Most remakes are designed specifically for the long-time fans of a franchise, but this particular remake might actually cater to younger gamers, too.
I think that this game & movie could appeal to longtime fans and newcomers to the franchise.
Exactly it's going to take the movie to introduce the franchise to new fans. Hopefully it works for Ratchet. These type of animated movies usually go on to gross over $100m at the box office, which translates into about 10m people seeing the movie. Let's say the parent to kid ratio is 1:1, so 5m kids go see it, that's a potential 100k - 500k (3% - 10% RoS) bonus sales for Ratchet, as well as some potential PS4 sales as well.
Agreed r&c having a movie is great marketing for the game already. With fans from back in the ps2 days wanting to play it and the movie introducing it to people new to gaming will really help add to the sales of this game. It's looking really beautiful like a Pixar movie and knowing insomniac this will be the r&c we know and love. This is a day one game. I'm not even hype, I just want some R&C fun...something awsome I can enjoy before I get to losing my life to uncharted. Gunna be a masterful 2 weeks for ps4 owners.
I think so. Ratchet and clank is a pretty big name at this point. Parents who are looking for games that aren't super violent for their kids may recognise the game. And God knows all the parents who are gamers will be getting this for their kids (but really for themselves :p ). Plenty of opportunity for this to gain a new audience.
Ratchet & Clank looks absolutely gorgeous on PS4 it's insane
I don't know, but it will definitely attract me! Good to see some fair pricing going on too.
sure it will, there is a lack of games for the younger audiences these days, tend to be limited to lego or skylanders, but with ratchet and clank it is playable by kids but fun for adults too.
It's (for me) the first PS4 exclusive I've genuinely been looking forward to playing. Bloodbourne was never going to be my thing - way too 'hardcore', and while TLOU is a good game, I played (and completed it) originally only last gen via PS3. It's fair to say only MGSV and PES 2016 are the only games I've truly enjoyed on my PS4 to date...thank God for Nintendo this gen - and every gen for that matter.
Day one for me! I usually wait for price drops but not for this game. Ive been waiting for a good plattform game on PS4 and the price is right. Take my money!!!!
I hope so, as the platformer will FOREVER be my fav. genre in gaming.
I couldn't get into tools of destruction I'm unsure about getting this one.. A man will give it a shot nonetheless .. I hope it isn't a breeze.. -- xoxo
Im guessing out of the growing ps4 install base of over 35+ million consumers at least 2 million buy this game including myself. Maybe even more as its one of the biggest out 6 exclusives to launch just 2 weeks before the gargantuan of exclusives uncharted 4... I just wish it didnt launch on the same day as ds3... My wallet is going to be 😢
if R&C tools of destruction managed to bring newcomers to the franchise, then this game will also do
This game looks really good from what Ive seen and ts only 40$. I do miss the crude humor from the ps2 games though.
