Game files for the PC release of Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man have revealed more evidence that Sony Interactive Entertainment is looking to bring the PlayStation Network to PC. The files are marked “PSNAccountLinked” and “PSNLinkingEntitlements”, hinting that users will be able to link PSN accounts to unlock rewards in PC versions of games.
This comes just days after Sony Interactive Entertainment updated the PlayStation PC page on the official PlayStation website to state that it is currently not possible to earn trophies on PC, transfer progress between console and PC and that a PlayStation account is not required for games.
Sony Interactive Entertainment has long been rumored to be working on a PlayStation launcher, several job listings from the company have mentioned bringing the PlayStation Network beyond consoles. Sony is also hiring a UX Design Manager for PlayStation’s “off-console experience”.
Should Sony Interactive Entertainment release a PC launcher it won’t change its plans with regard to Steam and EGS releases as Kenichiro Yoshida, CEO of Sony Group, specifically mentioned both storefronts in its multiplatform plans. The updated PlayStation PC FAQ section also states that games will be available on a wide range of retailers.
