Sony has been testing the waters of PC releases for a while now. A few PlayStation-specific titles have appeared on PC over the years; most notably Horizon Zero Dawn in 2020. There have been a few more prominent titles since that release, but nothing on the scale of what Microsoft does today.
However, it seems that Sony is starting to take the PC market a little more seriously. August 17 marked the official launch of Playstation on PC. Sony has a brand new section on the PlayStation website dedicated to the PC catalog, complete with helpful links to where to buy them.
It also has a FAQ section, with some helpful answers in addition to one or two not so helpful answers. There aren’t many, though, and they’re definitely worth a quick read.
The titles currently listed and linked on PlayStation on PC are God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, Days Gone, Horizon Zero Dawn, Helldivers and Predator Hunting Grounds.
These are all games that have been out. I know you know these and where to buy them. The upcoming titles section, though? That’s where the magic is.
The “Upcoming Games” section
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is coming in the fall of 2022. The Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is coming sometime, including in 2022. I’ve literally waited years to play Miles Morales. My PS4 died way back, right when the PS5 came out. Easy to fix, I just buy a PS5.
I still don’t have a PS5. But now I don’t need one, because Miles Morales is coming to PC. I loved the original Marvel’s Spider-Man. My rating probably show that; it touched me in a way that few other games do. Add to that Miles Morales, my favorite Spider-Man from my (now defunct) favorite comic book series?
It’s a match made in heaven.
