Sony Confirms PS Vita Version of Ratchet & Clank: Q-Force Delayed Until Further Notice


Sony have today announced that the PS Vita version of Ratchet & Clank: Q-Force, which was originally due for release last year, has been delayed until further notice so that the developer, Tin Giant, can spend more time perfecting the game.

Ratchet & Clank: Q-Force was originally expected to be released last year, when the PS3 Version was released, however since then Sony have continiously being delaying the game in a bid to create the best portable Ratchet and Clank experience for the PS Vita, as a statement from Sony explains:

“As many of you know, when Ratchet & Clank: QForce launched for the PS3 this past November, we announced that the PS Vita version would be coming out later in January 2013 to ensure the best portable Ratchet & Clank experience possible.
Our friends at Tin Giant have been working night and day to bring Insomniac’s PS3 game to the PS Vita system and to provide our fans with a great game. While the original delay has helped us make the game better, we still need more time to bring the game up to the standards expected by our fans.
In order to do this, the launch date for Ratchet & Clank: QForce for PS Vita has moved to Spring 2013. We realise that this delay may be disappointing for our fans, but please know that we are doing our best to get the game into your hands as soon as possible.”

To compensate players for the delay, Sony have announced that anyone who owns the PS3 Version of the game and were waiting for the PS Vita version are now entitled to a free download of Motorstorm RC.

In order to obtain a download code for Motorstorm RC, which will be valid for up to 60 days, Players must have play Ratchet & Clank: Q-Force while connected to the internet before the end of february. Everyone who does this will receive an e-mail explaining how to redeem their free motorstorm RC Code.

While its nice to see Sony offer this compensation majority of Vita owners will most likely already own Motorstorm RC, thus making this promotion irrelevant – but at least they tried.

In terms of a new release date for the Vita version, Sony will announce a new release date when they believe that work on the game is complete.
