Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault launched today on PS3 for $20, complete with a promise to get a free PS Vita copy thanks to cross buy. While you’ll have to wait until January 2013 for the handheld version, Insomniac has let us know some snippets of news about the near future of Full Frontal Assault. - PSLS (PS Vita, PS3, Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault)

Can't wait to see Ratchet & Clank PS4, Ratchet and Clank in all that next gen glory
dbjj12088  +   609d ago
I do hope the new hardware can provide some amazing effects. R&C have always had a beautiful world.
medziarz  +   609d ago
So Insomniac realized that their on-their-own FUSE is going to fail hard, good news they are returning to Sony and making games people actually care about
Relientk77  +   609d ago
This is what I'm waiting for. Can't wait.
jakmckratos  +   609d ago
will literally be a pixar movie
-Gespenst-  +   609d ago
I hope so. Although maybe they'll create a new platforming / adventure series for the Ps4. Like that game they canned, Girl with a Stick or something?

In any case, a brand new, next gen PROPER R&C game would be delightful. Up to Insomniac though.

I would like to see them make a new character the only focuses on Melee weapons.

They've created so many guns for Ratchet I want to see how many melee weapons they could make
Krew_92  +   609d ago
Yeah, Ratchet and Clank: FToD was among my first PS3 games. I hope I can say the same when the PS4 comes around.

the series will continue?
that's all I have to know! good news all around! still haven't had the chance to get FFA yet but I will next week! all R&C games has been AMAZING!
TrendyGamers  +   609d ago
I'm really happy that the important stuff will be free for FFA.
dbjj12088  +   609d ago
Well I'd ask them to please stop. They're not exactly doing the IP justice anymore.
mushroomwig  +   609d ago
Nobody is forcing you to play them, just let people enjoy the games.
rezzah  +   609d ago
here's the thing about this series, they are passionate about it. They don't shove it down your throat every year because they are not completely business oriented.

There is always a balance and these like to do what they love more than what only brings in money.
PopRocks359  +   609d ago
Looks at Mario articles.

"Nintendo releases the same franchises over and over."

Looks at this one.

"Can't wait for the tenth Ratchet and Clank game!"

Man, everything is topsy-turvey around here.
calis  +   609d ago
Do you think it is the same people commenting?
pixelsword  +   609d ago
I believe he actually does...
PopRocks359  +   609d ago
@pixelsword

Actually no, I'm not narrow-minded enough to believe that. However, I'm aware some people say it. And I think it's a little hypocritical when they do.

Before someone knocks me for it, I love the Ratchet games. But they've been releasing one each year lately. Yeah, Mario releases more if you count Kart, Party and the sports games, but if we're talking about the primary platformers then Mario releases significantly less per generation.

calis  +   609d ago
Well unless the same people are saying it's too much for Mario but happy with R&C, it's not hypocritical.
jakmckratos  +   609d ago
We haven't seen a legit release since 2009
everything else has been different
BitbyDeath  +   609d ago
Mario had 34 games on the Wii alone, how is that the same thing?
AusRogo  +   609d ago
Holy shit! Really?
PopRocks359  +   609d ago
Actually that isn't true at all. Here's a list of games that feature Mario in them.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

Click on platform and look at all the Wii games listed. It only goes up to about 18, and it counts games like Smash Bros. and Dr Mario Online Rx.
BitbyDeath  +   609d ago
This is the list i was using -

http://www.vgchartz.com/gam...

EDIT: That wiki list looks to be missing all Wii Mario titles from 2006, among others.

How many of those are Virtual Console titles BitbyDeath?
BitbyDeath  +   609d ago
@RuperttheBear,

Virtual Console games are on the Wii.
You exclude them then you may as well exclude the R&C remakes which'd still put the difference at ridiculous levels.
#4.2.5 (Edited 609d ago ) | Agree(1) | Disagree(2) | Report
PopRocks359  +   607d ago
Why the hell are you including Virtual Console games? I wouldn't count the Ratchet and Clank collection since they're just ports of old games.
BitbyDeath  +   606d ago
It's not my website, you can't exclude them.
Theirs still about 30 titles though even without em.
doctorstrange  +   609d ago
This comment makes sense when there's Ratchet & Clank Tennis
Luthar  +   609d ago
10th? That happened a long time ago.
creized1  +   609d ago
Mario has been out since 1995
doctorstrange  +   609d ago
Try 1981
InTheLab  +   609d ago
hehe... Young gamers...
mushroomwig  +   609d ago
There's a major difference between the two franchises though, how many Ratchet party games have there been? Exactly, zero. The day I see 'Ratchet and friends party 9' is the day you can compare the two.
PopRocks359  +   609d ago
Well, if we're going by main platforming games as oppose to spin-offs that aren't even developed in house, it's important to note that there's been a Ratchet almost every consecutive year. Mario has at most two per console generation.
G20WLY  +   609d ago
Poprocks359, No... There just hasn't.

And you can't say "every consecutive year" and then stick "almost" in front of it and think that makes it okay.

Whether you're lying, or mistaken; you're wrong.
Sevir  +   609d ago
I wish they'd continue with the resistance franchise, they really hit it out the park with Resistance 3 a damn shame ps3 gamers just gave a collective meh when it released. But then again Sony also left this game out to die, there wasn't any marketing for this game. Which is sad because this game was awesome much like R:FoM :-)
Skate-AK  +   609d ago
Resistance 3 was great but the ending made me wanna break the game.
Ultr  +   609d ago
absolutely...
CRASHBASHUK  +   609d ago
I was kina hoping for the last resistance game to be based in Russia where it all started because you would think the main base would be there not in new York

Just wait for the PS4, Resistance 4 for the PS4.
calis  +   609d ago
I agree. Definitely felt like they just released it and dropped it after that.

Damn shame, Resistance (all of them) were great games.
I would like a open world reboot with multiplayer and on the next gen PS4.

jerethdagryphon  +   609d ago
no that wouldnt work with ratchet a normal single player game would be good
dafegamer  +   609d ago
no it would hurt R&C just like Jak and Daxter
kingPoS  +   609d ago
Where's the Ratchet & Clank Future trilogy collection?
When's that coming out.
Dmd  +   609d ago
Was it ever announced? I haven't play any R&C yet and was wondering if I should give it a chance. With a Future collection on the way, it'd be a no brainer for me...
MidnytRain  +   609d ago
We haven't seen a real R&C game since A Crack in Time in 2009.
BananaEatingSquid  +   609d ago
I've just recently gotten into the Ratchet & Clank series after it was recommended to me. Good bunch of games, played the first 3 so far :)
dafegamer  +   609d ago
best news today ratchet and clank will live forever cant wait for the next gen game.
how about Ratchet & Clank: Huge encounters
Soldierone  +   609d ago
I wonder if they will go back to Sony after EA ruined Overstrike / Fuse. The sales will probably determine that. If it sales amazing, they will stay, if not then they will probably go back to Sony.
Williamson  +   608d ago
One of my favorite game series! Especially the first 3 since the humor in those ones didn't feel too kiddy, but hopefully on the ps4 they go back to the roots.
hongthay  +   608d ago
I love the Ratchet and CLank series. They need to release a collection of the PS3 games so far.

I Can't wait to put the new one on my Vita. Too bad I am waiting until January for that.
