After the new rumors that Horizon coming to pc and if Sony go that road with their exclusives... believe me they will never be top dog again

If that happen i think alot of gamers will build Strong pcs and move away from consoles

DarXyde562d ago

You make it sound like PlayStation exclusives would show up on PC, day and date. This is YEARS after the fact. Anyone who really wanted Horizon: Zero Dawn, if we're being candid, already bought it unless they did not have a PS4.

A PC release gives great games a second life. Let's face it: the cost of game development in terms of time and budget has exploded. PS2 and PSOne had a ton of exclusives because games were not too costly to produce. By the time we got PS3, commercial failure of some games meant the closure of studios. Developers have mitigated that risk by making multiplatform titles.That would be 2 generations ago. Imagine the cost going into gen 9. It stands to reason then that a first-party developer (i.e., a developer that has always made exclusives for one console/family of consoles) Would also benefit from expanding to the PC platform. Honestly, I think this is the best possible move for Sony on this matter. If they released their games on Switch or Xbox, you would have a point. But on PC, years after the fact? I don't see the risk.

Well, i see your point and maybe i overthink this rumor but if Sony start doing what Microsoft is doing with their games and release them on PC/ps5 at the same time ... speaking for my self i will find very little reason to buy ps5 when i can just upgrade my pc more and play everything

We will see what happen but i also don't like Sony keeping us in the dark about what they want to do with their exclusives if it will come to pc or not and the future of Ps5
I atleast respect Microsoft for making it clear about what they want (will never buy their consoles though)

Kurt Russell562d ago

I can't be the only technologically inept gamer in the world. The barrier to entry on PC gaming is too confusing for myself. I like to just turn a system on, know a game is already optimised for my system and play. I have no understanding of graphic card settings, types of RAM or anything like that.

Benficaman562d ago

I think the rumour was the release in the psnow.. not a PC version.

fr0sty562d ago

next stop, best selling (console) hardware of all time!

gravedigger562d ago

Horizon ZD is 3 years old though

chobit_A5HL3Y562d ago

sony will NEVER release their exclusives on pc. ever. unlike ms, they have no stock in another platform(ie, windows), so it makes no sense for them to sabotage their own console by going down that route. you can say all you want about people just getting a super powerful pc to play all games, but consoles still remain as an easily accessible medium for people to just pick up and play. the average person will associate console gaming with sitting down and playing game on your big-screen tv, while pc gaming is looked at as playing at a desk. of course you can have a set-up however you want, but generally speaking, most people see consoles as a easier, more convenient option.

Congrats Sony and PS4, well deserved, and 2020 looks a fantastic last year for PS4 before PS5 drops.

FallenAngel1984563d ago

PS5 will most likely claim that achievement in the 2020s

darthv72563d ago

PS6 should be out in 2026, maybe 27 so who knows.

MajorLazer563d ago

PS5 will have far more of the decade than the PS6 so I don't see how, barring something extraordinary, the PS6 will outsell it.

JEECE563d ago

If Sony doesn't buy into the "ending generations" nonsense by then.

RosweeSon562d ago

We haven’t even finished PS4 yet 😑😅😂

Xbox Series X will be the king for the next decade if the rumors of the lackluster launch lineup for PS5 is true. According to insider Logvinov who leaked that Death Stranding was coming to PC months before it was announced he claims the PS5 will not have a single major exclusive at launch offering buyers enhanced versions of popular PS4 exclusives instead. The Xbox meanwhile will get anywhere between 12 to 16 exclusives right on day one although not all of them will be major releases

Jin_Sakai563d ago

“The Xbox meanwhile will get anywhere between 12 to 16 exclusives”

Let’s not jump to conclusions until both consoles and their games lineup are fully revealed.

GaboonViper563d ago

I think he is being sarcastic, all at least I hope he is, XSeX won't even have 12 to 16 exclusives over its lifetime let alone launch LMFAO.

🤣🤣🤣

Elda563d ago

Please provide actual 100% proof of your claim.

