I want all of them on PC. Every. Single. One.

But that's probably never going to happen. So if I had to choose then top of my list would be Bloodborne followed closely by Persona 5. Dreams would be a great fit on PC with the incredible communities of content creators in PC land.

whatever games they bring i'm sure there will be gamers for it. i thought they would be bring more Decima games but who knows after Days Gone.

Piggeroni39d ago

This will just trigger the console fanboys. However i don't see a problem since if we want to play on PC and get better frame rates the option is there, they can still play on their console just like always.

I think it is tough call what they bring over. I think there will still be exclusives specific for Playstation hardware. But even before Jim, Layden already mentioned the possibility of some Playstation games being ported to PC, to lean into their install base. Dreams would certainly be a candidate.

But many forget, they don't want just hardware and software sales. They want accessory sales, mtx sales, and per

But many forget, they don't want just hardware and software sales. They want accessory sales, mtx sales, and percentage cuts. So they still will value varying exclusive software, especially marquee software, to attract users to Playstation and adopt into their ecosystem. I would not put it past them to wait PC users out, because while the additional software sales are a benefit, they really want to tempt PC users into the ecosystem. Get more plus subs too.

Literally 80%+ attach rate to plus with PS5 owners

As long as it has been rumored, I'm surprised Bloodborne hasn't showed up before Days Gone

HAD TO REPOST. ONLY POSTED PART OF MY REPLY

Dreams would benefit the most in my opinion especially with cross play features. Bloodborne is most wanted but I think Sony may keep it exclusive. TLOU1-2 good possibility

As a playstation fan I want these games on pc so sony can generate more revenue which in return will help grow the studios and may even acquire more talent. So 12-18 months after releasing on ps they can release on pc and again charge full price

but the reason I don't think it will happen with a lot of PlayStation 5 games is because Sony wants to sell PlayStation 5S right now they're doing some of PlayStation 4 games because it's last generation anybody who wanted to play them on consoles probably already did

Especially with PlayStation 5S being not available it is in their benefit to just simply keep building the library so when more consumers have the system they will buy these games so they don't see a lot of benefits in releasing them on PC. Which I agree with

"Dreams would benefit the most in my opinion especially with cross play features."

particularly i think it needs to find a dedicated community on pc. which may be complicated and still is on pc. even with existing tools. just in the past few months pc game engines have been making big investments simplifying their tools even further for indies. to also keep up with hardware advancements. but anyways If it's among the games landing on pc then it is what it is. and who says no to playing more games.

neutralgamer199239d ago

Yes but I think Sony strategy is simple they have used some of these IP's during PlayStation 4 and now these games being on PC doesn't really hurt PlayStation 4

on PlayStation 5 they not only want to sell the hardware they also want to sell subscription services so it benefits them greatly to have actual exclusive content

I can't wait to see TLOU2 with mods, make Joel with Nails face and smack that face with a golf club.

The_Sage39d ago

Just buy a Playstation. Problem solved.

TheRealTedCruz39d ago

Well when Sony already announced they're looking at PC as a legitimate platform for their games going forward, there's really no reason you HAVE to, eh?
I don't mind waiting a year or two to play it on my preferred platform. Especially if they are proper ports, thus future proofing the games when better and better tech comes out over the years. Potentially mod support.

zackeroniii39d ago

when you get 1 or 2 playstation exclusives for PC every few years and gamble with waiting to see if they will even be coming to PC off of wishful thinking, I will be enjoying every single top rated PS exclusive on my Playstation. you people hate on consoles AND still want the games that come out on them on PC?? how does that work??

TheRealTedCruz39d ago

@zack

Am I wrong that Sony, themselves, just announced that many more PS4 exclusives will be coming to PC going forward?
I think you're confusing "wishful thinking" with "I literally just went by the public word of Sony execs".
And I owned a PS4 Pro. I sold it when I confirmed I was in for a PS5. So I'm not a "console hater". I play on PC, but I also get the consoles to either play with friends, or grab a game I may not want to wait for. Though, at the end of the day, if said game comes to PC, I will eventually grab it on there as well.

Maybe if you can move past your own personal bias, you'd be able to wrap your head around the idea that you can appreciate multiple platforms, and their games, while still holding a preference for one.
That starts by not lumping entire groups together because you choose to let the random jackass online get under your thin skin.

Just because you may like a piece of software doesn't mean you HAVE to care much less have any desire for the hardware it's running on. There's nothing special about the hardware in relation to the software. It's far more preferable to take an interest in a piece of software without all the corporate proprietary cons associated with it i.e, increased pricing for no reason, limited performance and visual control, paywalls to access my own internet for content I already paid for, et cetera.

I can't speak for everyone, but the only reason I hate on consoles lately is because their fanboys are basically paypigs for suits, and their reactions are quite humorous when reminding them of that.

SierraGuy39d ago

Good job ted how was mexico?

TheRealTedCruz39d ago (Edited 39d ago )

@Sierra

I spent a few hours making sure my lovely daughters were taken care of, and then hopped right back over to Mexico to aid my constituents, who I love so much. Much like America, and thinly veiled classism.
Which was totally the plan all along, and not a desperate reaction to the backlash I was receiving prior.

Please .... please vote for me in the primaries. I'm pulling 2%, and the wife says if I don't at least get that to 10%, I get the plunger again. I .... I just can't do the plunger again.

PC will get those games after they have been worn out. PC people will wait.

There always hungry for games because they don't have any

rpvenom39d ago

I think this model of launching as ps exclusive first.. few years later when no one is buying the game anymore on ps.. release it on pc to build sales again on a title that otherwise is not selling much anymore.. most gamers aren't willing to wait.. will play on ps if it's a highly anticipated title and so it still has enough to entice someone to buy ps, while allowing the developers to maximize sales while remaining exclusive for a time and still not go to xbox.

anast38d ago (Edited 38d ago )

@rpvenom, I would say most PC gamers wait or there wouldn't be such a cry to release these games on PC.

RaidenBlack39d ago

Killzone. (Shadowfall best bet. Preferably? 2 & 3)
Never forget the FPS when thinking of PC.

Father__Merrin39d ago

Il be honest I don't want any of them on Pc. But some of them could make sense like Dreams or multilayer focused games using cross play etc

It's a different landscape so everyone might need to get used to it now

Sieg39d ago

Why don't you want the games that you like accessible to other players? They're just games and Sony just want our money as a business.

RazzerRedux39d ago

"There always hungry for games because they don't have any"

Nah, that's just what you tell yourself. PC gamers have more games than consoles. The vast majority of all new games are on PC and that has been the case this entire past generation. But since PC gaming isn't tied to generations like consoles are, "backward compatibility" is barely even a thing. That makes the library of older games available gigantic.

How about all those PS1 and PS2 games that don't work on PS3, PS4, or PS5? They work fine on PC. I have PS1 and PS2 discs that I can pop into my PC and play through emulation. Completely legal.

PC also have games that are not available on consoles. Last year's runner up in the number of GOTY awards? Nope. It wasn't Ghost of Tsushima. It was Hades. Not available on consoles (yet). Just one example but there are plenty more. The entire strategy and simulation game genres are practically PC exclusive.

PC gaming is massive. Sony knows this even if you pretend otherwise. And that is why PC gamers are getting more and more PlayStation games.
