The lights are on
What was teased earlier today, has now been officially confirmed. Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus is coming exclusively to PlayStation 3 this year.
The last two Ratchet games, All 4 One and Full Frontal Assault, were experiments in the Ratchet world to a certain degree, but Insomniac says that it wants to return to the series' roots. Insomniac's community lead James Stevenson says, "It feels like the time is right to revisit Ratchet’s personal story arc," on PlayStation's blog showcasing the game.
You can check out the announcement trailer below which shows the Ratchet & Clank gameplay we are all familiar with, along with Dead Space-style anti-gravity sequences in space, as well as Portal 2-style excursion funnels.
The game will be available this holiday as a PSN downloadable game, as well as a retail release for $29.99. Right now the game is a PlayStation 3 exclusive. It's unclear if the game will release on PlayStation Vita, as well.

It's a smaller game? *Sigh* Oh well... I'm sure it will be great, however
A bit disappointed that it's not a Ratchet and Clank title for the ps4,but this will still be an amazing game.
For that price I'm definitely in.
Too good to be true. Finally a true ratchet and clank game! I just played the hd collection and those games hold up so well.
Eh. Not sure another downloadable R&C is what we need. I'd rather they cool off for the remainder of the year and get to work on R&CFutureFuture for the PS4. And no more gimmicky multiplayer games no one wants.
Yesss! Very excited for this and crazy price makes this an easy day one buy for me. 2013 has been and continues to be an amazing year.
Thus was it foretold in the Sly Cooper test chamber.
