Zuperman  +   869d ago
Is this game like a sequel to the series or like a sub story?

There's been to many Rachet games, I'm starting to get confused lol.
dafegamer  +   869d ago
@zuperman gameplay wise: sequel to ACIT
story wise: a prequel of TOD
Mr_Nuts  +   869d ago

It's the reason I've never got into it that much...you don't want to just start in the middle of a franchise. It's like starting from MGS4 this gen...you just wouldn't do it.

Damn I wish Jak and Daxter got this much love
extermin8or  +   869d ago
@zuperman: "The game will be an epilogue to Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction and A Crack in Time, according to the page." It's a sequel to ACIT both in gameplay and story...? Based after Full Frontal Assault too I'd presume.

Sunset overdrive is better than this rehash sequel.
abzdine  +   869d ago
good it's for PS3 but i want one for PS4 as well and it looks like platforming awesomeness is back with this episode cause the last two R&C suck big time

LOOOOOL dafegamer ive never laughed so hard in my life.
Aceman18  +   869d ago
huge fan of the series even beat the last two that weren't mainline to the series, and even though they were a bit on the lacking side i still enjoyed enough.

so i'm looking forward to this game. if they bring back the feel of ToD, and ACiT then i'll be a happy camper :)
HammadTheBeast  +   869d ago
Hopefully it's not the Fuse team, I'm hoping those guys are working on Sunset Overdrive and the other teams working on this.
FanboyCrusher  +   869d ago
So in other words you would want the worse team (by your definition) working on the Xbox game due to severe butt hurt, and fanboyism? That's cute. We get it, the PS3 was your first console and you're overly defensive of it. Take a break for a while, the comment section can go without your shenanigans.
HammadTheBeast  +   869d ago
Actually the N64/Dreamcasts where my first consoles. My two 360's were my first consoles this Gen until RROD hit me 3 times.

GTFO pl0x.
MRMagoo123  +   869d ago
kinda funny the "fanboycrusher" has been doing nothing but defend MS and be an xbone fanboy.
Gamer1982  +   869d ago
Indeed I'm sure he wants the best team of insomniac working on this as its probably one of his favourite series. Whats fanboyism about that? Absolutly nothing. It's like saying you want DICE to work on battlefield and criterion to work on Burnout rather than other divisions of EA as you know they are gonna make the best possible version.
showtimefolks  +   869d ago
thank you sony/insomniac its about time

been waiting for a while for a proper ratchet and clank game

is this on ps4 only or ps4/ps3?
sherimae2413  +   869d ago
ps3 it is ^_^
but insomniac is considering a vita version
RockmanII7  +   869d ago
actually it's PS3 exclusive
badz149  +   869d ago
I hope there will be a Vita version
and Sony offer Cross buy with this just like Sly 4 and implement cross-save and some cool AR feature too.

I'm still kinda worried for a Vita version though as QForce looks quite bad on Vita and it seems like they rushed it out and playing QForce on Vita makes me feel dizzy! here hoping for a better Vita version if any.

its gonna be $29.99 MSRP so buying day one should be a problem for many ratchet and clank fans as long as the game delivers quality content
GT67  +   869d ago
far as we know on both ps3/4
andibandit  +   869d ago

actually only PS3
dcj0524  +   868d ago
I finally bought a crack in time ( tools of destruction was the first ps3 game I bought) so I want one on the vita. That would make my day.

DonFreezer  +   869d ago
Wait so know Insomniac are back on making great games?Delusional ps fanboys you are really something.
G20WLY  +   869d ago
You mean 'now', not 'know'. How can you know they're back making great games? How can anyone? Are you...trolling?! :O

We can only hope. Love the series and even enjoyed the last one, despite it being a bite-sized R&C lite.

After Fuse, they have some reputational damage to fix; what better way to do that than to get this stellar series back on track? :)

welp time to save some money guys, this must be sequel to the mainline series

mushroomwig  +   869d ago
It looks like it's a game based from a cancelled PS2 title so I don't see how it can be a mainline sequel.
dafegamer  +   869d ago
read the article, its an adventure game, akin to the mainline R&C games, plus even more gameplay
for clank

from the article:

A return to the Future – Series protagonists, Ratchet and Clank, return along with Captain Qwark, Talwyn, Cronk and Zephyr in a brand-new, story-driven single-player adventure.

Even more crazy weapons and gadgets for your arsenal– Arm yourself with a variety of exotic new weapons and gadgets, including the Winterizer and Nether Blades.

