An opportunity to bring great games to a larger audience
GQ asks Ryan the reason why PlayStation has now decided to adapt some of its video games to PC when it is something they decided not to do for a long time. The CEO of PlayStation comments that things have changed and that, particularly during the second part of the PS4 life cycle, studios began to make very good and accurate games. “There is a chance to bring great games to a larger audience and benefit the development economy of games that is not always simple. The cost of making games increases with each cycle as the caliber of IPs has improved. It has also increased the ease of making it available to those who do not have a console, so it is a fairly simple decision for us.“, comment Ryan.
The CEO also talks about how they evaluated the results of Horizon Zero Dawn two ways, seeing how this release appealed to PC gamers and also checking that the PlayStation community hadn’t had a “massive adverse reaction so we will continue to take steps in the same direction. “
