Spider-Man Remastered, which was released for the PC last week, was loved by the fans and also appeared in front of curious players. Some references in the game files indicate that PSN accounts can also be used for the PC platform in the coming period.
VGCAccording to information shared by Sony, Sony plans to allow PC players to link their PlayStation Network accounts to certain games. Players who do this can be given some in-game rewards. Although no PlayStation Studios PC game yet allows linking to PSN accounts , some details were found in Spider-Man’s files.
Sony may soon integrate PSN accounts into games on PC
The names of some files in the Spider-Man Remastered PC version point to a new feature that Sony may introduce soon. Some references, such as “PSNAccountLinked” and “PSNLinkingEntitlements”, were discovered by gamers tinkering with game files. In addition, there are references such as “LevelCapExtras” for the rewards that will be given after the PSN account is connected. Developer Insomniac looks set to give rewards to players who link their accounts in the future.
As you know, a separate page for PC games was opened on PlayStation’s official website. If we look at the strategy that Sony has been following lately, this PSN account linking situation may be made official the day after tomorrow. However, it is not yet clear whether it will be in all PS games coming to PC.
On the other hand, we see that this situation is already implemented in the rival company Xbox. The Steam page of games like Forza Horizon 5, Sea of Thieves states “Requires a third-party account: Xbox Live”. We may soon see a PlayStation version of it as well. Although they are not console manufacturers, companies such as Ubisoft and EA are already using similar applications. This situation, which is quite common on the PC platform, can also occur in PlayStation Studios games.
