Ark Survival Evolved PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Here's a weird one: there are a handful of people on the web furious at Sony because it won't allow Studio Wildcard to release Ark: Survival Evolved on the PlayStation 4 until it's, er, finished. The game is available in Early Access on the PC and Xbox One – and, the last we heard, is in a terrible state – but the Japanese giant doesn't offer a similar initiative on its system.

This is what Studio Wildcard had to say on the matter: "As for the PS4 Release of Ark: Survival Evolved, it is currently up to Sony. We've been informed that we can't release the game on this platform until it has been finished. We would like nothing more than to make Ark available on PS4 as soon as possible, as we already have an awesome PS4 version of the game running internally."

Call us old fashioned, but isn't this a good thing? We know that modern game development is more iterative than it's ever been, and studios can glean a lot of feedback from Early Access releases – but do we really want unfinished games popping up on the PlayStation Store? You could argue that they already do, but let us remind you of the state Ark was in a few months ago.

Personally, we reckon that Sony should stick to its guns here – but do you disagree? Try to survive the comments section below.
