Uncharted 4 For PC has been spotted in some official Sony docs on their official website. All we need now is a release date.
Dang this would look super sweet maxed out at 90+fps at 1440p, super smooth and top graphics. Pretty big bombshell.
Is it though?
It's going to sell millions for the graphics alone. I will definitely will be rebuying it on PC.
I also remember when PC players were downplaying Ps4 exclusives. Those same people can't wait to experience the greatness now and once they do they will have a hard time not getting a ps5 for NDs next game. Guaranteed!
@Atticus_finch Literally no PC players were downplaying PS4 exclusives. Please prove me wrong though.
But you know what it probably won't even sell well if it were released on PC. If the rumors are true and UC4 comes to PC and sells like crap. What incentive will PS devs have to release games Day-1? NONE! Zero incentive. Not that this was ever PS' plan to start with. It is also just so funny how we see PC (always Microsoft Windows guys) saying how awesome it would be if PS games came out for their computers while simultaneously slamming them as ugly, aimless, cinematic, walking simulators that they wouldn't ever touch... and yet here we are in just another thread filled with people drooling over the possibility of yet another one of those games coming out to their computers... which they will likely ignore as they promised while simultaneously BEGGING FOR IT! PC "gamers" are the worst.
Even in 4K 60fps. I'll just rebuy it just for that
Next time someone asks why Sony port their exclusives to PC, Sony just told you why ROI 250%+ Create new fans for our IP Target new geographies
There's little reason not to after 6 years. U4 is old news by now and suddenly everyone is talking about it.
Wait so you're going to pretend this is a bad thing. Sony making millions on a 6 year old game. How sad! When U4 came out Obama was still president. Factually old news! Yea it burns so much. Oh well back to TLoU2 on Ps5 😘
Days Gone & Horizon aren't that old though and Sony has made it clear more is comming, Naughty Dog were hiring people with experience in porting games last year so i'd expect others from their catalogue to come as well. It wasn't too long ago when you'd be scoffed for suggesting Sony would put any games on PC, no need to get defensive lol.
Jim Ryan wasn't the leader of PS back then. He clearly has a different agenda. I expect more Sony exclusives to make their way to PC a faster and faster in the future.
@aqua You are being way too fancy. MONEY! They are doing it for money. It's that simple.
Why not bring over the trilogy to go along with Uncharted 4? I wonder if Sony will also port The Lost Legacy as well with Uncharted 4.
A bit odd to be honest. I wonder if it's going to be a Gears of War 4 case, that didn't sold as well as other Microsoft titles and that was blamed on the lack of the previous games on the platform (PC only have the First Gears).
Gears (outside of Tactics) has never sold well on PC. The reason MS never released any titles on PC up until 4, is because the first one performed poorly (saleswise) on the platform. Gears 5 literally tanked on PC.
@ZwVw Do you have the sales report of the original Gears? Because as far as I know that was never made public and being a GFWL's title there is no tracking for it. But in any case. Sales of the franchise probably didn't matter as at the time Microsoft PC output was completly wonkers. So much so that the next big PC release by Microsoft was Fable III almost 3 years after Gears of War original launch. Also Gears 5 estimative sales on PC is between 500k and 1M on Steam alone. Meanwhile Gears Tactics is between 50k and 100k. With the all-time peak numbers confirming Gears 5 > Tactics. So unless you have a secret report of the sales on the Windows Store/Xbox App I fail to see how Gears 5 tanked and how Tactics sold well. And in any case that is not important to the discussion. The point is that porting the 4th title on a franchise to a platform that don't have the previous ones. Especially in a linked series like Uncharted may result in less sales than a collection or even the first one alone would gather.
My guess is the first three Uncharted games were made using older engines which are not easily ported to other platforms. But IIRC there was an Uncharted 1-3 for PS4? Technically it should be relatively easy to port it from there. But there you have it. It's not that it makes sense or not from a gamer standpoint but that it might cost a lot more to port the first three than just Uncharted 4. Maybe they will consider making the extra investment if Uncharted 4 on PC sells enough.
Would love it they brought the whole series over, played UC on PS3 and then the remasters on the PS4. Happy to buy the lot on PC again as it is one of my favorite series in gaming.
I just hope this leads to a 60fps patch on PS5 :) would totally warrant a replay.
I know UC4 isn't a lot of people favorite in the series but I've easily beat it 4 times. Love uncharted
I can't wait for that, U4 has aged like wine.
