30w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has confirmed today that Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault will officially be out this November 27th for $19.99.
To quote: The 10th Anniversary of Ratchet & Clank is coming up next month, and it's been a lot of fun this year reliving the memories from our original PS2 games in the recently released Ratchet & Clank Collection.
We also had a blast playing the beta of Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault with all of you earlier this fall. Since then, we've gotten a flood of e-mails, tweets and Facebook posts asking when you can get back to exploring the battlefield and defending your base in FFA.
We're happy to announce Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault will be available on November 27th on the PlayStation Store and at retail.
That's right, you asked and we listened: Full Frontal Assault will be available as a retail copy for those of you who love physical copies of your games! Both the download and retail versions support cross-buy as well, so your purchase gets you both the game on PS3 and a digital copy for PlayStation Vita.
The other big question we've gotten a lot is "How much will the game cost?" As you know, Full Frontal Assault is a "fun-size" project that's similar in scope to Ratchet &...
40w ago - Insomniac Games Production Director Shaun McCabe has announced today alongside a video that Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault unzips both PS Vita support and a Competitive Mode with details below!
To quote: Hey everyone, I'm Shaun McCabe, production director at Insomniac Games' North Carolina studio.
Since this is my first PS.Blog post, I'll briefly introduce myself. I joined the company in 2003 during the development of Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal, but I've been an Insomniac fan going all the way back to Disruptor on the PlayStation.
As you may have heard, yesterday we announced that our dynamic duo's latest adventure, Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault, is coming to both PS3 and PS Vita!
Working closely with our friends at Tin Giant, who are helping bring the game to PS Vita, we're delivering full cross-play and cross-save support. So, the ever-popular, "Well, I'd love to be playing Ratchet & Clank right now, but am stuck at the bus stop/office/police station/etc." can no longer apply.
Not only will the game feature cross-play and cross-save, but it's also part of a super-cool promotional offer where anyone who purchases Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault for PS3 via PlayStation...
44w ago - Following up on yesterday's update, Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman is back with the full monty on Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault today!
To quote: Though fundamentally a third-person shooter, the Ratchet & Clank series has rarely shied from bold genre experimentation: witness the progressive competitive and co-op modes of Ratchet: Deadlocked, the brain-busting temporal puzzles of A Crack in Time, even the four-player feuding of last year's All 4 One.
But with Full Frontal Assault, the storied series will undergo what is perhaps its most sweeping metamorphosis yet, creating what developer Insomniac Games is calling "action tower defense." Yep, Ratchet's going all PixelJunk Monsters on us.
This is a logical, some might say inevitable, evolution when you consider the series' gameplay trajectory, which despite its myriad twists and turns has focused squarely on two core elements: ludicrously powerful weaponry and freakish alien foes.
In other words, the raw ingredients for a mean tower defense game. "One of the things we wanted to explore with Full Frontal Assault was large, sprawling battlefields," Production Director Shaun McCabe told...
44w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has announced today that Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault is adding a Tower-Defense Twist for PSN fans!
To quote: Hey everyone, James from Insomniac Games here. Our team of veteran Insomniacs in North Carolina has been hard at work developing Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault, and today I'm happy to share new details surrounding Ratchet & Clank's latest PSN adventure.
Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault heads back to the classic camera, weapons and third-person Ratchet gameplay that the series is known for, while adding a new tower defense element that will have you building and defending a base against invasions using your ultimate Ratchet & Clank arsenal.
This new twist, added to the classic Ratchet gameplay, brings a whole new level of strategy and decision-making to Full Frontal Assault. You'll want to make sure your Hoverboots are laced up and ready as you race to defeat your enemy while keeping your base secure. Wait, Hoverboots don't have laces...
In Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault, our heroes face a new nemesis - one who has a nasty surprise planned for Captain Qwark.
You'll be able to choose between playing as Ratchet, Clank, or Captain...
48w ago - Sony Content Producer Simon Bramble interviewed Eric Webb of Id Software today, who discussed Doom 3: BFG Edition - the full experience on the PS3 entertainment system!
Below are the details, to quote: Doom 3: BFG Edition is set to launch on PS3 in October of 2012, bringing with it the first two games in the iconic series.
It means you'll be able to play the entire Doom series on PS3 for the first time and see for yourself why many consider these games to be some of the most influential shooters of all time.
We caught up with Eric Webb, producer from game developer id Software, at E3 2012 to talk about how the game has been buffed up for PS3.
PlayStation.Blog: How do you think all three games stand up today on PS3?
Eric Webb, Producer, Doom 3: BFG Edition: I think they all stand up really well. One of the first things we did when we first started work on it was pay attention to how the controls feel.
There's something about the DualShock 3 controller and its dual analog sticks that feels really good when you're holding it in a game like this. It gives it a different life and almost makes it an entirely new experience. So I think it's really cool on PS3.
