Great news for fans :)
I never get tired of Ratchet, probably one of the best franchises of all time

I hate that its not a launch title for the PS4...but it just goes to show Sony supports their systems.

Goes to show all the support Sony is giving it's current console. Especially when compared to competitors. It's like a barren wasteland over there. lol

Sony isn't scrapping support for PS3 just to try and fluff up their next gen launch lineup.

Probably because they KNOW the top notch devs they own will deliver on PS4 regardless...

Let's just hope Insomniac can deliver this time though.

Well that, and the 70 million console user base. Lol.

OMG! I'm so happy!!
this fall?? how has this been kept silent under the radar for all this time? I bought the PS3 because of R&C ToD and now I have a perfect game to be my likely final PS3 game!

in a good way, why the hell is Sony making it harder for me to move on to the PS4? this is the year the PS4 is out yet they are still all out with GoW, TLoU, Beyond 2 Souls, Puppeteer and now R&C? god...I really need to start spending more time gaming now or else I won't be able to finish all these games I'm buying!

GREAT NEWS ALL ALONG! as a huge fan of R&C, I say thank you Sony and Insomniac!

PS3 just keeps getting more and more games.

THIS is how you support a game console. I still have several PS3 games on my backlog and it looks like I'll have plenty more PS3 games to play in the future.
BiggCMan  +   945d ago the WORLD...does Sony expect us to pay for all these DAMN exclusives...AND a new console???? WHY DEY SO GOOD TO US?!?!?
Aceman18  +   945d ago
hearing this brings a smile to my face :) easily day one just like the old R&C's.

damn you Sony your costing me crazy loot for what i'm getting this year.
SilentNegotiator  +   944d ago
Insomniac hasn't made very good games in quite a while.

Very cautious optimism. At best.
FlameHawk  +   945d ago
This Fall? Wow, I honestly have a bad feeling about this if it is going to come out this early...
Its $30, so I'm guessing it won't be that long.
Well maybe they weren't allowed to say anything because of Sunset Overdrive :/.
Please let it be good!

What the fuck sony... why am I even bothering to buy a ps4? I might aswell go get a ps3 and have that for the next year then buy a ps4 cheaper when the launch game prices have dropped in price... I'm not going to but at the same time it's like you're trying to make it harder for me to want to spend that money love the RandC games.. ffs it should have been on ps4 as well if not exclusive launch title. God you've been doing everything right yet still acting like total idiots on occasion too... At least GT6 will be out on ps4 aswell just like a year later.
PSVita  +   945d ago
I feel you lol but not everyone can get the PS4 day 1 or even close to it. People are still buying them for the first time so it's great for them.
extermin8or  +   945d ago
Then why not both. I mean they tend to design these games on PC. x86 hardware and the specs it's got? Surely porting R&C or working on two versions wouldn't be too hard. Even if it weren't coming till next summer right I wouldn't mind aslong s they just announced it. Instead they mention a possible vita port-now I love my vita but if you played the last R&C vita port... seeing as Insomniac never bother todo the handheld version themselves well it waas given to new inexperienced devs under pressure to get it done timely. I don't completely blame Tin Giant for what happened because really it's Sony and Insomniacs fault. Especially as they can't even give a Quarter of 2014 for when they expect this Gaikai streaming service to launch or the expected price it's going to cost... not even a rough idea of a price bracket or if it'll be part of PS plus...

over r&c? you dont own a ps3 but wine about r&c not on ps4?
are you one of those people who signed a partition to bring back drm?
I'm happy they are still supporting the ps3 as a gamer you should be too.
bad comment of the day....smh

