Um...Who?

They're essentially a porting studio, have worked with Crystal Dynamics and Eidos (Now Square Enix) since 2000;

Okay.... not bad...not bad.
(atleast the games they worked on looks impressive enough)

We're gonna' be seeing more PlayStation games coming to PC for sure... which is actually a good thing because it then frees up the original developers to work on new things rather than spending time porting the games themselves, lol :P


Bristow to the rescue :)
This makes it fine, if it can free up resources, for other teams, while allowing for PC ports... fine.

This is how it would sound if Nintendo bought Panic Button. Just a porting studio. I expect the big one is Bluepoint. Sony Japan leaked that early.

But Bluepoint would actually excite me.
Those guys are more than just your avg port job studio.
They are more than ready to do their own work imo.



Hopefully this means we will get more PC ports sooner! I owned a ps4 and I own a ps5 but I wouldn't mind double dipping on a number of my favourite games if they come to PC as my monitor is an ultrawide 3440 x 1440p which consoles don't scale to that resolution. So playing all these games at that ultrawide resolution with high frame rate would be fap worthy.

It was only a matter of time before Sony picked up a dedicated studio to port to PC. They got a massive PS4 backlog to get through!



I don't think this means we're getting day and date PS5 exclusive releases on PC anytime soon. In the near future, I can see a few of their multiplayer titles (like Factions) get a day and date release for PC.

I didn't say Bluepoint is a port studio. That was referring to Nixxes. Second part of my post is a different comment altogether how Sony Japan already leaked they bought Bluepoint. 2 different things.

Not all heroes wear capes... I mean, I do, but not all of them do :P



They helped with Killzone Shadowfall, so not necessarily port work.



Good decision, Sony needs more PC experience and this is a step in the right direction for them.

Oof that game was bad. Hopefully they can make something better on their own IP or a better IP to work with.
