PS5 exclusives are set to come to PC

Ever since its release back in November 2020, many gamers have been unable to purchase the new PlayStation 5, missing out on exclusive titles such as Returnal.

The good news is, we could start seeing more PlayStation exclusives head to PC, giving players more options on how they play the game.

PS5 Exclusives Coming To PC

Epic Games and Apple are currently going head to head in the courtroom over Apple charging a 30% sales tax on all transactions made through its App Store.

30% has long been the industry standard, with Google, Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, Valve, and many others all taking similar cuts.

Microsoft recently revealed that they will be lowering its sale tax to 12% for all puchases made on PC from the Windows Store.

Epic Games also has a 12% sales tax rate on its Epic Games Store, drastically lower than their competition.

In the document it was revealed that Epic Games is prepared to pay $200 million for exclusity for 4-6 titles.

This is alsothe same amount that Sony recently invested into Epic Games.

Over the last year or so we have seen PS4 exclusives such as Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone, and Death Stranding have all come to PC via Steam, meaning a deal like this wouldn't be out of the realm of possibilty.

Epic Games has also considered working with Microsoft and Nintendo, but admit these are unlikely as Microsoft has its Game Pass for PC where all of their first-party titles will be released on day one, as well as their ongoing relationship with Valve.

And they called a deal with Nintendo a non-starter, meaning there appears to be very little chance we will see Nintendo games come to PC, but this isn't surprising as no first-party Nintendo game has ever officially been revealed.