I own a 4th broken ylod ps3, had 360gb replacements 2 in warrenty (one the disc drive went kaput, other YLOD) one I had to pay to have replaced where the thing got stuck in a recovery mode cycle. Then the 4th got YLOD and my little brother had purchased a ps3 (god knows why) so I use his. My point is this should at least be on BOTH PS3 and PS4. And it's not just this the last of us is going to be a game I want to go back to and play for many months, Batman:Arkham origins and GTA5 aren't getting next gen ports, neither is Beyond two souls- GT6 might but not till the backend of next year. It would cost me about half the price of a PS4 if when the PS4 releases I bought a new ps3 instead for use at uni as my little brothers one wont be there, and ALL of those mentioned games as current gen prices have hit a low, they are half price after a mere couple of weeks now. Plus over here in the UK we appear to be getting screwed over with Games being £60-that's £20 MORE THAN THIS GEN. Also £60 does not-$60 it equals like $80-90.... And that goes for both consoles game pricing... However as much as I want Watch Dogs etc and I want the apparently superior next gen version of it, and killzone and infamous in the new year I will still get PS4. But my point is, Sony should be making it easier to justify that spend which is alot of money. Rather than making it harder. It's like apple or Samsung launching a new phone with an outdated version of IOS or Android and the same day releasing a patch for all their other models from the last 2 years or whatever giving them the newest major update with loads and loads of new features or something but saying they have nothing to say about a patch for the new phone if it will ever arrive. It's just stupid.

Look this is a little disappointing, but I am sure a PS4 Ratchet and Clank will come out at some point. However, this coming to PS3 around the time PS4 launches just proves, yet again, for the 3rd generation of Playstation that Sony supports their fans. Can't afford to buy a PS4 right away, or don't want to for some reason? There is still new stuff to play for your PS3, not just incremented sports games, gotta love it.

There are 5 exclusive titles that I can name off the top of my head, that have/will release this year on the PS3: Ni No Kuni, The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, Gran Turismo 6 and now Ratchet & Clank. 2 of them new IP's, that's crazy if you think about it.

Personally, I am a little disappointed with Insomniac as of late, so I will wait for some feedback and reviews on this game. I loved A Crack in Time and the games before, so I don't want to be disappointed like I was with the last 2 games with the same name, but it looks like I won't be.
Man-E-Faces  +   945d ago
I don't know why people are disagreeing with you, this game looks more appealing than Knack. That's pretty sad and embarrassing actually a current gen game looking more appealing than a next gen title. I am really considering cancelling my pre-order for PS4 and it's not just because of this game it's GT6, DisgaeaD2, Puppeteer, Beyond, Sengoku basara 4 etc. I am struggling to see the need for PS4 and that's Sony's fault not mine!
Edit: It's not about this game particularly, it's about Sony releasing more appealing games on the PS3 and making the immediate purchase of a PS4 not worthwhile. Does Sony even have 1 game running at 1080p, 60fps? I am struggling to see the excitement in their launch titles technically that is, wether their good games or not is an individual's preference.

See I'm not going mad-plus the 3rd party games like GTA5 and Batman not going next gen... I doubt I will cancel my PS4 but the point still stands Sony ought to be making the decision easier towards the expensive new hardware. Not have me paying the money but slightly regretting it at the same time when I see people playing all these games franchises I love that I can't play not because their xbox exclusives but LAST GEN exclusives.... I'm not saying the PS4 games aren't good, ofc they are it's just when the Xbox one has considerably more exclusives announced than you, you have claims of 20 1st party titles in first year but have not too much evidence of anything feb-september 2014 bad The order:1886... It seems odd to be announcing games like R&C on ps3 with no PS4 version. Not to mention the pricing of next gen games here in the UK has gone up by £20. There's no indication of a release quarter (or even year, after all video store took almost 2 years to arrive) for the GAIKAI streaming so that can't help me anytime soon and no rough pricing ideas of that could be included into PS plus, or a higher tier for a tenner extra or it could be it's own £30 a year service... So while it's great that Sony are still fully supporting PS3- I remember its first year or two. Where for various reasons it had few big exclusives and although I think for the time being PS4 launch sales are safe. Sony are on a rocky road for sales into next year if they don't announce more exclusives etc. Look at Wii U or Vita. Both had good/decent launch line ups. Wii u certainly sold well on release. Vita was ok, it was underwhelming but could have plodded along. Then the 1st prty software became more sparse as did 3rd party and the sales dried up till lately on Ps vita where they've picked up a tiny bit. But it's still not doing great...So yes I'm concerned that this isn't getting a PS4 port, even if it were announced for 6 months after PS3 version just to know it existed, who was developing it (or a vita version) and see the game running after Qforce's Vita nightmare?

