What about millions downloading Epic Launcher just to play Fortnite? People will do it if they really want to. Sony maybe irrelevant but their games aren't.
Because fortnite e-sport = PC.
Twich was for a long time fortnite, which made it massively populaire under PC players.
What is uncharted? what person that only plays on PC even heard of it? how did they ever got in contact with the IP? they don't.
The same way as world of warcraft is nothing on consoles worth. no console gamer gets into contact with it. Releasing a console with blizzard games on it like warcraft as exclusive, will not make any console gamer care. Who?
Yet on PC, for millions of PC gamers TBC is a bigger thing then anything this year releasing in the game market. Why? history. While console gamers talk about the next big sony exclusive, for a PC gamer that sits on blizzard games only, all of those games simple don't exist on there radar and never will unless sony starts to push advertisement for it and release the game on that platform.
A good example also is kingdom hearts series. Massive populaire in the PS2 area. Everybody that had a PS2 probably knows of its existence or a handheld. PC gamers? not really. It was never released on there platform and so nobody knows the name or cares for it as nobody got in contact with it.
They decided to release the entire series on PC a while ago. Yet it sells like absolute dogshit. why? zero history. Zero interest.
What sony needs to do is drop there IP's on PC. it will generate more money for there devs which probably is a thing with prices ballooning, it will create brand recognision after a while and it will result in sales.
