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

Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty uses 3.2GB not 2.3GB HDD Space

310w ago - It looks as if PS3 owners better clear some more of their hard drives as Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty is actually 3.2GB and not 2.3GB as gaming Web sites previously reported.

To quote: As we reported yesterday, Ratchet & Clank: Quest For Booty hits PSN this Thursday with a Blu-ray release following in September. Look out for our review later in the week.

Better start making room on your hard drive PS3 gamers, Ratchet & Clank: Quest For Booty is actually 3.2GB and not 2.3GB as previously reported.

We had a bit of a shock when we went to download our review copy earlier today - the 3181MB download weighs in at around 30% larger than we had been expecting.

Just to clarify, we've downloaded the European version. It's possible that the US version may still weigh in at 2.3GB because of the increased language support needed for the EU release, but we've not yet had any official confirmation.
 

Rumor: New Ratchet & Clank Title Slated for PSN

50°
321w ago - It has yet to be officially announced, but apparently it's real. A logo for an all-new Ratchet offering entitled "Ratchet & Clank: En Busca del Tesoro," which roughly translates to "In Search of Treasure," has appeared on the pages of the Spanish Web site linked above via Macrike.

Last March, a leaked SCEE PSN release schedule made mention of "Ratchet Quest For Booty." We're inclined to believe that this is the same game.

Now to wait for Insomniac's inevitable announcement. :P
 

Graphics of new ‘Ratchet & Clank’ game rival look of movies

50°
351w ago - When one thinks of the leaders in computer animation, a few familiar film studios come to mind, namely DreamWorks and Pixar.

Traditional movie companies like Fox and Warner Bros. have also made successful forays into animated fare.

Video games, however, have rarely been known for the artistry of their animation, for two reasons.

First, while they almost inevitably fall short, most video games of any genre try to look realistic – realistic cars, realistic football players, even plausibly "realistic" dragons and aliens.

But what defines great animated characters like Mickey Mouse and Shrek is not any notion of realism, but rather an exaggerated yet unthreatening expressiveness. That is one reason so few of the classic animated characters are human: anthropomorphized animals give the artist much more creative leeway.

Just as important, in those cases when designers have gone for an animated look, technology has simply not allowed games to come anywhere near the fluidity, detail and depth possible in a noninteractive film. Not to mention that game companies often undermine even brilliant graphics with lackluster voice acting.

All that changed this month with the release of Insomniac Games' "Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction" for Sony's...
 

Ratchet and Clank scores 9.4/10 from IGN; Best PS3 game ever?

100°
353w ago - IGN has scored R&C Future: Tools of Destruction a generous but well deserved 9.4/10, the highest scoring PS3 game to date, as IGN put it whether your a long time fan or noobie to the Ratching and the Clanking you'll love Tools of Destruction!

"Whether you're new to R&C or someone who has played them all, Ratchet and Clank Future deserves to be in your library no matter what. Not only has it supplanted Going Commando as the best title in the franchise, it's also the best game of any series on the PlayStation 3 thus far -- and that's saying a lot when you're up against Oblivion, Ninja Gaiden, Warhawk and Insomniac's very own previous effort, Resistance: Fall of Man."
