PlayStation exclusives coming to the PC?

Each gaming platform has its own exclusives, which causes a lot of fragmentation in the gaming market. While there's no doubt about the PC being the Gaming Master Race, it can't be denied that consoles like the PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo's portfolio have various games that are quite a lot of fun.

As such, we were quite surprised to read comments from Sony Interactive Entertainment boss Shawn Layden that first-party PlayStation titles may soon launch on the PC:
The news comes from Business Insider’s Christopher Palmeri who reported that Layden, in an interview, said:

We must support the PlayStation platform — that is nonnegotiable. That said, you will see in the future some titles coming out of my collection of studios which may need to lean into a wider installed base.

This, of course, doesn’t indicate that the company’s gone all-in on the PC platform (nor is it any kind of official announcement – take it with a grain of salt or two). But it’s probably the clearest sign yet that the company’s continuing to reconsider its begrudging support for cross-platform play in a major way. And it’s likely we have the success of multiplayer titles like Fortnite to thank.
