  • love the box art but i have a question will there be any collector edition for this game only if you know anything and can confirm it please tell if you cant then ill just wait for any news that comes up.

  • I hope these get offered later to everyone.

    Its all about the retailers these preorder campaigns, it often amounts to nothing more than a corporate game of who’s picked for dodge ball first-vs-last. It is all simply designed to make us choose one retailer over another, who I guarantee pays very well for their rank in this. The only manner this directly affects the consumer is usually dening us allot or at least SOME of the games perceived content. If its available in game or later as DLC I am fine with it.

    But this whole retailer/item specific pre order incentive model just needs to DIE.

  • Amazing boxart here :)

  • Three pages of comments and I can’t help but notice that there’s still no answer to the question of whether or not the preorder incentives from the other retailers will eventually be made available as either in-game unlockables or DLC. I’d hate to think I had to preorder from each retailer just to get all of the extras..

  • By the way, the box art is great! Although, the GIANT 3D logo kinda spoils what is otherwise EPIC boxart! Why not go with the version that the EU gets; still there but not intrusive on the awesome art?

  • Sweet boxart! Sheepinator FTW…

  • ClassicSpyroFan

    sweet box art, and sweet wepons, I love the pyro-blaster from tod, nice to see it come back!!! day one buy for me!!

  • @104 shamanjoe

    Of course they’ll be available for everyone eventually, but they can’t create exclusives and then say “Oh, but if you wait, you can get everything later.” There would be no incentive to creating the exclusives in the first place. It’s just business, man.

  • As a long time Insomniac fan, I was wondering if you were going to do something along the lines of “The Sly Collection” Like how they took their PS2 games, remastered them, and released them on one disc with achievements. That would make my year.

  • Preorder bonuses sound like more normal, unlockable content, just like last time.


  • im backkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so first thing first is there a nyc event coming up?second we need a online co op demo!!!!!!!!!!! third a rachtet and clank collection for the ps2 and ps3 game each at 40 dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!fouth next time have another develeoper work on on playstation move heros last one sucked why didnt you guys do it?

  • Awesome box art. Defiantly going to pick this up. Me and my brother have been big Ratchet and Clank fans since the very beginning so the thought of playing together brings a smile to my face. Also funny thing is he’s 22 and I’m 19!!! These games are great for all ages!!

  • (And I, too, would love a R&C collection. Put trophies in it and I’m a preorder.)

  • now where capcom i always win something from their blog post lmao i remember being hated because i kept on wining

  • Meh…we’ll see…it looks like it could be fun but doesn’t make the best first impression…maybe more of a play and see kinda game. I have faith in Insomniac though, so I’m sure it’s at least fun.

  • I hate when different stores have different bonuses unless theres a collector’s edition that comes with all of the bonuse (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)

  • i though this was out already…

  • Will these pre-order items eventually get released on the PS Store for free, unlike the A Crack in TIme items that were promised but never released?

  • @ 117 the items in A Crack in Time were all unlockable through the game so they dont need to be released on the store

  • to everyone asking about whether or not these pre-order bonuses will be avalible in the game the answer is YES. all pre-order bonuses for this game will unlockable in the game, this is just early access to it if you pre-order it. just like in ACIT all the pre-order bonuses are in the game, its just if you want early access to it or not.

  • @109 i totally agree with you

  • They suck

  • @44 – blueDragon666, I totally agree. i love the Ratchet series but this whole co-op thing is a turn off. I hate co-op, but i guess that’s just me.

    Also, Why is Mr. Zurkon only availble via pre-order? he was in the other games without a pre-order, That’;s kinda messed up.

    ..Hope R3 MP gets changed to 24 or 32 players cause 16 looks so, soo, empty and unattractive :\

  • I own and have played to death each Ratchet and Clank game. I will be disappointed if I can’t get every weapon shown above. How can you guys expect me to choose between Mr. Zurkon and the Sheepinator? Oh yes I will own this game. My son cant wait to finally play Ratchet and Clank WITH daddy!

