245w 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

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.
