Ratchet & Clank HD Trilogy finally has a solid release date across the PAL regions.

R&C HD Collection was originally listed in Europe for a May 16th release, before slipping to “early June.” North America, meanwhile, will get the collection in “Fall 2012.”

Cue the Europeans whining about a further pushed back date even though they still get it at least 3 months before North America in 3... 2... 1...

About time we finally got something before America. It doesn't really bother me because I rarely buy games on release anymore, but 90% of the time, we're the ones having to wait last for staggered game releases...

Why in gods name does the UK get it 2 days later than Europe? This constant delay is complete bullshit.

@ All the NA saying at least we get it earlier.

1. You get additional bonuses for the wait
2. You'll also be unhappy if the game gets pushed back 3x so it ends up coming out in 2013 rather than Fall this year but I somehow don't expect you'll have that issue.

1) You get every other game before us. Whether that's 2-3 days or entire months.
2) This is a collection game. The entire game is already out on PS2 given you buy the three games on their own without trophies.
3) When the NA Region gets it you'll get extra content as part of a special celebration that we european gamers WON'T be a part of.
4) That last one? Never happens for us european gamers, we just have to deal with the time we have to wait.

We're not complaining about you guys. Why do you not understand that? I don't think NA Gamers are directly responsibly for this, we just want you to understand how annoying it is when we have to normally wait ages for these titles and now it's the other way around your complaining despite the fact that it's not technically even a new game and your getting bonus content for having to wait.

To everyone...

I don't get all the squabbling (mostly from my side of the pond). Im from US and I have consistently seen how 99% of the time, we get everything before EU, Asia, etc. So, now, the rest of the world gets an HD collection a few months before us? Good for them. We will eventually get it.

Why cant we all just be happy that WE WILL ALL GET AN HD COLLECTION OF R&C! Whether its today, tomorrow or later this year.

I love you all!

The thing is the only problem I really have is how Insomniac mentioned American gamers would receive extra content as part of a celebration of a kind of anniversy celebration of the company and of their fans. I'm a big fan of Ratchet and Clank as well as Resistance so to me it felt a little like because I was in the european region and not the North America region it means I'm not allowed to be a part of that.

Sometimes it's like american companies forget it's not just americans who are big fans of the things they make. I'm not saying it's their fault they can't include us europeans but they could at least not make it feel like it means we're not as important. Take Fringe for example, at the last comic-con Joshua Jackson implied all their biggest fans were at that event. I found out about Fringe after watching one episode and was hooked immediately, the next day I spent £50 snagging the season 1&2 boxset just so I could make sure I was ready for Season 3 but according to Joshua I'm not as big a fan as someone in the US. Like I said though it's not about us hating you guys, I don't. It'd be unfair to be like that just becasue you fortunate to live in the NA region but still just understand sometimes we european gamers are gonna want to bitch for the sake of bitching, if not just to let off steam (Plus I'm not a fan of the way us british insult you guys just to make that clear)

There was discussion about this on Insomniac's twitter yesterday. Essentially, the bonus for NA users is to make up for the 3+ month wait. It is not favoritism for NA, it's a "thanks for putting up with SCEA's BS delay" gift.

Also, they said it's not even final that they are doing it. They want to, but have to get approval I guess.

Either way, no matter what country it is, a 3+ month delay in 2012 is INEXCUSABLE. PERIOD.

@27 I agree a 3+ mouth is inexcusable and I don't understand it at all even if the NA was last to get this why 3+ whole months! yeah we do get releases first ALOT but the EU and Asia are never far behind most of the time less then a month whats all this about a delay gift unless its extra ratchet and clank game (which would be unfair to others) I could care less about some collectable doll or pics

Worth noting that when MGS HD released in NA, in like 2011, the EU had to wait 4 months for the same game despite Konami saying it was to "polish the game"

It was the same game, still had the same bugs (such as not playing in HD buggering trophies) and while still kicked ass, 4 months?

Does anyone remember when America got resistance 2 a month before the uk we didn't get a special edition for are wait. no America got the special edition and got it a month early we just got the normal game and that was a new game not a hd remake, by the time we got it all the Americans kicked are ass as they was all supreme commanders with everything unlocked.

Honestly I don't know why anyone bitches about anything with gaming releases... Whatever, we will get it at some point and if you don't like it then get it shipped lol...

Anyways though... EU might be getting it earlier but us NA people are getting some kinda added content that EU isn't getting which further spoils us... So no one really has the right to bitch about anything, just sit down, shut up already and wait for our fall release...

And I just want to point out to everyone that obviously nothing is good enough for that Insomniac said back when people were asking for Resistance 1 trophy patch that they weren't doing that AND they had no intentions of making a Ratchet and Clank HD Collection. We should all be very happy that either they changed their minds or Sony just took it and did it anyways. Just saying...

Why complain? When this game comes out, it will be the happiest gaming moment for nearly all of us in NA. Three cheers for the Canadian voice talent of Clank for once again warming our PS3's hearts. May his Megatron days be remembered for us Beast Wars (Beasties) fans.

The only thing I'm pissed about is that this is coming out so close to Borderlands 2, (according to Gamestop 2 weeks apart) I'm not gonna have time to finish this before Borderlands 2 comes out. Otherwise the only reason everyone is bitching Pal Territories are getting it first is they're jealous.

You know what? I have a suggestion, how about we all just admit that it's generally annoying when anyone gets something over another group of people whether that's console exclusives, region exclusives or any other form of content that's kept from everyone else. A few days is ok but three months?! That's insane. I actually want to know why it'll take so long.

We shouldn't be angry at each other though, we should be angry at the companies for picking favourites with us and turning us against one another with this annoying bullshit. The only reason I can think of as to why Insomniac would give you US gamers extra content and make you wait three months is so they can watch us tear each other apart for kicks and giggles.

That would be fair but understand that we always have a delay. This happens to the EU all the time and we've never once got a "Here's for having to wait" bonus. Like I mentioned above I don't think anyone over here would have a problem if it wasn't for Insomniac making it look like the delay is to give their "REAL" fans a neat bonus. The real fans here appreantly being americans.

I live here in NA and I think it's great you guys it first! I've read most of your guys comments and you're right. It is bullshit for you guys. I think it's crap that you have to wait for most releases. I have no problem waiting for this game because I have plenty others to play. I think all games should be released simultaneously. Well, expect for those that need to be localized however. :D
