Ratchet & Clank Quest for Booty August 21

Insomniac duo's downloadable excursion will arrive on PlayStation 3 online store for $14.99.

by

Insomniac developers may be pulling all-nighters to finish up work on the company's big holiday release of Resistance 2, but that isn't stopping the studio from offering gamers their annual dose of Ratchet & Clank.

Ratchet won't always have Clank handy.

The pair's debut downloadable outing, Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty on the PlayStation 3, received an exact release date today on GameSpot's latest episode of On the Spot. The smaller-than-usual-size game will arrive on the PlayStation Store August 21, complete with a smaller-than-usual-size price tag: $14.99.

Picking up after the events of Ratchet & Clank Future, Quest for Booty will put a greater emphasis on puzzle-solving and platforming elements. The game will also incorporate a new light-and-dark gameplay mechanic.

Well, it comes out on Blu-ray if you live in Europe. If not, someone will almost certainly stick an EU Blu-ray copy of the game on eBay or something. Part of me wishes this was going to be a longer game, but then again, we would have to wait at least another year for that until after Resistance 2 is finished, so this should suit me fine for now.

I think that should be worth it.

Two things: one YAY ANOTHER R&C GAME SWEET!!!! Two: Is this game on an physical disk or does one have to Download the WHOLE THING??? If it is a download only thing, then I will be very sad. Dail-up sucks.And that makes it very complicated.......Damn.....

@jeremiah06, What do you mean it'll only be 2-4hrs long?

Jeremiah, I'm not saying the other 3 games of R&C are bad... I just never was interested in playing them. I only played Tools of Destruction because my wife wanted to check it out (she loves "cartoon" games). I ended up loving it. It really was a great game. I don't think I can go back and play the other R&C games though. I like R&C in HD, couldn't go back to the last gen models...

@littlesunday: Nope 2-4 hours long.

14.99 actually seems kinda steep for 2-4 hours of gameplay. I could see paying more along the lines of 9.99 for this.

@micmill: What? You just sound dumb, I could see if Tools was the best so far, but the other 3 games were all superior to the PS3 debut. You should really look into playing them.

I never gave a rats about R&C until I played Tools of Destruction. That was a great game. I am very excited for this to come out... I love the episodic download concept...

I really want this as Tools of Destruction was awesome and sucked me into the R &C universe.

looks like it will be a very fun game. Also sounds like a very worthy quest, in my hirsute opinion.

I personally have my doubts. With working on Resistance 2 and releasing Quest for Booty in a mere 20 days, you have to wonder how this game will compare with the rest of the R&C series excluding the horrendous "Size Matters" port for PS2. I hope they know what they are doing and I also hope that this isn't the future of R&C. *Crosses fingers for Tools of Destruction 2*

lol i love that title "Quest for booty". It could almost sound like a GTA mission that deals with them h**kers.

That's good news. Looks like I'll be buying a lot of games on PSN this month with PixelJunk Eden, Bionic Commando: Rearmed and now Quest For Booty.

Last I heard this game was due out around the end of September (although it was never an official announcement). August 21 makes me a much happier person. :D
