Screenshot overload: Latest Jak and Ratchet & Clank images

We've just received a clutch of new shots of PS2 platformer threequels Jak III and Ratchet and Clank 3, which are currently being developed by Naughty Dog and Insomniac Games respectively.

Little in the way of information about either game has been released as yet beyond this vague statement from director of product marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America, Ami Blaire: "We are delighted to continue our relationship with two of the most talented and imaginative development teams in the industry.

"Consumers want more from traditional platform games and Naughty Dog and Insomniac Games have made strides to implement technology innovation in order to raise the industry standard and invigorate the genre. The upcoming sequels will continue to push the boundaries as both teams incorporate revolutionary gameplay elements." Sounds good. We'll bring you more on both games as soon as we have it.

Both games are due for an autumn release in the US and should hit UK shelves very shortly after
