Could there be a problem with the biggest PS3 game of the year, Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction? GR Global Editorial Director Stephen Pierce has this to say:
"Last night I was playing a box fresh Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction on a box fresh PS3. The console was purchased on Saturday from Virgin. The final boxed copy of the game was sent to the GR office early last week."
Above: Normal gameplay followed by screen of death
"I had got to the Planet Mukow, about four or five planets into the game. I completed the first Arena Challenge in the Imperial Fight Festival and headed back to my spacecraft to fly to another planet. I pressed the triangle button to enter the craft and the screen went black and some numbers appeared in the top left hand corner. The game froze."
"I reloaded and attempted to leave the planet a further four times and the same thing happened each time. I don't know if I've got a defective machine, copy of the game, or what?"
GR will investigate further, but anyone else having trouble with Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction pleaselet us know in our forum now.
