We’re barreling towards one year now since the launch of new consoles, but despite that only a few true, blue next gen exclusives have come on the market. With a combination of stock issues between both Microsoft and Sony, and increased development time and costs, the focus is still very much on cross generational development. One of the few next gen-only experiences has been Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, a game that was a technical showcase for the PS5, and one that looks to be doing exceptionally well in the sales department, too. It also seems to have captured the heart of the top guy at PlayStation.

In an interview with TMTPost, PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan spoke about various things PlayStation and when talking about the recent title, admitted it was his favorite title of the last year. While he generally prefers the slow-paced narrative games, it seems Rift Apart has struck a chord with him, calling it his favorite game of the last year, and sees it as a strong showing for the kind of potential that we can see once next gen only development goes into full swing.

“I’m currently playing Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart. As I said before, this game stimulated my specific emotions and made me happy. For me, this is a best game. Usually, I prefer slower-paced games, usually single player mode that requires me to think carefully and deeply. These are the emotions encountered when playing games, and can also reach users who like Hollywood movies.

“I personally think it is Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, which is my favorite and most enjoyable game in the last year. Although it is not a slow-paced game, the joy of the game and the performance of the console really surprised me. I feel that if our team can launch a best game like this within half a year after the launch of PS5, what about three or four years later? I feel very excited when I think of this.”

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is available now and exclusive to the PlayStation 5.
