Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault Vita delayed again

PlayStation Vita version of action game pushed to spring 2013; Deadlocked for PS3 offered free.

by

The PlayStation Vita version of Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault has been delayed a second time and is now due out in spring 2013. The game was originally targeted to launch alongside the PlayStation 3 version in November, before being delayed to January 29.

According to Sony Computer Entertainment America producer Greg Phillips, developer Tin Giant has been working "night and day" on the PS Vita version of Full Frontal Assault, but additional time is still needed to "bring the game up to the standards expected by our fans."

"We realize that this delay may be disappointing for our fans, but please know that we are doing our best to get the game into your hands as soon as possible," Phillips said.

In an effort to "make it up" to fans, Sony will give away copies of Ratchet & Clank: Deadlocked on the PS3 for those who purchased the console version of Full Frontal Assault. The giveaway kicks off when Full Frontal Assault for the PS Vita launches this spring.

Full Frontal Assault takes advantage of Sony's new Cross Buy promotion, whereby those who purchase the PS3 version will receive the PS Vita iteration for free.

Soooo many R&C games... I just barely got into the first one. It's overwhelming.

Sounds like alot of work to bring a port of a AAA game to a platform almost no one owns.

Could care less. The R&C games lost a lot of their charm and fun after they left the PS2. I still didn't finish the first R&C (PS3) game. It was so repetitive and boring after an hour, I stopped playing. Going to continue playing Ni No Kuni and maybe go back and finish playing Valkyria Chronicles again. Two great PS3 games.

I'm also still waiting for Ratchet Deadlocked HD. Which was supposed to be released last year.

Tempting because I loved Deadlocked, but game doesn't seem to be very good. I didn't like A4O very much.

So if you downloaded full frontal assault on psn for free with ps+ do you still get deadlocked free? that would be cool.

 While this is a big bummer for a lot of people I'm sure at least they aren't putting it out there before it's ready. I'd always rather wait.

Well would of been better if they gave the free game now or at the very least gave us a game that wasn't in the same series.  While I have not gotten around to playing Deadlocked I'm sure a lot of people who were interested in FFA and actually care about the cross-buy promotion are fans of the R&A series and have probably played a game that released over 7 years ago.  While they won't be able to make everyone happy I feel a game in the same series was a bad idea.

"Hey you guys want this game? Yeah sorry, it's not done yet. To make it up to you we're offering another game for free to people who already have the game that you want."

Doesn't matter if it was delayed for the rest of the generation. This just is not an interesting game. They REALLY need to get back to the original platforming/shooting mechanics of the original games / first ones of this generation .... maybe one or 2 specialty short titles but it seems like the actual series has died. Not to mention the superior ps3 version is already out. Sony , I don't think you could do a better job of sinking the Vita if you were trying...

So, they delay a game on the Vita, and to make up for it they give people a free PS3 game. All right, Sony. There's making sense.

Get it together Sony.  But hey at least they are trying to make it up to people with free goodies.
