215w ago - Insomniac Games Community Director Ryan Schneider has revealed that Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time hits PS3 today... and has shared a few videos which include a Community Day recap, as follows:
For those of you who read my last post and were lucky enough to attend our Full Moon Festival this past Friday, I hope it's now safe to say that the Smurfs are no longer the only good thing to come out of October 23 milestones.
About 150 Ratchet & Clank and Insomniac fans joined us from as far away as Michigan (thanks Adam!), Texas (thanks Mitch!) and all over California - some waiting in line starting at 5am – to celebrate today's North American launch of Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time.
Even Clank himself managed to make an appearance, albeit in the form of talented voice actor David Kaye (who also voices Nathan Hale in the Resistance games).
General Alister Azimuth, aka Joey D'Auria, paid a visit along with G4TV's very own Adam Sessler as part of a "making of A Crack in Time" panel moderated by yours truly. Insomniac founder and CEO Ted Price, gameplay lead Andrew Yount and lead designer Mike Ellis shared their production memories as part of the standing-room only discussion.
216w ago - Although not quite as nice as the optional Tekken 6 PS3 HDD install, today it was confirmed that Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time for PS3 will have a mandatory (but small) 500MB installation.
To quote: "Much like Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, the latest Ratchet & Clank title also features a mandatory installation. Requiring 500MBs of space, A Crack in Time will only take up a small fraction of your HDD space.
Instead of watching a boring loading screen, though, the game will have Captain Qwark recap the events of Tools of Destruction in an interview.
If you haven't played Tools of Destruction for a while, or somehow missed out on the awesome experience, you'll know the basics as to why Clank is missing and who the Zoni are through this interesting and comical interview."
216w ago - Today Sony's Software Marketing Associate Product Manager Cristian Cardona has shared two new Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time videos highlighting two upcoming PS3 demos, as follows:
I'm happy to announce today that this Thursday on the PlayStation Store, you'll be able to download the first of TWO Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time demos and we're inviting you to check out the Clank Demo.
In this demo, you'll take get to take control of Clank as he explores the Great Clock learning more about his past and his new time-based abilities that you'll need to utilize to solve puzzles and defeat some of Dr. Nefarious' minions. This is some brand new gameplay that Insomniac Games is introducing to the series and we all hope you enjoy it!
Details on the second demo, the Ratchet Demo, will be coming in the next few days, so keep an eye out! In the meantime, check out these sweet videos showing off some of Ratchet's new arsenal and giving you more information about the Constructo line of weapons!
And this week, Insomniac Games Creative Director Brian Allgeier will be stopping by PlayStation.Blog for a PlayStation Eye Chat.