Clank strikes back –All-new gameplay offers inter-dimensional challenges where Clank can alter gravity, manipulate objects and solve mind-bending platforming puzzles.

Discover new worlds… and the dangers of space – Traverse through the zero-gravity of space and explore a mysterious sector filled with new planets to explore along with hidden dangers and dark secrets yet to be uncovered.
sorry guys with "sequel", I actually mean traditional R&C gameplay, not spin offs.
Storywise, yes its a prequel

Hope it's as good as A Crack In Time & Tools of Destruction.
showtimefolks  +   869d ago

imo tools of destruction was the best ratchet and clank game, ts was a blast to play and quest for booty dlc made it even better
Pintheshadows  +   869d ago
Tools of Destruction is one of my favourite games this gen.
Goro  +   869d ago
First 3 were the best no doubt, most will disagree because they never played them in the PS2 days
dcj0524  +   868d ago
The third one was incredible
To play with friends. The 1st one had so much style. My favorite idms still tools of destruction. I JUST bought crack in time so I may change my mind
mega31  +   869d ago
Isnt insomniac making an Xbox One game as well?? is it normal for 1 company to make two different games for two different systems??
nick309  +   869d ago
Sony dosent own em, but r&c is sony's property.

On topic.. Im sad jak isnt coming back, oh well hopefully at gamescom...
FanboyCrusher  +   869d ago
It would be a first, but I can't say it's a bad thing. Insomniac knows it's creativity, and if they want to dabble a bit of insomniac flavor on all of the consoles that's totally cool with me.
Timesplitter14  +   869d ago
I think Insomniac expanded a lot during the PS3 era. Now they have two teams working on different games, much like Naughty Dog
dark-hollow  +   869d ago
Depends of the number of their developers.

I think insomniac can pull off making two games at the same time.
bobtheimpaler  +   869d ago
They have two teams now. One in Burbank the other in South Carolina I think...maybe North.

I can't wait really. I like the main games and if this is anything like A Crack In Time that would be awesome.
badz149  +   869d ago
this comes out this fall but based on the interview with Ted, Sunset Overdrive still doesn't even have a release window yet and what they have shown at E3 was mainly their vision of the game. so...I'm pretty sure they will finish and polish this first before going all out with Sunset Overdrive.
mega31  +   869d ago
Ok makes sense
FanboyCrusher  +   869d ago
Interesting. Always been a Ratchet and Clank fan, I'd like to see what approach they take to this title. Hopefully something more traditional rather than something along the lines of All 4 One.
PirateThom  +   869d ago
extermin8or  +   869d ago
PS3 and PS4 I think/hope. In fact if it isn't on ps4 I'll be pissed.
sherimae2413  +   869d ago
then start to get pissed, its ps3 only
but insomniac is also considering a vita version
RockmanII7  +   869d ago
Be pissed, it's PS3 exclusive


Ok, Sherimae. Both comments you beat me by like 20 seconds. Stop doin that.
#6.1.2 (Edited 869d ago ) | Agree(3) | Disagree(0) | Report
MRMagoo123  +   869d ago
can you imagine how good an r&c game would look on the ps4 tho !
badz149  +   869d ago
why should anybody be pissed that this is a PS3 title?
imo, it's still the best looking platformer on any platform and with great gameplay and good story to boot! personally I'm happy this is for the PS3! the PS4 can wait
Serg  +   869d ago
I hope they don't screw this up, I love Ratchet & Clank, but the last few games with that name on it weren't up to par. A Crack in Time was amazing, but anything after that, not so much. Their latest work in general was lacking, to put it mildly, nothing like the Insomniac games I've played on 3 generations now.
Nicaragua  +   869d ago
I agree. Their output has been going downhill since resistance 2 so i find it hard to get excited by their titles anymore.
6DEAD6END6  +   869d ago
I really hope it's good and not just thrown together.
Jac5al  +   869d ago
PirateThom  +   869d ago
Just PS3 is what the internet has led me to believe.
extermin8or  +   869d ago
Ps3 and Ps4 I think, silly to announce a new AAA ps3 exclusive now thats not coming to ps4 when you're trying to push that hardware... I mean GT6 is coming to ps4 just next year.
andibandit  +   869d ago
Nope PS3 only
Reborn  +   869d ago
I guess they went back to what they thought they did best, after Fuse.

