Two more for Ratchet & Clank

Two more for Ratchet & Clank

Now we are finally allowed to show you more than the first two hours of Ratchet & Clank, here is a couple of new videos of this excellent episode. Inside, you'll get a sneak peek at some of the exotic planets which await you in the game, but we've also put up a stress test video showing that despite a few drops, the framerate is doing a good job at maintaining enough frames per second to make the game enjoyable even in worst case scenarios.

It would be interesting to see GPU time spent on handling particle / physics calculations. This game looks pretty impressive given the lower end hardware in the PS4. I have it pre-ordered and hope it arrives tonight to play with my son!

You kids forget when making games that the hardware is only a quarter of it, then you have to have good software, engine, and teams that know how to use it all well together. REMEMBER A PC CAN IN THEORY BE A POWERFUL MACHINE DEPENDING ON THE HARDWARE AND ITS AGE, BUT THERE ARE PLENTY OF LACKLUSTER, POOR PERFORMANCE GAMES FOR IT ALSO..... It basically comes down to weather you care more about hardware and the name brand of what's in your PC or just the love and nostalgia of "Video Games". Unfortunatly this generation(PS3/Xbox360 gen kids) and the want to be PC Master Race youth only care about the later.

Gamersyde, I know you mentioned a few, very short instances there were 1-2 fps drops. But its fair to also mention there were many instances where the frame rate showed that it went above 30fps.

It might be the plugin bug we have.

Has anybody put it to Insomniac Games yet why this game is such a great price? Because I don't think its up to Sony. I say that because I think God of War 3 Remastered was priced higher than this at launch.
Can't wait to see what else they can achieve this gen. Gamestop is actually publishing an underwater game they are currently working on.

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite that's a pretty big deal, as its probably the biggest stumbling block for the tech. (35 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Stuff like inside out tracking and eye tracking, as well as motion sickness solutions should be in place. We've already got a product in development that claims to have eradicated that already (35 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The potential of it is massive. More so than what traditional gaming now is. Second gen is going to be very interesting. (37 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite We're sort of being spoon fed bit sized "experiences" that either work or don't. I suppose that's part of the freshness of it, though. I just wish some big devs would get more involved. (38 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Ironically, though, the VR scene is also playing it safe. Too safe. There's not enough big risk titles like RE7. (39 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I can't really wrap my head around being dismissive of indie games. That's a pretty broad label. (3 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus put and end to corridor/cinematic/c utscene/qte/playforyousoyouwon'tmissathi ousoyouwon'tmissathing ng experiences, and start to see more games like Prey/BotW and the sort. Nuts&Bolts is an awesome game, as well. We need N&B2 (5 Hours ago)
