Though I'll probably stick with PC, thanks

Joining the previously-announced Windows, Mac, Linux, and Xbox 360 releases of Haemimont Studios' Tropico 5 is a PlayStation 4 version of the simulation game. Kalypso still won't give us a release date, but the publisher did say the PS4 port would make good use of the DualShock 4 and its feature set. I have to imagine that means full TouchPad support.

The Tropico series is one I have somehow managed to avoid playing despite having it on good authority that I'd love its unique brand of city building. Tropico 5 spans the 19th century to the 21st and introduces both cooperative and competitive mulitplayer for up to four people.
