Next-gen is going to bring with it raised standard prices for games from various publishers. The likes of Take-Two Interactive, Gearbox, and Activision have already begun the process of hiking their prices, as have Sony, who’ve also become the first platform holder to make the switch.

There’s been much debate on the topic of raised prices for games next-gen, to no one’s surprise, and as far as PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan is concerned, the value that the PS5 is offering will justice the prices.

Speaking in an interview with Naver, when asked about higher prices for next-gen games, Ryan said that Sony plans to “deliver a truly next-generation experience” by delivering “the best exclusive games on the market.”

“It is difficult to talk about the overall game market or other game consoles, but I think the value is obvious in the case of the PS5,” Ryan said. “We’ll excite fans around the world with the best exclusive games on the market today and deliver a truly next-generation device experience that will captivate them.”

The PS5 is launching with quite a strong first party lineup out the gate, with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Demon’s Souls, Destruction AllStars, and Sackboy: A Big Adventure. Other than Demon’s Souls and Destruction AllStars, the others will also be releasing on the PS4.

Meanwhile, first party games currently scheduled to launch in 2021 are Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, Horizon Forbidden West (which will also be cross-gen), and the God of War sequel. Returnal and Gran Turismo 7 are also in development.
