Ratchet and Clank collection release date revealed, plus demo bonus

Originally announced back in March, the Ratchet and Clank remastered HD collection was hit with a delay that put the game's release date into question. Today, Sony announced on the PlayStation Blog that the game is still coming, and will be hitting later this Summer.

The official release date they're currently offering is about a month and a half away on August 28, 2012. But they also had another announcement. To reward the fans for being so patient with them, they're also going to be including an exclusive (for now) demo of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.

It's a small gift, considering that demo will almost certainly make it to the PSN eventually, but Sly Cooper is awesome and we miss him so we'll take it. 

Ratchet and Clank Collection gathers together the original three PS2 games in the series: Ratchet and Clank, R&C: Going Commando, and R&C: Up your Arsenal. The re-release will feature gussied up graphics and the chance to experience their online modes if you weren't one of the few who bothered hooking up the PS2's online features.

    "chance to explore their online modes." I'm pretty sure UYA was the only one with multiplayer. Though It'd be cool if they threw it into the other two games for good measure. All in all, I couldn't be much happier. Now all we need is an HD remake of the SOCOM series, and we'll have all the best ps2 games remade.

    Oh god it comes out on the same day as Guild Wars 2. My money is going to go away more now...

    I think the original 3 games, as well as Deadlocked, are the best Rachet and Clank games. I can't wait for this.
