E3 2008: Ratchet and Clank: Quest For Booty

Ratchet and Clank: Quest For Booty is a title we've long heard about, as its name and PSN destination was leaked months ago on the internet. The game is indeed heading to the PlayStation Network as a downloadable title. Insomniac has made no sacrifices, other than the length of the game, in bringing us an all new Ratchet and Clank experience.

The visuals are still brimming with the same details we saw in Ratchet and Clank Future, so Quest For Booty is an impressive looking title, even if it is running on a carried-over engine. In his newest quest, Ratchet has gained a number of abilities, one of which is long overdue - the ability to pick up and throw objects. Picking up objects is as simple as coming up to them and pressing the square button. You'll be able to hurl the objects at a variety of different targets, including doors and enemies.

There'll be a variety of different objects to pick up, with different types of objects serving different functions. For example, some objects are explosive, while others aren't. Despite being a downloadable game, voice acting is still present, but Insomniac is trying to keep the download size below 2GB.

While your Quest For Booty won't exactly be as epic of an adventure as Tools of Destruction, it'll still be lengthy enough to warrant the meager $14.99 price of admission. Ratchet and Clank fans will really love Quest For Booty as soon as they get to sink their teeth into it.

I can't believe that sony would do this to us, first they bored us for half of the thing and the only big title they announced for the ps3 is God of War 3......

I mean Microsoft showing was just amazing it makes me feel like going out and buying a 360.

And what happen to Killzone?!?!?!?!?

to each his own, but i think without that FFXIII news ( which btw, is still hitting ps3 ) MS was a bit of a bore also

I agree with aaron. FF13 is multiplat!!!

The majority of MS' presentation was multiplat games, or games they have ripped off from PS3 or Wii, eg Lips-Singstar, Avatar-Mii and their eyetoy game...
Not really as impressive as the info released by Sony.

Sony isn't as much to blame as it's developers.

But look at what insomniac has done: They created a launch title that is the soul reason the PS3 didn't COMPLETELY FLOP in it's first year (Resistance). It then made an amazing exclusive in Ratchet and Clank Future. Now it's about about to release one of the largest games ever made in Resistance 2.

And then they introduce this "expansion pack" for Ratchet and Clank.

Congrats Insomniac is the best and hardest working developer in the history of video games.

And we look at naughty dog and sucker punch they're tripping. Uncharted was defintely an awesome game but it's only one in number and Insomniac is working on it's 4th. 3 1/2...

Oh and the Resistance game coming out for PSP. It's not being made by insomniac but it is spawned from their original game series and I'm sure the insomniacs will be helping out a bit with story elements etc.

I thought the only thing MS had going was the GeoW2 preview, other than that it was a bore. And I also thought the Sony conference went pretty well, it appealed to the hardcore gamers that we all are and that was it. None of that dance/sing crap lol.

I actually thought sony's presentation was better than microsoft's. the little big planet presentation showed of its unique style. and the resistance demo was sweet. i'm looking forward to the ratchet game, and of course GoW3 is just awesome. the no killzone mention was probably to keep attention focused on resistance. i just was really hoping for details on white knight story or a sequel to shadow of the colossus.

All microsoft managed was to copy what Sony and Nintento already had. Nothing new from Micrsoft in the feature part.

While the Sony camp had more games, the MS camp showed off their games in live action demo form which is way more impressive than a trailer.

@Pillar - They were showing it off on G4, and it looked more awesome than ever.

I was really expecting more of Infamous, Motorstorm, Socom, LBP, White Knight Chronicles, Wardevil, The Agency, and the Team Ico game.

They barely showed anything about GOW3, it sorta seemed like they just put together that trailer to show that they are making the game, but it's not even close to being finished.

The DC Universe game looked horrible...

@ Fabi - Sony's presentation was not all about the PS3. They had information on the PSP and even the PS2. Now we all know that we want info on these PS3 games, but not everyone has one yet, and I think it says something about Sony when they dedicate some time talking about last-gen consoles in a next-gen era.

Well...Nintendo's was just horrible I'd say PS3 had better show but 360 I guess had the biggest "fanboy" moment with the FFXIII thing

cheers Zap...awwww, I want the forums back!

I forgot to tell you zap, this is the same wabbit that killed a thousand Sealions in the battle of the Walrus back in 1408, when all I had was a beer mat and a kazoo.

the sealions still talk to this day about the sound, the sound of death over the hills....

its not too late zap, its not too late.


im bored.. c'mon, get the forums up or im going to talk rubbish in all the front page news items XD
