Uncharted 2, Ratchet & Clank Find a Home


Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune has already had the privilege of receiving a PlayStation Home space with Sully’s Bar. The sequel, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves however, hasn’t gotten any news on a space – until now. Plus, Ratchet & Clank make their long awaited debut in the PS3 application.

With two AAA PS3 titles launching alongside each other in October, it makes sense that PlayStation Home would like to put them in the spotlight as much as possible. First, the Ratchet & Clank space will feature several mini-games, plus some music that sounds like it’s from an actual title. There is also a firing-range in the space, and enemies change depending on range you are playing on – Past, Present, or Future.

An apartment is also launching alongside the space, disappointingly though, it is not Ratchet & Clank’s actual apartment from the series. The apartment though does have three spaces, and a great view of space from the basement. Oh, and did we mention there’s also a Ratchet costume for your avatar?

The Uncharted 2 Home space closes in on Nepal, one of the star points of the title. This space also has several mini-games to choose from, but one of the best games to appear is called “Fortunate Thieves”. This game is centered around terrain changes, with treasure being hidden on certain tiles. Players are allowed to choose which terrain they can start on, and each player gets a card that could the terrain drastically. These cards can stall players, and give you a chance for the treasure.

Of course, with usually every space in PlayStation Home comes a reward of some sort. Look back on PlayStation LifeStyle for all incoming Home news. And while you’re waiting, take a look at these screenshots from the Ratchet & Clank space. Unfortunately, no Uncharted 2 shots were available.
