Why not wait till they finish with the consoles and get a lot of their team free again to do a proper version on the PC, instead of constantly bashing them.

Fanboys...damned if you do, damned if you don't. It's much much worse on sports forums. Fans will whine about not spending big bucks for an all star player and when the organization spends big bucks on an all star player and he ain't the messiah, they'll complain about why they spent the big bucks on him in the first place.

Hell, the Warframe devs ported their game to PS4 in 3 months and Digital Extremes is nowhere nearly as big as Bungie, who could likely get a decent port out in a small enough amount of time to allow them to make more profits from it.

Personally, I'd wager that there's some other reason for it (That, while it could be a good reason, may not be received as well as this by the gaming community) and that this is just an excuse.

I'm very sure, you're incorrect.

It took SE over a year to adapt FFXIV-2.0 to the Playstation 3 and it's not without faults, EXTREME faults. In fact, developement FOR the PS4 started almost 6 months ago and is progressing into next year...Early estimates put a PS4 version in June, if we're lucky...So, this goes well along with my point.

PROPER development of a game takes a lot of effort and resources.

If Bungie ported it over and the game "failed" they'd be left worse than they are without doing one, at all...The consumer is fickle.

I'm probably confusing which company it was that said it, I read it in a news article a few months back (Not long after the announcements, actually) and haven't really been able to find it since.

So, what are the Warframe devs doing, not a proper port? It's entirely possible Square aren't putting much manpower in the PS4 version yet in order to fix the PS3 version (Which has a much larger user base) first.
