I would support this if they allow mods if not its pointless.
Not aimed at you specifically Husky GT, but for the attitude of many PC gamers. I love how for some people cost isn't that much of a problem, fastest GPU, £50 controller! Pah, nothing. Good luck to them.Thank you! Yes, I wish people would look more into PC's. The benefits heavily outweigh their negatives, which aren't really many, other than they can cost a lot of money and the infinitely intimidating selection of parts, if you are still not too familiar with the PC market.
The thought of PD allowing mods on a GT game!I would support this if they allow mods if not its pointless.
I'm not sure I could see Kaz being enthusiastic about someone's underpowered 5+ year old PC chugging away to barely play a game and looking awful. Cutting edge graphics are a nice thing, but only for a very small niche number of users, and how much would the top graphics card be compared to the whole console! 2x, 3x! And that is not counting the rest of the computer's cost.I'm thinking of Polyphony Digital also & imagine how far they could push their graphics on a PC.
Not sure I fully agree with moving console first party titles over to the PC as well but I do see both sides of the coin.
There is no denying that PC gaming seems to be on the "up" compared to consoles as the moment since Sega also recently reported good sales for PC titles so I imagine if they are willing to learn the PC platform skills and develop the game for PC PD would release on the format.
That said some people will be triggered at the prospect of Gran Turismo being something other than a PS4 exclusive game, I don't have any problem with this aspect but I would never consider a PC for gaming again as I lack the knowledge and experience there of running games well.
As long as releasing on PC does not mean going down the route of PC only it seems a good way for Sony to increase it's overall results.
Remember it, Sony. PlayStation has saved your life. Any mistake you ever make, perhaps you will be history in near future, just like other Japanese manufacturers.
I'm afraid PS5 will be the Sony's Dreamcast lolIf I remember correctly it was reported on this website that Sony may not make another PlayStation.
If that is true, then this is the first step.
Really, it doesn't surprise me. However, I buy consoles so that the chance of having to upgrade JUST to play a new version of a game is lessened.
I'm not really happy either way.
But I would LOVE to see what can be done with a PC game!
How do you answer a question with a question, one that even makes little sense in response to it.What is?
Xbox is still alive and kicking extremely well even with their exclusives have already been on PC. The Xbox One wasn't their last generation and nor will the PS5 be Sony's if they do decide to bring in more audience. If anything, it'll help fund future development for their future endeavors.I mean PS5 will be the last console Sony produced if the decision to not making their game console-exclusive anymore backfires on them and turns them to multiplatform dev like Sega. But we'll see then
It'll never happen as Sony won't be able to control the modding community which makes sim racing far more enjoyable on PC than console.
Is not like the PS3 stopped that from happening back in the day.
Plenty of security on the PC environment to avoid it. This kind of thing rarely slips by in most high profile titles. Some games will insta-Vac Ban you if you even have a mildly suspicious program running in the background, let alone modding the game to give you an advantage online.
The landscape has changed a lot over the last 20 years or so, and I feel consoles are becoming less relevant. I remember not wanting to keep up with PC tech when SLI Voodoo Graphics cost more money than I was willing to pay, and the Playstation was so much cheaper than you could possibly build a gaming PC for. But consoles have become quite similar to PCs, and it's hard to create that much of a pricing difference. If you combine the price of a PS5 with the price of PS+ over its lifespan, there's not a huge saving over a PC with similar performance, and the PC lets you play PC-only games. With all Xbox games now coming out on PC, I'm sure I'm not the only one who is considering not owning a PS5 or Xbox Series X, having owned all previous Playstations.
So, if I stick with my gaming PC, and can play all PC and Xbox Series X games, GT is the only PS5 game that would interest me. The cost of playing that one game would be the cost of the game plus PS+ plus PS5. That is a heck of a lot of money to pay to play one game. The question is how many people will be in the same position and would be massively more likely to buy the game if they release it for PC.
I'm not sure how the business model works for Sony, though, if they have no more console exclusives. Console hardware is typically sold with little profit, and the profit is made from game licencing fees. MS doesn't mind trading off console sales against PC sales because they make money from selling Windows. But if Sony gives up a console sale by letting someone run their games on PC, they lose the licencing fees for every game that person would have bought on console if they'd pushed them into buying a console. So it's a balancing act, greater income from game sales vs lower income from licencing fees.
That was because Xbox and Windows are Microsoft's own turfs, ergo, they have control of the platforms (especially with Forza on Windows Store).Xbox is still alive and kicking extremely well even with their exclusives have already been on PC. The Xbox One wasn't their last generation and nor will the PS5 be Sony's if they do decide to bring in more audience. If anything, it'll help fund future development for their future endeavors.
