Don't get sucked in by the marketing...

This is just Houdini engine inside c4d

Houdini engine is already in maya and unity and the source code will be released on GitHub so any developer can 'partner' with it

Yep, just like OpenSubDiv... presuming someone, be it 3D app developers or whomever, put the time and resources into doing so. "Can" != "Will", obviously.

As for the Maxon - SideFx partnership, if it means the SideFx guys are working directly with Maxon implementing the integration into C4D, the partnership's value could be quite significant. If it just means SideFx handed code over to Maxon, then not so much. Too early to judge.
