Also i guess he thinks it's just a matter of time till day1 releases or let's say 6-12 months timed exclusives.
I know its speculation, but this will never happen. Best to hope for 2/3 years. Otherwise forbidden west would be there day one. Same engine, only just ported zero dawn so have rhe experience....
Most of Sony's money is made from their captive users on the PSN.
The author also puts massive caveats at the bottom of the article. And you now have the complication of Ratchet and Demon's requiring an SSD for example. True, high end gamers will almost certainly have an SSD but what about a significant portion that don't?
It's a way for Sony to reuse IP that's a bit older and resell it on another platform at the end of the day. You're basically making PC owners pay to play ports of older releases. It's purely business, but a nice valueadd for those on PC. But you ain't gonna be there day one for the big summer blockbuster releases. E.g. Sure I could go the cinema to see a film, or wait and pay a premium for a sub service like Disney+, or wait till it hits Sky Movies. If I really love and want to play Uncharted, am I going to buy it or wait till it appears on PS+ for example.
At the moment a few older non flagship games have made their way to PC. Horizon could be a flagship depending on how well they improve the sequel. At the moment, this leak looks to be fake but even if it isnt, uncharted has been laid to rest for the forseeable and even if revived doesn't look like it would be the tier 1 studio doing the release.
