    Wait what? So there's doesn't any deliberate exclusivity?

    The PC delay could be a real tech reason: to port it to PC.

    And announcing it even before PS4 version released?

    Who's working as Kojima's business relation? It seems they are superb!

    Got tons of support from Sony, from big stars, and now announcing pc release before PS4 got released.

    Or... Kojima did the business relation himself?

    He's kinda jack of all trades, master of everything...

    Maybe makes sense to announce other platform before honest reviews hit that might possibly sour the game's market potential? *shrug*

    Great to see the Decima engine on another platform where it can stretch it's legs. That more and more exclusives find their way to pc with every gen is a good thing too :)

    Decima Engine on PC is very interesting indeed. As an in-house creation, it's likely shared a lot of knowledge with Sony's studios and internal workflows. Seeing that best practice come to PC is exciting. How will the engine be supported? Sony have history in this though offering the little-known PhryEngine for many years. Recently Dragon Quest Builders on Switch was running on Sony's engine.

    Will Decima get a general-public release ?

    Yeah you called it didn't you in the heated star citizen discussion. Never saw that one coming as i thought the decima engine and DS where Sony's 'property'. But here we are.

    It was widely speculated with good evidence. I called nothing. ;)

    Among what proportion though? That ridiculous second tweet has 11 likes. Versus 17,400 for the PC announcement tweet.

    Also, would be awesome to see some RT enhancements to Decima. Would point a little towards RT possibilities on PS5, with presumably Guerilla adding these features for their own use too.

    Wow, that sad wanker needs to go outside.

    Unless they're as old as their moniker suggests. In which case: bless them, just wait until they find out how many real betrayals life has in store for them.

    There's only good in this, more copies will get sold eventually, and the port is quite 'easy' as the PS4 basically is a pc anyway. This trend is only getting more in the future with games not being restricted to one platform. MS was out first with this and now Sony slowly begun too. Guess developers want to reach as many people as possible anyway, the only winner would be the platform holder.

    The PC port seems like a great opportunity for the first released implementation of Decima's RT. Gorilla should already be experimenting with it for their next game.

    KP & Gorilla talked about how tech sharing is more collaborative than just fling code over to each other. Could well be that however they utilise ray tracing is a genuine joint effort.

    Yes many commented this, and also that the old way of exclusives isn't really the way forward.
    In what way could death stranding benefit from RT, it's mostly a open barren world?

    Some suitably daft but awesome way. It's a Kojima game! ;)

    There's a fair number of internal spaces in what they've shown, wizzy holograms and shiny hardware.

    Hard to take that level of hurt seriously.
    Would make more sense if he followed it up saying "/s it was obvious" .

    I would be more surprised if Sony didn't know it was going to PC from the start.
    If they really want to cause a sh!t storm they should say epic store exclusive.

    No one is hurt by this, only people that think it should be a exclusive to a certain platorm are.
    It is probably sony themselfs that want this game on other platforms then PS though. It wasn't really obvious to us gamers.
    Furthermore i personally wouldn't be hurt if it was a epic or steam or whatever exclusive as it's on the same platform.

    You say no one can be hurt by this, then you outline some of the people that are :lol:

    Yep, talking about tweet saying Sony should ask for money back or something like that.
