Ratchet & Clank go gold on Playstation 3

  • Culver City (CA) - The iconic Playstation duo are closer than ever to their PS3 launch, with the announcement that development of Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction is finished.

    "The game is finished and will hit a store near you on October 30," writes Sony line producer Greg Phillips on the official Playstation Blog.  The game had been scheduled for an October 23 release but was pushed back so developers could finish last-minute details, according to the blog.

    Phillips also announced that a demo of the online platformer will be available by October 11. It will be the same demo that was showed to industry insiders at E3. We got some hands-on time with the demo during the July event and were very optimistic about it.

    After Crash Bandicoot and Spyro spiraled off to other consoles, Ratchet & Clank sort of became the unofficial Playstation mascots.  As a result, Tools of Destruction is expected to be one of the console's top sellers this holiday season.
