Sony has officially launched the PlayStation Studios Steam page, with 41 total items so far (games & DLC).
We all know Sony strategy is to put some old Playstation games that already served their exclusivity purpose and are not selling anymore but let me pretend that Sony is going to put all their Playstation exclusive ganes day one on PC and pretend that Sony is going to sabotage their own console. Makes no logic but I don't care... It has begun friends!!!! All Playstation exclusives games are going to release on PC day 1!!! /s
@Paleblood Lets pretend that Nintendo is not the only company to have *true* exclusives as some people used to call Playstation first party games when compared to Xbox.
Let's not pretend your not a narcissist......lol seriously
Playstation has so many more TRUE exclusives compared to xbox there, happy?
He's right. Nintendo have been the only one to hold their ground, have a pair, and not budge. Its just too bad their games don't have any life or spirit anymore. Nintendos games suck and they're always a generation late getting third-party games.
Dude, chill out. It’s nothing to get yourself upset about.
Will be interesting to see if this is where they release PS4 games only or PS5 games too. IF the PS5 games are there too, I will divert my PS5 savings towards the rtx3080. My R5 5600X pc is in need of a new GPU anyway.
And actually, in a bit of an odd way, this is one way to defeat scalpers. Granted, the hardware components are still costly, but yeah
@Paleblood Why would you care if Sony release their games day 1 on PC? Not sure why you’re so upset over this. You can still play them on PS5 and the game being on PC doesn’t somehow reduce your experience or the quality of the game.
Your right he shouldn't care. However to suggest that it would happen doesn't make much sense from a business standpoint. Anyone suggesting it will happen is likely doing so because they have a favourite platform and enjoys validating their purchase in a way they perceive to be the expense of others. Otherwise known as being a d*ck.
Of course it makes business sense. I’m still going to buy a PS6 if their games are on PC - as will the vast majority of current PS owners. Console has some benefits over PC in terms of being more social, more comfortable, easier to access, less configuration etc. also certain games are better played on a console vs PC (and vice versa) So Sony would still get the vast majority of PS customers today buying their future consoles but would now also reap the rewards from the large user base on Steam / PC. It’ll be a net gain for sure - the customers/revenue gained by putting their games on PC will vastly outnumber the customers/revenue lost on the console side. Sony are a corporation - they want your money - whether that money comes via PS or PC - they likely don’t care.
They care because they feel that they lose "bragging rights" and the warped sense of superiority they think they have over other gamers. That's literally the only reason I can think of as to why some people would care about Sony releasing their 1st party games on the PC.
Orchard "I’m still going to buy a PS6 if their games are on PC" I doubt this. However i don't really care. If Sony say exclusives are more important than ever then putting them day one on PC flies in the face of that statement. You want a unique selling point to drive people into you ecosystem. Sony's unique selling point is exclusive content with high production values. Microsoft for the time being is deriving it though pure value via rock bottom pricing. "Sony are a corporation - they want your money - whether that money comes via PS or PC - they likely don’t care." Absolutely, my argument is they will make more through the console than they will from PC. It does not make sense to put the software on PC to the determinant of the console ecosystem.
@Pricey I really doubt Sony see PC as a threat to PS, while there is some crossover, a lot of console gamers won’t even go near PC gaming, it’s not as affordable, accessible and easy to use for example. By exclusives being important (which they are) they could just be referring to the console space. It looks increasingly likely we will be seeing Sony games on PS and PC going forward - and I doubt it’ll have much, if any negative impact on PS consoles.
It matters on N4G because a lot of people like to think Xbox has no exclusives because they are also available on PC. And they would be right. The word "exclusive" means exactly that. Re-defining it to mean "exclusive but only kinda as it's not available on two platforms" is a stretch. You can't blame either MS or Sony for branching out. We ALL know that cloud computing and streaming to any device is the end game anyway so lets get the party started. The real losers in all of this is Apple. Because they won't let any of this into their ecosystem. No wonder there are rumours over the last few days that they are set to rival Nintendo with a Switch-like product. It doesn't matter though, they are too late into this game. Eventually.. and it probably won't be next gen, but the gen after that... there will just be one platform where you play everything. The real question is what will that platform be? The only two answers are Steam or GamePass. My guess is, MS, Sony and Steam will come together and consolidate into one system within 8 years. People will obviously disagree with me because its N4G and they'll think I'm having a go at Sony for some weird reason, but ultimately, the more that these companies can come together, the better for all consumers. If we can just buy one box and play everything, that's the ultimate end goal and dream. I even see Nintendo, Amazon and Google becoming more open in future. And Apple will stay stubborn and offer their own ecosystem which will fail. Anyway, the point of my long post; this is the first steps in unifying our gaming experiences. This in no way diminishes Playstation as a brand. It strengthens it, because it shows Sony are open to being a part of the inevitable future and not being a crappy closed ecosystem like Apple would throw at us.
