Following Sony’s success in porting PlayStation exclusives to PC, there was excitement at the PlayStation Showcase for another PC port announcement. Speculation has included Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Ghost of Tsushima. It is surprising that Sony didn’t reveal any of them. After the commercial success of Returnal and The Last of Us Part 1, it makes sense to expect more PC versions.
A week later, a casual tweet from the PlayStation Twitter account revealed that Rift Apart would indeed be coming to PC on 26 July. The rejection of PC ports by PlayStation fans may be the reason why this information was not shared at the event.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart comes to PC July 26, as Nixxes Software collaborates with Insomniac Games to bring the interdimensional adventure to ultrawide screen monitors everywhere.

Will Sony Stop Making PlayStation?
It’s hard to understand the constant argument about PC ports. We know that many customers wonder what’s the point of having a PS5 if it loses exclusivity after a few years. But agree that we play each game in a different way. Moreover, to play the same game on a PC that offers better graphics and performance, you need to have powerful hardware.

So we guess the PS5 would continue to dominate the market even if titles were released simultaneously on PC. Many gamers prefer consoles’ reliability and simplicity to PCs’ technological advantages.
Maybe some users worry that the popularity of the PC versions will cause Sony to stop making consoles, leaving console-only gamers in the dust. But we don’t think this will ever happen. Sony’s main business is selling hardware and making video games for it. The PC market won’t replace consoles. If consoles were in danger, it would have been when PC components became cheaper. If Sony were to stop making consoles, it would be because of streaming rather than a rapid switch to PCs.
As The Gamer thinks, it’s a matter of a “console war” mentality. But true fans want more people to experience these games. We understand that some fans want exclusivity. But it’s naïve to force gamers to play games on the hardware you want. You are free to do whatever you want.
