In an interview with Famitsu (via PushSquare), Jim Ryan has confirmed that more PC ports of PlayStation games are on the way, following the likes of Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone. Indeed, it very much appears that this PC initiative is only just beginning for Sony.

"We plan to further develop our game development capabilities and develop more exclusive titles for PlayStation owners to enjoy, and the results in the coming years. We are also happy with our efforts to provide our IP to PCs, although it is still in its infancy, and we look forward to working with Nixxes to help with that."

Ryan specifically confirms that Nixxes — a Dutch support studio that formerly worked on Tomb Raider and Marvel's Avengers PC versions for Square Enix — is going to be focussed on one thing: PC porting. In particular, the use of "infancy" in relation to getting more PlayStation IP suggests that we are only at the start of whatever Ryan and Sony have planned in the space.

We know that Sony earns huge profits from the games that it does put there and that Uncharted 4 might be the next game on the agenda. Do you want more PC ports? How do you feel about seeing PlayStation IPs on the new platform? Let us know what you think of the new strategy in the comments!

I want Burnout back — I really miss crunching mechanical wonders into walls to the sound of Guns N' Roses. Cool, now we are acquainted, I'll see you around.
