Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault Out 11/27 for $19.99

We’re happy to announce Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault will be available on November 27th on the PlayStation Store and at retail. That’s right, you asked and we listened: Full Frontal Assault will be available as a retail copy for those of you who love physical copies of your games! Both the download and retail versions support cross-buy as well, so your purchase gets you both the game on PS3 and a digital copy for PlayStation Vita. (PS Vita, PS3, Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault)

The best part is, the US will get a retail release and we get a little more info on how the Cross-buy feature will work on games that are coming to both systems.

"There is no physical version of the Vita game, so at retail you buy a PS3 disc and then you use that disc and your PS3 to unlock the vita version (which you can then sync from your PS3)"

"The retail version includes a PS3 disc w/ the game on it. You can then use that disc in your PS3 to unlock the Vita version for your Vita."

It seems like there will be no Voucher inside the box for the Vita version. You will need to use your PS3 to get access to the Vita version. To me, it's a smart idea and implantation of the feature.

What happens if someone doesn't have a PS3 but has a vita? Does there have to be a PS3 involved or can I unlock it without the console.
Godchild1020  +   725d ago
You just buy the game from the PSN Vita store. You will still pay 20 dollars, but if you ever decided to get a PS3, you can download the PS3 version for free.

As mention by Gravelord, the Vita version needs the retail release more then the PS3.

I love the Ratchet and clank series

Does this mean that you'll have to download the Vita version onto your PS3 and then transfer it over to the Vita? Or will it appear on your Vita? Perhaps in the download list?

Good question. I'd like to know exactly how this is going to work without a DL code. It's gotta be on the disc.. Right? Technically you if you only wanted the vita version you could buy the ps3 copy download the vita version and trade it in. Wonder how they will deal with that.

It's probably gonna be a download code. I don't see how you could transfer a content from a disc to the Vita.

If it's code, you can get it on vita. It's probably a code, because vita games are released on stores anyway. They sometime include codes for beta in there, so they could put one that make the vita version free.

I don't know if you played the disc version of Dead Space 2 for the PS3, but that game had Dead Space: Extraction on the disc. You had to use the PS3 to download the PSN version off the disc, you still need the disc in the PS3 to.play it though. So, I think that its the same way it will work for the retail Cross-buy.

The way you got it was, you had to click on the "Bonus Content" disc icon that is located under the regular one on the XMB. Clicking there will reveal Dead Space Extraction, which needs to be installed.

They said it won't be a download code but godchild is right.

Its a Sony IP. But honestly i feel Insomniac have driven it into the ground. Admittedly i only played tools of destruction which was fab but it sounds like they released too many and the quality went downhill.

They've just been trying new things with the past 2. A Crack in Time was the last traditional R&C and I think that was the best game in thee series.
Kalowest  +   725d ago
The R&C series is still great. The current R&C series All 4 One and Full Frontal Assault, are just trying to do something new with the overall series.
DOMination-  +   725d ago
Fair enough guys, nothing wrong with trying something new

Can't wait for the game. I love Ratchet and Clank.

Pity it is so short though. It it is like Quest for Booty that was about 2 to 5 hours.

I think this is a tower defense hybrid game. Not a full rachet title.

Awesome! I'm really glad they made it only $19.99. Might actually pick up now since its retail. Too bad Vita isn't getting a retail version though. If anything, Vita needs it more than PS3.(since 32 gigs is the max you can get on it)
