PlayStation PC Launcher Referenced in Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered for PC

PlayStation PC Launcher Referenced in Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered for PC - News

Sony might be looking to release its own launch for its PC games. A mention for a "PlayStation PC launcher" was discovered in the files of the recently released PC version of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered.

The files in question that mention the "PlayStation PC launcher" have been verified by VideoGamesChronicle.

Sony would not be the first video game company to release its own launcher as Ubisoft, Rockstar and Activision Blizzard have their own dedicated launcher for PC.

As of right now no PlayStation game released on PC has connectivity with the PlayStation Network, however, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered files do mention PSNAccountLinked" and "PSNLinkingEntitlements" multiple times.

As of right now, PlayStation games released on PC have been released on Steam and the Epic Games Store.

Sony Interactive Entertainment did recently launch a section on the official PlayStation website dedicated to "PlayStation games for PC." The new page has a section focused on PlayStation games that are now available on PC, one for PlayStation games coming soon to PC, and an FAQ.

The PlayStation games out now for PC include God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone, Predator Hunting Grounds, and Helldivers. The PlayStation games coming soon to PC include Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection.

Oh god, if Sony does make a launcher, I hope they don't require the launcher to be installed and running the way Rockstar Launcher, Ubisoft Connect, and Origin do.

I like the system Microsoft has in place. You just launch your game from within Steam and once in the game, login to your Microsoft account, and that's it. All Steam achievements you unlock also unlocks the corresponding Xbox achievements. So if you have an Xbox or one day get an Xbox, all your achievements are already unlocked and you don't need to start from scratch.

If Sony has a similar system in place, I'll be all over it! As well as double dip for the Spider-Man games since I got Platinum for both titles on my PS5 literally a few weeks before they were announced for PC haha

oh no, don't become another R/2k and demand a launcher to launch a game on another client, just don't bother with doing that...

I stopped buying 2k/R
games, as well as ubisoft titles because of this. I don't want another hoop to jump through just to play a game on an already existing client.

MS system works fine, because I only needed an account which auto signs in for online play, that's basically all any publisher should want, not a launcher required to be installed on one's PC, just to launch a game they already paid for on another client.
