A small and unexpected note in the picture from the official trailer of Sony May indicate that Demon's Souls may finally end its exclusivity on company consoles
Microsoft has already understood this in the current generation, will Sony follow a similar path in the new generation? For quite a few years we have experienced a real war in the gaming world, between PCs and Consoles The game salons which have been perceived by many creators and developers as much more lucrative and relevant systems.
The hardware of the consoles was substantially different from the hardware of thePC In those times, many great titles were left exclusive to consoles, exclusive to a single console or ones that eventually came to computers too late and amateurish conversion which greatly impaired the gaming experience. Many things have changed for the better since then, and today the consoles of Sony and Microsoft are more similar than ever to computers in their hardware aspect, while the marketPC Considered a growing and flourishing front for gaming with no feelings of inferiority.
In this new situation, PCs are no longer seen as a competition that steals from the success of games on consoles but as a large-scale market that justifies its own investment to significantly improve the chances of commercial success. Microsoft announced more than a year ago that the computer world will become part of the brand's position Xbox And will receive equal treatment to that of Consoles The game salons from the company with all the services and games, without artificial separations of exclusivity designed to promote the sales of console devices only as we have seen quite a few times before.
Sony, however, has continued its efforts to develop exclusive titles for Consoles God-Playstation Only, without PC versions, as part of an approach whereby successful and coveted games spur more serious sales than anything else - while we, as those who advocate optimal competition with no unnecessary restrictions for consumers, continue to keep our fingers crossed for a day when the Japanese giant will also surrender, change direction and understand that With the right approach players in the fieldPC Will be able to help her and promote her success and not the other way around.
Now, we come to the remake in question for the game Demon's Souls, which formed the basis for the great success of the Dark Souls series as an exclusive title for thePlaystation 3 and rebuilt for Technology Much more modern and advanced to excite the new generation of players who have heard of it but have not experienced it themselves originally. The new title holds an average of 91 out of 100 excellent reviews on the Metacritic website and is the most appreciated product in the first launch wave of the new console generation in fact, by no small margin from the other contestants - and although it will be exclusive to PS5 just like the original game, surfers note Small in an official commercial video stating that it will actually be available on PCs as well.
The surprise announcement states that Demon's Souls in the remake version is not temporarily available on other consoles, but is available on PC - this despite the fact that we have not heard any reference to the program to make such a launch. Is this an error or a reference to the availability of the servicePlaystation Now on PCs, and not a statement about a "real" official launch? It's hard to know, but we'll keep our fingers crossed that this is actually an early exposure of the plans for the rest of the way, after the initial buzz around thePlaystation 5 will begin to dissipate.
It is worth noting that Demon's Souls is developed by the Japanese company From Software, which is not owned by Sony's gaming division, with quite a few of its latest hits being launched for both PCs and Sony's and consoles. Microsoft Office At the same time - but the original Demon's Souls was and remains exclusive to the PS3 while in the era of thePS4 It was the Bloodborne game that gained exclusivity and was not launched for any other platform, so to assume that the current remake will be exclusive as well is not a completely detached exaggeration from the situation on the ground.
On the one hand we have Horizon: Zero Dawn which found its way into PCs even though it was created by a studio owned by Sony, and on the other hand we have Bloodborne which was created by a studio that does not belong to Sony and even launches other titles on various platforms - but it remains exclusive To-Playstation 4 and L-Playstation 5 to date. It is quite difficult to find clear legitimacy in these decisions, but we strive to continue to maintain cautious optimism for the future
We'll keep our fingers crossed that Demon's Souls Remake will find its way into the PC landscape as well as even the consolesXbox Series S / X in a way that allows the maximum number of players to enjoy it in their preferred method - and we will continue to keep our fingers crossed that Sony will also decide to offer the titles they develop internally and independently to the computer people, perhaps after a cooling period of a few months from launch. Earn properly from all worlds.
What do you think - do Sony On the way to a fundamental change of attitude or are the exclusive games not going to disappear anywhere any time soon? Let's comment and sex.