I care because I like consoles and consoles will die slowly if they start releasing day 1 exclusives . It depends how many exclusives were day 1 on how fast the death would be but either way it will hurt the console business no matter what. Xbox consoles are already dying and I don’t want PS consoles to die with them. Xbox doesn’t care about the console business it’s obvious they really only care about the sub business. They don’t make enough money from software selling them individually so they are going the sub route and don’t make money from consoles (maybe accessories) but they’re hoping to ditch all of that to use their servers to sell subs which they own already and have paid a lot for already and won’t need consoles sooner than later . I don’t think Sony is dumb enough to release PS5 games day 1 as they know it will hurt their console business and that’s where they make the most money and are the market leader . They will stay that way if they keep exclusives there for the majority of time and most permanently . There is money to made on PC but it will start to cannibalize their console business if they go too far and I’m sure they don’t want that and neither do a lot of us console gamers . If it had no affect on consoles I wouldn’t care but obviously it only hurts the console side over time . They can release older IP and not eat into their console business but any more than that will do more harm to PS consoles than help .
They will ..
I can't wait to play Spiderman.
The day has come. I'm hoping they do release all their exclusives on PC!!!😊🙌 I can't wait to play Bloodborne in 4k 120fps. My 3080 is ready
Well paleblood that’s what you get for writing the /S too small 😂 a lot of disagree v smash 🤣
still works though right? After all it was exclusive to SONY and no other console so it will work,
Wut are you babbling about
You do care, you are here typing out your frustration.
"There are about 41 games and DLCs, with some hidden." Wonder what is "hidden". Right now there are only 24 viewable items. 3 games and the rest are DLC.
Chances are, it's a game or two and a bunch of DLCs. I doubt Sony has 10+ games coming to Steam that's there already.
Either way I'll be patient and wait for them since it's impossible to get a ps5 without paying a scalper lol
Lol what that got to do with ps5, only ps4 games going on pc for awhile but you keep waiting though
Everyone i know who wanted a ps5 has one. You need to download a shopping app (i used walmart), and have payment info filled out. Then wait for a drop.
Follow twitter stock update and you will get one before you whine about it. I got my GPU, Ps5, XSX all from there.
I've tried since November too. I have used a shopping app and have still struck out. I kind of gave up for the time being as it was getting old. I've had one in my cart probably 15 times and could never check out. I'm just going to stop wasting my time and wait for them to be available. Also games to come out.
Could be some good ones too. This is good news for gaming even if people may feel jaded.
I agree. I know this isn't popular among PS fans, but it is a good thing. I celebrated Xbox games coming to PC and I'll do the same with PS games.
I dont get the issue personally 🤷♂️ Sony said some pc releases, while still supporting their consoles with exclusives didn't they🤔 they covering both bases from what I can see. Even if they did go day and date, it personally wouldn't effect me as I don't game on pc. They have supported pc in the past while also providing plenty that was exclusive to the playstation, panic over nothing, plus more money in means even more invested into playstation...win win.
@IRetrouk "Sony said some pc releases" Yeah....they absolutely did. Sony has a strategy when it comes to their games on PC. I don't believe that strategy includes day one releases on PC. With a delayed release on PC, Sony is able to create hype for their games a second time. We've got the impending release of Days Gone on PC and so Days Gone is all in the news. How much attention would Days Gone be receiving at this point without this delayed release on PC? None. I'd prefer day one releases on PC myself, but I absolutely understand why Sony isn't going to do that.
41 games!... is a lot of games.
It's mostly dlc..
A bit odd. Currently there is 21 DLC for HELLDIVERS and Predator. When taking into consideration the games themselves that number goes to 25. That will rise again to 27 after they add GUNS UP! and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture to the list. So I wonder what exactly are those 14 other itens. Might just be a oversight though.
