    I'll be watching this one. I have fond memories of the games. What I'd really like to see is a Sly Cooper movie.

    I always thought Sly would work better as an animated series, specially if they want to highlight the mutlitple locations and villains with different heists.

    Either way, I'm excited for this one.

    I do wonder what avenues this could open up if it is indeed successful. I agree with GSR that Sly is more suited to a TV series than a film. LBP is something that would fit that too. Perhaps they'd fast track their oft-rumored Uncharted/Shadow of the Colossus adaptions if it worked out.

    Can someone explain Ratchet and Clank to me a little bit? Specifically the gameplay. I often see it referred to as a platformer, which is what draws me to the series. However, whenever I watch a trailer, or even play a demo, it just seems like a not very good third person shooter, which turns me away from it.

    The platforming is definitely toned down in most Ratchet games. Only Quest for Booty has a focus on it. It's really all just about experimenting with the different weapons and having fun with them.

    Ratchet and Clank looks like a Pixar film. Ive always thought it should be adapted into a movie.

    Very excited about this, I love the Ratchet and Clank games. It would be awesome to have this lead into more quality animated video game based films. I'd love to see a really good CG Uncharted film over a live-action version.

    I love the game series...but the last two releases haven't really been for me...more MP focused and less story focused. I'm sure that's great for some though!

    And with FUSE getting mediocre reviews, I wonder whats happening to Insomniac? :( I hope they return to Ratchet in a big way.

    Yeah, I am really curious on why their quality seems to be dropping lately. I want to say it might have something to do with them trying to go multiplatform...

    I mean, the last Ratchet and Clank wasn't a BAD thing...they were just experimenting with something different and hey, some people loved it.

    I DO think going multiplatform (like with FUSE) can created more pressure on a studio.

    This movie is more or less my childhood's dream. However, I am a bit confused about where they're going to go with it. I was thinking the movie was going to go back to the roots of the series, tell the story of how Ratchet and Clank met, and share their first adventure again. However, I can't really tell if the story is getting switched or they're picking up immediately where the series was at in the video games. I'm a little hesitant to get my hopes up, but I'm going to watch this movie regardless.
