@Wheat_Thins: the engine is somy owned. It's rare you see sony exclusives at all on PC. Aside from when they're third party and use non sony engines. (22 minutes ago)
No EDRAM or anything architectully odd to work against when getting the engine to run on Windows / Linux. (2 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: PS4 is literally a (in 2016) a very low end gaming PC. Why do you think death stranding will be difficult to port to PC? (2 Hours ago)
Frank Tieri's works, mostly X-Men related: [url] So that's very encouraging. (3 Hours ago)
* Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (3 Hours ago)
There will also be a PC version, just like Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom. Also, Single-Player modes - including Story (with Frank Tieri), 2v2, many multiplayer features, is on Unreal Engine 4. (3 Hours ago)