Could be, or might just be another small game. Maybe more planned dlc too
The only game that could still get DLC is Predator that have at least 4 more planned. But that is still far short of the 14 empy entries. For small games I don't know if there even is one that would make sense to port for the PC. And Sony don't look interested in that, porting only AAA so far. I think it was just a oversight. Maybe they listed things twice or something like that.
4 games actually the rest is DLC. Of those 4 games 1 is coming soon (Days Gone)
If they've gone through the trouble of opening a steam page then they intend to bring even more games to PC in future. Just a matter of which games and how long the games will be exclusive on Playstation for.
Well they've already said they will nothing has really changed
Never a better time to be a PC gamer.
I think the 90s was a better time to be a PC gamer myself. Then again the 90s was the most exciting time for gaming in general. BTW I'm being facetious, I do know what you mean. I did give you an upvote
They should release gran turismo and wipeout on steam. They would go down well and would also both suit vr
Let's not get ahead of ourselves. Some games just need to stay on Playstation. Doesn't make sense for heavy hitters on day 1 to end up on PC. Then again times do change.
WipEout Omega Collection on PS4 already has VR support and it's awesome.
Surely The Last Guardian is imminent.
Are they all DLSS, Ray Tracing at a 120 fps minimum?
Unfortunately, doesn't seem Sony is using Ray Tracing on games yet. I am sure there will be ways to hack it in though.
Lol most steam games don't support Ray tracing and dlss, weak attempt at a shit post.
I think the attempt was successful on you...
Things are going to get very interesting if Sony starts dropping some big first party games on Steam.
Gaming started on PC and it will end on PC.
PC gaming was trash until the turn of the century. Gaming started in the arcades. You crack on though ignorance is bliss so I'm told.
Wrong. Pong and Oregon Trail were some of the first games ever developed and came out on the PC. All consoles are is underpowered PC tower boxes. Hold this L.
Ever heard of pinball. Its been around since the 1930s "Hold this L" Wow
Yes, trash such as Half-Life, Grim Fandango, GTA, Divine Divinity games, Starcraft, World of Warcraft, Fallout 1&2, Planescape Torment, Tomb Raider games, Final Fantasy VII, Quake games, Unreal Tournament, Age of Empire games, System Shock, Thief, Baldur's Gate, AvP, The Longest Journey, Resident Evil games and these just from the top of my head.
Ooh it had some games shocking. Pales in comparison to consoles over the same time period. What about the hardware issues, will it even run? Will it look like crap because my card doesn't have this feature. You had to have the right video card for the right games. And windows, my god it was awful.
I take back past statements. There is such a thing as wrong opinions.
Yes it had games, some of them considered at the time the best ever made by many gamers such as Half-Life, Baldur's Gate 2 (to many still the best RPG ever made), Diablo 2 (to many still the best action ARPG ever made) and Planescape Torment (to many still has the best story ever told in this medium) so you're nothing but an ignorant running your mouth and I like how you moved the goalposts from trash to comparing PC to consoles as if consoles somehow erased the quality PC gaming had to offer and despite PC sharing some of the best games on consoles at the time particularly FF7, MGS and RE2 but also TR games, Dino Crisis, Resident Evil 1&2, Abe's Oddysee etc so go on, reply to me again so that I can laugh more at the expense of your ignorance.
“ ignorance is bliss so I'm told.” Kindda ironic really.
PC really needs these console ports. PC has leaned too much on CRPGs, ARPGs and strategy games and MMO filler. I am enjoying POE 2 on my PC, but still...
This is great for gamers any way, and if they can milk another platform for more money, that means more exclusive experiences on Playstation. More profits = more experiences. Just remember that.
Lmao. It's cute you think that.
You don't think Sony takes their profits and reinvests in their IP's?
So more sales doesn't lead to the better chance of sequels, or that that extra revenue won't be invested into other titles within a company that releases games as a means of revenue? It's cute that you think that.
Yeah not sure why people are losing their minds over this. I imagine Sony will release games that aren't really selling anymore on PlayStation and stick them on PC for some extra revenue. The big exclusives will most likely either stay on console permanently or stay on for a decent amount of time to make buying the console worthwhile. Sony gets more money and carry's on making games, which is what we all want at the end of the day. This is good news for console gamers and PC gamers. Not everything is a fanboy war