Yea but it's also made by the best Devs in the industry. The reason why you're so excited.
Whaaaaaa! Omg, I hope this revitalizes the multiplayer! Classic Mode is so hard to find a match... though if this is true, they will probably ditch the mp, like the Nathan Drake collection = (
I’m glad PC players finally get to experience this masterpiece!
I’m kinda wondering if these ports will support duelsense. If so that will be big. They already have metro why not these games?
Don't see why they won't if the games make use of it
They are older ports so that would mean the devs would have to implement them. I don’t see Sony having new exclusives on pc for at least a year or 2
The more the merrier. Hopefully a Ps5 patch will come too.
I know right. Jim Ryan indeed needs to be removed from his position as CEO. And fast.
I really don’t care at this point. Own all the systems.
Honestly, after actually reading the pdf, I am more confident PS will continue to be very successful. https://www.sony.com/en/Son... It is clear they see the important of exclusives, and releasing ports have high ROI. Also it helps them to expand to countries they are not that big on consoles (or can't even sell consoles legally)
The ROI was much less than making the original PS4 game because all they did was port it to PC. So the money spent was far less the time spent was about a year instead of 10 and the amount of units sold was less than 1 million units in a month out of a billion users and the game was released on Steam and Epic. Even so their ROI was only 250+% not 300+% not 800+% just 250+% for 1 year of work and around a million units sold out of a massive installed base. That's a HORRIBLE ROI! And that ROI would not exist if the game was made exclusively for PC. And people wonder why games made for PC are just bad?
Hell yea! One of the best looking games ever made...The thought of playing this at 120fps 1440p is orgasmic!
The graphics aren't even the best part. The story, sound and MP are in my opinion the the best parts.
It’s basically free money at this point. They have already made their millions off sales of the game. The rest is just gravy.
well if this will get the freaking patch for the PS5, well go for it. :D
Why are we buying PlayStation hardware then? Is this what Sony is trying to do is phase out PlayStation hardware giving them and excuse to just go to PC? Then just call it quits and do software for PC. Nintendo are the ONLY ones holding their ground and sticking with and putting immense faith in their own hardware and software. PlayStation's wilting like a flower and even if Jim Ryan goes, the precident had already been set, the damage is done.
PlayStation hardware isn’t going anywhere, people said the same thing years ago with Xbox bringing games to PC and yet Xbox Series exists. There’s always going to be a huge segment of gamers who don’t want to game on a PC, deal with the problems on PC or just don’t have $2000 to spend on a PC. Console gaming is way more accessible and affordable.
Why do you always claim a good PC costs 2 grand? You legitimately always state it costs two grand. I built a PC during the 360/PS3 era that blew the consoles out of the water, and was only surpassed by by the X that many years later. It cost me about half that. Costs aren't far different today.
TheRealTedCruz, You are talking about the 360/ps3 era. I want you to try to make a pc that can contend with the ps5/Xbox series x. Without the inflated price tag right now. If you can make a PC that can Compare to the XSX/PS5 then please prove me wrong.
@TheRealTedCruz If you want a powerful PC that lasts you for a good while, you will need to spend around 2 grand or even more.
@therealted... Even back in the 360 ps3 days I had to spend about 1,500 to have a computer at the time that would make it worth the money over playing on the those consoles... and when the ps4 came out if I wanted a pc at the time that could compete I spent 700 dollars on a graphics card alone. Now days if you want a of that will beat what the Ps5 can do, you have to spend up towards the 2 grand. It’s just a fact. Sure if you want to spend a thousand on a pc and be able to play most new games you can, but it will not run the games better than a ps5 or Xbox could, once again you would have to be at the 2 grand price point to make it worth upgrading and having a pc preform better than the current consoles... now two years from now maybe not, but at that time I suspect that might have mid gen console coming around the corner... Used to make a lot of sense at the end of a console gen like last two years to have a pc for multiplatfrom games. But with mid gen consoles not so much... if you wanted a pc to out perform a PS4 pro and Xbox 1x you where looking at like 2000 bucks again. So. But to each their own if you are a pc only guy all good not saying you can’t do that shit . But consoles IMO after playing on everything and dealing with everything, are pretty good and easy and affordable.. I do not see console going away anytime soon...
My PC cost around 600 and lasted over 4 years. The 2k talk is rubbish designed to try and dissuade people from dropping consoles.
