PlayStation Games on PC: Are They Worth It?

Sony has released exclusive PlayStation titles on PC through platforms such as Steam and GOG.com. Games like Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War and Days Gone did well, while Spider-Man and Uncharted were less successful. Although Sony previously indicated that the games performed well, figures have now been leaked showing sales figures on Steam.

Horizon Zero Dawn sold 3.3 million copies on Steam, followed by God of War with 2.5 million and Days Gone with 1.7 million. Days Gone, which was not very noticeable on console, did surprisingly well on PC, possibly due to a good PC implementation. Marvel’s Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Miles Morales fared less well, which can partly be attributed to their recent release compared to the other games. Sackboy, a platform game, sold 65,000 copies.

According to data from Steam Spy, here are estimated sales figures:

  • Horizon: 1,000,000 – 2,000,000
  • God Of War: 2,000,000 – 5,000,000
  • Days Gone: 1,000,000 – 2,000,000
  • Spider-Man: 2,000,000 – 5,000,000
  • Uncharted: 200,000 – 500,000
  • Miles Morales: 200,000 – 500,000
  • Sackboy: 20,000 – 50,000

It is notable that The Last of Us Part 1 does not appear in the figures. It has been available on Steam since March 28. Sony is also planning PC releases for God of War: Ragnarok and Horizon: Forbidden West. In the first two years, Sony estimated $250 million in revenue from its PC variants. While this is impressive, it remains unclear how much it costs to port games to PC and how profitable this is for the company.
