Next Wednesday’s new Ratchet & Clank game is a re-imagining of the first game in the series, but it’s also a tie-in with an animated movie that doesn’t hit US theatres until April 29, and Australian theatres until July 28. Sony disabled sharing late game movie cinematics just in the nick of time.
Sony deployed patch 1.02 to Ratchet & Clank at around 12pm AEDT yesterday (10pm Eastern time), a couple of hours before the game went on sale in the US. Most of the in-game cinematics are still fair game, with only a few that come towards the end giving players the old disabled streaming content message.
Keep in mind that many streamers use capture cards instead of PS4 streaming to share their gameplay with the world, so if you’re keen on seeing an unsullied animated feature later this year, best avoid streams altogether. Maybe unplug the internet too.
Oh, and don’t play Ratchet & Clank until July either. It’s quite good, but you can resist.
