No Man's Sky is flying to PC just a bit after its PS4 debut

Then it's many men's sky

PlayStation 4 players better be fine with sharing their airspace, because those on PC will also have a chance to explore the procedurally generated lands of Hello Games' No Man's Sky. IGN reports that next month's issue of Edge Magazine contains a story in which a PC version of the game is officially confirmed, and that it'll come sometime after the PS4 timed-exclusive window is over.

No Man's Sky's managing director Sean Murray spoke of the two platforms by saying "I actually got in a bit of trouble for saying that we wanted the game to feel really console-y. We've always had PC in mind, but in my head (console-y) means solid frame-rate and immediate controls. I think a PC game can be 'console-y' and it's intended as a compliment, but I get in trouble for saying it."

While it feels like a PC version of the game was implied in the past, there's official word now. However, the duration of the exclusivity to PlayStation is still unknown. PC players would be wise to hope it's not long.

Wow. No Man's Sky looks stellar. And it's launching first on PlayStation 4, at least when it comes to consoles. It's a little hard to believe something this pretty was developed by a tiny indie studio that just got flooded out of their offices. My hat is off to you, Hello Games.
