Days Gone and Other PlayStation Exclusives Heading to PC This Spring

Sony is planning to bring more of its PlayStation exclusives to PC. First up will be Days Gone coming this spring, Sony president and chief executive officer Jim Ryan told British GQ. Developer Bend Studio also confirmed the news on Twitter, adding: “Stay tuned for more details.”

Days Gone, published in the spring of 2019, was the first console game by Bend Studio since 2007’s Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow for PlayStation 2.

Days Gone received mixed reviews at launch, with most of the disappointment leveled at its repetitive gameplay loop. Still, the game has developed a following in the two years since, and is part of the 20-game PS Plus Collection offered to PlayStation 5 owners with a PlayStation Plus subscription.

For quite a while, Sony refused to put first-party PlayStation titles on PC. But, according to Ryan, that’s all going to change. “We find ourselves now in early 2021 with our development studios and the games that they make in better shape than they’ve ever been before,” Ryan said. He added that Sony’s studios have made some “wonderful” games that could stand to be exposed to a greater audience.

“The cost of making games goes up with each cycle, as the calibre of the IP has improved. Also, our ease of making it available to non-console owners has grown. So it’s a fairly straightforward decision for us to make,” Ryan said. In other words, it’s getting more and more expensive to create these games, but it’s also getting easier to create PC ports. It’s time for Sony to take advantage of this ease and start raking in revenue from PC owners.

PlayStation 5 Stock to Be Available on Amazon in Europe on Launch Day

The PlayStation 5 console launches in Europe in just two days, and it will be possible to purchase it on Amazon in select countries.

The retailer recently sent out emails to customers to inform them that a PlayStation 5 stock will be available for purchase on November 19th on Amazon UK, Spain, and Italy. Consoles will be made available from 12:00 PM UTC, 1:00 PM CET.

As quantities are going to be limited, you'd better gear up to be able to purchase a PlayStation 5 console. Among the next-gen consoles, it is the one that feels like a true step into the next generation, according to Kai.

Sony's entry into the next-generation console war is the one that feels like a proper next-gen system. Rather than simply expanding on the existing libraries, Sony has established themselves as the console that's going to bring gamers into a new era. The software and UI are both early on in their implementation, but it's the combination of Sony's new Tempest AudioTech, titles that can take advantage of the SSD, and the DualSense controller that truly make this console stand out among the rest.

The PlayStation 5 console is now out in North America, Japan, and other select countries. It launches this week 'November 19th', to the rest of the world.
