Consoles "couldn't possibly handle" Star Citizen, developer says

That sucks, was hoping it would come to consoles because the game looks amazing.

Here is the quote where one of the developers state there isn't enough power

http://www.pcgamer.com/2014/07/14/consoles-couldnt-possibly-handle-star-citizen-developer-says/

. " Eric "Wingman" Peterson says it couldn't be done anyway, because consoles, including the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, simply don't have the power to drive the game."

That goes for PS4 also but the game is extremely large and the graphics are well detailed. I'm sure it'll require a beefy setup of around $1200 to max with around a $500 PC minimum with well selected parts to run. Hope the game does well, especially with over 40 million in backing by regular Joes. Maybe with DirectX 12 it'll improve the efficiency of the hardware and they'll be able to bring it over, or with the cloud handling all the AI. Might be possible, I'll not get my hopes up.

The real question Xeeh is how can Forza 5 ever outclass Forza 5?

I would love to see Star Citizen on console but would rather it stay where it won't be gimped or subject to Microsoft and Sony's rules. I'm getting a new pc just for this. Hopefully it's a worthy successor to Freelancer.

Nobody in their right mind ever thought Star Citizen could come to consoles.

In related news, General Motors say they "have no plans to create a 'space fleet'".


Dan "The Man" Ammann says, "it couldn't be done anyway, automobiles, including ones manufactured by GM, simply aren't equipped with enough power for space travel".

What about how could Star Citizen be better than Star Citizen?

Not my question but I'd start with the cardboard cutout crowd, never again try to charge $100 real dollars for a single DLC car and finally upgrade the backgrounds.
