Sony wants to further expand its PC strategy. Reason enough to write a wish list to the Playstation group.
- We need the whole Uncharted series
- where we are already at Naughty Dog...
- There are still two Soulsborne games missing
- Aloy's story must also go on for PC gamblers
- Returnal needs a larger audience
- One of my favorite PS4 games should not be missing
If I had been told five years ago that Sony would publish games for the PC, I would have shown it a bird to that. "Sure, Playstation games that are sold on Steam. Exactly! And tomorrow will learn pigs fly." Well, there were probably many surprised when the group announced that it would launch a PC version of Horizon Zero Dawn in the summer of 2020. The pleasure of the initial technical problems (here we go to our test at the time), but there was great joy that such a good, previously PS4-exclusive open world adventure could suddenly be played on Windows systems.
PC implementations from Days Gone and the God of War from 2018 followed, which went smoothly from the start. PC gamblers are currently waiting for the porting of the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, which contains the fourth part of the action adventure series and the spin-off the Lost Legacy. Further games have not yet been specified. But that Sony wants to continue using the market is obvious, where you are now looking for a senior director, PC Planning and Strategy. This should ensure growth of sales on the PC and develop a suitable marketing plan, as well as identify future sectors and partnerships that lead to commercial growth.
Now I still think it is unlikely that Sony will publish games so quickly at the same time for its consoles and the PC, as Microsoft has been doing for several years. I also do not believe that we receive any remasters from old games from the PS1 to PS3 generations that have not previously been published for the PS4 and PS5. However, there are still enough top-class players in which I think a PC release in (sometimes not too distant) future-and the simply have to come!
We need the whole Uncharted series
At some point in the coming months (Sony still has not mentioned a specific appointment, as rumors it could be so far in July), as already mentioned, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy on the PC. This is great because both are excellent action games (in my opinion the best parts of the series). But it cannot be that PC gamblers are only served the last chapter of Nathan Drake's story and the somewhat smaller lookout with Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross in the leading roles. No, the first three Uncharteds has to submit Sony. They have already been published as Nathan Drake Collection for the PS4. So that collection could certainly be portrayed well to the PC.
Part 1 in particular may no longer play great today (he was not a high-flyer at the gameplay level even at the time), but the stories and their staging still ensure a large portion of fun. PC players should definitely get the opportunity to catch up with these classics-and not just via streaming via PlayStation Now (soon PlayStation Plus Premium). And I'm not the only one who thinks.
Now Uncharted: Buy Legacy of Thieves Collection!
where we are already at Naughty Dog...
With Uncharted, Naughty Dog established himself as a developer of a large action blockbuster. The highlights of the studio of the studio are the two "The Last of Us" games. No question, they must not stay away from the PC. Everyone must have experienced the story around Joel and Ellie in a post-apocalyptic world in which a parasite has transformed large parts of humanity into zombie-like monstrosities. The Last of Us: Part 2 may be controversial, but if you ask me, it is one of the best games of the past consolation generation that could shine a bit more on the PC than on PS4 and PS5.
It can be doubted whether the first The Last of Us will appear in its original version or the remaster version for the PC. After all, it is an open secret that a remake is in the works. So it is quite possible that Sony will take a few more years before you provide the series PC players and then offer you directly the new edition developed for PS5.
Now buy the last of us: Part 2!
There are still two Soulsborne games missing
All "Dark Souls" parts and Elden ring can be played on the PC (and of course Sekiro, but that is a completely different kind of game). Two of the great titles made of From software smithy are still missing on Steam and these are not surprisingly the ones that appeared under the Sony Banner: Demon's Souls and Bloodborne. After a new edition of the PS4 published for the PS4, Gothic horror trips have been shouting for a long time-or at least a patch that ensures that you can enjoy it on PlayStation 5 with 60 fps. In the meantime, a remaster is much more likely and that will have to find its way to the PC sooner or later. The only question is whether from software, which is not part of the Playstation Studios family, is interested in exposing Bloodborne. Maybe Sony would have to hire another studio with the job.
Bluepoint Games could certainly take over it, the team behind the remake of Demon's Souls. We would already be with the topic. It is extremely unlikely that the PS3 original from 2009 will still be released for the PC. But I prefer to take the new edition anyway (and yes, I know that not every fan shares the opinion). The joke is: The remake that came onto the market for the launch of the PS5 was even announced for the PC for a short time. However, according to Sony, it was a mistake in the very first version of the 2020 debut trailer from 2020. Since then, the group has not commented on the topic - and the release of the game has been a year and a half ago. Can we still hope for porting now? Sony, tell us! Please!

Aloy's story must also go on for PC gamblers
As mentioned at the beginning, Horizon Zero Dawn was the first game that Sony published for the PC. There must be enough success, otherwise there would probably not be Days Gone and God of War for Windows computers today. As is well known, the successor Horizon Forbidden West for PlayStation 4 and 5 has been published in February. Certainly we cannot expect a PC implementation to follow this year. It is quite possible that it will not be seen in 2023. But maybe 2024?
However long we have to wait, it would not be understandable if Sony were withheld the second part around Aloy and the post-apocalyptic world with robot dinos PC gamblers. And it would also be stupid, because even if Forbidden West narratively does not reach the class of the predecessor, it is noticeably better. The eponymous prohibited vest is one of the most beautiful, most impressive game worlds of the recent past. In any case, I would like to marvel at it in an even more beautiful version on the PC.

Returnal needs a larger audience
Returnal is guaranteed by all the games mentioned here with the smallest target group. The third-person shooter with a rogue liter principle and dark sci-fi mystery story was only published for the PlayStation 5 and a damn demanding game. You need a high level of frustrity if you do not want to be driven crazy by the recent masterpiece of the Finnish developer Housemarque. But I promise you: If you get involved in Returnal, you can enjoy a very special gaming experience.
In my opinion, as many players should get the chance to have this experience. Now Sony will do the devil and ever publish a game for an Xbox console, but a PC release would make sure that many more people could try return. The game and Housemarque definitely deserve this increased attention. And as well as the thing can be played with the controller, I would like to play it with a mouse and keyboard.
Buy return now!
One of my favorite PS4 games should not be missing
I almost forgot it, but not mentioning Ghost of Tsushima at this point would have been a grant of the highest class. If the Infamous games that Sucker Punch had previously developed could not really inspire me, the Samurai adventure on the eponymous island fully impressed me. It may not shine with great variety in gameplay, but the atmosphere, the ingenious combat system, the cleverly designed progression and the beautiful game world have more than balanced.
I personally do not necessarily need a PC version. I am very satisfied with the Director's cut for the PS5. But I have a friend who has neither two youngest Sony consoles and the Ghost of Tsushima would certainly like. For him and all the others to whom the trip to Tsushima has so far been denied, I hope that protagonist Jin Sakai will soon open Mongolian throats on the PC, caress cute foxes and write bad haikus.
