Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time Offers Pre-Rendered Graphics

100°
262w ago - Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time finally brings the graphical quality of pre-rendered CGI to video game consoles.

Insomniac's hard work has finally produced CGI quality graphics rendered in real-time on the PlayStation 3. Sure, it might not quite be at Wall-E level yet, but Toy Story 2 quality pre-rendered graphics have definately been reached.

To quote: Insomniac Games, who have produced more games for the PS3 than any other developer (Resistance 1, Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction, Resistance 2) brings their fourth game, Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time (or what they like to call Clock Blockers) with an even more polished engine.

The pre-defined animation and limited scope of the cutscenes mean that Insomniac can pull more out of the PS3 for their real-time rendered cutscenes in A Crack in Time, though the gameplay graphics are just as spectacular.

The latest gameplay footage of A Crack in Time video is below also:

Video: Ratchet And Clank: A Crack In Time PS3 Teaser Trailer

250°
278w ago - Insomniac's next game is Ratchet And Clank Future: A Crack In Time, making 2009 the fourth year of leapfrogging between the Resistance and Ratchet And Clank franchises.

The game was announced via press release during GDC, but game assets were nowhere to be found. Thankfully we haven't had to wait long before this teaser trailer, available below.

The trailer doesn't show a lot, though there is a lot of narration about the nature of time involved. We're hoping there's a sufficiently mind-bendy-time-paradoxy storyline in the final game.

While most of the visuals in the trailer revolve around various pipes and cogs, we do get a glimpse of a mysterious pocketwatch, as seen below, and an elderly lombax.





Are those Ratchet's parents? Who's the flying, growly voiced lombax? We're looking forward to finding out this autumn.

Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty Blu-ray Cancelled in UK

100°
307w ago - Update: The Blu-ray will still be released in other European countries, but not the United Kingdom. Additionally, Insomniac Games' Community Manager James Stevenson has provided a reason at games forum NeoGAF.

"It's partially due to broadband penetration being strong in the UK, therefore it wasn't seen as needed". He also mentions that Ireland will receive Blu-ray copies at retail, if you're really craving for a hard copy.

A Sony Europe representative confirmed to BritishGaming.co.uk that Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty will no longer be heading to United Kingdom retail stores on a Blu-Ray disc.

The 3-4 hour epilogue was released on the Playstation Store on August 21st, but was initially announced for a full retail release on September 12th.

After noticing that no British stores had the game for pre-order, we contacted Sony and received this email:

"R&C: QFB won't be released in the UK on Blu-ray I'm afraid."

Quest for Booty is still available on Playstation Network for £9.99
