Much hay has been made of Insomniac's pre-release claim that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart "would not have been possible without the Solid State Drive of the PlayStation 5," with ourselves contributing a bale or two.

Now, the PC iteration is out in the wild, and the wizards over at Digital Foundry have been able to put the claim to the test through means of technical necromancy, using a Frankensteined launch PS4 HDD. The entire video is a fantastic watch, but the clip below is pretty demonstrative of the point at hand.

So while Rift Apart technically "runs", it doesn't work in a state that anyone would accept, least of all Insomniac or Sony, vindicating the studio once and for all (probably). Now that that's sorted let's get back to matters of far greater import: whether or not MJ in Marvel's Spider-Man 2 looks enough like MJ in Marvel's Spider-Man, or whether we have a body-snatchers situation on our hands.
