Ratchet and Clank takes up 22GB, runs at 60FPS, support 720P and 1080i

Set to run at 60 fps, the title will support both 720p and 1080i. For all you Resistance fans, they promise that all of their upcoming PS3 titles will support 60 fps (and that means Resistance 2 as well). Back to Ratchet and Clank, the title will take up a whopping 22 GB of a 25 GB Blu-ray disc. Even without the localizations, the title couldn't fit on a DVD9.

The story is too old to be commented.

I love R&C games.. and this will be the biggest one.. hope people realize how big it is..

good job insomniac , AMAZING graphics at 60FPS ... just in 9 month of development they made another AAA title..

they are insane!!!

Foliage4813d ago

I have lost a lot of respect for some developers out there, but these guys continue to impress me. You won't find them trying to get customers by flaunting bigger breast sizes on their characters, and their art sense is incredible.

has already got 93/100 from PSM3 (not PSM BTW. PSM 3 is a UK magazine).

shame on x360.

a mediocre game like Lost Odyssey takes up 4 DVDS on x360. Ofcourse cartoon halo 3 with low poly models takes up 1 DVD no wonder.

However a real next gen game like HS/R&C takes up 22gig and thats something to cheer about.

another AAA to ps3's growing list of AAA (resistance,motorstorm,ngs,hea venly sword,warhawk and NOW THIS)

It is a great time to get a ps3

R&C has more poly and colour per char than an entire scene of GAYLO 3.

BTW even OXM brazil has termed HALo 3 as HALO 2 in HD . What a shame?????

@darkequitus ---you are giving MS fa**** a bad name. Just because gaylo3 is a cartoon game with low poly chars doesnt mean that ps3 games would have to look bad like the x360 games.

Just like gears where everything was dark and gloomy since the pixel shaders of xenos are too weak to add colours to that game

darkequitus4813d ago

Is R&C not carttony? You should really think before you post.

Why is it a shame the a PS3 game has a good review. It would not matter to a true game. Only a half-wit fanboy like yourself. You trolling give PS3 owners a bad name. That includes me.

Why even bring up dvd9, why not just talk about how amazing the game is going to be. There was never any concern before about this nonsense. The ps3 doesn't have to worry about using up blu-ray discs as of yet. Why even mention something like that.

That comment was unnecessary and flamey. R&C looks to me like it's going to be a great game. Enough with the Flaming comments. The gaming industry has changed in a negative way, before it was just about the games and everything. Now they have to validate the use of the hardware, and that's just making the industry more b!tchy. Less talk about hardware and more talk about gameplay innovations.


SonySoldiers4813d ago (Edited 4813d ago )

Why do these idiots still buy broken US products?? Switch to Japanase technology... YES THE PS3!!!!!! The most advanced console ever known to mankind, runs perfectly at 60FPS and HD 1080P!!!!

Halo 3 will not be able to last like the power of PLAYSTATION 3!

Remember it's made in Japan.

Snukadaman4813d ago

Just like how they mentioned HS has 2 gigs worth of music...just so blu-ray seems like its really glad you pointed that one questioned rachet and clank too not run at 60fps but i guess since the recent games it has too be mentioned with every ps3 game now..which is quite sad considering the ps3 is suppose too be the better console.

w57cpd4812d ago

In the case of the quality of a videogame disc size does not matter if you think about. The problem with Sony is that they boasts about how much
more powerful the PS3 is over the 360. Instead of comparing BD and DVD9, Sony should be worried about MS position in the marketplace. They are allowing MS to overtake their business. With the 360 attachment rate at 6games/system developers would be crazy to overlook it. For developers, more money is made by releasing a game on the 360 at least now anyway.

Evil0Angel4811d ago

although LOST ODDESY take up to 4 disk(around 70hr of game play) each disck will give you more horse to play than(HS+resistance+motorstorm) combained.

SlappyMcTaint4807d ago

Well, if that's your thing, then go for it -ram that sucker in there, real deep-like.

makes sense. From the previews and everything you can see they are truly packing their game with fun stuff. I guess it will come in a single layer BD.

[edit] thats Sony who made those dubious promises, its not Insomniac's fault.

It's not even a year old, mate.

If you want a PS3 game playing in 1080p and 60 frames per second, however, pick up Ninja Gaiden Sigma.

EDIT: 1. My avatar is from a painting of a character from a famous fantasy series.

2. There will be more 1080p games in the future, when development on the console improves.

3. 4D gaming is still possible. Perhaps we'll see a title with it soon.

Azures4813d ago

don't lie tom, u have no friends. ur the 360 version of nasim.

Sonics0204813d ago

Another Sony flop? The only flop was Lair. Heavenly Sword was no flop, it was just a little short. So far all of Sony's games this year are very good. Resistance, Warhawk, Motorstorm, God of War 2, and Heavenly Sword.

DarkArcani4813d ago

Just in case you never heard of Ratchet&Clank or Insomniac for that matter, They have yet to make a game that has flopped. And this is from the PS1 days. They are a very reliable dev team kind of like Epic. They just don't seem capable of putting out crap (like EA).

LeonSKennedy4Life4813d ago

Look at Level 5's ratings...on like Wikipedia.

They have NEVER gotten a rating below a 7 and a lot were 9's and 10's.

I had no idea they were that amazing!

Now, Insomniac has NEVER made a bad game either. Even a company like Square Enix can't say that! (Of course, they've been around a LOT longer.)

Insomniac, Sucker Punch, Naughty Dog...all of them have NEVER made a bad game. They're all Sony exclusives too. Well...and Team Ico...

rowdy 14812d ago

Was a good game. I beat it. I really enjoyed the story.

GIJeff4813d ago

the first R&C game i play. I'm really exited about this one. These types of games are lacking now days with all the shooters...yawn. 22GB geez. insomniac for the win. Resistance was/is awesome. 40 player online chaos rules.

tatical4813d ago

I never played Ratchet and Clank before, I mostly played my Xbox last gen. I'm totally getting this for sure though :)
