This game is great fun on the PC. Hopefully this will not slow down the PC development since the game is still in early access.

It has exploration, base building, crafting. Sure it's not a looker but it's very fun and addictive. Graphics is not everything even though one can think so looking at the Uncharted 4 thread. ;)

People need to understand that a game of this scope something has to be downgraded for it to work. The base building alone is a massive performance hit and tbh you guys should be grateful a game like this is coming to consoles.

I may give this game a chance after a price drop (cause it really is ugly). I hope it doesn't affect PC development either since I'm not seeing this doing well on consoles anyway.

We didn't ask for it, and we have games with scope and graphics. But to be honest, I'd choose Rachet & Clank over Minecraft anyday.

Clearly we're not worthy of this ugly piece of shit.
