Sony brings more PlayStation games to computers


Sony plans to bring more PlayStation games to the PC, and Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment in America, told British magazine GQ magazine that the first game to come this spring is Days Gone.

Game developer Bend Studio confirmed the news via a Twitter platform, adding: "Stay tuned for more details.

Sony has in the past been reluctant to deal with PC games, although it softened its stance last year when it announced that Guerilla Games' Horizon Zero is coming to pc, which was launched last August.

Asked why the company was changing its position, Ryan explained that there are some factors involved, saying: We now find ourselves in early 2021 with our development studios and the games they make better than before.

He added: "Our studios have made some great games since the last half of PS4 in particular, and there is an opportunity to showcase these games to a wider audience and learn about the economics of game development, which is not always clear, the cost of making games increases with each session, and the level of the intellectual property improves.

Ryan noted that it is also easier to make PS games available to people who don't own gaming platforms, and also revealed that there are new PSVR glasses on the way.

It remains unclear what other PlayStation games may be transferred to the PC.

PlayStation's exclusive gaming library is exceptionally good, so we'd like to see more Sony games reach your Pc in the future.

There are some obvious highlights such as Last of Us 2, which has been dubbed the Best Game of 2020, along with God of War, which is likely to arrive in the near future after the launch of Days Gone.

Sony has lagged behind for years on the launch of games for personal computers, and now it seems easier to transfer games to those devices than ever before.

However, the essence of the decision lies in money, and Ryan highlights that the cost of making games is high, and as the costs increase, more copies must be sold, but for exclusive games, this can be difficult because the range of players is smaller than multi-platform versions.

By selling its games to PC players, Sony hopes to make more money from the games it has made.
