Sony appears to have created a new “PlayStation PC” label for its ports, replacing the old PlayStation Mobile label.
It doesn’t change much at the moment, it’s just a publisher name change on Steam (thanks, VGC). It looks like Sony hasn’t decided to switch to every game yet – I’ve checked God of War and it still shows PlayStation Mobile as the publisher – but I hope that’s an indication of a stronger commitment to PC. as a platform.
We’ve seen a steady increase in PlayStation exclusive games heading to Steam and Epic. Sony has expressed a desire to release more PC games in 2020 after the ports of Death Stranding and Horizon Zero Dawn. Days Gone has arrived this year as well, and going forward we’ll see Uncharted 4, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, and, surprisingly, God of War. Sony also picked up Nixxes Software a few months ago, a studio that has helped bring a handful of Crystal Dynamics games to PC.
According to NPD Group’s PlayerPulse, only 1/3 of PC gamers in the US own a PS4, and only 8% own a PS5. This leaves a huge PC audience that can be reached, and this is also why releasing ports on PC is not likely to impact the sales of content on consoles. A sort of win-win deal. https://t.co/YLaw0BsvC828 October 2021
Sony Interactive Entertainment president Jim Ryan told GQ earlier this year that âa whole listâ of PlayStation games are expected to eventually arrive here, though he has been silent on which ones would benefit from the port’s treatment. Personally, I think The Last of Us would be a fantastic choice, although half of the team here is practically mouth-watering for Bloodborne on PC at this point.
