If you’re an Xbox her and you’ve been keeping your eye on the hyped up Neir Automata then it looks like you’ll mostly be out of luck if you don’t buy a PS4 because the game pretty much isn’t coming to Xbox One. Now before Xbox fanboys try and send death threats to platinum games they did give a reason as to why the game is only on PS4. 

According to our source Neir Automata’s producer Yosuke Saito stated 

“There are currently no plans to release on this platform. “The main reason for this is that the Japanese market for Xbox One is not strong, so the decision was made to focus on PlayStation 4 rather than to split our efforts across two platforms. The biggest benefit to developing on one platform is that we did not have to split our time, allowing us to focus more on the quality,” Saito continued.” It is not about whether one platform is better than the other, it’s that from a development point of view were can devote more time to one platform.

In other words the game isn’t going to be available on Xbox One simply because the market for the console isn’t as big in Japan. There is a nice upside to the lack of availability is that the game should have better graphics since they’re only developing it for one platform (which has better graphics). Hopefully it gets ported over at some point in time so that everyone that wants to cop it doesn’t have to drop money for a PS4 or gaming PC.
