PlayStation has a wide range of great titles that define the PlayStation experience. Even if there is no other reason to own a PlayStation for someone, the sheer number of high-quality exclusive games makes consoles all worth it on their own. With games like Unexplored, The last of us, Spiderman, Y God of War, the PlayStation lineup is pretty close to being unbeatable. Sony began to test the waters to bring its exclusives by putting the acclaimed open world title, Horizon: Zero Dawn, on PC in August.

In an interview with GQ, Jim Ryan noted the choice to bring the PlayStation line to PC, which will continue to expand with Past days this spring. (Bend Studio has appropriately celebrated this upcoming port with a Sony own animated meme on Twitter). Going into detail about Sony Interactive’s strategy, Ryan stated:
“We are now in early 2021 with our development studios and the games they do in better shape than ever. Particularly starting in the second half of the PS4 cycle, our studios created wonderful and great games. There is an opportunity to expose those great games to a wider audience and recognize the economics of game development, which is not always straightforward. The cost of making games increases with each cycle, as the caliber of the IP has improved. In addition, it has increased our ease of making it available to those without a console. So it’s a pretty straightforward decision for us.. “
Ryan also went on to discuss how Horizon A fairly faulty PC port was received, suggesting that there were not enough strong negative reactions to deter future PlayStation titles. “We evaluate the exercise in two ways. First of all, in terms of the success of the activity of publishing the game on PC, people liked it and bought it. We also saw it through the lens of what the PlayStation community thought about it. There was no massive adverse reaction. So we will continue to take missionary steps in this direction.“Ryan said.
Needless to say, PC looks like it will be a great platform for Sony in the future with Past days helping to lead the charge. It remains to be seen if it will only bring players up to speed on PS4 titles that may have sequels on PS5 or if it will also include PS5 titles. Ryan also talked a lot about the future of PSVR, which will continue on PS5 with a new headset, DualSense-enabled controllers, a single cable tied to the console. It seems the future is bright for Play station as the company continues to innovate and expand.
