It seems pretty likely they will help with PC porting, but that's not necessarily a given. They do a lot of support stuff like with Killzone. Or they might be helping support PS4 with downports. They've also done that, and they've done a great job.  

They're a studio that's mostly behind the scenes, but they have tons of technical talent.  

I would say it isn`t totally alien for Sony to have some behind the scenes studios or teams. Was SSM or ND that had that technical team that supported other Sony Studios right?

Sony has tons of support teams. 

ICE team at Naughty Dog

PlayStation Visual Arts

Malaysia Studios

San Mateo Studios

SN Systems

Audiokinetic

And a few others still.

Some of these are less technical, more art based.

Very true. And I say that is very healthy thing. Let's each team do what their are best at core and lend them help on what is needed to make the final product the best possible with the least impact on time, cost and else.

Then stop saying shit that is so desperate to be responded to! 

The fuck does that even mean?

I don't even know how to better explain it without breaking it down to a point that feels patronizing. 

If you don't want people to respond to you, then don't put your opinions out there. 

If you don't want people quoting you, stop saying things that are either controversial or wrong so that people have to correct you. 

If you don't want to participate in a conversation, don't engage. 

You don't get to come to a forum, say foolish things, then get angry when people call you out on the foolish things you've said. The solution is to either not say the foolish things, or deal with the consequences (In this case, people constantly responding to you). It doesn't even need to be stupid shit, just posting on a forum is reason enough to...be responded to. I really don't know how else to explain it. do you not know how forums work?

Confirmed for PC porting (we knew):

We are also happy with our efforts to provide our IP to PCs, although it is still in its infancy, and we look forward to working with Nixxes to help with that
