PlayStation Network Might Be Coming To PC
Unlike Xbox, PlayStation is taking its time with its integration with PC. Sony has launched some of its first party titles like Horizon: Zero Dawn and God of War on PC – albeit a long time after their console launches. However, it appears that the company may be ramping things up on the PC side, with a possibility of PlayStation Network coming to PC.
The news comes courtesy of a job listing for a Director of Product Management for PC Game Experiences spotted by DualShockers. The position is based in San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, or Orange County and will require candidates to "Lead & grow the PlayStation PC Game Experiences Product organization including staffing, leadership, and employee development!"
But the part that stands out the most is this: "Lead and evolve the PlayStation game experience roadmap for all game related experiences including SDK development, client application experiences as PlayStation network Platform integration."
It's unclear how exactly Sony aims to integrate PSN to PC. But from the timing of it, it seems like the new PS Plus tier system has something to do with it. Considering that there are still only a handful of Sony first party games available on PC as of now, it could be theorized that Sony will port more of them before announcing a separate PS Plus tier PC. Of course, all of this should be taken with a pinch of salt as it may not amount to anything as of yet.
Sony recently revealed a list of games that will be available with the new PS Plus tier system. As part of the PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium/Deluxe plans, players will get access to games like God of War, Bloodborne, and Horizon Zero Dawn. Additionally, remakes and remasters such as Shadow of the Colossus, The Last of Us, and Wipeout Omega Collection. Indie hits Celeste, Dead Cells, and Outer Wilds also feature on the list.
The classics list includes the likes of Tekken 2, Ape Escape, and Super Stardust Portable, along with remasters of classics like Jak X: Combat Racing (PS4), Bioshock Remastered, and Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition.
