PlayStation PC launcher references found, platform may be in the works by Sony


As most PC gamers know, Sony has been importing some of its exclusive triple-A video game hits to Steam and Epic Games Store. This includes the latest Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered but Sony may be planning something big. Recently, VGC just discovered that there are some codes inside the game referencing a PlayStation (PS) PC launcher.

Inside the files, sources say that there are some references to “PSNAccountLinked” and “PSNLinkingEntitlements”. Every PS gamers know that you would need to access your PlayStation Network (PSN) account to play your games, so these two codes are suggesting that the PS Store may finally come to PC as a cross-platform.

We are speculating but gamers may need to launch the PS PC launcher if they launch the existing PS games from Steam or Epic Games. This is the same case with Rockstar, Ubisoft Connect and EA Origins whenever we want to play an exclusive game from a certain publisher.

Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan has expressed interest in planning to export "a whole slate" of games to the PC platform. So far, God of War, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, Death Stranding: Director's Cut, Days Gone and Horizon: Zero Dawn (Complete Edition) have made their way to Steam and Epic Games Store. Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered would be the sixth PC entry.
