After all the dust that's been kicked up over Horizon Zero Dawn's impending PC release, we were almost hoping that Amazon France's listing of Days Gone and Gran Turismo Sport coming to PC was false. Sony insist it was.

Many an eyebrow was raised upon seeing Days Gone and Gran Turismo Sport in the same sentence as PC, even if not everyone readily believed it. 

Sony's decision to port Horizon Zero Dawn is one thing. Taking the most recent instalment in one of the most iconic PS-exclusive franchises, along with a new franchise in the making, Days Gone - that's something entirely different.

Now, if we somehow managed to raise your expectations, we sincerely apologise. It didn't take long for Sony to catch a whiff of the rumour and judging by their response, they're not at all amused.

Sony's representative told Polygon that the "listings are not accurate", highlighting the fact that no such announcements have been made. 

It certainly didn't help the leak's case seeing Bloodborne and Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection casually thrown into the imminent PC release category, which was also dismissed by Sony's representative.

Sony have traditionally been quite proud and protective of their in-house exclusives, which shouldn't come as a surprise. Regardless of your platform allegiances, there's no doubt Sony have been on a roll for the longest time, banging out masterpieces like it's nobody's business.

Now, don't get us wrong here - we'd love to see their entire catalogue on PC as much as the next guy. Games like God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn, to name but a few, certainly qualify as epic, nay, legendary additions to any library, as any inebriated PC gamer would ultimately admit.

After decades of cultivating a walled-off platform, Sony mellowed out quite a bit in the past few years. Just imagine, though - telling a PS owner how it's just a matter of time before Aloy makes the jump to PC would've been laughed off just a few years ago. Yet nobody is laughing now.
