Jim Ryan's comments come as the previously exclusive MLB franchise launched on Xbox.

Former PlayStation exclusives such as Horizon Zero Dawn and Death Stranding later made their way to PC, and Sony's MLB The Show franchise even debuted on Xbox this week. It was the first game developed by Sony to be released on a competing system and even came included with a Game Pass subscription. However, Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan says the PS5 will have more exclusives than any of Sony's previous systems. We just haven't seen them much yet.

In a statement to Japanese publication Nikkei that was translated by VGC, Ryan appeared to play down concerns that Sony was over-extending to other platforms.

“We have been quietly but steadily investing in high-end PlayStation games and will ensure that the PS5 generation will have more dedicated software than ever before,” he said.

Some of Sony's PS5 games have also been released on PS4 so far, including Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Two that won't are Returnal, which will be out in about a week, and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. Both make heavy use of the PS5's NVMe SSD for fast loading areas, potentially making it harder for games to launch on older systems. They also make use of the DualSense controller, both to improve immersion and for gameplay mechanics like the shotgun in Rift Apart.

But there are still original PS5 games that will also release on PS4, including Horizon Forbidden West. It remains to be seen when Sony will make a break with the old system, but given its massive success, that could be a while. Still, it's similar to what Microsoft is doing with the Xbox Series X | S, releasing all original games on Xbox One for at least year one, with support for Smart Delivery.
