Bro I went out during Covid. Not sure wtf you're talking about.
I don't give two shits about the PC platform. Sony focusing on it does nothing but devalue their brand.
Sony adding more focus to PC increases the value of the brand. More gamers get to experience their games.
If that were the case Xbox would be more valuable then Playstation and Nintendo and the fact is they aren't.
Releasing games on PC will do nothing but tank the brand and cause people to seperate from their eco system. Why buy a Playstation if I can just get a PC and play both Xbox and Playstation games? That mindset will destroy the brand. If people move to PC the 30% revenue cut Playstation gets from third parties will go away because once people move to PC they are going to use Steam for all third party titles. That means less money for Sony to invest into big budget games.
Not only that but the focus on multiplatfirm development means more GAAS which is already an oversatursted market where 95% or the games are trash.
Xbox isn't more valuable because PS is pumping out AAA exclusive games that people want, Xbox has not.
Doesn't matter the device it's on. What matters is that the PlayStation game is available to more people to play. That makes PlayStation more valuable.
There are hundreds of millions of people that want nothing to do with PC and will always buy consoles. No threat there.
PC makes PS brand more valuable. More valuable to the consumer most importantly, but more valuable to Sony as well.
Yes and that's why people buy Playstations. Most people have one primary game platform. The exclusives is why people invest in Playstation over Xbox as 90% of the game library is identical. It's not a coincidence that the last MS console that was competitive was the 360. It was competitive because it had quality exclusives.
You are just looking at it from a publishers perspective. If that were the case why isn't Activision worth more then Playstation? Because Playstation has a successful ecosystem. Releasing games on another platform will cause others to leave that eco system.
That's simply not true especially with the younger generation. They are obsessed with social media and streaming so the PC is already a tempting alternative.
Sony is on the path to be nothing more then a publisher which is a major step down from what they are now. The sooner we get someone that realizes that the better.
