Over the years, Sony has dipped its toes into PC gaming with ports of popular PlayStation titles.

Exactly what this means for the future of PlayStation games on PC is unknown, as Sony has yet to comment. That being said, it wouldn’t be unusual for Sony to release a PlayStation PC game launcher. Many publishers have their own launchers in PC gaming, which are front-end programs that act as a library from which to launch various games. In some cases, the launchers also serve as a storefront for purchasing games. The Epic Games Store, GOG Galaxy, EA’s Origin, Ubisoft Connect (aka Uplay), and Bethesda Launcher are all publisher-managed PC game launchers. Launching the PC versions of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2 requires the use of Rockstar Launcher, even for copies purchased and running via Steam or EGS.
At the moment, Sony’s PlayStation PC port does not require a PlayStation PC Game Launcher or PSN account to function. Perhaps the integration into Marvel’s Spider-Man is intended as an optional. Perhaps Sony intends to patch in an account requirement in the future. However, any predictions are purely speculative at this time.
Marvel’s Spider-Man, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Days Gone and God of War are available on PC as well as PS4.Get latest news and articles related to gaming only at Gaming Strat.
