PlayStation Trophies May Soon Make Their Way to PC Gaming
Sony's Expanding PlayStation PC Label Hints at Cross-Platform Trophies
The most recent piece of the puzzle involves the introduction of PlayStation Trophies to PC gaming. This revelation emerged from TrueTrophies, a third-party tracker, which uncovered data alluding to a new platform called “PSPC.” Since Sony’s PC ports already offer achievements through platforms like Steam and the Epic Games Store, the appearance of this new functionality suggests the potential for cross-platform support for these achievements via the PlayStation Network. Another intriguing possibility is that the “PSPC” moniker hints at a dedicated store for PlayStation PC games, a prospect that could materialize in the future.
Origins of the PSPC Platform
The newly discovered platform reference isn’t tied to any specific title, leaving the exact PC ports that might enjoy PlayStation Trophy support shrouded in mystery. However, it is believed to have originated directly from Sony, especially since game developers lack the authority to submit their own platform labels to the PlayStation Network. Furthermore, the “PSPC” moniker was uncovered alongside a reference to the PS5, both being listed as part of a single “scanner platform.” This has led to speculation that these two sets of achievements could be mutually compatible.