$1299 gaming pc from Best Buy https://www.bestbuy.com/sit... Another $100 to upgrade the HDD to SSD. Still a long ways from $2000. And going forward, just do upgrades. Folks seem to think that every PC is built from scratch. Just not the case. From this point, it breaks even going forward with the lower cost of upgrades and the fact that there are no online fees and games are just cheaper. That doesn't mean PC gaming is for everyone. Most console gamers would rather just buy a console. Leave it at that though. No need to embellish on the cost of PC gaming. @Killer73nova Consoles are now essentially custom made PCs selling at a loss. So yeah....no one is going to be able to build a PC equivalent for the same amount of money. But this works both ways. No one is going to be able to buy a console that matches a powerful gaming PC at any price.
Because they are porting games from their previous generation. Tell me when I'm gonna play Rift Apart, Returnal or Demon's Souls on my PC. Oh, wait.... xD
"Why are we buying PlayStation hardware then" Chill so far that have released years old games. If Sony can make a extra few million to fund more games than fine. But I will agree with you if they ever get to the point where they release first party games on both ps5 and pc on the same day. As that it when i move on from playstation and just own a pc and have best of pc/Xbox and playstation.
Why does PlayStation want to be Xbox? Its Xbox thats always wanted to be PlayStation. Phil Spencer has been mimicking Kaz Hirai and Jack Tretton.
It’s not that PS wants to be Xbox or Xbox wants to be PS. They are both corporations who want to make money and satisfy shareholders. Sony stated they made over 250% ROI on PC games - that’s why they are continuing doing it.
In another one of the slides it also shows that the revenue from Console sales as a proportion of the total has dropped from about 50% during the start of the PS4 generation to just 20% now. Obviously they still need consoles because they take their own cut from all games on the PS Store, but software sales are becoming increasingly important.
By releasing gotys?
Well I certainly am not waiting 5-6 years to play these games,..Might as well wait 10 for a decent emulator. But in a way it is expanding the audience for these titles so It is cool in my book,.. This sort of ports actually got me to switch from PC to console, because the quality of some of these games are on a totally different level.
I mean, this one is six years, but this isn't that. They are testing the waters to release their exclusives on PC. Days gone came out like two years ago and was release on PC last week. HZD, released on PC. You have to see it the way they see it. They are not competing AGAINST PC, they are competing against Xbox. As long as you can't play their games on another console, that's the endgame. Will they end up putting their exclusives on PC day 1? Who knows, but this is a really interesting chain of events they are doing here.
Have no problems with this at all, sony makes more money to invest in there studios, more gamers get to play there amazing games but at the same time its still exclusive for a few years to the console so its not a big deal by the time they do go to pc as there old and no longer the bechmark games. If it was first day on pc then id havr an issue but a few years later is fine and a big win for everyone.
This is exactly what they say in the presentation. They specifically mention how much revenue is from MTX. Giving less reason to own the hardware would only decrease that potential. Let alone the slides prioritizing PS5 expansion. The PC market is to grow, not replace.
Not a huge surprise really, this is clearly becoming the norm. UC4 would look awesome at high res and high framerate, enough so that I would consider buying a 2nd copy.
It's nice that Sony is releasing their popular old exclusives to PC.
This is the start of a near exclusive-less generation! Please bring more. Bloodborne, Last of Us, God of War, etc.
I wish they would put the whole collection first so I could play them in order
I did the same on PS3, I hadn't played any Uncharted until the 3rd was out and then played all 3 back to back - good times! I hope they release the Nathan Drake collection on PC for you dude.
I have it on PS4 just never got to finish the first one . Ps4 pro kind of pissis me off with not supporting 1440p and the whole you cant run hdr when the psvr is hooked up so I would rather play them on PC
To the peeps who would wait 2 or 3 years(6 in this case) for pc versions...i salute you. I want it on release before they become dated .
Why not just bring the whole series remasterd on the PC, can also add ray tracing to, the PC would clearly do the Uncharted series justice as non other can 👍😁 Also why start with 4? What about the other 3, I'm sure the story follows each one.
I feel like this is leading to a Ps5 remaster...and I say bring it on!
Great news for the ppl who never got to play UC4
wow .this is a cool happy month for gamers till the end of june.it started with unreal 5 now this and e3 and state of play ....wowwwww.full of great news
i hope they add ray tracing to pc and ps5 ports .
