Sony's French PR have just sent out a press release revealing Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time. Crack in Time takes place shortly after Tools of Destruction and Quest for Booty, and will see Ratchet travelling through time to rescue Clank.
YAY! NEW RATCHET! I love Ratchet & Clank! Now give us a new Jak! Naughty Dog, you hear?! Oh well, first Uncharted 2! Omfg, so many good games coming!
YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I Knew it cause i bought quest for booty, i just wanna see some gameplay now
so I assume this is a FULL game, or is it another expansion of sorts on psn? eitherway very good news.
me too! i just bought quest for booty for 9 bucks and its all worth every penny. it is a mighty fine game for that price! har har har! just finished it yesterday so i'm eager to see a new full sequel of ratchet and clank. all i can say is bring it on insomniac!
hell yea, its on and popin
wtf i payed $15 dollars and it was short as hell to be honest, but I liked it somewhat just wanted more. I hope insomniac gives up some kinda bonus if you bought TOD and Q4B in ACIT
As excited as i am for a new R&C i hope Insomniac can move on to a new franchise aside from Resistance and R&C. I was hoping for that RPG game thing that was rumored. Oh well another exclusive for sony to add on the list
Awesome! But they need to improve from the last one. Add trophies, make the game longer, add online multiplayer, even harder difficulty. They don't really need to fix anything, just add more stuff.
Multiplayer? Why exactly? Have u played ANY of the games in the series? Nothing about this game screams multiplayer
Been waiting for this one. I bought R&CF:ToD the day I bought my PS3. This will be a day 1 buy, no question. Edit: Holy crap, I gotta start saving my pennies. Ghostbusters, FFVII:ACC (with demo, please), NGS2, Uncharted 2, GOWIII, all in 2009? I guess I'd better finish RE5 and Valkyria Chronicles so I can make some room in my schedule. :)
It's a talent:)
Well trophies will definitely be there. Not too fussed about another multiplayer game as ive got too many already. I thought the length of tools of destruction was fair but i wouldn't complain if there was more to do though. However it turns out they've got my loot. I didnt really feel the Q4B was all that though, maybe i was expecting too much, im not sure
Should I say I told ya so? http://playstationlifestyle... Please don't question my sources any longer.
Sev, what's your source's favourite cheese?
David Jaffe is about to announce his game as well.. ^^ my goodness You guys have to see the game if you thought tools of destruction looks good. A Crack in Time looked even better. I cant even believe how far there engine has come, Resistance's Nocturnal Engine is just amazing and it really show's in This new game it's powering... You'll all be amazed
First of all....not just good or great news,but Fantastic news! I am not counting on MP,just dont see that happening.As for CO-op,it's something I would think could be a great additional "option" for those that want this feature.I am not sure how Co-op would alter the single player experience however.That coul;d be a road-block? But with ratchet in search of Clank through time it appears he will be alone throughout the adventure,at least most of the time. So a full on co-op mode using both ratchet and Clank seems out of the question.However............ Ratchet and other sorted side-kicks he encounters in various areas could be a possibility? Certain characters created for specific areas to help Ratchet out through various areas and obstacles? Anyways,this is a "day 1" for me....I think this will be even better in every department,and that says a lot...I hope for more puzzle solving,platforming,and open ended alternate route options,even more eye popping eye candy,and more new innovative weapons and gadgets,to go along with even more creative and stylish baddies... Bring it on!
First day for me. I love R&C duet.

Im so pissed im gonna be so broke, why does ps3 have to have so many exclusives!
We won't get to use clank for boosted jumps? :(
Have u played ANY of the games in the series? (Some people...) . @Shadow Flare LMAO!! xD Have a bubble.
Confirmed as a full retail release, not another PSN download like Quest for Booty. http://blog.us.playstation....
Brilliant. I wish I could pre-order it now. It is a definite Day one purchase for one of my favourite gaming series out.
omg tooooo many games! I don't have that much money for this year!(I never rent I like to own my games)
2 Yayss! well... it's just another normal day for PS3 gamers.
Yay! I am even happier about this than most. This should let people know, my sources are solid. http://playstationlifestyle... Everyone is so quick to cry foul... If only they knew.
. To the left, to the right, to the sky, and SHAAKE YER BOOTY!
Sev, don't going saying I told you so. Your rumor was just published yesterday. I'd give you credit if you called it out a week ago but just yesterday? Are you serious?!
I love this series. Looking forward esp make it your own animation. I dunno what it is do but it is sound a new feature possible innovation idea.
I would love to see a Jak game announced for PS3
Hells yes. I was always drawn to J&D over R&C. some of my favorite games of the PS2. Edit: I want to get into the Ratchet games though, I might go pick up Tools of Destruction tomorrow, now that I think about it.
