Ratchet & Clank Trilogy launches on PS Vita today

Play the classic PS2-era adventures on the go from today

Hey everyone. We’re happy to announce that the Ratchet Trilogy arrives on PlayStation Vita in the EU today. From us here at Insomniac, it’s been great to see the Idol Minds-developed ports of our original PS2 Ratchet adventures finding brand new fans, and even introducing new PS3-era Ratchet & Clank fans to our classic games.

Now, thanks to the efforts of our friends Mass Media, the Ratchet & Clank Trilogy is available for your PlayStation Vita. Enjoy Ratchet and Clank’s original three PS2 adventures on the go! We hope that fans will enjoy getting to bring these great games with them, and newcomers will enjoy three terrific games on their Vita.

Here at Insomniac, we’re still quite busy with Ratchet & Clank ourselves. We’re developing a re-imagining of the very first Ratchet & Clank game to launch on PS4 next year, which will launch alongside the Ratchet & Clank movie. So stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter feeds for all the latest there.

That’s all for now, we hope you enjoy Ratchet & Clank Trilogy on PlayStation Vita!

Great news, Ratchet and Clank on the go! Will definitely be purchasing later…


It’s worth noting that if the store listing is correct and it is cross buy, then the game can be bought for £13.49/£14.99 by taking up the PS3 offer that is currently running on the store.


Thanks for the info, I’ll have a look when the store update is live!

It’s cross buy as far as I’m aware

hoard_moard 04 July, 2014 @ 13:36

That’s actually really good news.


I’d love to get it but unfortunately I have to wait for some framerate details until I take the plunge. Fingers crossed it’s stable.


supposedly it’s actually quite decent someone got a copy of the game early and made some gameplay footage from what I can see it’s pretty stable.

So how is the framerate?


30fps but solid

30fps is fine by me. As long as we won’t see the drops like the Jak and Daxter collection had.

dark_angel69 02 July, 2014 @ 12:19

I’d like to know if Ratchet and Clank 2 has been given any subtitles in this version? PS3 doesn’t which is why I never finished it. Will need to pass on this if it’s the same


That is a crazy reason not to play games

Paris-SG_63 02 July, 2014 @ 12:37

@Suzzopher What about deaf people? Some people have diseases or handicaps and we should think about them!


Sorry misread this, I thought you meant the subtitles to the actual names of the game.

It’s been up on the store for a few days. YT reviews say framerate is good and the ports look great.

lumoplusjess 02 July, 2014 @ 12:34

I cant find it on the store yet, and I have the ps3 version but vita isnt in my download list yet. you got a link if it is available.
I know normally wouldnt be available until about 3pm

Madd-Dogg_3000 02 July, 2014 @ 12:27

says this on the store

• Buy this game for PS Vita or PS3™ to get it for both systems.
• After purchasing, head to your “Download List” and you’ll find this product ready to be downloaded.

Cazabean100 02 July, 2014 @ 12:36

I have been waiting all morning for this. Would really like to know when today I will be able to download and play?

Fred Dutton 02 July, 2014 @ 12:40

The store generally updates at around 3pm BST. Bear with us if it’s a little later than that – we have a really high volume of deals and discounts going live today.

Cazabean100 02 July, 2014 @ 12:44

Thank you for replying to me. I will try and contain my excitement for a bit longer :)

Except in the UK it doesn’t come out today according to the blog post…

Fred it’s defo cross buy isn’t it?


It has to be, otherwise the store is doing false advertisement since the PS3 Trilogy store page says that the game is crossbuy. :)

THUNDERCAT1973 02 July, 2014 @ 14:14

it better be or sony will be in big trouble, as it says its cross buy on the store page, if they dont it will be false advertisement

Fred Dutton 02 July, 2014 @ 14:27

It is indeed Cross Buy – if you buy the PS Vita version you get it on PS3 too.

