Sony open to PC versions of PlayStation exclusives

Shawn Layden says some first-party titles "may need to lean into a wider installed base"

Sony may start bringing PlayStation exclusives to other platforms. In an interview with Bloomberg this week, Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios chairman Shawn Layden suggested the company's stance toward its first-party titles may be changing.

"We must support the PlayStation platform -- that is nonnegotiable," Layden said. "That said, you will see in the future some titles coming out of my collection of studios which may need to lean into a wider installed base."

The Bloomberg article's context suggest Layden was referring not to PlayStation games appearing on Nintendo or Microsoft consoles, but to PC versions of multiplayer titles designed with that platform in mind.
