The Witness confirmed as a PS4 launch title

Braid creator Jonathan Blow will bring his next title to the PlayStation 4; game will be one of the console's launch titles.

During Sony's unveiling of its new PlayStation 4 system at today's New York press conference, the publisher announced its continued support of independent developers.

Braid creator Jonathan Blow took to the stage to announce that his upcoming game The Witness will debut on the PS4 at launch.

The game will see players explore an abandoned island to solve puzzles. Blow explained the game is really about epiphany, and each puzzle will have a single idea behind it.

The game will feature 25 hours of gameplay.

I think it will be a timed exclusive looking forward to playing it on PC/Linux, I'm honestly surprised this is even coming out on the PS4 at all considering Braid originally launched as an XBLA exclusive for over a year.

Bad article title... The Witness IS NOT PS4 exclusive, it is however the only CONSOLE The Witness will be appearing on.

I thought he meant it will launch first on ps4.  He said launch window exclusive in his presentation.  So I thought he meant ps4 first then pc and whatever else later.  Kinda like cod map packs on xbox

Hmm, too bad. That game looked pretty cool, but not cool enough for me to want to get a PS4 just to play it. Well, they just blew a potential sale.

What? Seriously? I was really looking forward to playing htis and theres no way I'm buying a PS4 at launch (even though PS3 is by far my favourite console, that doesn't guarentee that I'll like PS4)

I want it to look bloody good, but I couldn't figure out what I was watching. So for now it sits in my "looks bloody confusing" bin.

Didn't look that good to me. Looked like a PS3 game mostly. DriveClub was more interesting to me, even though those graphics and options have probably already been done on the PC years ago. The game still looked pretty impressive. With weaather condition and varies time of day driving. Looked better then GT5.