R&C:ToD is absolutely fantastic. I've played through 3.5 times already. My favorite in the series (with Up Your Arsenal on PS2 being second). Q4B on the PSN is okay, but probably not worth the $15 in my opinion.
ToD is a great game, just a hell of a lot of fun. QoB is a good game top but it is short but if you're a fan of R&C you'll enjoy it. Also I think QoB is $9.99 atm on the US store and I think that price is well worth it for the 3-5 hours of gaming that you can enjoy over and over if you like.
PS1 = Crash Bandicoot PS2 = Jak & Daxter PS3 = Uncharted This is how ND works. We will see a spin off of Uncharted at the end of the series much like CTR and Jak X, then a completely new IP for the PS4. I like the way they work, always new, fresh, and amazing.
DAY 1 FOR ME!
cant wait to continue the saga from tools of destruction but i really want to see a jack and daxter game on the ps3
I hope that Naughty Dog work on a new jak game after Uncharted 2
at resistance100 yea i love jack and daxter and i really want insomniac to come out with a new ip before Resistance 3 , perhaps the rumored rpg/platformer will become reality , i can only hope
Read post 4.4
Does time travel come into play with the gameplay... o_o
It would be so cool if we got a time gun!
Hope it comes true
This is obviously coming this year. Fall and Winter 09 are going rape lots of wallets. Edit: I just though about the games I'm buying and oh boy it looks like I'll have to ask for a loan. Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time, uncharted 2, CoD: MW2, Bayonetta, Bioshock 2, Tekken 6 and many others I can't think of right now.
cause i think there are too many games for PS3 Sony santa Monica can use the extra Time to improve something^^
Going Commando Up Your Arsenal Size Matters Quest for Booty A Crack in Time
oh crap im out of money for this year, i need more money for games
Can't wait for this game. It needs some multiplayer component or co-op. But multiplayer would be even sweeter.
Normally I'd say I don't care about multiplayer in games like Ratchet & Clank but after playing Resistance 2 and seeing how addictive the competitive modes were, I want multiplayer in this one. I don't know if you ever played Deadlocked but it was really fun.
Up Your Arsenal had a ridiculously fun multiplayer. After R2 I've got a feeling Insomniac is going to give us a co-op and multiplayer mode in this R&C.
I played them all except for size matters.
Hey HDGamer, See this? http://playstationlifestyle... Still think PlayStation LifeStyle is full of it? I posted that last night.
Woooooooooooooooooooh!!! Another great announce. And I hope this time the game will be recognized to be better than Super Mario Galaxy, since Tools already was.
So little money So little time Keep 'em coming Sony & Co. Keep 'em coming! Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time will be a day one for me.
A crack in my wallet
Insomniac should quit making FPS games and just stick to this Franchise. Its freaking Epic. Noone cares about Resistance. Its still in minor league when you compare it to games like Killzone 2, Modern Warfare 2, Operation Flashpoint 2, MAG, and Arma 2. Seriously Insomniac, just stick with platformers and you will see alot more success. Also, get the spyro license again and you will be set for life.
What crack have you been smoking? Resistance games are awesome!
Resistance: Fall of Man and Resistance 2 are fantastic games!
how can you put mag in that list? no gameplay footage has even been shown anyway, i like the resistance franchise and many others do too but i'll admit R2 could have been better all R3 needs is better graphics and a better story, gameplay is more fun and frantact then killzone's strategic flavour
dude are you kidding? resistance is one of the most fun online games. though i do agree what you have to say about them making spyro games again. same can be said about naughty dog and crash bandicoot.
Im sorry, but Resistance 1 and 2 sucked. BTW, I forgot to put add Warhawk, Wolfenstein, Halo ODST, Section 8, Aliens Colonial marines, BBC2, and Borderlands, Also, unannounced games like Warhawk 2, Crytecks new game, and Battlefront 3 and much more, but I dont wanna waste any more time. Dont get me wrong, I love Insomniac, and they do know how to make shooters, but its just not their specialty. Plus the there is too much competition in the market for FPS games. They should stick to what there is a lack of. And thats AAA single player experiences.
im sorry DragonWarrior opinions are opinions , i respect yours but i differ from it at the same time , i play first person shooter games because of Resistance fall of man , it was my first fps game and i completely loved the story , i think its story is where the resistance series really shines , i have others fps (cod4,ut3 and killzone2) none of their stories have reached my interest as resistance have , sure cod4 and killzone2 are really great online games and i think killzone3 story will be amazing but till this day the Resistance story is the best i have played on a fps game , heck i even bought Resistance Retribution just to play the story and im glad Insomniac took the risk to come out with a new ip this generation , i really appreciated that as well as naughty dog and sucker punch , they could easily have made another ratchet , jack or sly game but no they opted for something new and i as a customer appreciated that , heck thats what i expect from sony everytime they launch a new system , NEW GAMES
