If the president of Sony Interactive Entertainment was not asked to congratulate himself on the 10 million PlayStation 5s sold worldwide, he was also cooked over possible PC ports by Home Exclusives, especially since the studio takeover. Always ask for complacency, here is the prospect’s answer:
We are very satisfied with the quality of the games developed by PlayStation Studios. Our line-up is one of the strongest we’ve seen thanks to titles like MLB The Show 21 [ndlr : nous sommes au Japon, o le baseball occupe la place de sport national], Returnal or Ratchet & Clank Dirft Apart. We will of course continue to develop exclusive products for console gamers in the years to come.
We are also very happy to be able to port our licenses to PC, even if we are only at the beginning of our cooperation with Nixxes, who will support us in this mission.
Which titles will go into the hands of the Dutch after Days Gone and Horizon Zero Dawn? At the beginning of the year, Ryan even hinted at a list of titles that should already appear on Steam or the Epic Games Store.Care should be taken that the latter give rise to doubts.
And if the manufacturer’s practice levels off slightly, the console’s market priority should keep a head start at the moment, since the ports mentioned above do not arrive, no matter what “several months“after their release on PS4 or PS5. Courage: It seems that at the end of patience there is heaven.
