I'm merely guessing, but I'd say that supporting PS4 shouldn't be 
too hard because it's also an x86 based platform and the OS is a 
fork of FreeBSD 9. The other consoles are harder to support 
because they are PowerPC- or ARM-based with operating systems 
that are further removed from what the D toolchains currently 
support. A considerable amount of tinkering would certainly be 
involved. And the console devkit NDAs will typically prevent you 
from sharing any such work with outside communities.
