Well, there it is:

ReadySetHeroes has always been multiplatform though. It was never PS4 only. The original blog post stated as much when it was announced.

And I didn't know about this game before this thread.

This game was timed exclusive. And from what I saw it isn't even a Sony dev anyway.

Which makes sense, given people aren't buying a ps4 for Journey and Flower.  Might as well make some money by offering said games to Switch owners.  

They will go as far as PC. They aren't going to prop up their competition. 

Journey and Flower are also available for a billion iOS 12 devices.

There ain't much "exclusivity" left, so why not also port them to the Switch?

And it isn't even developed by a Sony studio.

Journey and Flower weren't published by them on IOS/PC, it doesn't look like they had much to do with the ports at all, except perhaps allowing their existence (don't know who owns what).

Of course sony have published and made games for PC themselves in the past.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

Considering Sony owned the IPs even for games of their most trusted partner (Insomniac) I would bet Flower and Journey are Sony owned IP, so they get a cut of the port even if they don't publish them.

I heard the same thing about Ori to the Switch.  Stranger things have happened.  Who knows for sure.  

Sure, anything is possible of course

Sony has been porting (or allowing) to PC/ iOS for a good few years now.

Phones and PC aren't really as direct a competitor as say the Xbox or Switch. You never know, but the first step, as I see it, is more PC embracing (and not with their AAA exclusives either I think).



I'm not sure this means much, after all years ago Sony said that they'd make mobile games and where are those? They also said they'd make collectibles that are somewhat the equivalent of Nintendo's Amiibos and I don't see them anywhere.

I don't think exclusive games will die any time soon.



I think PC is a more direct competitor with the ps4 than the Switch is.
