PlayStation 5 Will Have More Exclusives Than Previous Generations, Says Sony Boss

Sony Interactive Entertainment big cheese Jim Ryan has revealed that the PlayStation 5 is aiming to get even more exclusive titles than "ever before," meaning there's a lot in store for fans.

Though the PlayStation 5 is a hefty chunk of incredible technology that launched gaming into the next generation with the exciting rumbles of the DualSense and super-super-super fast loading times, the games that take advantage of this hardware have been light on the ground. Hey, I'm being factual here. In terms of exclusives, we've gotten Astro's Playroom, Demon's Souls, Destruction AllStars, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Sackboy: A Big Adventure. Don't get me wrong: these games were good. I'm not biting the hands that develop the games, as the saying goes. Plus, those Easter eggs in Astro's Playroom were the icing on an adorable cake - check them out below.

Yet, they were all released quite close together towards the end of 2020, and when we look ahead, the schedule for games that are only available on the PlayStation 5 isn't very busy. Returnal, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, God Of War 2, Horizon Forbidden West, and Gran Turismo 7 are the ones that have been announced at the moment. Now, Ewan's been playing Returnal ahead of its release at the end of this month, and I'll tell you that he's very impressed. We've also got the technical majesty of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart to gawp at in summer, and God Of War 2 is the most anticipated game of 2021 according to gamers. Speaking in an interview with Nikkei, Ryan explained that there's still a fair few projects waiting in the wings to surprise PlayStation 5 players (shout-out to VGC for the source).

"We have been quietly but steadily investing in high-quality games for PlayStation, and we will make sure that the PS5 generation will have more dedicated software than ever before," said the CEO. "We have repeatedly engaged in mergers and acquisitions, including Insomniac Games in the US. We will not rule out that option in the future." He also mentioned that gamers will see new games from Sony's Japanese subsidiaries in equal measure. "It is important for us to provide software that fits the Japanese gaming community, and PS5 has included a lot of software from Japanese developers since its early stages," he added. "We will continue to strengthen our ties with Japanese developers and release content for PS5 that fits the Japanese market."
