The 18 year-old series has become the poster child for what a new generation can do.
unlikely? it's been a PS flagship franchise for three, now four generations
I'd say PS2 it was a big franchise. Insomniacs big game for PS3 was Resistance.
Resistance! please Insomniacs give us Resistance 4 on ps 5!
@ leahcim Agree.
Agreed. Insomniac went on a journey last generation to try different things, but other then that R&C has been a staple franchise for PS for a while now. I think the cool thing is how they wow'd everyone with the dimension shifting in the demo. That was a really good showcase of how the new fast SSD will affect game capabilities and designs.
@Melons; You know that Rachet and clank haven’t been that relevant sense PS2. Even PS3 it was on the back burner of exclusives.
It's been plenty relevant. Ratchet and Clank is Sony's 3rd biggest selling series of all time behind Gran Turismo and Uncharted. Sorry
How is it unlikely? The series is one of the more notable long running first party series Sony has for a reason
If you think it's unlikely, then clearly you have never played a Ratchet & Clank game before or don't know how talented of a studio Insomniac Games is.
The graphics alone serve crow to the naysayers. Show me a better looking game on any platform
If by unlikely you mean obviously yes you are correct
It's leagues ahead of any other gameplay we've seen from next gen, so it stands to reason it would be star of the show.
Only a non gamer would think this is unlikely. The level of ignorance is over 9,000! Personally I'd wait to see more xof miles Morales before jumping to conclusions. Insomniac is an amazing developer.
This game should be renamed Ratchet & Clank & CROW... As this game serves crow to the naysayers. I've just gotten Vampyr on PC via humble bundle choice it looks and runs good but Ratchet & Clank & CROW is 1000 times better looking..
If by "unlikely" you mean critically acclaimed, beloved, tried and true Playstation flagship series then yeah... Very unlikely. Smh.
unlikely? Unlike Sony's competitors, SONY has dozens of mascots for it's platform. Ratchet & Clank is probably the smartest launch exclusive I think they've had in the last few generations because it transcends all age groups. I'm nearing 30, yet I remember playing the first game, this game looks amazing, so I'm picking it up purely off of nostalgia, then you have fans that played every single R&C, they will too get it, then you have kids that will get it because their parents want them to enjoy a kid friendly game... Then you have the people who were introduced to the series through the movie... it's a brilliant movie, literally targeting all demographics instead of a specific niche group.
That headline...smh. R&C was always a star of any Sony line-up, no matter the gen. It's even more weird because author seems to be an industry 'veteran'.
While I like R&C and this entry looks great, Its kinda sad that this is the most talked about game for the most advanced tech consoles ever, even better than PC for the first time. I said it a few time, while we dont know the exact launch line up of either system, I personally think so far it lacks a big must have standout title. To me that is why the Halo:Infinte situation was a shame..It was single handley the biggest title that was supposed to show us why we really needed next gen...they dropped the ball. But hey R&C looks good, so we must settle.
Ratchet and Clank looks like a Pixar movie. Is going to be a good system seller.
It does not look like a Pixar movie..please stop saying that. Did you see Toy Story 4? Incredibles 2? The level of detail and animation is not in the same ballpark not to mention it moves at 30fps. R&C is a superb looking game which could remind you of an early years Pixar movie..but so does Mario: Odyssey and Luigi's mansion 3. Key word is "Remind" you of it. same whimsical character types music styles and art styles..but not close to the same level.
You're literally clueless. Ratchet and Clank has been compared to Pixar movies for years by countless people, organizations, and publications. It DOES look and play like a Pixar movie. https://gfycat.com/thosehea...
Unlikely?... This is the game I am most looking forward to from everything that was announced / shown so far. This series has given me a lot of fun through the years, and I am glad it is getting the royal treatment this gen.
Considering how they've highlighted that game as a demonstration of the PS5's tech, I hardly think it's the "unlikely star" in their line-up. Also, it's a well-established franchise.
Proud to say I love Ratchet and Clank since the very first one game in... 2002. It's a brilliant franchise. Thanks Insomniac for all this fun and these beautiful games. Best gamer memories.
@ Cornelis.. Why do you keep mentioning Halo? It getting delayed seems to be the highlight of your year so far. If you are saying it thinking that I'm like Halo's #1 fan you are soooooo off base it's not funny, while I enjoy almost the entire series , it's not my favorite game/s ..I love Bioshock and metroid primes way more..FP adventures. I like all good games(opinions of course) but absolutely love great 2D games ..so if you wanna hurt me say something like..Hollow Knight sucks!!..😔😔.
Lmfao, the best PS can do is a platformer game... 😂🤣.
