The slow camera turn speed of the original game turned me off after a few hours. I really can't go back to PS5 unless they let us whip that bad boy around quickly. I'll wait for it to hit PC 5 years after release :(

It's been so blatantly obvious that was a huge reason Sony put the game on PC..

Why anyone denied it is beyond me, people just can't think outside of their own thought bubble.

They make a little bit of cash, and advertise their brand.. which still is largely exclusive to their consoles.

Horizon Zero Dawn drops on Steam in 5 minutes. Can't wait for user reviews. It's 5pm where I live, it's time to make myself a drink and have a laugh.

Yeah this sounds like Sony is enticing the PC audience along with the rumor about timed exclusives being associated previously with Xbox releasing 1st on the PS5

I still don't believe PS will put their every game on PC, just a chosen few but either way, I play on consoles :)

Nobody cares about "user reviews" though. There will always be a vocal minority angry on their keyboard, devs know pretty well it doesn't mean much. TLOU2 got destroyed in user reviews, it had zero effect on sales or pro reviews.

If they invested in a port for HZD, the odds are very high that games after that will also be ported to PC.
Judging by reviews, they really didn't invest in a port (which, again, was not done by Guerrilla themselves) if the results are anything to go by.

Yea that was a bad move by them. They'll have to get their feet wet in this port to help shore it up. Hopefully they will be more involved with HFW.

Or they will gimp the PC version of HFW to make the PS5 version still worth picking up. All they have to do it hand the port over to an incompetent developer.

There's no way they're gonna release a Naughty Dog game on PC, bad enough seeing GG games on PC but please god not ND or Santa Monica
Well, depends of TLOUS2 legs. Just like RDR2. Those game have a tons of crunch and money invested, even with high sale numbers is not enough to take the development cost plus money used on PR.

I like to use RDR2 because RDR1 is not on PC and like TLOUS2 both games have problems with crunch in dev team. In the end of day, is up to Sony.

I genuinely don't understand people like you. Getting joy out of seeing people possibly be upset by something that doesn't impact you whatsoever is some straight up narcissistic shit.

Yea that’s not going to happen. Sony need to learn that PC players are not remotely interested in console games and giving them a good game that they can’t brag about destroying its console counterpart is not helping their cause.

The writing is on the wall. For both Sony and Microsoft the name of the game is changing. PlayStation and Xbox are becoming platforms.

-Console
-PC
-Streaming
-Subscription Library (PSNow/Game Pass)

Microsoft is moving there faster than PlayStation yes, but both are taking very deliberate steps. Sony can take their time with the transformation-there is no need to rush.

This transformation means maintaining a library of exclusives for your platform will be important than ever. The idea that this somehow makes your PlayStation or Xbox worth less than before is pathetic and laughable.

This simply isn't true. I own a PS4 Pro,got the platinum for HZD already,and I'm sitting here waiting for the download to finish on PC to play the game all over again.

You guys here paint with some broad ass strokes.

lol these people dont even want to use the Epic store to buy video games, and Sony thinks they will buy a $500 console to play their exclusives. how delusional are they?

the hardcore PC gamer is never going to buy consoles. Console players will buy PCs sure, but these are the players Sony should be focused on keeping. And these ports will encourage those console players to invest in PC instead of the PS5.
