Ratchet & Clank Vita: Sony’s silence causing Insomniac ‘frustration’

Thursday, 31st January 2013 08:44 GMT By Dave Cook

Ratchet & Clank QForce – or ‘Full Frontal Assault’ if you’re in America – was developed by Insomniac Games, but the PS Vita build is being created by Tin Giant. However, it’s nowhere to be seen, and Insomniac games has expressed frustration over Sony’s silence over the matter.

Insomniac responded to fan question over the issue on its official Facebook page. The post in question has since been removed, but Polygon managed to nab it before it was nuked.

It reads:

Hey everyone,

We know you’ve been asking about and waiting for Full Frontal Assault for Vita.

Insomniac cannot make any comment about the game. We have repeatedly asked Sony and Tin Giant for an update to share with our fans. They have not provided any update we are allowed to share.

We are sorry for any disappointment, but there is nothing we’ve authorized to release publicly. Trust us in that we share your frustration, and have been passing your comments on to Sony, we also advise you contact Sony directly to share your disappointment and frustration.

As soon as they give us an update we can share with you, we will.


Insomniac is continuing its support for QForce on PS3 in the meantime, and while it’s supposed to be a cross-buy title with Vita, it seems gamers will have to wait for the privilege of playing it on their shiny OLED screen.

Thanks Shacknews.

    There is two ways to look at this, yes Sony and TG should let us know what’s happening but tbh if it bothers Insomniac that much, maybe they should’ve developed it themselves instead of passing the buck.

    Man Sony really pisses me off. The reason why i still don’t have a VITA is because they’re not even trying.

    @#2 I sincerely doubt ANY corporation would spend millions of dollars on R&D, Man hours, marketing, shipping, and developing software, would stop “trying” to make the platform a success.
    They’ve even admitted they’ve had trouble finding 3rd party devs to develop for it.
    I doubt Sony would abandon the PSVita…
    I’ll wait to buy a PSVita once it has something I really, really, want to play. I bought my PSP for Final Fantasy 7; Crisis Core, and it remains my only real reason for keeping it.
    If someone would say, “You spent all that money just to play one game?”
    I would reply, it was worth it to me.
    Other people can’t put value on my money. (=
