UPDATE: The audio issues in the cinematics on the ratchetandclank.com contest page have been fixed, so feel free to re-download the Cinematics.zip file for the version with audio.
We also know a lot of you have been asking about music in the trailers and what you can use. Due to the fact that these trailers will be posted publicly, and we don’t want to infringe on any artists’ rights by using their music without permission, you’ll need to use only the audio from the files provided on the contest page. We know that this limits your audio options when creating the trailers, and we’re taking that into account when judging the top 10, so don’t worry if the music in your trailer doesn’t line up perfectly with the video.
Happy holidays Ratchet & Clank fans! Hopefully you’re all enjoying some quality gaming time with your friends and family cozied up by the fire playing Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One this winter. Personally, I’ve been spending a lot of time down in the lobby of PlayStation’s HQ playing on the massive Ratchet & Clank arcade cabinet we first revealed at Comic-Con and PAX. I wish I had room for one in my place!
The good news is that in celebration of this holiday season, we’re going to be giving you two chances to win one of these cabinets for yourself! The pair we’re giving away include a PS3 and the custom Ratchet & Clank controllers, so just plug them in and you’re ready to enjoy the ultimate Ratchet & Clank experience.
Seriously… How good would that thing look in your living room?
About now, you’re probably wondering how you get your hands on one of these. Starting today, those of you with a creative streak can head over to www.ratchetandclank.com and enter our Trailer Contest, which will be running until December 15th. We’ve provided all the cinematics from the game along with some gameplay footage for you to edit into your own Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One trailer. We’ll select our top 10 favorite submissions and post them to the contest page. Then, you, the fans, get to vote on your favorite and whoever creates the most popular video will be ringing in the New Year with a brand new All 4 One arcade cabinet!
We know not all of you are into video editing, though, and that’s why we’re also holding a “5 Days Of Ratchet” giveaway during December. Follow @PlayStation and keep your eyes peeled from December 12th to December 16th. We’ll be providing trivia questions each day; answer correctly and you’ll have a chance to win the second cabinet. Even if you don’t win the grand prize, we’ll be giving away sets of our sleek custom DualShock 3 controllers every day, so it pays to try and try again.
Enjoy your holiday time this year and be sure to follow @PlayStation and @insomniacgames for all things Ratchet & Clank. Oh, and don’t forget — Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One makes a great stocking stuffer!
