Sony: Notice of PC versions of God of War, Gran Turismo 7, and more


Will some former PlayStation exclusive games also appear on PC in the foreseeable future? After all, Sony had already confirmed several times that it wanted to bring more first-party games to the PC. Days Gone, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Uncharted 4 and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy have already been released or at least have been confirmed for the PC, as well as Death Stranding and Detroit: Become Human and Co. from Quantic Dreams, which have at least been published by Sony on Playstation.

At least the latest find by the developer Ighor July in the database of the streaming service GeForce Now suggests that there are more ports. In a recent blog post, July first explained how he could get the data at all and shortly afterwards presented some of his results. These have been summarized again in an overview at and have some interesting insights to offer.

Accordingly, the find consists of a mixture of games already available at GeForce Now, discontinued projects and some not previously announced for the PC Title. The latter are particularly interesting. Among other things, there is talk of the action game God of War and the racing game Gran Turismo 7.

No PC version of any of these games has yet been announced. However, the find in the GeForce database could be interpreted as an indication that this could happen in the foreseeable future. A statement or even confirmation from Sony to these findings is pending. Nevertheless, these notes should provide a lot of discussion material.

Remaster versions of GTA 3, GTA: San Andreas and GTA: Vice City, about which there have been various rumors for some time, were in the database of the Find streaming service. Another eye-catcher is a remastered version of the first-person shooter Half-Life 2. The full list of games found in the database can be found at

Sony will finally unlock the PS5's SSD slot for everyone tomorrow

After beta testing the second major PlayStation 5 firmware update over the past few weeks, Sony is ready to roll it out to everyone, along with new versions of the PS4 system software and the PlayStation mobile apps. The PS5 patch is the big one since, 10 months after Sony released the console, the company is finally unlocking the internal storage expansion slot for everyone.

Although you can store games on an external hard drive, you can't run PS5 titles from USB storage. Those drives are just too slow for PS5 games. Plug in a compatible M.2 solid state drive, though, and you can use it just like the system's internal storage for PS5 games, PS4 titles and media apps. You can move games and apps between the internal storage and M.2 SSD as you wish.

However, it's important to note that not any M.2 drive will do. You'll either need one with a built-in cooling structure or to add your own heatsink. Sony has several other requirements. We've put together a guide detailing the best SSDs you can buy for your PS5.

The update adds some other handy features, including 3D audio support for built-in TV speakers, which you can activate through the sound menu. You'll be able to use the DualSense controller's microphone to measure the acoustics and help decide the best setting for your space. There will be equalizer settings for the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset too.

Some key user interface changes are on the way as part of tomorrow's update too. It should be easier to tell whether a game you have installed is the PS4 or PS5 version. Each will be listed separately in the Installed tab on the Home screen and in the Game Library. 

You'll have additional customization options for the Control Center, including more choice over which controls to include in the bar at the bottom of your screen. You can move those around, so you can place the power menu on the left, if you like. You'll also be able to see and send messages to friends and parties from the Control Center's Game Base section.

On the accessibility front, there are new screen reader shortcuts. Press the PlayStation and triangle buttons to turn the feature on or off, and press the PS and R1 buttons to have the tool repeat the last thing it said. PlayStation Now members can select a resolution of 720p or 1080p depending on the game, and there's a tool to test your connection and hopefully help you resolve any issues.

The console will also be able to automatically record clips of your 'personal best' moments, such as hitting a better time or score when you compete in challenges. You can access those clips from the Media Gallery or the challenge card in the Control Center. In addition, there's a new trophy tracker that lets you view progress on up to five trophies per game in the Control Center.

That's not all, though, as Sony will release a PS4 update tomorrow. You'll be able to see your PS5 trophies (as well as others' PS5 accolades) on PS4. On both consoles, you'll be able to disband a Party without removing people individually if you're the Party owner.

On top of that, there are updates coming to the PlayStation mobile apps. Starting tomorrow, you'll at last be able to stream PS4 and PS5 games to your iOS or Android device over mobile networks, a feature that definitely would have come in handy for visits to the park during the summer. You can adjust video quality options to help manage your data.

Meanwhile, as of September 23rd, you'll be able to watch your friends' PS5 Share Screen broadcasts through the PS App. It may take up to a week for the feature to become available through the Android version of the app, as Sony is rolling it out gradually on that platform.