Spade_The_Prinny 02 July, 2014 @ 12:55

are they going to be able to buy separately like the sly cooper and jak and daxter games ?

racing_sloth 02 July, 2014 @ 16:01


jellyhedgehog 02 July, 2014 @ 13:06

I just watched the gameplay video. It looks amazing. I’m so excited oooooh I just can’t hide it


What about suckers like me who bought the PS3 version on disc? Any scheme for us like there was with Q Force? I’d love these on Vita but I’m sick of having to buy the same game multiple times, having already bought the PS2 versions back in the day, then the PS3 remasters…

residentSteve 02 July, 2014 @ 13:20

Not more ps2 hand me downs for ps vita how about an exclusive r&c for ps vita.


We won’t get any new exclusive games from SCEA(nor maybe SCE at all), we have to deal with it…

I hope to see at least Into the Nexus and Gladiator

JediKnight246 04 July, 2014 @ 00:02

Better than not anything at all. They’re older games but still good and it’s not like it’s holding up other games.


Is this going to be like God of War were it’s crossbuy then you realise the PS3 version is cheaper? Because right now it is on sale for less than 23 dollars Australian!

alphastreamz 02 July, 2014 @ 13:40

I’ll wait for some reviews. If this one runs like the Jak & Daxter Trilogy then i’ll pass…

Blueberryboll 04 July, 2014 @ 22:35

Please Sony, commission a patch for Jak & Daxter on Vita. You’ll have my purchase of it when the game runs smooth!

ITACHI_U________ 02 July, 2014 @ 13:48

Bought the physical copy saturday in Belgium. But on ratchet and clank 2 I always get the c2-12828-1 error when trying to move from one planet to another, also between orbit planets which stops me from finishing a few missions and getting the map-o-matic etc. Really annoying, did the save corrupt troubleshooting but non did help (new save file, reformat memory card, system restore, … ) I demand a patch

deadfolk_ie 02 July, 2014 @ 14:04

Anyone from Sony confirm this is cross-buy?


Does anyone knows the file size of the game?

When I bought the PS3 version i got the Vita games but they downloaded as three seperate games not one installation with three games, so on my Vita I’ve got ratchet and clank as 881mb, ratchet and clank 2 as 1160mb and ratchet and clank 3 as 1453mb. Hope this helps

The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy (Cross-Buy PS3/Vita)(available from 4th July in UK/IRE)

4th of July for UK… … Genuinely angry about this after all the advertisement….


same here was looking very forward to playing this today.

GamerGeekGuy 02 July, 2014 @ 20:20

Made a EU account just for this (live in us, no announced release info). Thought it would come out today on psn, bit no…

GamerGeekGuy 02 July, 2014 @ 20:21



Thanks! Now all I need to do is wait for my local store to get the game in stock. For some reason, Sony always delivers to them a few days AFTER the supposed release date. Very annoying!

racing_sloth 02 July, 2014 @ 16:01

I’ve seen gameplay of this game. Looks very solid! Only issue is that it appears that there are some visual glitches in the first game, and there may not be multi-player in Up Your Arsenal. Correct me if I’m wrong, though.

looking at early youtube videos shows by the looks of things it runs well, So may pick this up on amazon once it goes under £20, as I already have the PS3 version on disc but would always like a portable version especially as its a great series to pick up and play

jellyhedgehog 02 July, 2014 @ 16:17

Here we go again with the wrong information. It’s out on Friday. Idiots. I bet there’s no apology either. This post will disappear like the borderlands 2 update one.


It is out today in the Eu so it’s not wrong.

jellyhedgehog 02 July, 2014 @ 17:10

Of course it’s wrong. It doesn’t mention it’s not out in UK or Ireland. I’m reading a post that says it’s out today. That is what it says. I can’t download it today so yes it’s wrong.


