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.

  • That sounds awesome! I’ll be sure to keep a look out for it.

  • Totally sweet… Im Hoping to win this now lol xD

  • Love how the person in the bottom left is wearing the bag from the inFamous 2 collectors edition…

  • I am SO entering the trailer contest! This looks incredible!

  • Ok I know you said ‘The pair we’re giving away include a PS3 and the custom Ratchet & Clank controllers’ Does that also include the Monitor? Very awesome setup regardless I will be entering and maybe I might get both? :P

      They do indeed! Each of them has a great new HDTV monitor built into it.

  • this look awesome.

  • I need one of those controllers.

  • the end of the best is a at hand even though i never got around to a xbox 360 or a wii im sad its comeing to a end the ps3 is the best of the best next year all three will come out with a new system so another at least two years of no good games for all. when in the end they just get started ok for the ps3 and 360 two years of bad games but the wii u is getting some real game so for nintendo fans next years will be good for you but for you ps3 fan boys and 360 next two years will suck the end of gameing giants i just hope they can bring something new to the table

  • I WANT ONE!!! Sony you should also make a Jak & Daxter one for the launch of the games coming on the PSN…

  • driftersgonewild

    i just went to the website to register and I got 4 free ratchet and clank avatars, 1 free wallpaper theme and 4 free ps home items for watching a video
    go check it out while supplies last

  • Those controllers are sweet, but I don’t have the time for twitter contests or video editing anymore. Can’t you just make the set available for sale at some point?

    • Derek Osgood

      That may be a possibility sometime down the road, but getting custom peripherals like these created isn’t an easy process, nor is it cheap (each set of these costs upwards of $400). So chances are that these will remain a limited-edition item. The twitter promotion should only take you 5 minutes or so to enter though, since all you’ll need to do is tweet the answer to a trivia question.

  • Shame its US only. Americans get all the good [DELETED] -_-

  • Quick question. I downloaded the cinematics and gameplay videos, but there is no audio on any of the videos within the cinematic folder. Was this on purpose? Will we be able to download any of the cinematics with audio? Thanks! This is a great contest.

    • Derek Osgood
      Derek Osgood

      We’re checking on that right now. That issue doesn’t look like it’s popping up with with all the cinematics, but we’re aware that a couple of them are missing audio. We’ll try to have the versions with audio up ASAP for you though.

  • DoTheKiller91

    Hey SONY, tell the guys at Insomniac Games to do more DLC’s for Resistance 3! Bought the Doomsday Edition, worth every penny! Haven’t tried All 4 One yet though.

  • Thanks!!!

  • LilWayneSuckz

    I just platinum’d Ratchet and Clank: A Crack In Time…I NEED those controllers

  • I would’ve thought that it is just a different coat of paint to make and sell those controller. Is that also why North America never gets different coloured PS3s or limited edition PS3s?

  • comicfan007

    Sweet controllers !!!

  • The cabinet would be cool to win, but what I really want are those controllers.

  • i downloaded both and some have no audio wheres the audio?

    • Derek Osgood
      Derek Osgood

      Yes, sorry about that, some of the cinematics are missing the audio. However, we’re currently re-downloading and re-compressing them and will have a new file up as soon as we can for you to download.

      The source files are extremely large, so prepping them again is taking some time, but check the contest page on Monday/Tuesday next week and the updated files will be up. If there are any more complications, we may extend the submission deadline to make up for lost time.

  • I like the controllers colors

  • quirowekjefhgekr

    looks like another sweet contest. gonna download them as soon as the audio is fixed. too bad this wont fit in my room, would like to chill on my bed while playing. :)

  • If you just made the purple controller available to buy I would be happy. :)

  • ***PLEASE READ***

    What kind of trailer songs/songs are we allowed to use? Can we use any or do we have to make our own trailer song?

  • Captain_CHEETO

    Obvious question would be if the offer apply world wide or just in the US and Canada? Controllers look tempting

  • If i win this will i be able to access the ps3? As in being able to use disc games instead of downloading new ones. Also would the controllers be locked down like @ Comic-con? This is probably something that everybody wants to know, cause if the ps3 non-accessible that just makes this go straight down the drain for me!

  • Anyone else notice the Infamous backpack on the left of the picture there? I saw the Sly patch and realised what it was!

    Way to represent, whoever that is!

  • EvanLeBlanc

    Are we allowed to use any music that isn’t strictly our own? Ex: Adele’s music..as opposed to a piano cover I recorded myself?
    BTW: I was not planning on using any of Adele’s music.

  • I WANT 1! ! ! :P

  • Are you going to upload music files from the game’s soundtrack as well, or can we use any song for the trailer?

  • Please release these colors as official ones! Those things would sell like crazy!!

  • Two quick questions for ya Derek:

    1) Are we required to include the ESRB rating in the beginning and the PlayStation / “Make Believe” bit at the end? I ask because I understand the winner will be put up on PlayStation’s Youtube channel, so it would make sense to include these.

    2) As many have asked before, what music are we allowed to use for the background?

    Thanks!

  • DarkMegamanSX900

    OK i have a question how can we make the videos what can we do to it and
    And when will the Twitter thing start?? please answer Thank You want to win so bad never won anything before LOL got to try :)

  • Looks like it’s US only, at least according to the Ratchet & Clank website.

  • Moneybags118

    So I noticed in the contest rules it mentioned something about tax. To be honest, I don’t even want to enter if I wind up winning only to have to pay $600 tax. Yes that’s nothing compared to $6000, but I don’t have that kind of money. Is there going to be tax at all? And if there is how much would I have to pay?

  • Pretty sweet, though I don’t think I have that creative spark that some folks have.
    I’m hoping that those controllers go on sale one day because the purple and lime green would be a definite buy. Hope that it’s cheap enough for you guys to pull off one day.

  • pepsiguy789

    I WANT. Now, if i had some ideas to do something with those videos…

  • ToKKeNbL00dMoNeY

    i iwsh these were just for sale, one it would be a GREAT christmas presents for the whole family, and second, i have been looking EVERYWHERE for a purple controller for my girlfriend, purple is her favourite colour bu i just cant seem to find one anywhere. BTW the whole thing tho is pretty neat, but the controllers for sale at walmart would be cooler :P its normally $50 a controller for just sell then for $150 in plus tax, and i would be willing to pay more then that :P

  • rmartinez10

    If you want these colors, and more, you can have Colorware PC take care of that for you. I recognized those colors as soon as I saw them. Pretty cool.

  • Boo, only available to the states. :( Bring stuff like this to Canada once in a while!

  • XD_Darth_Sackboy

    I WANT IT!!!
    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!

  • XD_Darth_Sackboy

    YES!!!

  • Holy crap I WISH i was good a video editing ill have to find another way to enter maybe ill do the twitter contest lol those custom controllers and that arcade cabinet are amazing

  • is this available in singpore? this would be the best for a chrismas present

  • Did the cinematic files get fixed yet? Just wondering if I need to start practicing my Quark voice or not.

  • VehicleDestoryer

    Post…

  • DEREK OSGOOD PLEASE RESPOND!

    Are we allowed to use music in the background as long as it is 100% copyright free? I have a great track but do not want to be disqualified for using it. PLEASE RESPOND

  • I too would like to know if we can use copyrighted music!!

  • So we can’t even use music we’ve created?!

  • CLARK-MONSTER

    Why haven’t they started posting the Ratchet and Clank trivia on Twitter?
