The Worlds Collide teaser (Confirmed to be Insomniac related!)

This topic is locked from further discussion.

Seemed like a stretch, but then I read through this 

http://www.insomniacgames.com/community/showthread.php?52823-Thugs-4-Less-hints

When someone in that thread mentioned that the image Sony put up could have been hinting at a new R&C game, someone from Insomniac replied posted "intereeesssting".... And that whole thread, the Insomniac devs were just teasing us in the midst of out speculation =p

Then there's this.

http://www.ign.com/blogs/falcon-x32/2013/07/09/is-playstations-mysterious-image-revealing-the-next-ratchet-clank

 

As long as it's a standard R&C title, then it will be good. People are always saying that thier last good title was aCiT, and this one is likely to be a non spinoffy R&C game.

 

 

UPDATE: Confirmed to be an Insomniac related announcement.

 

Sony posted this image and tagged Insomniac Games in it.

Well they were always independent. The IP is still owned by Sony, and Insomniac said they'd never stop making Ratchet and Clank games... So that pretty much confirmed that they'd continue to make R&C for Sony.

You're the same one who said Insomniac was never good, and you've never played and R&C game...... lol (That is the only series I like from them tbh)

A Crack in Time is a masterpiece (though not as good as UYA). I have confidence that Insomniac could still make a fantastic Ratchet game but only if it's open world like ACIT and their Burbank studio is developing it.

I wouldn't exactly call aCiT open world, but yeah, I agree =P. Most of the ones who worked on the original R&C titles are stationed at the NC studio btw. Their Burbank studio is working on Sunset Overdrive.

They are certainly capable of making a good Ratchet game if they don't go away from the tradtional formula too much.

Oh really? I didn't know that. :P Judging by All 4 One I assumed that the talent wasn't as great as the Burbank teams. And ACIT was kinda open world, traversing the galaxy in your ship, landing on planets, space battles, side missions, etc. It's not Skyrim Open World but it is much more open and explorable than any other R&C game.

On the one hand a new (proper) Ratchet & Clank game would be sweet. But damn I'm wanting some new IP's.

If this is indeed Insomniac revealing something, I guess it makes sense it would have to be an established IP. Seems like Fuse was a massive sales disaster/flop, and that Xbox One game looks a bit odd (like it could have major sales flop potential as well). So basically it is hard to see them signing on for any other exclusive besides Ratchet, unless Sony is going to guarantee them more $$$ of course.

Tthis would be a good announcement, but it could have been better (new IP from Geurilla games or something).

Well I mean, whether A4O or FFA was made by the Burbank studio or not, the outcome would have likely been similar since those two games weren't even supposed to be regular R&C games in the first place,

True. If this game exists and releases next fall, it would have been in development for about 3 years. Hopefully we'll see a traditional R&C adventure with a large world featuring a new villain, a new cast of characters, tons of cool new weapons, and maybe even the return of UYA's multiplayer.

So maybe the teaser could be something move related? Or is that just a coincidence? Well either way, Insomniac is definitely hinting at a new R&C and a return of the Thugs-4-Less group from Going Commando. 

 TOD was announced before the PS3 was launched, so i'm guessing the game Insomniac is hinting at will be shown at Gamescom considering Sony is saving some announcements for that.

Resistance 3 and A4O were both announced at the same Gamescom, so Insomniac is no stranger to announcements there.

I seriously doubt it on the Move part. At least by that evidence. The only part that has any real suggestive material is the similar color (shape is a common one and glow comes from what its supposed to look like).

Yes that'd make me too happy =D Well actually I was kinda expecting (and actually hoping) they release around the time of the R&C movie in 2015. It'd be good for advertising purposes, and it would give Insomniac much more time to make the game the best they can make it. A big problem with them imo is that they seem to bring out games too fast. They released 9 games this gen, plus Outernauts... That's more than 1 game a year :|..... When I go to the Insomniac museum in aCiT, it's just disappointing seeing all the stuff they ended up cutting. Oh yeah, and all of Insomniac's tweets definitely hint that the Thugs-4-Less guys from GC will return. Whether they will be the main villains or not.... I dunno

I hope it's another crossover game, but I'm likely wrong.

Playstation Move Heroes 2.... Starring Nathan Drake, Cole, and Nathan Hale! Well at least then, they could make a decent co-op third person shooter =P
#25 Posted by DrRockso87 (2549 posts) -

Ugh, please, please, PLEASE be a full single-player campaign like the original games!! I've been playing through the HD Collection recently and thought about how much I'd love to have another full single-player Ratchet & Clank title again like A Crack in Time. While Full Frontal Assault was decent and All 4 One was alright, they weren't what I really wanted. I want a single-player experience again.

I understand Insomniac has to shoehorn multiplayer into all of their games nowadays. It's just how the industry is I suppose. But how about a single-player game with online multiplayer/co-op Ratchet & Clank title on PS4? Please?!

Ratchet and Jak Cross Over???? That would be amazing.

#27 Posted by DrRockso87 (2549 posts) -

They're all great games. Great humor, wide arsenal of weapons, fun story, good voice acting, good length, etc. There's also challenge mode (i.e. new game plus) afterward for replay value.

The original is good while the sequels are amazing. The original lacks some of the great features of the sequels. E.g. No strafing (firing while running sideways), no bolt multiplier, no arena challenges, etc. But it's still worth playing. Just rough around the edges.

I highly recommend the collection.

Someday I wish for Andy Gavin and Jason Rubin to return to Naughty Dog and create their own division where they work on future Jak and Daxter games.

They were the original creators of the series. It's no coincidence that after they left, Naughty Dog stopped making new Jak and Daxter games. :(

Get rid of the "Move" and I would be all for it. :D I love crossovers, and I would have gotten PSMove Heroes if it wasn't a Move exclusive.

It's confirmed to be Ratchet and Clank. Sony posted an updated version of the image and tagged Insomniac Games in it.

Not really, there are bugs but it's far, far, farrr from unplayable.

All this for a R&C game? Wow, talk about not exited.

I love insomniac and would buy this game day 1.

I only ever had the first R&C. I was mostly into Jak & Daxter :)

I played all three games in the collection back to back with no issues what so ever.:)

#43 Posted by Pikminmaniac (9398 posts) -

If this is a new and proper Ratchet and Clank colour me excited. A Crack in Time was awesome.

The PS4 is looking good. So far they might be bringing back two of Sony's best IPs (inFAMOUS and R&C). Hopefully they announce some good new IPs as well

#45 Posted by AHUGECAT (8967 posts) -

Disappointing. Ratchet and Clank was good, but there's been like 12 of their games. Xbox owners get a new IP from Insomniac that looks WAY better - Sunset Overdrive.

EDIT: ALthough if it s a Jak and Ratchet crossover that would be pretty awesome.... there hasn't been a Jak platformer on a console since what, 2004?

So a CGI trailer looks better than an established high scoring series? Makes sense.

There are like 30 Ratchet and Clank games. Now if this is a crossover with Jak, then it has some potential. Btw, I liked A Crack in Time.

But yes, Sunset Overdrive looks to have a lot of potential... much more than a Ratchet game.

How does a CGI trailer look to have potential? You haven't seen any gameplay. Delusional lems.
