Ratchet & Clank Collection Hits August 28th With Sly Cooper Demo

James Stevenson's Avatar + Posted by James Stevenson on Jul 16, 2012 // Community Lead, Insomniac Games

As the celebration of Ratchet & Clank’s 10th Anniversary has unfolded this year, we’ve received your anxious e-mails, tweets and Facebook messages asking us when you can get your hands on the Ratchet & Clank Collection in North America. Today, we can tell you the remaster of three original PS2 Ratchet & Clank games will be available at retailers and via PlayStation Network on August 28th for $29.99!

The Ratchet & Clank Collection for PS3

The Collection features 1080p HD remasters of three PS2 Ratchet & Clank classics: Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, and Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal. In addition, these three games have Trophy and 3D support (in 720p), and the fine folks over at Idol Minds have restored online play to Up Your Arsenal. At last, those who missed out on competitive R&C gameplay during the PS2 Network Adapter era can finally check it out!

We realize that the Ratchet & Clank Collection is arriving in North America a bit later than it did in Europe and Japan. To reward you for your patience, we’re giving you exclusive first access to the Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time demo when you purchase the Collection. If you love Ratchet, you probably love Sly, and the Ratchet & Clank Collection will let you test drive Sly’s new time-traveling adventure starting on August 28th. As an added bonus, you’ll receive a special Ratchet & Clank 10th anniversary avatar!

This is very nice news, my two favorites ratchet games are “up your arsenal” and ” deadlocked”. It has so much replay value and now remastered in HD plus trophies and online mode makes it even better to get this HD collections, but too bad deadlocked isn’t in the package. Hope it gets available soon :-).

Love that its coming, but the suprize is a bit disappointing, 2 months for an avatar and a demo that will prob be on PSN a few weeks later…really? Also you kinda picked a sketchy date to release, Guild Wars 2 releases same day so my copy of R&C is probably going to sit on standby for a while.

Oh and just to counter those claiming that our generation is entitled, we didn’t demand compensation for a belated release, it was offered. $30 is a steal for this collection but that isnt the special suprise we have to wait 2 months for, the demo and avatar are, and thats what I, and others like me, are basing our complaints on.

Maybe I should buy this to see how Ratchet and Clank came to be, and looking forward to Sly 4!

@StalkingReaptor
You’re entitled to your opinion, but you seem to be the minority. I’ve played every ratchet & clank game in order of release (excluding Secret Agent Clank, and All 4 One), and Deadlocked is among the best, in my opinion.
