We all know that the PC gaming market is a little oasis in the middle of the battle between Sony and Microsoft over consoles, where things haven’t been so favorable. For example, in prices, since novelties have already risen to 80 euros The cost—in the normal versions—thanks to the advent of the new generation of machines, both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X|S.
Is exclusive on PC, a problem?
A few years now, Sony has embarked on a big opening plan, making many of its exclusive games on PlayStation available on PC but, of course, making its way into that area. have had to adopt the usages and customs of gamer computer on demand. And that includes paying some slightly inflated prices for novelty.
For Sony, there has to be a bit of a fling because in one store it is offering the same game at the standard PS5 price, in another it is cut by 10, 20, or more euros. The margins are indeed very tight in Spain and there doesn’t seem to be much to travel To upload them unilaterally, outside of the trend that Steam set somehow, but that may change in the coming months.
There are signs that Sony wants its exclusive games to sell a bit more on PC, and we saw it just a few days ago when The Japanese announced a massive increase in some areas of Spanish-speaking countries such as Mexico, Argentina, Chile or Colombia, but also in China, Canada, Japan, and South Korea. In the case of Argentina, the increase has gone from 5,999 pesos (about 25 euros) to 9,999 (40 euros), a significant jump.
Will it touch us in Spain too?
In this case, we find ourselves in the same situation as in other situations in which a company begins to move through certain sectors and As the months pass, it replicates similar measures in Spain. Of course, at the moment the price of exclusives in our country is quite adjusted and aligned with the Steam mark, which is the reference store, but this can change quickly.
So the best thing to do is “soak our beards” and, if you’re interested in getting any of the Sony exclusives for PC, do it. from the fact For the lowest offer ,you can see in the Valve store. it’s not that the interval we think about it The price goes up a few euros and it starts to sound interesting to us.
In any case, Sony should be warned that no matter how strong its exclusives on PlayStation are and the absolute power it has in its ecosystem, Certainly the PC market is not so tame And players may rebel against a measure that doesn’t seem to be on the table, or in the minds of those running the main sales platform, at least in the compatible market.
