If he's concerned about 360/PS3 not being capable enough for his game, then I'm not sure how much of the PC market he's expecting to capture. Is my 8800GT not enough for your masterpiece, Jonathan? But apparently it's okay on iOS?

I think his actual justification is in that third paragraph: doesn't like paying licensing but likes iOS.

Also that screenshot doesn't look like anything current gen couldnt handle. Agree with Woffls.

And yet the iOS fees are still horrendously high!

The only reason I think of is the render distance. But then Bethesda managed more than that in Skyrim and Gearbox seem to have managed it with Borderlands 2!

Excuses excuses. We'll have the last laugh! ...maybe.

All I hear from this guy is a whinge about making games and platform holders, little wonder his back catalog will never take residence on any machine I own.

Blow loves to be in the middle of the media spotlight - which is a shame, as I think it was they trying to reach this stage that encouraged him (like so many others) to go all-out with their ideas. The Witness... doesn't look all that interesting, not does his statement hold anything but bitterness and greed.

What a shame - so much potential still held within him, as well...
