Ratchet & Clank


Ratchet & Clank

On a fine day on the planet Veldin, a furry Lombax named Ratchet is working on his spaceship when a robot crash lands near his home. Ratchet recovers the robot from the wreckage, naming him “Clank.” Clank shows Ratchet a recording of Chairman Drek of the Blarg race. In the recording, Drek explains that his home planet has become so polluted it is now uninhabitable. Drek’s solution is to build a new planet for his race by extracting areas from other planets! What’s worse is that Drek has developed a superweapon called the Deplanetizer which will destroy Veldin to make room for his new planet. Fearing that Drek will destroy everything in his path, Ratchet and Clank team up for their first explosive adventure to save the galaxy.

Sony thinks the quality of its games would decrease by following the Xbox Game Pass model

The PlayStation Plus will soon undergo its transformation, but some things will not change… Indeed, the Japanese manufacturer still does not intend to include its exclusives in its subscription service as soon as they are launched.

The fact that Microsoft adds all of its exclusives to its service from the day they are released has partly forged the fame of Xbox Game Pass . Thus, a subscriber is able to play the latest news for barely ten euros. This strategy is rather advantageous for the consumer, but it does not really interest the competition… and in particular Sony!


Games necessarily less good?

Upon the announcement of the company's latest financial results, Hiroki Totoki (the head of Sony Financial Group) reiterated PlayStation's stance on not including PlayStation Studios productions in PlayStation Plus at launch. . He states that "  if we distribute AAA games on PS5 via a subscription service, we may have to reduce our investment, and we are concerned that this may deteriorate the quality of our first-party games  ".

Totoki makes it clear that he is not targeting any competitor (the Xbox Game Pass, not to mention it) and that Sony prefers to opt for appropriate research and development costs in order to ensure optimal quality for its games. It therefore aligns itself with the words of Jim Ryan, who had already spoken on this subject last month.
