Insomniac: PS2 Ratchet Titles Could Come To The PS3
The return of many PS1 classics on the PlayStation Network has proven to be a great success, but how's about moving along to PS2 games?
Some developers and publishers have already expressed their desire to see this happen, and the latest on the list is Insomniac Games. According to Examiner.com, there has been some talk about bringing the great Ratchet and Clank PS2 titles to the PS3 in some form, perhaps even in high-def Blu-Ray format like we saw with the God of War Collection. The subject has come up over at Insomniac's Twitter page and as you can see, there's one particular response that sounds promising:
"It's a cool idea, if there is enough support for this sort of thing. If SCEA wants to do it, we'd support a dev taking it on."
If you're wondering, SCE Santa Monica didn't handle the GoW conversion for the aforementioned God of War Collection; they outsourced that project to Bluepoint Games. And now, it seems that Insomniac is perfectly willing to do something similar, so perhaps we'll see that happen in the future. Maybe if the Collection does well financially...? Ratchet is one of those franchises that has been loved for multiple generations and although the more advanced ones are great, there's something to be said for the old classics.