Tons of PS4 games coming. Not to worry friend, there's also 15 first party games yet to be announced for first year.
silkrevolver  +   945d ago
Yes, it WAS Sony's decision to put it on the PS3, not Insomniac's at all...

extermin8or  +   945d ago
Sony could've pushed/paid for a PS4 port aswell. They could even get another developer todo it there are enough around they have Tin Giant doing this and that-often vita ports they don't seem to be experienced enough todo. But a port to 'simple architecture' (x86) with all the power and RAM of the ps4... Should really be a fairly simple job. I'm not saying it shouldn't be on PS3 but it should be on PS4 aswell.
silkrevolver  +   945d ago
I just want it to be good.

Pintheshadows  +   945d ago
Well, I love R and C so i'll be getting this but why is it not a PS4 title.

It looks really nice for a PS3 game though.

don't really want to hear about any more games coming out on 8 year old consoles

I love ratchet games, don't get me wrong, going commando is my favorite but....meh....I mean, low resolutions, jaggies, screen tearing, all that last gen garbage I want to move past

if it was for ps4 I'd be WAY more interested, as it stands, I'll pick it up some random day for $5 or rent it

nice! a r&c game thats not gimmicky! I love r&c but I REALLY didnt like how it sidetracked into 4player and tower defense style games. I missed this style of play and im gald to see it going back to its roots.... maybe a true vita port?! the last port of a r&c game was kinda choppy. if they do a port PLEASE GOD DO IT RIGHT!

Wow why no ps4? But still going to get this, thanks insomniac for going back to what we fans want...I just wanna forget about all 4 one and FFA to be honest. While not terrible, it wasn't R&C.
TheOneEyedHound  +   945d ago
Not interested.
DialgaMarine  +   945d ago
If it's a truly traditional addition to the series, Insomniac may have just earned back a little bit of my respect for them. It feels like it's been forever since ACiT, one of the best games ever created. Insomniac needs to go back to this formula and stick with it. No more gimmicky money grubbing BS. Also, it's great to know Sony is still supporting the PS3, but I would liked to have seen this on PS4 just to continue adding more reasons to purchase that beast. Oh well. Sony should be revealing many games before launch. Can not wait.

Happy To See a New ratchet and clank game but i was hoping for a cross over with jak and ratchet :(
Williamson  +   945d ago
Wow according to ign its only gonna cost 29.99$. For a full fledged R&C that's a steal, hopefully its as long as ACIT.
silkrevolver  +   945d ago
I can't say I'm not disappointed that it's not on the PS4...

...but for thirty bucks?

Sarobi  +   945d ago
This may be the year PS4 and Xbox One releases.. but it is also PS3's year. PS3 has still got a lot to be excited for.
McScroggz  +   945d ago
It's good Insomniac listened to their fans and are trying to bring them the R&C they want; but at the same time I find it disheartening that they seemingly can't do anything significantly different with the franchise. Plus, as good as the R&C franchise is, I think we could do a while without a new entry.

But hey, at a budget price if it's good it's hard to resist. I definitely hope to see more price difference in the next generation.
dafegamer  +   945d ago

feraldrgn  +   945d ago

Please be a lengthy game, I loved ToD & ACIT.
GribbleGrunger  +   945d ago
Shorter than ACIT but longer than QFB. I'd say it's probably about 10 - 12 hours if you do everything and collect EVERYTHING. It's going to be soooooo much fun watching my son play this.

The game has no multiplayer as “this is a single-player experience and all of our development resources have gone into that.” Stevenson revealed that the game is “not as long as ACIT, but it’s much much larger than Q4B or FFA,” but when people complained he said “yes, but it’s huge compared to Q4B and FFA, and has new planets, a bunch of new weapons and a ton of variety. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.”
