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

50°
309w 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°
320w 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°
349w 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°
352w 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."
 

Ratchet and Clank delayed, demoed

356w ago - Earlier this week, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts nominated Insomniac's widely admired lombax and robot duo in two categories for their PlayStation 3 debut, Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. Though the winners will be announced on October 23, the heat-packing duo, should they win, won't be on hand to accept the award as originally anticipated. Posting to Sony's PlayStation Blog, line producer Greg Phillips has revealed that, yes, Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction has shipped to manufacturers, but it won't arrive on retail shelves until October 30.

Slightly offsetting the bitter side of today's news, Phillips offered an extra helping of sweet with word that a Ratchet and Clank demo should arrive on the PlayStation Network on October 11. An optimized version of the demo shown at this year's E3 Media & Business Summit, the free trial lets players tool around in the futuristic city of Metropolis. (A similar demo is now available to preorderers of the game at GameStop.)

As detailed in GameSpot's previous coverage, Ratchet and Clank's maiden voyage on the PlayStation 3 kicks off a new multi-installment story arc in the 3D platformer. True to past installments, the game features a healthy dose of over-the-top weaponry and tongue-in-cheek...
