The recent release of PlayStation’s God of War for the PC has been nothing short of amazing. Ever since the game was released onto the PC, the game has been literally flying off of the digital shelves.
While God of War was only released on January 14, 2022, that didn’t stop the game from dominating Steam. So far, the game has managed to dethrone every game on Steam over the weekend, thanks to some impressive numbers. According to SteamDB, God of War was able to hit 73, 529 players as of January 16, 2022.
Needless to say that God of War on PC has outpaced the sales of both Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone. Both of which were PlayStation 4 titles that were ported over to the PC over the past two years. It’s also the most impressive port so far, all thanks to the efforts of Jetpack Interactive and Santa Monica Studio. We’ve seen some lackluster console ports that have made their way over to the PC over the last few years. Nier: Automata, Detroit Become Human, Forza Motorsport 7, and more recently Final Fantasy VII Remake. Seeing God of War being as good as it is, was a welcomed change of pace. More importantly, all this goes to show that there are those who game on PC and will drop the cash for a quality console port.
Hopefully, this sends a signal to PlayStation that the PC is a viable platform to port its titles to. Now that there’s a PlayStation PC label (replacing the PlayStation Mobile label), perhaps we’ll see more PlayStation titles make their way to the PC. I’m not saying we’ll see 1:1 PlayStation releases onto the PC, but perhaps we’ll see closer timed releases in the future. Well, outside of the upcoming Uncharted Legacy Of Thieves Collection that bundles Uncharted 4 and Uncharted Lost Legacy, complete with several enhancements. Perhaps we’ll finally see that rumored Bloodborne PC port that the entire internet keeps talking about that hasn’t materialized yet.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I got to get back to Dad of War God of War.
