Jason Schreier: Sony's Horizon coming to PC later this year

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Jason Schreier: Sony's Horizon coming to PC later this year

I like it.
But curious if they'll continue doing it this way. As in waiting several years before porting it to another system, rather than developing it for additional systems from the start. And then maybe releasing it a year later.

I bet this will be the norm if it's success . But for now probably games that coming to PC will just PSNow games and old games .

Well it seems it may be more expensive to do it this way. But on the other hand it makes it easier for them to focus on just one version during initial development, which can be cheaper and faster if you look at it that way.

They're somewhat trepidatious. And as the console market leader, they should be. It's a smart play for now. How they position themselves in the future will be determined by their relative success in the console market going forward.

Yeah for sure porting games will be expensive especially when another studios do the work.  But i guess for now they are just testing the water. And PS4 already has compatibility with DirectX. But i hope  they keep focusing on one platform and then ported to PC. So the games will look and play better for both Console and PC unlike games that developed for multi platform mostly the quality are bad.  



Consoles really are now pointless. Rigs can do everything, no point in have multiples.

PS4 doesn't need DirectX. Detroit Become Human on PC runs on Vulkan, so does RDR2.

Yeah  i mean PS4 are build based X86. It's compatible either with Vulcan, Linux, or directX or every X86 program and engine.

If you have a good PC no need to buy consoles, but if you already has consoles you don't need to buy gaming PC if satisfied with the limited quality. The future will not about console agnostic but about ecosystem
