129 9

As many of you know, things are heating up here as we’re approaching the launch of Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time for PS3 next week! Today IGN ran the first review of Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time and you can check it out here.

Also to celebrate the launch, you’ve been invited to Insomniac Games’ Community Day as well as the PlayStation Home space for Ratchet & Clank. We’ve even dropped the price of Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty!

And the hits keep coming, as I’m happy to announce today that this Thursday on the PlayStation Store, you’ll be able to download the first of TWO Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time demos and we’re inviting you to check out the Clank Demo.

In this demo, you’ll take get to take control of Clank as he explores the Great Clock learning more about his past and his new time-based abilities that you’ll need to utilize to solve puzzles and defeat some of Dr. Nefarious’ minions. This is some brand new gameplay that Insomniac Games is introducing to the series and we all hope you enjoy it!

Details on the second demo, the Ratchet Demo, will be coming in the next few days, so keep an eye out! In the meantime, check out these sweet videos showing off some of Ratchet’s new arsenal and giving you more information about the Constructo line of weapons!

And this week, Insomniac Games Creative Director Brian Allgeier will be stopping by PlayStation.Blog for a PlayStation Eye Chat. So make sure to ask your questions in the comments section!

  • I think it’s awesome how they brought Nefarious back, he’s always been my favourite bad guy. Can’t wait to fight him again!

  • I have a quick question.

    Will there be unlockable weapons for having Tools of Destruction saves and additional weapons for Quest for Booty?

  • I don’t mind 720p so long as there is highly detailed, sharp textures and effective use of shaders. sub-720p is unacceptable to me at this point, though.

    What bugs me is that most of these games still output Dolby Digital; with all the space on Bluray, all these disc-based games should have lossless audio. On top of this, it should be 24-bit. 16-bit lossy audio is just sad, and I’ve returned a couple of games that sounded particularly bad.

  • Nice i can’t wait :P

  • Thanks for all your hard work Insomniac! Will be sure to pick up the game as soon as possible.

  • does this one have online function such as co-op… coz i want to stick with it more than just play through the story mode.

  • @101, You poor poor baby. I really hope this gets fixed for you, we wouldn’t want you returning anymore games now would we!

  • Is there any chance that Insomniac will return to Resistance 2 and create a patch or new content once Ratchet and Clank is out?

    This is a great game but hasn’t gotten any attention since spring.

  • I didn’t really care for the Clank sections from Tools of Destruction. In fact I didn’t even finish the game because those parts seem to break up the action and just weren’t fun to me.

    When I heard that Clank would have a bigger single player role in Crack in Time, I pretty much gave up on this new one.

    I will definitely check out the demos but from watching some of the vids I just don’t think this game is for me.

    You guys have a great track record though, keep it up!

  • Now that you guys are done with Rachet & Clank Future: Crack in time. Can you please patch the first one with Trophy support?

    Day one purchase for me.

  • No chance on geting all of the older ratchet and clank on blueray like we got with GOW collection. I think Sony should make it since they don’t want to add BC to the PS3.I would buy it I missed out on a couple of them. Thank you Insomniac Games I have yet to find a game I don’t like made by U love them all.

  • Looking forward to the demos. Unfortunately the sale will have to wait until Christmas or later. I promise it’ll happen. Promise!

  • Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction is one of the reasons why I got off the 360 and onto the PS3. You just don’t find games like Ratchet and Clank anywhere but on the PS3 – it’s great!

  • I really like the R&C series… but I’ve only played the first one and I would like to play all the other ones before I play this one. And its not easy finding these games at one store. Maybe if i do or they offer a collectors pack i will pick up the R&C future series

  • Quick Question. How many total weapons will there be? I would like an exact number if possible.

  • and another one, Can you custmize the color your armor has?

  • resistance 3

  • why am i banned

  • A job well done!
    This game looks amazing! Thank you Insomniac
    for making such good games this is the only game that could come close to Uncharted 2 in amazinginess

  • I have this baby reserved, I can’t wait to play it!!! :D

  • @50
    yup

  • oh maaaaan!!!!!!!!! it’s been such a looooong wait! it’s almost here!

    with Ratchet & Uncharted i’m good for the rest of the year!

  • Question 70 – Happened to me too. Simply delete Home from the XMB, then install it again. You will still have all of your downloaded data.

  • I know that game is going to be rendered in 720p, but what about 480p like ToD?

  • at what time does the download become available on the east coast?

  • I looked, but I don’t see it!!!

  • when I came home from school I was hoping that the demo came today and when I checked the store, I couldn’t find it. :( Can someone tell me what’s going on? :(

  • I guess something happened. It is Thursday and no demo that I could find. Can’t wait to try it out. Bought the Booty game shorty after it came out, too bad I didn’t wait for the discount price now.

  • Yes! PS store update! Downloading the demo right now… but it’s really huge(2404MB) and my internet connection isn’t great. Probably be done by morning. Still, finally get to play Crack in Time. :)

  • Just played the Demo, and for all the non-believers, it is time to believe that a clank segment can (and is) as challenging and rich as any Ratchet segment.

    Well done Insomniac (give everyone a hug for me please)

  • just played it

    IT WAS AWSOME! slow time is amazing feature and was very usefull versus the boss

  • Csn’t wait for this game!

  • why does it look like they didnt compress it properly?

  • When is the Ratchet demo coming out ??

  • Hmmm…i don’t remember leaving any post before…SO, this is my first :]
    But i was wondering if there will be a Ratchet and Jak crossover?

    The Jak skin in Deadlocked was such a huge tease D;
    Or at least a new updated Jak skin would be very nice for now.

  • why cant you guys make the first 3 ratchet n clank in ps3 format. i would defenitly buy it GUARANTEED

  • Will it be coming out for PSP or PSP2?

  • It would be awesome if this game’s soundtrack was made available on iTunes ! :)
