Along with a plethora of other financial details announced in Sony's Business Segment Meeting (including PSVR2 sales, PS Plus figures, and the rate at which major PS5 games will release), we've got the latest numbers for PlayStation Studios PC offerings.
Some familiar faces lead the pack, with Spider-Man Remastered webbing up over 1.5M additional copies, and The Last of Us: Part 1 scrounging up another 368K sales. Perhaps it wasn't for nothing after all.
More, Sony expects this trend to continue into the future (just look at that graph!) and will remain bullish on PC ports (quietly jacking prices in certain places) but has gone on record stating that PS5 remains the priority. It's likely we'll see more PC announcements at the looming PlayStation Showcase, which is now less than 24 hours away...
What do you think of PlayStation Studios' strong showing on PC? Remember to always dance with the one who brought you in the comments section below.
I would like Ghost of Tsushima be announced as that game is excellent on PS5 and would like to on PC so that it expands even more.
Sony need to show the pc gamers more love. In most cases the hard core pc gamer has spent an absurd amount of money on their gaming rigs only to have sub par ports that run better on the ps5 that costs a mere fraction of their rigs. Its almost ironic.
The biggest takeaway from this graph for me is "5 first party PC games feature psn log in"! Does this mean we might be able to earn trophies on pc soon, if so that would be incredible, I'd actually consider double dipping for some of these games sooner if this was the case.
Sony have also said they want to sell parts of their business to raise funds for acquisitions for playstation.
Expect 2 or 3 PC ports per year in the future. Maybe even one per quarter.
I would not expect much hype though. So far they feel they have done very well announcing the ports very close to their launch. Their marketing also seems to be rather minimal, relying almost entirely on Steam for organic navigation.
I don’t expect them to focus much if at all on PC ports during the showcase, unless it’s a dual thing (PC port + PS5 remaster launching on similar windows.)
All most 500k for a broken game is amazing. Imagine if they actually had released it in working order.

Looking forward to more PC port announcements later today. Keep it up Sony!
@GorosBat it mostly mean that Sony can count them as MAU of PlayStation Network
But I fully expect Sony to produce their own launcher in future with all bells and whistles.
Sony needs to prioritize getting their games not just on PC, but optimized for Steam Deck. If Elden Ring can run flawlessly, then there is no excuse for The Last of Us.
