Another corporate quick buck scheme of trotting out old console product that no longer sells and repackaging it as a half assed PC port. I won't even consider it unless it has the following PC game essentials:
* fullly adjustable POV, brightness, contrast, bloom etc.
* full keyboard and mouse support with re-binding of any key/button
* movement, camera, mouse and keyboard control that is fluid, not the usual slow as molasses PC port garbage
* full player controlled game save and game load facility
What do you mean fully adjustable POV? Did you mean FOV? I doubt they'll let that be adjusted, as the game often blends its cinematics into the gameplay without camera cuts.
I really hope they add in a good KB/Mouse setup. This is a game that rewards skill shots. I played through it on PS4 but unlike Spider-man, the controller DID get in the way here.
The save/load thing will honestly be at the bottom of their list, and the most likely thing to not happen out of the things you want.
About halfway into the game, a device will become available that lets you....ehh, best not to spoil it. Point is, using the device has a long, SUPER cool animation that's there to cover up load times. Pretty quickly, I'd decided I was only going to use it when absolutely required to move the story forward. I doubt they'll speed it up or let you skip it on a SSD, as the animation is....complex. Like, "how long did they spend doing JUST this?!?", and it moves the characters around to be in place for when it's finished.
The art in this game is honestly incredible, don't be concerned that it's a couple years old. Yes, it'd be *NICE* if Sony moved faster on this port. I'm betting the sales numbers from their PC ports will determine how much priority they put into getting their sequels on PC in a timely manner. I doubt you'll see same-day releases, but maybe it'll only be a year or so gap, and single-player games don't have the limited shelf life that multiplayer ones do.
Now we just need Spider-Man and the FULL Uncharted series (not just 4....although if you were only going to get one of them, 4 -is- the best).
