hmm I would argue that the film should have been made closer to the PS2 era, to help build up the brand to a wider audience.

It still can now, and most likely will, but I would say that the ideal time would have been a few year ago. Still, looking forward to this... trailer was great, but wish it was 2014 and not 2015!

It wasn't to late for wreck it ralph, transformers, evil dead or any Walt Disney 3d remakes, so I can't see why ratchet and clank would be a problem??

if insomniac is planning a 2015 release of a next gen ratchet then its gonna be great for marketing , i think were gonna see a new generation of kids playing the ratchet games like we did back in the ps2 era! look at skylanders, it bought back spyro for a new gen of kids ( but they ruined spyro , insom wont do that )

It would have been smarter to have released the movies before (or without the existence of, better yet) the turds that were All 4 One and Full Frontal Assault.

ratchet and clank games have always had great cut scene.
an full sized movie could be an epic.

that a tv series can be spun off the movie if successful. Seeing it as a regular program on cartoon network or another network would be good.

Like lego has made star wars into a series, R&C could be just as good if done the same way in CG.

I know its too soon to say it but 'hopefully' it doesnt turn out like final fantasy movie. Im sure sony would back the project to make it a success where as FF failed.

Way to use a years old irrelevant joke without even considering what they have to say. Did you even watch the video before making your little joke? They actually bring up some really good points.

It is N4g, they don't realize they are the IGNorant ones.

Better late than never. I'll be 23 by the time it comes out which makes me wish I was rather in my teens. I'm still seeing it regardless but would have had a good time if I was younger. The teaser trailer did have me smiling until the end so I'm just happy it's being made. I'm positive my little nephew will love it though.

This was actually a great video and pretty insightful but hey why read past the title?

Dj7FairyTail1829d ago (Edited 1829d ago )

Yes it is late.
Pokemon had a movie 4-5 years after it debut on Gameboy.

Why would you think that? Everyone doesn't have to know who Ratchet and Clank are them to know if it's good movie and anyone who likes Ratchet and Clank will be a bonus.

I'm surprised anyone cares about IGN's opinion in 2013.

MattyG1829d ago

I really hope this ends up being good. It seems like animation is the best way to go for game movies, since you don't need look-a-like actors and whatnot. They can almost perfectly replicate the feel of games(especially cartoony ones like Ratchet & Clank) better with animation than they can with real world effects/actors/sets/etc.
