YungXclusive2K93518d ago

I Knew it cause i bought quest for booty, i just wanna see some gameplay now

xztence3518d ago

so I assume this is a FULL game, or is it another expansion of sorts on psn? eitherway very good news.

arika3518d ago

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!

SasanovaS7773518d ago

hell yea, its on and popin

YungXclusive2K93518d ago

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

sonarus3518d ago

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

Bnet3433518d ago

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.

jahcure3518d ago

Multiplayer? Why exactly? Have u played ANY of the games in the series? Nothing about this game screams multiplayer

lordgodalming3518d ago (Edited 3518d ago )

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. :)

Why o why3518d ago

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

Sev3518d ago

Should I say I told ya so?


Please don't question my sources any longer.

Shadow Flare3518d ago

Sev, what's your source's favourite cheese?

Sevir043518d ago

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

Freak of Nature3518d ago

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!

hay3518d ago

First day for me. I love R&C duet.

xabmol3518d ago

@Shadow Flare


Have a bubble.

Confirmed as a full retail release, not another PSN download like Quest for Booty.

cayal3517d ago

Brilliant. I wish I could pre-order it now. It is a definite Day one purchase for one of my favourite gaming series out.

Sev3518d ago


I am even happier about this than most.

This should let people know, my sources are solid.


Everyone is so quick to cry foul... If only they knew.

xabmol3518d ago


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?!

iceatcs3518d ago

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.

s8anicslayer3518d ago

I would love to see a Jak game announced for PS3

xionpunk3518d ago (Edited 3518d ago )

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.

lordgodalming3518d ago

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.

Karum3518d ago

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.

xabmol3518d ago

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.
