4, Hall replied, "That's definitely something we'd look at, but we have to do the PC version first. Once we get the alpha out, that's a good time for us to run it up on a [PS4] dev kit and see what happens."http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...ndalone-to-ps4And what of Wii U?
"I don't know. I haven't really looked into it much. I doubt it," Hall replied.
Pretty big if it ends up happening.
Oh and Sony doesn't make you pay for updates now? Very interesting

Saw the first official gameplay they had at E3 and the zombies still move around like they are on speed. What i wanted Day Z to do the Division now provides me. Yeah no zombies in The Division but i get the gameplay i desire so no zombies is a small sacrifice.
Interesting part is that Sony doesn't charge for updates anymore. I wonder if that is true. Lets hope they don't go nuts with it

Hell yes! I would love for this to happen. I agree somewhat with HellsJester though. The Division looks like it will satisfy my appetite for open-world survival awesomeness.
