DEBUNKED: PS4-Exclusive DAYS GONE and PERSONA 5 ROYAL Are Heading to PC According to Amazon France
Mechanic: Bartosz Sobczak
According to Amazon France, two major PlayStation 4–exclusive video games — Days Gone and Persona 5: Royal — are on the way to PC, possibly joining the already announced PC editions of Death Stranding and Horizon: Zero Dawn. Obviously, take Amazon's recent revelations with a healthy grain of salt for now.
Although Amazon France has a long history of spilling information on new, unannounced retail offerings — providing first details on the aforementioned PC port of Horizon: Zero Dawn and Call of Duty: Black Ops II — it's worth remembering that the French website often misses the mark. For example, this particular Amazon division announced in March 2015 that FromSoftware's Bloodborne would be coming to PC.
There's no denying that many players would love to play Days Gone and Persona 5: Royal on PC, and chances are that these rumoured versions of both projects will be released sooner rather than later, as Sony has seemingly changed its modus operandi and is willing to bring even its biggest games to PC.
Considering that Persona 5: Royal still is the best-reviewed game of the year — edging out other critically acclaimed productions like Half-Life: Alyx, Doom: Eternal, and Final Fantasy VII Remake — fans of the jRPG genre should definitely keep an eye on Atlus' opus magnum (and purchase it ASAP if they own the console).
At the time of this writing, Sony had not revealed any plans to bring Days Gone and Persona 5: Royal to PC.
UPDATE #1: Amazon France has just posted new PC listings for Gran Turismo Sport, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, and The Last Of Us Part II. We'll keep you updated as the situation continues to develop.
UPDATE #2: Sega told PC Gamer the following regarding the PC port of Persona 5: Royal: "That listing is an error and we’re looking into having it taken down and how it happened." You hate to see it.
UPDATE #3: Apparently, all these recent listings were posted by "Xbox trolls." It was fun while it lasted.
UPDATE #4: Finally, it's over. According to Sony (via IGN), "The listings are not accurate. We have made no announcements to bring these games to PC."
