Mobile gaming is a completely different thing and market. It is lower end hardware, made to play on the go, in short burst, for less quality concerned consumers, whom are much more price sensitive. It is a different costumer base.Given that all games are developed on PC and if SONY is making money from both the PS5 user and PC user. How is that a competitor for time and more so money?
Pc gaming serves roughly the same purpose as console gaming, pc and console is roughly the same experience.
When sony publish their first party games on pc, there is less incentive to play games on playstation.
Sony makes money of third party games sold on playstation. They take a 30% cut on every game sold on playstation. For every call of duty, fifa or gta sold on playstation, sony gets a 30% cut. They dont get a cut on third party games on pc.
If you dont need a playstation to play playstation games there is less incentives to buy a playstation.
If playstation sells less hardware. There is less third party games sold on playstation. Thus less money being made.
First party games merely exist to sell playstations. fewer people will buy playstation if they can play all games on pc.
Also on pc sony only get 70% on all sold first party games. Since they have to give steam a cut.
But you knew all of this.