Well, I hope it's good.
nick309  +   869d ago
They are developing this, sunset overdrive & fuse 2 at the moment.. Im glad its not just r&c but too bad they done with resistance.
bobtheimpaler  +   869d ago
I wouldn't exactly count them out of Resistance just yet. They are developing a new R&C. I reckon they're just waiting for the right time to do it.
WeAreLegion  +   869d ago
I asked Ted Price about Resistance on a Reddit AMA. He said two things.

1) They're done for now, but may come back to it some day.

2) At least one team within Sony's 1st party developers was looking at the series. ;)
BuffMordecai  +   869d ago
Great! Hopefully its a good game and not suckish like Insomniac's last few titles.
danny818  +   869d ago
Ps4?!?!? Plz be ps4
andibandit  +   869d ago
But it's already been stated numerous times it's only for PS3?
MakiManPR  +   869d ago
PS4 please!
Prcko  +   869d ago
day 1!
djoboy  +   869d ago
I was hoping for something else or atleast developed by a seperate first party studio..Insomniac is mostly likely going throw the project at one of their side teams. Since they are working on a big project for microsoft.
SNACK_SHARK_TROLL  +   869d ago
I hope they change Ratchet back to his classic looks (Like R&C 1,2,3,4, and futures.) instead of the new looks (Like R&C all 4 one and assault). I looove R&C games.
Williamson  +   868d ago
I prefer his classic looks, wish they can go back. Also I miss the Teen rating since the jokes were more crude in those games.
Eyeco  +   869d ago
Ok I enjoyed the games on the PS2 but do we really need another Ratchet and Clank game ? Didn't one release a few months ago ? I was kinda hoping for a new IP this franchise is a tad milked, the 12th installment in 10 years come on now
CaptainPunch  +   869d ago
Might as well come to the PS4 then.
talocaca  +   869d ago
Please Insonmiac!! just make a "classic" Ratchet and Clank with some great innovations!....not need for 4 player co-op, or episode.

For a while it felt like this series was our answer to Mario Galaxy..then something happened :(

I have the feeling that Insomniac is a bit hurt by how BIG Naughty Dog became and Sony kinda started neglecting them...

I want to buy your games damn it!!!
TheFallenAngel  +   869d ago
Don't care for Insomniac anymore. Unless they make a Resistance: Fall of Man remake or Fall of Man 2, I don't care for them.
Williamson  +   869d ago
Please be ps4! We don't need another ps3 entry, also being on ps4 can breathe new life into the series. Oh and I'm pretty pumped to be back to traditional R&C
extermin8or  +   869d ago
It could be both, I mean graphics look amazing on ps3 anyway.. but if it's ps3 only that'd be stupid...
sherimae2413  +   869d ago
sorry according to ign report today its only for ps3
but insomniac is considerate for a vita version of the game
Williamson  +   868d ago
Well atleast its 29.99$....although that kinda worries me about the quality/length. I just gotta have faith with Insomniac i guess.
BattleTorn  +   869d ago
I thought they'd busy with Sunset Overdrive
MRMagoo123  +   869d ago
by the look of that game they wherent busy long, but im pretty sure they have more than one team.
PSjesus  +   869d ago
Srsly PS3!!!! i know Sony is dedicated to 10 years for each console
But this well be awesome on PS4 or Vita, it reminds when Sony released GOW2 on PS2 instead of making it PS3 lunch title
timmyp53  +   869d ago
AHHHH PS3 life extended jajajajaja. Awesome. Finally a true successor or whatever it is to TOD/CiT. I've been waiting. Unless its PS4 lol.
Williamson  +   868d ago
Already updated your Pic I see lol. Game looks awesome so far.
evilhasitsway  +   869d ago
i really ant into racket and clank so its whatever for me.
delicia  +   869d ago

Riderz1337  +   869d ago
Woot I love me some Ratchet and Clank! Great to see the series go back to it's roots. The art style of this game is incredible!
XabiDaChosenOne  +   869d ago
It's like the PS3 drank from the fountain of youth, supporting 3 consoles ain't no joke playas.
ger2396  +   869d ago
So they had time and man power to make an exclusive for Microsoft's xbone. And the best they can do is a new ratchet and clank for ps3? Wow considering their latest games were medicore, this isn't encouraging. It looks like they're just throwing Sony a bone.
ginsunuva  +   869d ago
Insomniac has 2 teams.

Finally a follow up to A Crack in Time.
