It will be interesting to see whether or not PlayStation eventually follows Microsoft’s move to release games simultaneously on PC and console. At the end of the day, money talks. Regardless of how some PlayStation fans feel about the move, if Sony thinks it makes financial sense, it will probably do just that. Microsoft has been ahead of the curve in that regard, but we’ll just have to see whether or not Sony joins them in the future! PlayStation has seen a bit of backlash from some of its fans over PC releases. Some have gone so far as to argue that PS4 ports dilute the value of owning a PlayStation console. That argument has a lot of flaws, of course, considering that these games are enjoying a good deal of timed exclusivity. However, offering PS4 games on additional platforms allows more players to enjoy them, and provides Sony with an additional revenue stream. That’s becoming increasingly important as the cost of game development grows. In the case of Uncharted 4, it also gives Sony a chance to introduce the brand to new audiences ahead of the movie’s release.
