A Crack In Time Officially Goes Gold

Oh, look...another awesome game for October. We knew it was coming, but we always know everything is final when the product strikes gold.

As revealed by the PlayStation Blog, Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time has officially gone gold and will be on store shelves on October 27 in North America. That post also points you in the direction of a special promotional video at Game Informer, which focuses on the super-cool replay mode in the game. There's also mention of a special boss that requires you to collect all of the Zoni to face, the new Insomniac museum, optional and intensely challenging puzzles for the sidekick, Clank, the "Skill Points" many of you are familiar with, and Trophies. As for pre-order bonuses - gotta have those these days, right? - you can head to GameStop, Amazon, Best Buy or Game Crazy to check out their various incentives, and also bear in mind that Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction now has the Greatest Hit price of $29.99. We have absolutely no doubt that this new installment will be well worth the full price of admission, just because this is one of the most well-received and accomplished franchises in existence.

So yeah, there's another game you have to consider buying in October. We hate to keep informing you of all these awesome titles, but hey...it's kinda what we do.

What ever happened to the good old days when New Games were like between 40 and 50 dollars...

Newsflash for those emerging from a time warp. Video games for PS3 and Xbox 360 have been $59.99 since day 1.

Sadly the days of $40/$50 for a new game ended 3 years ago or more. Three things in life are certain, death, taxes and inflation.

Just wait for 6 months, and buy them at discount... does one always have to buy the game on day one? How many people are sitting with games they haven't completed yet?

Q!

huh.
what happened to the good old days where i use to pay the conversion from USD to AUD and thats it.
not the conversion + 30 or so bucks.
last time i checked 60 USD is around 80 AUD.
and were paying 110 for every single game, sometimes 120.

Games in Australia are ridiculously high priced. $110AUD or occasionally $120AUD for one game? thats totally insane. EB games are crazy, at least JB hi-fi is selling most games for under $100. However, its still too expensive. Thats why I have been buying most games through Ebay, one game is probably bout like 70+AUD? way way cheaper. Only time I buy in retailers are for the Collectors Edition like KZ2, Uncharted 2 and soon to be Ratchet and Clank

Finally, some news about this game! I've been dying for A Crack in Time since I finished Quest for Booty last year. From what I've been reading, ACIT should be the best R&C yet. Can't wait till ten-twenty-seven!

Can't wait to get my hands on this game. I got a platinum trophie for Resistance2 and I will get one for this one too. Uncharted 2 will make the wait bearable. This is the reason why I love PS3.

your not going to understand the storyline if you havent played TOD.
kinda like if you play DMC 4 without 1 2 or 3.

Eh, I felt DMC4 was really out of the story, haha but i think each DMC does good at retelling the story each game honestly, I never played DMC1 but played DMC2/3/4 felt like I knew what was going on pretty well.

Well you won't have clank fully with you for this adventure so it'll be a different 1st experience?

o_O But I think R&C: TOD will fill in some plot holes on why Clank isn't with Ratchet.

I still haven't finished Tools of Destruction. Tried to get Quest for Booty but had problems with PSN. Guess I'll need to wait to play this one. It too pretty to pass on though. Think it will matter if I play this without playing the others?

FYI Google IGN Peace Walker. They have intructions and a link to download the TGS Peace Walker demo. :) it's awesome.

Warning: Its all In Japanese.

read the world first review of this the other day and i must say im impressed.
only 2 bad things.
1 the transition between playing as ratchet than clank is kinda abrupt and is not fluid and confusing how the 2 link up in respect to time.
2 the gameplay is faster than previous games which is a good thing, the game feels like a build up to a nuclear explosion.
but when the bomb finally lands its a dud.
thats how he described the ending, which is really disappointing considering TODs ending.

Yes! Platforming funness to the max!

Now I'm wishing they'd do a Ratchet and Clank blu-ray re-release!

It would be nice if Insomniac put the DLC chapter on the disc as a bonus that way we could have a hard copy of that as well.

Oh well, I guess I'm going to import the DLC chapter from Asia after all.

I ordered Q4B from Hong Kong a few days ago. I refuse to 'buy' DLC, so it was worth spending an extra $10 to get the game on disc. Its also going to look cool having TOD, Q4B, and ACIT sitting in a row next to my ps3.
