Sony made a surprising announcement lately talking about how they want to possibly bring more of their first-party titles to the PC market as they recently did with Death Stranding and Horizon Zero Dawn. This comes from a recent corporate report by the company that stated that they are fully aware that a large chunk of the gaming sector is based entirely on the PC market and isn’t likely to budge from there in order to buy a new console. Therefore they can tap into the entire PC market by providing some of their games on Steam or other digital distribution platforms and thus increase their profits by not solely focusing on their console market.
This move mirrors that of Microsoft who have been a lot more focused on providing an equal balance between console and PC gaming, especially with their Xbox Game Pass. It’s a move that I naturally anticipated the big companies would eventually catch on to as I am exactly the type of person described in the report as I mainly play on PC and have no wish to get any of the new consoles. Due to this I am missing out on a large chunk of exclusive games and so Sony aren’t getting any money from me. This move will hopefully mean a lot more of their interesting titles will be getting ported to PC and personally I hope this will show that the next in line will be Persona 5 as I’ve been wanting to try out that game for a long time but the PS4 exclusivity problem has been the one thing holding me back.
What do you all think about this? Do you feel that Sony expanding more into the PC market is a good idea or do you think they should focus on just sticking to their Playstation line? Let me know in the comment section below! That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
