All that's left to do is wait, i was really excited to play the game this year, i was hoping for a lot of details on E3 too. Looks like the movie will be great, it has a great potential.

I bet you're actually a die hard crash bandicoot fan, right?

i am a crash bandicoot fan too whats the problem ?
i love platformers more than all the other genres you its different to each person .
the delay isnt a good news for me i was hoping for this year release right now tearaway is the only meaningful platformers that i want .
EDIT : oooops you like platformers too sorry i thought you were one of those jerks of nowadays sorry again .

Considering who made the movie.. I have little, to no faith in it.

Ultr1308d ago

The trailers were amazing. So I dunno what you mean.

barb_wire1308d ago


Seriously, the trailers released April 2013 or the ones from E3 2014, those trailers?

You do know that the movie was supposed to come out July 2015.. yet since the beginning the year, no new trailers of 'actual' movie footage have been released. For the last month or so, they've been conducting test screenings, given the recently announced delay and additional 'big name' stars added to the cast in the last 24hrs.. I can only summise that those test screening were disastrous.

Ultr1308d ago

Well I'll wait till I see it myself before I start with the assumptions.
What if sony saw that the movie is going to be super mega awesome so they gave them more money and time to bring it to the next level? Yeah why would you even think that. Start with the negativity :)

barb_wire1308d ago


Well, if Sony thought what they saw was super mega awesome, why wasn't the Sony owned, Sony Pictures Animation Studio the ones making it? After all, Sony owns the Ratchet IP and have an internal animation studio as well..

Odd business decision to give your IP to another animation studio who biggest claims to fame, are 'Escape from Planet Earth' and 13 'Barbie' movies.
But, yeah, why would you even think that. Start with the enthusiasm :)

Ultr1308d ago (Edited 1308d ago )

Because Sony picture wasn't even thinking about a movie. Then rainmaker approached them. They showed them some nice stuff. And here we go. Btw there already was a screening and turns out the audience loved it. Head on into desaster right?
The barbie movies are extremely low budget. No wonder they are not going to blast you away.
Escape planet earth looked very good in my opinion

Harkins17211308d ago

Can't believe the people bitching at insomniac. Like there's not games to keep you busy in the meantime.

sigfredod1308d ago

So basically according to this statement the reason is the delay the movie tie in, so the game is ready, shame since i only care about the game not the movie, pure bussines reasons , Meh

Axecution1308d ago

Yeah that's pretty much what he said. Hopefully they're still working on the game and the extra time helps them out.

The fact that it was ready to release in Q4 2015 yet we don't even have a screenshot is a bit bothersome...

It's Insomniac though and Ratchet's their baby so I'm sure it'll be good. Strange though
