Realy? Thats cool, a first ever Guerrilla Games game on pc. But when are we ever gonna get other PS exclusives like Pursuit Force, Resistance, Killzone, God of War, Patapon, Dead Head Fred, GTA Stories, Starhawk, Last of Us, Uncharted, etc... why and how Horizon Zero Dawn i do wonder... makes me wonder... not that i ever wanted it on here but i dont mind it, i just want to know why, why this game, why at all and why now. HZD is a far newer game than those other titles i mentioned and yet were getting it instead, i dont understand... if anything can be garnered from the article, its that it will probably be a EGS exclusive and only on pc for the sole reason of EPIC MONEY.

Because it uses the same engine as Death Stranding, which is coming to PC. So, as they're porting the engine to PC, they use that work to also bring HZD.

Engine is irrelevant.

No, it isn't at all. Once you've ported the engine the work is done. All system specific code resides in the engine.

Pretty sure plenty of exclusives use pc game engines and are still not on pc so its irrelevant.

Which PS4 exclusives use PC engines? Both Naughty Dog and Santa Monica also use custom engines. Guerrilla Games also have always used custom engines for their games (and they're probably only porting the last version of Decima, since that's what Kojima needed). That's really not surprising: an engine designed from the ground for a specific hardware is going to have better performance. This also makes porting harder (it's why it's taking porting Decima to PC so much time: it uses some PS4 exclusive features that are hard to port).

As expected, because Death Stranding uses the same engine and is also coming to pc. Very cool. Also, not another stupid epic exclusive. Yay user choice.

"The report said it’ll be on “both Steam and the Epic Games Store,” though it “may not be finalized yet.”"

Who knows still, but odds are good it'll be for both.

That might mean that it will be a timed exclusive on Epic, though. But I personally don't care anyway, as long as it's coming to any PC store.

I wonder if Sony is also planning to turn the Playstation brand into a "platform" just like Microsoft is doing with Xbox. Either being a publisher is more profitable than selling consoles or they're seeing the end of consoles as they currently are comming within this decade.

Possible, but unlikely. Sonys games division is currently doing very well (better then any division in the company) and they likely don't want to mess too much with a winning formula. Sony is very good publisher though, and they're probably somewhat open to letting their developers make ports and low-budget projects for platforms that they don't see as direct competitors to their console (ie. Steam/PC in this case).

I did hear that the other hardware divisions from Sony aren't doing as well as they used to, but I imagine they probably have a few contingency plans after the PS Vita laguished for years and went down silently, or how they managed to somehow fail at launching a mini console.
On an unrelater note, I miss the days when they made their good walkman phones. I had a w508, not only it had great audio, the battery lasted for at least 3 or 4 days without a charge.

Nah console trend is here to stay, they still make a shit ton of money. Even if Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo ever give up, others will take their place.

I highly doubt Nintendo will ever give up, those guys can squeeze coins from rocks.

I guess Sony pulled this move just to generate more profit. Life of PS4 is coming to it's end, PS5 will be released somewhere in the end of 2020. No one will bother buying PS4 just to play H:ZD after 3 years, especially considering the fact that's it's now available on PS Now. (Last Of Us 2 - may will still be a system seller, but Horizon certainly not).
Another thing to remember is that Guerilla Games are working on a sequel. I suppose that H:ZD 2 will be an early PS5 exclusive, so it might help with bringing more players, making some of the PC players buy PS5.
Another thing is that Kojima probably really wanted to port DS to PC (bringing players together and all that shit), so Guerilla Games probably have been working on their Engine to make it compatible with PC, so after that Sony decided why not use this chance to also sell Horizon, make more money.

To be honest tho, personally I won't buy PS5 if they are going to release every single of their games also on PC (but highly unlikely, i still think that H:ZD will be an exception and probably demonstration of Decima Engine's capabilities, if they are ever going to make it commercial). The only game that made me buy PS4 was Bloodborne, so unless they release Bloodborne 2 exclusively on PS5, I will probably hold-off with buying PS5.

Weird it's coming to steam since Quantum Dream games that were Sony published/funded are Epic exclusive.
I mean even GODFALL is announced only for Epic games store?

I question if it will really come to Steam.

Quantik dream games are no longer with Sony and the license with the sony expired...also their games are coming to steAm after 1 year EGS (avoid that store) exclusivity. Horizon Zero dawn was made by Guerrilla games a direct first party sony studio. Not to mention all the sources say it's coming to steam.

we made enough money off exclusive so now pc peasants can enjoy this by paying $40-60 3 years later with outdated graphics.
remember, we care about gamers! <3333 support the devs!
