Even though Sony has never revealed data regarding PlayStation games that have been remastered for PC, it was recently revealed that these games are selling well on PC.
This information comes from leaked data that spread as a result of the ransomware attack on Insomniac Games. Of the 1TB of data spread around, one of them is the financial report of the game developer who is part of PlayStation Studios.
From one of the presentation slides distributed, it was revealed that the game, which was previously exclusive to PlayStation, also had successful sales when it was re-released on PC.
For example, Horizon Zero Dawn, which was released for PC in August 2020, or three years after it was first released for PlayStation. As of February 2023, the game has sold 3.3 million copies on Steam. That’s quite big for a game that is three years old.
What If All The Games Of PS, Can Be Play In PC ?
Then there is Days Gone which was brought to PC in May 2021 and God of War which was released on PC in January 2022. As of February 2023, the two games have sold 1.7 million copies and 2.5 million copies respectively.
It was also revealed that Spider-Man Remastered almost caught up with Days Gone’s sales in just six months. However, this is certainly not strange, because the Spider-Man game series has sold 33 million copies on PlayStation (and Days Gone only 5.8 million copies).
But of course there are also game series that were not successful when re-released on PC. For example, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Sackboy: A Big Adventure, which sold less than 500 thousand copies. In fact, Sackboy only sold 63 thousand copies.
The weak sales of this series of games can be caused by many factors. For example, some of them are not very well known and the market preference is to wait for the presence of exclusive AAA games. For example, Gran Turismo will probably explode if it is re-released for PC.
