Trine, Ratchet & Clank demo drop on PS Store

PSN Update: Nobilis' fantasy platformer arrives on PS3 along with Sample of Insomniac's plucky platformer; old-school Oddworld also goes live.

Sony has updated the PlayStation Store with a fresh batch of gaming wares, including the long-awaited PlayStation 3 version of Trine. Published by Nobilis and developed by indie shop Frozenbyte, the 2D fantasy platformer received decent reviews when it was released on the PC in June. On the PS3, it will cost $20 to download and is rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older.

The week's other new PSN games aren't new at all. As previously announced, two original PlayStation classics from independent developer Oddworld, Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus and Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, are now available on the service. Both platformers were critical darlings when released and will cost $10 each to download on the PS3 or PSP.

The PlayStation Store update will also offer demos of three games. The first two are for the puzzler Critter Crunch (424 MB) and the fighting game Dragon Ball: Raging Blast (358 MB). Last but certainly not least is a demo for Insomniac's forthcoming Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time. Weighing in at a hefty 2.35GB, the demo lets players control the robotic half of the titular duo as he uses new time-shifting abilities to solve puzzles and battle foes. The game is due out next Tuesday exclusively for the PS3.

It took about 1.5 hours for my download. I was actually surprised it went so fast. Usually the wireless is terrible for everything else in the house, but my PS3 works well with it. If the demo is that big, how much space does the entire game take? Thank goodness for blu-ray, eh?

for you guys taking hours to dl games off the psn..i wouldnt use the wireless connection on large files like the ratchet demo use the wired connection if you can..i think it took me about an hour over the wired connection but that would have easily doubled with wireless..

I don't know if anybody else noticed but on the Japanese PSN a demo of Bayonetta was recently released and it is AMAZING! You must download it now. I can't stop replaying the thing.

The demo for R&C was actually pretty good. I'm a tad disappointed that there isn't a Ratchet demo because I was under the impression that there would be 2. But it took forever to download, lol! The sections in Clank's mind are really neat looking.

I won't download it. I'm not a fan of this series. I'll try playing the first one on PS2 first.
