The release of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on PC has led users to uncover some interesting code and references in the game files. Fans have been digging through the code in the latest PlayStation port to release on PC and references to PlayStation Network code have been spotted. According to users, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on PC includes code that details the ability for gamers to link their PlayStation network accounts to specific games and in turn, unlock in-game bonuses for doing so.
At the moment, there’s no current PlayStation port that allows users to link their PSN account to PC. However, Sony might be working on some unique integration as the references “PSNAccountLinked” and “PSNLinkingEntitlements” were found in Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered.
Users also found files referencing “LevelCapExtras” linked to a code called “PSN Linking Bonuses”. This gives us an idea that Insomniac Games might have been working on ways to reward players with extra XP or levels by linking their PSN account to the game.
If Sony decided to add PSN support to PlayStation games on PC it would be a nice feature. While it is still too early to tell whether to not trophy support will be added to specific games, the feature might also add cross-save and progression support across PS5 and PC.
Given that Sony has released a handful of PlayStation games on PC including God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone and soon Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves, it would make sense for the company to incorporate a linking system on these games.
Microsoft enables the linking of Xbox accounts on specific games. However, these aren’t mandatory and come with the benefit of shared achievements and save progression.
Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered was released last Friday for PC. Our review will be live in the next few days.
