Its gonna affect them immediately with millions of lost sales. But the ripple effect afterwards is whats really gonna affect them. I for one would not recommend the PS5 and help out in building a PC + setting up within my friends circle. They will also loss all prestige that comes with exclusives for their consoles.
The average console buyer is a more casual player that buys the big third party franchises (just look at the best selling Ps4 games it's rockstar stuff, COD and sports games) that's not going to go build a $1000+ PC just because some Sony exclusives are releasing years later on PC.
Also 3 years is a long time. There's still tons of people buying games day 1 for $60 even though most of them are like $40 a month or two later. Being able to play big hyped releases right now is still going to attract people. The vast majority of people who are super hyped about TLOU2 or Ghosts of Tsushima are going to pick them up on Ps4, they aren't going to build a PC and hope they come to PC in 3 years....maybe.
