Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered was released on PC last week, and as usually happens with a PC release, fans have been digging through the files. According to VGC, there are specific references in the game’s files for PlayStation Network integration. These file names include PSN mentions like “PSNAccountLinked” and “PSNLinkingEntitlement”.
The latter file title appears to suggest that, if Sony follows through on PSN integration, PC players may be able to receive rewards. VGC also notes that a PSN linking bonus could provide additional skill points in the game.
It wouldn’t be too far-fetched for Sony to implement this PSN integration in future. PlayStation games have been arriving on PC at a decent pace, bringing plenty of new sales for Sony with them. Adding PSN to their PC titles could see gamers being rewarded with trophies for completing achievements (like PC Game Pass has), and could even have something to do with their upcoming PlayStation Stars loyalty program coming later this year.
Further, as reported earlier this month by Nikkei Asia, Sony sees a market in PC gaming that can help it grow beyond the PlayStation hardware series. If Sony is serious about PC, it could follow Xbox’s business model, which has Xbox services – including its Game Pass subscription – integrated into PC.