CaptainHenry916563d ago (Edited 563d ago )

Not Xbox series only exclusives. Keep your Xbox one to play Halo Infinite

CBaoth563d ago

Bahahhaha....oh wait....you were serious? The PS4 had a lackluster launch lineup too. How'd that turn out? 12-16 exclusives on day 1? You've supported MS all these years. When have they EVER had that many games? This "Insider" is trolling you hard

kneon562d ago

Has the XB1 had 16 exclusives yet?

nucky64563d ago

what bizarro world are you living in?

The Wood563d ago (Edited 563d ago )

wow......Delusion got carried from last decade right into this one.

There also seems to be a lot of unwarranted disagrees going around like people are somehow irked by actual numbers instead of vague spinny metrics. Sony have been consistent and have had a clear objective spanning gens. Why do some frame it like its only MS who can or will improve or that sony is in some kinda messy situation. I don't get it .......

Congrats to the PS family. They've done an amazing job

jbull563d ago

2/10 for troll attempt, you need to be more subtle. 12 to 16 day one exclusives Microsoft? It would take then an entire generation to do that never mind day one.

GaboonViper563d ago (Edited 563d ago )

🤣🤣🤣

Thundercat77563d ago

Keep living in your fantasy world.

GaboonViper563d ago

I think I can safely say he is being sarcastic.

He's making a reference to some rumors spread by a Russian YouTuber.

You must be new to gaming. Beginning of every gen Xbox people claims big but each time PS rises at the top. When PS starts droping their exclusives for the PS5. There is no turning back.. day one 12 to 16 exclusives lmao! BUT wasn't there a rumor saying that there wont be xbox series X exclusives for 2 years.

2pacalypsenow563d ago (Edited 563d ago )

You do know that Xbox has 0 exclusives right? All their games will release on PC.

I hope this was sarcasm

Muzikguy563d ago

Wtf are you smoking? You can't possibly believe that garbage or even have missed all the stories about MS not having XSeX exclusives for 2 years at least

Rude-ro563d ago

It was known to come to pc... there was no leak. It was said from the offset

BrettAwesome563d ago

You lost, dude. Xbox has lost every single generation. Every. Single. One

HannibalLecter563d ago

Ahahahaha guess you didn't get the Booty memo about xbox series x for the next year or two.

ForwardDude563d ago

Microsoft already said that the Xbox (aka Series X) won't have exclusive for the first 2 years.

sushimama563d ago (Edited 563d ago )

BAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA omg sorry, but that's hilarious. Lets see what happens shall we?

None leaked Death Stranding PC version, Kojima Productions announced that the game would release on PC so I think you should get your facts straight...

neutralgamer1992562d ago

Battle

😂 How is that inside information when Sony and Kojima themselves announced DS was coming out on Pc too?

And I thought ms weren't doing any Xbox series x exclusives for 2 years? Do you know how hard it is to do 12-16 exclusives

Benficaman562d ago

12-16 exclusives for Xbox??? Joke of the day. Maybe in the entire generation, maybe....

This is bounty trolling or pure 'xbotism' or both. I'm inclined that such comment was generated by a Microsoft Algorithm because in order to arrive over such conclusion you need proof. Saying that such launch will be a lackluster is indeed premature.

This post is simply an attempt to look for attention or a classical old flame bait. No one in their sane mind troll like this, not even a 12 old xbox toxic internet player. Either way this puff piece talking doesn't stop to be fascinating for mockery, subject for a meme and entertainment.

Battlestar23562d ago (Edited 562d ago )

Microsoft won't have 1st party exclusives for at least 2 years but they have thrown the money hat around and bought some 3rd party exclusivity for Series X. Word has it that some of them are Resident Evil 8, Rocksteady's Superman game and a new IP from Square Enix which was supposed to be a PS5 exclusive but is now a Series X exclusive as in not a timed exclusive.

This is a ps4 thread. Go troll elsewhere with that bait.

rainslacker562d ago

No no no. It works like this. MS releases 3 games across 5 platforms and services, hence, 15 exclusives total.

MS domination incoming!!!

yellowgerbil562d ago

Think you should pitch that to CBS, sounds like a top notch Twilight Zone story

rainslacker562d ago

Death stranding was said to be coming to PC the day it was revealed. At that time, its console releases were unknown.
