The PlayStation PC label arrives
Sony’s PlayStation games on Steam are now published by PlayStation PC LLC instead of from PlayStation Mobile. Resetera users would have noticed it, who would have seen the change yesterday, even if the company appears to have been established at least since the beginning of the year. So let’s see what happened in more detail.
PlayStation PC, the new brand of Sony PC games
Sony has gradually increased its presence on PC over the past year, after Horizon Zero Dawn arrived on Steam in August 2020, followed by Days Gone in February 2021. Furthermore, from what we know, Sony will bring will also bring God of War on PC, followed by the remastering of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection. In short, the idea is to make PlayStation games usable even for those who own a PC. Or at least this results from what was reported by Hermen Hulst, Head of PlayStation Studios. “I want to stress that PlayStation will remain the best place to play our PlayStation Studios titles at launch. But we appreciate PC gamers and will continue to look for the right moments to launch each game. “
Previously Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, admitted that launching PlayStation games on PC could be an easy and profitable opportunity. “There is an opportunity to expose these great games to a wider audience and recognize the economics of game development, which isn’t always straightforward. The cost of making games increases with each cycle, as the caliber of IP has improved. Also, our ease of making it available to non-console owners has increased. So it’s a pretty simple decision for us to make. ” Thus was born PlayStation PC, a label that we are sure will be successful in the near future.