So bloody frustrating. :/

Gloom12356776543 02 July, 2014 @ 16:29

Hi, I am waiting for my retail copy (But Slovakia Post i think is one of the worst :) :) ) cant wait to play it ! any chance for Ratchet Gladiator PS Vita ? and what about new Ratchet and clank game for Vita ? thanks :)

OH MAN :P I can’t wait to see the Original R&C Game in PS4’o’Vision :P :P :P

That’s it, no other game needed on Vita now :-D


Great (!) I have to Wait two more days now. Oh well…

Nice the game is in store and if you bought the ps3 trilogy you can download the psVita versions for free :D!


Why the hell aren’t you releasing this today in the UK? GAME are already selling it, and have been for days!

Sort your bloody release schedule out!


I wonder if they realise that the UK is part of the EU….apparently they don’t. :/

Fred Dutton 02 July, 2014 @ 19:22

Unfortunately we’ve experienced some technical issues with today’s publish and clearly R&C has not yet gone live. The team are working on it and I hope to have an update for you asap.


When can we actually see any of those improvements and be able to download games when they should be available, or see discounts added when they should be discounted ( Lego Batman 2 still doesnt show as free ). Is it really that hard to update the store, something you do every week, without flaws after such an amount of time?


Is this UK only or coming to US also? I’d like to get this ASAP!

jon_tranter 02 July, 2014 @ 20:19

Its wednesday 2nd of july 2014 8:30 PM and from the PS EU blog that the july update the new content was going to be on the store from first tuesday of every month from now on CLEARLY NOT !!!!! I am getting annoyed by sony saying this date and that its not out on the date sony you need to get your act togeather

Martinbruce07 02 July, 2014 @ 20:45

cross buy i hope and still waiting to come ps store

jon_tranter 02 July, 2014 @ 21:02

It is cross buy look at the triligy page on the ps3 and it says cross buy :)

Just waiting for it to go live

jellyhedgehog 02 July, 2014 @ 21:18

It’s not live in the Uk until Friday. They forgot to mention that!!!!


Is it not Cross Save????

I already bought this for the PS3. D:

heptaHydrate 02 July, 2014 @ 22:15

I dont get it. I can see all three individual Ratchet & Clank games on the Vita Playstation Store, but no trilogy pack. Are we supposed to buy the games individually or will there be a trilogy pack with all games in one game file?

Fred Dutton 03 July, 2014 @ 11:14

Yes, the trilogy pack is going live now. Sorry to keep you waiting, we had some technical issues with this week’s Store publish.

stefan_1975 02 July, 2014 @ 22:19

I downloaded all three seperately three hours ago. i had to “purchase” them again for vita but the price was free since i bought the PS3 version in the sale this week. so yes it’s cross buy and yes they’re out. they’re just not under new games or sales or in my download list, i found them when i was looking for them in the store catalogue.


Hey I’m visiting the EU blog from the US! Hoping to maybe get a reply about release info in the US? It’s been such a quiet front, would love a July release confirmation but any kind of communication would be appreciated. Thank you :)

Fred Dutton 03 July, 2014 @ 11:14

As i understand it this an EU-only release at present.


24 hours later, still none the wiser. What’s up with the IGC guys. Poor communication always tastes bad especially when a subscription has been paid. Please tell us what’s going on.


How much will it cost and will it be in psn store on friday


It’s all ready in the EU store, I bought yesterday the PS3 version and downloaded the Vita version for free. :-)


where can you find them in the store, I can only see the first one?

Fred Dutton 03 July, 2014 @ 11:13

Thanks for your patience folks – and sorry to keep you waiting. This is being pushed live now and you should be able to see it within the next hour.


will be live In the uk today then?

jellyhedgehog 03 July, 2014 @ 12:01

So is it out in the UK today or not?


I don’t reckon it will be but I’m hoping for the best.

jellyhedgehog 03 July, 2014 @ 12:09

The first one has just appeared on the store but not able to download yet. But it’s looking hopeful.


Yer I see it but can’t download it. bloody tease lol.


I wish they would at least tell us if it is or not.

jellyhedgehog 03 July, 2014 @ 12:58

I’m guessing it’s not available to download today. I’m taking silence as a “no”.
