I believe this was a quoute about DX2, but it might be the ps2 version of DX.

Warren spector: "PC guys don't want to hear this, but we actually did just do a console game and we spent a lot of time working on the interface. And I look back on the PC version of Deus Ex and think 'what were we thinking, a dozen game screens?' We have a health screen and an augmentation screen and an inventory screen and a note screen and a goal screen and a map screen and a this screen and a that screen and we all screen for ice cream, it was stupid!"

I don't think it says that he prefers console interfaces. I get the impression that he prefers less complicated interfaces. That does not automatically translate to less complicated=console. It just means that because they were forced to simplify the interface for a console, he realized that the PC version was unnecessarily complex.

maxxq, I am aware of that. I used the term console interface in the same way the anti console members of this forum do.
