The genesis of the fight was a recent statement by PlayStation Studios head Hermen Hulst, who confirmed that Sony intends to continue dragging its PC ports despite the success of Horizon Zero Dawn, Death Stranding, and Days Gone on PC. Even prior to Hulst’s comments, the wait for ports has frustrated PC players who can’t justify purchasing a PS4 or PS5 but still want to play select PlayStation games, a critically acclaimed library that also includes Bloodborne, God of War, and The Last of Us. Exclusives have been helpful to Sony as a way of persuading gamers to spend several hundred dollars on a console.
The head of Microsoft’s Xbox division, Phil Spencer, used a recent marketing interview to call out PlayStation for its slow PC game release strategy, with PlayStation-exclusive PC ports taking years to reach Steam and Epic Games Store. Spencer used the attack as an opportunity to remind PC customers that there’s no delay on cross-platform titles from Xbox Game Studios, which are regularly included in Xbox Game Pass for consoles and PC at launch.
