Good news but a mistake from Sony imo, the never to be ported exclusives were a big part of a PlayStation brand.

Personally, since I don't mind to wait, I might never buy another ps again, and I had plans to buy 5 on release. Anyway, will happily put PS5 money into a gpu, long live PC the king.

Garth Merenghi quotes
Most of you will probably know me already from my extensive canon of chillers including "Afterbirth" in which a mutated placenta attacks Bristol.

Everyone has a special talent. Mine is being able to write, produce direct, act, paint... Other people are good plumbers, that's their gift.

There are rebels and there are innovators. I'm a rebel. I play a rebel brain expert who's in rebelliance against conventional logic, who's in rebelliance against the world order. It's about rebelliance. And if that's not being an innovator, I don't know what is.

In times of conflict, when you're up against an agressor, be he human, be he inhuman, whoe'er he be, often he is both.

Greetings traveller. Who am I? Perhaps you have met me twixt sleep and and wake - in the penumbra of uncertainity you call unconsiousness... you know, my books are essentialy about "what ifs". In "Black Fang" I asked - what if a rat could drive a bus? And what if it and its rat brethren took over and ate Parliment?

A lot of people say "Garth Merenghi? Doesn't he write that horror crap?" Well, you're an idiot, because my books always say something, even if it's simple like "Don't geneticaly engineer crabs to be as big as man". There's always a message or a theme.

Rumor has it that the PS4 exclusive title, Dreams (made by Media Molecule (a Sony owned Studio)), has the go-ahead from Sony for a PC release.

Sony Reportedly Has Plans to Port More Console Exclusives to PC, Including Dreams


"According to Eurogamer’s Tom Phillips, SIE has plans to release more console exclusives on PC going forward, and hinted that Media Molecule’s Dreams will be one of them.

Former PlayStation Worldwide Studios Chairman Shawn Layden also hinted that SIE is considering releasing its games on multiple platforms in an interview with Bloomberg last August." (source)

I totally agree, I hardly use my PS4, only for exclusives so maybe no ps5 later for me either

Maybe they're discovering PC gaming is profitable after all, after those years of "doom and gloom".

The people who buy $399 or $499 Playstations aren't going to be the same people that build $1500 gaming PC's for the most part, so they aren't going to lose sales, and in fact will gain sales because they will still have their dedicated console fanbase and high end PC gamers on top as cherry.

Low end PC gamers (like KAC) who can't afford or unwilling to buy $800+ video cards won't be able to take advantage of high resolutions, more effects, etc anyways.. so will play the game on a console. No lost sale for Sony for their first party title.

It's a win/win for Sony, as it already is a win/win for MS. Xbox sales are still strong despite pretty much every game being cross platform, and they've discovered better ways to make money via Xbox gamepass.

Dreams will probably come to PC because it has zero hype on PS4. That game is going to tank like Project Spark.

I do think Sony will keep some exclusives, like Last of Us and Uncharted. Uncharted collection would sell pretty well on PC though.

Strangely enough, Naughty Dog are looking for someone to work in TLOU2, who has experience with graphics technology for nVidia as well as AMD. With the Playstation 4 and 5 having nothing to do with nVidia, that's remarkable.

Te only reason sony is doing this is because the ps4 was profitable. The ps5 probably will be too. Usually consoles are not very profitable and they use exclusives to sell unit so they can sell more games because the games are where they make the money back. I take this as a sign that they arent so worried about whether or not the ps5 will sell, and or that they already made their profits back from game sales so now ps4 games on pc are just pure profit.

It's unlikely for another console to have the same life span of profits like the PlayStation 2 or xbox original did. So why not get some more money elsewhere. Especially when any ports of these games will be bare minimum, as they wouldnt have been making pc versions at the time of creation.

An alternate theory could be that they have a lot of confidence that the specs of the PS5 will compete head to head with gaming PCs at a much lower price point. So, they don't need to rely on exclusives to sell it.

Yes but none of these are PS5 exclusives. They where PS4 exclusives. How much you wanna bet these series see sequals and those end up PS5 only.

I suppose a long time ago, porting a PS exclusive was more of a headache than it was worth, because a Playstation was pretty far from PC hardware. Porting has become easier, and console exclusives like Dark Souls that made the jump to multiplatform (very) successfully have shown how the market reacts.

Having timed exclusives for one, two or even three years could be very interesting for Sony. Essentially, you'd be looking at the market of gamers with high end hardware, and that's exactly the market that wouldn't necessarily be caught in the Playstation world anyway.
