The Ratchet & Clank Collection
, HD updates of the first three PS2 Ratchets, will be out via retail and PSN in North America on August 28 for $29.99. The online multiplayer in Up Your Arsenal
, which is really the title of that game, is still functional in the PS3 version, meaning a lot more people will get to experience it now that it no longer requires a PS2 peripheral.
As a bonus to make up for the longer wait in North America – a bonus that just happens to be promotional in nature – the Ratchet & Clank Collection
includes "exclusive first access" to a demo for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time
