Ratchet & Clank demo incoming

A playable demo of Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction, recently shown at this year's E3,will be hitting PS3's PlayStation Network on, well, any day that Sony chooses. The demo is finished, polished and done - all we're waiting for is Sony to hit the button marked "make demo go now."

"We have a rough idea [of when the demo will come out]," reveals Ryan Schneider, marketing bigwig at developer Insomniac, "but you can never know."

We expect the demo will hit PSN in much the same way as yesterday's Heavenly Sword gameplay snippet - almost out of the blue, and without much warning. Nice to be surprised, though, isn't it?

In an interview with website Shacknews, Schneider also announced that Insomniac isn't done with releasing new bits for Resistance: Fall of Man. "We're always working on enhanced functionality and new content," he explained, though we'll have to wait and see exactly what shiny baubles Insomniac has in store for us.
