10-12 hours game length for 40$ is pretty good.

I am pretty excited to play this.

I pray that Naughty Dog looks at this game and try to make Jak 4 close to it. With their wizardly skills in the visual department, it could be one the best looking games in the history.

It is more than 12 hours as they said the game is longer than the previous Ratchet and Clank game Into The Nexus, which took around 10 to 12 hours to complete.

deadpoolio3161226d ago (Edited 1226d ago )

Into the Nexus was like a 2-3hr game....I think your thinking of Crack in time...Nexus was definitely short.

pivotplease1226d ago (Edited 1226d ago )

I thought Quest for Booty was 2 to 3 hours because it was 15 dollars and Into the Nexus was like double that because it was 30 or something.

Edit: Yeah that's right. How long to Beat has it at about a six hour average time to beat. Only 11 hours for completionist. I wish this was a 20 hour R&C game because it looks amazing.

littlezizu1226d ago

@deadpool, my mistake, mixed up time of crack in time with into the nexus.

And it's fun to play new game + which insomniac has always included in this series, so even more play time!

@ Rashada

it would been nice if insomniac made this game from scratch instead of combinding all4one , parts of QFB, parts of into the nexus, parts of crack in time,parts of tools of destruction. one gun from each game added .

what i've seem so far flame thrower and Negotiator, and New pixilator gun look Beautiful.

"We’re 1080p/30fps… our goal was to match or exceed the fidelity of CG animated movies. When we first started we realized that was actually possible with PS4. Pretty exciting."

Thank the lack of sales for ACiT for this...

Eonjay1226d ago

This is very interesting. So according to this, they purposely go 30FPS in order to max out graphics. And they don't feel that it makes any difference to their bottom line.

Pretty honest IMO

rainslacker1226d ago (Edited 1226d ago )

Framerate hardly makes any difference in sales. It's more for bickering on internet forums. Graphics quality on the other hand is much more tangible,and while I know it's kind of messed up, graphics quality still matters to many consumers. More often than not, the vast majority of people wouldn't sit there and focus on the frame rate while playing a game. They may notice its not as smooth, but that's about it.

Kind of been that way since the beginning of console gaming, as the best looking games generally always sold well.

I don't get why they do this.. 720p 60fps > 1080p 30fps

MasterCornholio1226d ago (Edited 1226d ago )

Because they would have to downgrade the assets as well.

Dropping the resolution doesn't guarantee a solid 60FPS.

With the way the game is looking I doubt anyone would want Insomniac to downgrade the game to satisfy a minority.

Peace_Love_and_FPS1226d ago

I think there should be more options on consoles. Let us choose: 720p 60fps or 1080p 30fps!

Seriously, can't argue with choice like that, then we don't have huge arguments over it and they can max their sales.

UltraNova1226d ago (Edited 1226d ago )


You are right, but I'm sure they dont want that extra man hours to be spent on optimizing a different output, after all this is console gaming where the name of the game is coding for a fixed set of assets,hence why console gaming is so sought after and profitable.

jcnba281226d ago


So what you're saying is the developers care more about graphic fidelity than the performance of how the game runs?

That's exactly why I prefer 720p 60fps over 1080p 30fps.

It's really sad but this is how most devs think. improving graphics just sells better than improving gameplay.

Peace_Love_and_FPS1226d ago

Frame rate* although some do sacrifice gameplay for graphics as well.

_LarZen_1226d ago

That's what we get for playing games on the cheapest possible hardware for AAA gaming.

It sure looks like it'll be the Ratchet and Clank experience I've dreamed of.

Eonjay1226d ago

So by different experience they mean not this:
but rather this:

Yup that quite the upgrade.
