A lot of people seem worried that PS titles coming to the PC might mean the PlayStation consoles will lose their utility. But that might not be the case. In fact, just last month Hermen Hulst, the head of PlayStation Studios, addressed this fear. “I want to emphasize that PlayStation will remain the best place to play our PlayStation Studios titles at launch,” he said. So no. PlayStation gamers sharing some of their exclusives with PC gamers doesn’t mean the PS5 is dead and isn’t worth buying.
