"The Wii U still has pretty low system specs, so it came down to a choice between the next Microsoft console or the next Sony console. There were people at Sony who really liked the game and were keeping in touch with us about it, and so we naturally started going to their PS4 developer events, got a dev kit, and started playing with it. I don't have good communication with anyone at Microsoft right now, and haven't been disclosed on their next console, but all our technical people like the PS4 specs a lot more than the leaked Durango specs, and we like the positioning of the PS4 (it's about games) a lot more than what we perceive Microsoft's positioning is going to be."
"So we just found ourselves doing a PS4 port. And once we are doing that, it is not practical for us also to think about another console port. We were going to be a de facto console exclusive for Sony no matter what. As I mentioned, there are people at Sony who are very interested in The Witness, so they somehow percolated up through the ranks the idea of showing the game in the launch show. "

I hate the way the 360 and the PS3 are "multi-media" and "online social network" devices in the eyes of Microsoft and Sony, rather than pure games machines, and it looks like the PS4 and XBox 720 are going to be even more so. I want a games console to be a games console, and nothing more. Like everyone (and I mean everyone) I use a PC (some people use tablets or mobile phones) for multi-media and communication*, I never feel the need to do any of that on a console (except for game related stuff, of course).
* I play games on a PC too, but you know what I mean.
