Sony may soon launch its own PlayStation computer gaming platform
According to a report by foreign media Video Game breaking latest news, after analyzing the computer version of “Marvel Spider-Man Remake”, it was found that the words “PlaySation PC Launcher” (PlayStation PC Launcher) appeared in it, which means that such a platform may be in the Sony’s future plans.
