    I didn't cross-post the interview this because this was mentioned months ago, along with the film.

    I take it you've overlooked the webpage for this too :yes:

    I've still not played Nexus yet, nor completed the PS3 remake of the original trilogy. I'll definitely be keeping my eye on this, though. Really loved Tools of Destruction, Quest for Booty and Crack in Time. the R&C looks amazing on PS3, it's hard to image how much better they could look on PS4 :yep2:

    Of all the games I enjoyed across the PS2/PS3, I enjoyed the R&C series a little bit more. Always had a soft-spot for these two... humor, awesome weird weapons, highly detailed environments and just outright fun to play.

    Don't get me wrong, I've loved the R&C games since I mistakenly bought the first one -my girlfriend was raving about this game that looked like a cartoon and insisted I get it at lunchtime and instead of Sly Cooper I bought Ratchet & Clank.

    But after seven games (the original PS2 trilogy, skipped Deadlocked but played Size Matters on PSP, then ToD, QfB and CiT on PS3) I'm definitely a bit fatigued. Unless they do something new. Hell, I'd be happy with them completely rebooting the franchise and lose all the story baggage they've picked up over the years.

    Sony announced it during their 2014 E3 Press Conference and it got plenty of coverage on IGN, GameSpot, Polygon, Sony's own blog etc.

    Some weird amnesia thing occurring here :yes:

    Well it would most definitely benefit from being less blurry. The PS3 games were great but it's time to move on from low res blurry IQs and I'm sure a printing 1080p IQ will be just what we will get on the new gen.

    I didn't find the 3 PS3 games blurry at all. However when they when 30 fps everything went really blurry in motion....

    Also, I think they look better if you force the 1080p mode...

    Personally I found the IQ in R&C acceptable, very close to DVD quality, but slightly better of course. Point is, on ps4 the difference should be quite striking.

    I did't play original R&C, so I hope re-imaging will end up great [and with DriveClub level of IQ :D].

    That's the greatest screenshot gallery I've ever seen :mrgreen:
    Ohh and for what it's worth, the trailer for the movie actually looked pretty good :)

    I have high hopes that they can get back to their best with this game although history seems to be against that idea.
