Playstation, numerous exclusives ready to land on Steam


The page dedicated to PlayStation games has appeared on Steam for a few weeks. First published in beta, therefore without logos or descriptions, today it has been updated to include some of the releases of the games made in Sony already on the Valve service but there is obviously more. In addition to the descriptions and the highlighting of Days Gone, the latest ex-exclusive of the Japanese giant, the list of games present shows a very, very high number.

The Information tab (or About, if you use Steam in English) present on the curator page of PlayStation in fact reports 41 titles published or better present in the Valve service database. In reality, games are much less, around 24 hours between official game releases and DLCs, which are additional content. This has led the network to do some speculation about it. Obviously including the possibility of seeing some exclusive games from the now “old gen” of Sony coming to PC but not yet announced.

Obviously, players' hypotheses are wasted. Many are convinced that those 41 games listed obviously hiding PlayStation exclusives. A few examples? Among the most popular titles for the arrival on PC, many are pressing on Bloodborne, which ran at 30 frames per second on native hardware, a significant obstacle considering the nature of the game. Others point the finger instead to the franchises of The Last of Us and Uncharted. A little hope for Dreams too? The editor nature would make him feel very comfortable with a mouse and keyboard.

Finally, there remains the possibility of error. Obviously, it is not excluded that that "41" is not basically a simple typo. Obviously difficult but at the moment it is necessary to evaluate any type of hypothesis. However, PlayStation has changed its approach to the world of gaming and in the future other exclusives, as already stated by the new Sony management. So we just have to wait for any official announcements on the matter, which we will report to you as soon as they are available.

The DualSense (PC compatible) is also coming in a black version: book it on Amazon!

Are PlayStation Plus Prices Increasing?

Is the price of PlayStation Plus on PS4 and PS5 about to increase? The price of the subscription service has remained steady throughout the PS4 generation, but it looks Sony could increase the price on PS5, which may explain why the quality of free games every month has dramatically increased in 2021. Speculation of a price increase across the board comes after Brazil raised the price of the subscription service by 33 percent. Sony claims this change is to reflect the current market situation in the region, and thus it's likely not indicative of a wider-scale price increase. Despite this, some PlayStation fans are worried 12-month subscription may soon cost more than $60 (though it is significantly cheaper on eBay).

The prices of PlayStation Plus do fluctuate in some parts of the world somewhat regularly. In the United States and many other countries, the price is fairly steady. Brazil falls into the former camp, which means this may be just a regional bump and nothing else, which is usually the case. However, it could also foreshadow a larger hike.

Right now, there's been no word from Sony about the price of PlayStation Plus increasing in other regions, and given the response to Microsoft's recent price hike to Xbox Live Gold -- which they had to revert and apologize for -- it's hard to imagine Sony increasing the price across the board. Yet, it did just increase the price of its AAA games from $60 to $70. Meanwhile, the quality of the free PlayStation Plus games has increased this year, which isn't just random. Sony is spending more for better games each month, and it wouldn't be very surprising if it passed these costs off onto consumers.

For now, take all of this speculation with a grain of salt. Not only is this the second raise in two years, but Brazil's currency has been losing value. This context suggests this is just an isolated price increase, but for now, we will just have to wait and see.
