It's a premium-priced PlayStation Studios title.
Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart has an Australian RRP (recommended retail price) of $124.95 AUD, the highest price point Sony allows for.
Back in September of last year, Sony confirmed that titles from its first-party studios would “be priced from US$49.99 to US$69.99 (RRP) on PS5.” Here within Australia, that meant a price as high as $124.95 AUD.
Titles like Spider-Man Miles Morales and Demon’s Souls have also been placed at the high end of Sony’s pricing scale.
Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart is a PS5 exclusive, offering visuals at up to 4K with HDR. It also offers a performance mode that will hit “a targeted 60fps frame rate as you encounter new enemies across multiple dimensions.” Support for the DualSense’s adaptive triggers and haptic feedback will also be offered alongside Tempest 3D AudioTech on compatible headphones.
Do you feel that $124.95 AUD is an acceptable price for a first-party PS5 game? Why or why not?
Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart is a PS5 exclusive available from 11 June.
