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

100°
370w 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."

50°
370w ago - Now you can judge the game for yourself.

Today Sony announced The Eye of Judgment, its fantasy card game that makes use of the PlayStation Eye, has shipped to retail outlets. Developed with the input of Wizards of the Coast, makers of Magic: The Gathering, Judgment allows players to combat opponents around the world through the PlayStation Network.

"Wizards of the Coast brings experience and credibility to the table as the market leader in the collectable card game industry," said Jeff Reese, director, software marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America. "Combined with the immense power of PS3 and the new PlayStation Eye camera, we collectively looked to deliver a revolutionary spin on the trading card game genre. The ability to visually interact with cards built around a new franchise will bring in core trading card fans and video gamers alike."

The Eye of Judgment comes bundled with the Eye for $69.99, and includes the battle mat, a camera stand, a starter deck of 30 cards, and an eight card booster pack. Additional booster packs can be purchased from retail stores for $3.99. Sony is planning to expand the card game on a regular basis.

Minor Glitch Halts Ratchet & Clank PS3, Simple Workaround Solves Issue

50°
370w ago - A minor bug in North American copies of Insomniac's Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, which shipped to some stores today and comes packed with the rumble-enabling 1.94 firmware update, may prevent players from starting the title, depending on the contents of their PlayStation 3's hard drive.

Much like Insomniac's previous PS3 effort, Resistance: Fall of Man, Ratchet & Clank mandates a brief setup procedure that copies some files onto the console's HDD. However, an unexpected glitch within the game causes it to read the hard drive as full and refuse to install under certain conditions.

"We recently discovered a bug on the US version of Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction that some of you may encounter the first time you boot the game," Insomniac community manager James Stevenson told Shacknews. "With specific amounts of free space on your drive, you may see a screen that tells you have insufficient space to create game data even though there is plenty of free space on your drive."

Fortunately, the workaround is a relatively simple one. "When this occurs, either delete or add about 500MB of data to your hard drive and the problem will go away," wrote Stevenson. While this may seem a lofty chore to some, the abundance of downloads in the online PlayStation Store means that...
 

PS3 Firmware v1.94 Adds DualShock3 Support

50°
370w ago - The newest PlayStation 3 system software update to version 1.94 adds firmware-level support for the upcoming rumble-enabled DualShock3 controller. Though the update is not yet available for download, it's bundled with Insomniac's Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, the first retail game with built-in support for the DualShock3.

By pressing the middle PS button on a PS3 controller, the DualShock3's rumble can be toggled on or off from the Controller Setting menu in-game. Listed as the "vibration function," rumble will obviously only be felt with DualShock3 controllers and not the rumble-less Sixaxis.

Sony plans to release the DualShock3 in Japan this November, with the peripheral coming to the U.S. and Europe this spring. Until then, check out the Shack's list of game's that will feature or be updated to feature DualShock3 rumble support.