  • THE RYHNO 4 WAS MY FAVORITE it would shoot up in the sky and come down with multiple colorful missles and destroy absolutely everything that moved ohhhh so much destruction

  • legendary_mantis

    Looking great! Insomniac, you’re making me choose between 2 great games!
    Dark Souls and Ratchet And Clank All 4 One!
    I’ll probably end up pre-ordering A4O though. Gotta have my R&C story fix!

    Also does this take place before or after the comics?
    I have the R&C games organized and the comics are in the collection.
    I’d like to know if possible.

  • @Christian, Can you please let me know if this is going to be similar to “little big planet” ie: you must use co-op for curtain things (hollocrons, gold bolts) I’m not a big “co-op” fan and I would still want to complete the game with 100% on my own. Pretty please w/ a cherry on top?

    • Cristian Cardona

      You can completely play this game on your own and enjoy the experience. We’ll have more info on the single-player experience very soon!

  • ^ – @Cristian – sorry mate

  • Awwwwwwsome. Will it have an online Co-Op. I still will plan to purchace it anyways. Not Pre order

    • Cristian Cardona

      Online and offline! And you can pre order – it’s ok to let us know you intend on buying it ;)

  • My wife and I are salivating in anticipation over this game. She keeps asking when the new Ratchet & Clank game is coming out. Weve been fans since I gave the origninal a try maybe two years ago and weve purchased every installment since then. With co-op, we can finally hunt those gold bolts together!

  • Is this game move-compatible or move-only?


  • OKAY SONY! You gave us a 30 day free (whatever) and downloads and you shutdown the PS store.
    Are you waiting for the 30 day to slip by or you got some other explanation?

  • I wonder if there is a way to get all 4 preorder mods

  • Honestly, I can’t say this is something I care much about. I thought the Playstation and Xbox had moved past the realm of Mascot Characters. Nintendo’s really the only one who can pull it off. The two real next-gen consoles are too sophisticated for things like this.

    Don’t get me wrong–I loved Crash Bandicoot and Spyro and everything, but once we started to get into the world of HIGH DEFINITIONNNNNNNN and realism, these games are a major turnoff for me.

    Kudos to everyone who is excited though, glad you’re able to be. :) I envy that!

  • I have all the ratchet and clank games.I wish I could get ratchet and clank all 4 one. Awesome cover by the way.

  • no one cares about what these games are doing for gamers whens the store going to be up!

  • Is their any possible way we can get all of these weopons in one game?

  • I can’t wait for the new Ratchet & Clank, as I was basically raised on it. No, seriously. I have EVERY R&C game for ps2 and ps3 and 2 for the psp. Call me a freak, but it’s my dad’s fault for getting the first game when I was 7. :)

  • People, these are just EARLY ACCESS codes. Search on YouTube for ‘Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One™ Pre-Order Preview’ and it says that’s what it is. You can get the weapons in the game without preordering. You just won’t get them right away. It’s basically the same as R&CF: A Crack in Time’s preorder bonuses. [though one of those had bolts if I remember right]

    So you won’t be missing anything. This post should have said that though.

  • Derp, spaced the fact the video is posted in this blog.

  • no you got the release all wrong, it’s 1 day after my birthday…should be the 17th so I can make someone buy it for me!!! :)

  • I’m a big fan of Ratchet & Clank series…I’ve been playing it since i was like 6…I got every single game of the series….But after seing this…I don’t think i’m gonna enjoy playing Ratchet and Clank again…I was expecting something like Ratchet & Clank A Crack In Time…The game was perfect…Anyways does it have a good story, like the other r&c games?…Or it’s like Heroes On The Move?…

    • Cristian Cardona

      It definitely has a full story like all the other Ratchet & Clank titles before it. You won’t be disappointed =)

  • *I’m a big fan of *the* Ratchet & Clank series.*

  • i want bust a groove to come back as a ps classic… please

  • Nice, it comes out on my birthday. Cant wait!

  • will there be online competitive play like deathmatch and iron lombax.that was awesome from size matters online.

  • it’s a nice game :D

  • @147 Agreed

  • This is the one game of the year i wont pass up on.
