Players are now able to link their PlayStation Network and Steam accounts. This is currently possible in Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered via a recent update on Steam. Possibly, other PlayStation games available for PC will also receive the feature very soon. Earlier this year, PlayStation Launcher references were found on the PC version of Marvel’s Spider-Man. This might be indicative of the PlayStation-Steam connectivity as well.
The announcement in the patch notes states confirms the ability to link the two platform accounts. Connecting them will let the users unlock various items in Marvel’s Spider-Man. It also states that by linking the PlayStation Network and Steam accounts, they will get the latest news, updates, and offers from PlayStation Studios games.
Moreover, a PC registration page for PlayStation is also now live. This can be used to connect the Steam and PlayStation Network accounts as well. In order to link them, a PlayStation game available for PC needs to be bought first. During the initial boot-up of the game, players will be asked to sign into their PlayStation Network account.
An FAQ about the benefits of signing in to PlayStation Network on PC states:
”By signing in to PSN on your PC, you are able to access unique bonus content, manage your communication preferences, and receive the latest news, updates, and offers about your game and other upcoming PlayStation Studios games on PC or other PlayStation platforms.”
PlayStation and PC: Stronger than Ever?
It seems that Sony is willing to do a lot to make sure that players enjoy the full PlayStation experience on PC as much as possible. Several PlayStation exclusives have made their way to PC with more coming very soon. Perhaps, they are looking into more features that will integrate other aspects of the PlayStation Network for PC users to experience. We will have to wait and see what they do for now.
