Sony Takes Over PC Gaming: Here’s What You Need to Know
Reasons, why Sony gaming is growing, include new games and publishing old titles on the PC platform. Revenue from the ‘Other’ category, including revenue from first-party games outside of consoles and accessories such as PlayStation VR, is four times that in fiscal 2021.
From April 2022 to March 2023, Sony has already released Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered, Sackboy, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Death Returns and the PC version of The Last of Us.

Despite this setback, Sony appears to be on track with its wider goal of bringing more first-party titles to the PC platform. The company stated in its earnings report that it will continue to promote the development of long-term/live/cloud gaming services.
As the games business evolves, it is clear that Sony is committed to broadening its reach and entering new industries. Sony is well positioned to succeed in the years ahead, thanks to a solid financial base and a commitment to delivering compelling gaming experiences. It will be interesting to see what new titles Sony brings to the PC platform in the future.
