No Booty on Blu-Ray
While the PlayStation Network has produced many high-profile downloadable titles, Sony has also offered boxed versions of many of its first-party titles. The tide seems to be turning in that respect, though, as Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty follows Wipeout HD by being an online-exclusive release...
Perhaps the strangest part of the news is that while the UK won't see a Blu-Ray version of Quest for Booty, the rest of Europe will. On August 18, Sony Europe announced that the game would hit the whole of Europe via PSN on August 21 and Blu-Ray September 11, both for £9.99 in the UK. However, today the publisher corrected that statement with us, saying that the game won't be hitting the UK in any physical form. The rest of Europe remains unaffected.
Titles such as Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, Warhawk and Siren: Blood Curse have seen dual releases for download and Blu-Ray; however the upcoming Wipeout HD will also be released online only. For more on Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty, check out our full review.
