Might just be a conicdence (after the TR exclusive jargon) but I like how Sony point out that when they say exclusive, they mean exclusive.

Oh and it looks very interesting.

"Every creature, large or small, predator or play, will be playable in WiLD.
How that works and what it means for gameplay is as yet unclear, however."

Play creatures will be playable?

I wonder if the "Every creature, large or small, predator or prey, will be playable in WiLD" means that there will be Druid~ish like transformation abilities? Perhaps after defeating a certain number of the same animal, or performing some sort of ritual, you'll be able to transform into it? From the trailer you could see a person turn from wolf into man. Be cool to see how they handle transformations into flying creatures, not to mention sea ones.

As to online functions, I'm guessing it might center around taking down high end game, like mammoths, powerful mythical beasts, or something.

Capitalism is resulting in everywhere you look, neo-liberalism to be precise. The main question is what can we do about it? To the alternative road to socialism?

PC gets more exclusives than all consoles combined. So by your logic you must just hate gaming.

Because of the cost developers are put through in order to release on a console. You gotta pay a hefty amount to the console creators, and a few other companies before it's considered something you can sell. Not to mention hardware costs...

With PC, developers have much more freedom with releases. They don't have to get any approval from anyone before releasing their game (Unless of course, they're selling it and it contains copyrighted work. Ya know, general legal shit). For a game to be released on Steam, however, I would assume it's a similar process to the way consoles work, except some games don't require a rating, and the lack of hardware costs (AKA, still easier to develop for).

It's not that PC games are purposely excluding themselves from consoles to create a sense of capitalism, it's that the consoles themselves are excluding PC games from being available on their hardware due to the huge cost required before the games even ship. If console-based gaming became the only form of gaming available, It would kill many small companies. Hell, even Minecraft wouldn't be here if it weren't for PC gaming.

You do know that Steam takes a cut of share just like Sony,Microsoft,Nintendo,Apple, and Google do when you release something on their platform.

Steam's green light system......
Sure they could release their game on PC and still not be on Steam but good luck for it to succeed that way. Oh and I sure you hope you know just because they're developing on the PC it doesn't mean that the development costs are free. lol

Well yeah duh you need a PS4/WiiU/Xbone dev kit to develop a game for a console. Just like how you'd need a PC to develop games for the PC. You're acting as if there's no development costs for making games on the PC and that it's completely free lol

But you're right about Minecraft not being here, because until recently on consoles I don't you could have sold beta's or early access games. That along with youtubers playing the game is what pushed Minecraft to become so popular. But here's a fun fact for you though Console versions of Minecraft outsold the PC version of Minecraft. =p

Of course, who wouldn't? My assumption is that it's a less hassle-filled experience on Steam, though. Steam doesn't require an ESRB rating for one example, which I'd imagine costs a bit of money to get

Minecraft isn't on Steam, and never was. That game is such a great example of indie developers.

I'm sure there are plenty of tools available on the internet for free that would allow you to create any kind of game you'd like. It might not be a good game, but that's not my point.

A good example of an incredibly inexpensive set of software would be Source SDK, which you are able to use freely as long as you own a Source Engine-based game (Portal is literally 10 bucks). Low development costs can be a good factor in PC development, not just free.

Like I said, free may be a tough tool to work with in PC development, but there are plenty of inexpensive and very handy tools available on the internet. That cheapness factor is the reason we see as many indie titles on PC that we don't see on consoles.
