Sony’s been testing the waters of PC releases for a little while now. A few PlayStation specific titles have hit the PC over the years; most notably Horizon Zero Dawn back in 2020. Since that release there have been a few more prominent titles, but nothing on the scale of what Microsoft is doing these days.
It looks like Sony’s starting to take the PC market a little bit more seriously, though. August 17 marked the official launch of PlayStation on PC. Sony’s got a whole new section on the PlayStation website dedicated to its PC catalog, complete with helpful links to where to buy them.
It’s also got a frequently asked questions section, with some helpful answers alongside one or two not so helpful answers. There’s not very many overall, though, and they’re well 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 about 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, also in 2022. I’ve been waiting to play Miles Morales for literal years. My PS4 died a ways back, right as the PS5 was coming out. Easy solve, I’ll just buy a PS5.
I still don’t have a PS5. But now I don’t need one, because Miles Morales is coming to the PC. I adored the original Marvel’s Spider-Man. My review probably shows that off; it hit me in a way few other games manage. Add to that Miles Morales, my favorite Spider-Man from my (now defunct) favorite comic line?
It’s a match made in heaven.
