It seems as though Sony might have taken the phrase “high definition remake” all too literally, as Ratchet: Gladiator HD won’t be playable unless you have an HD TV, unlike the three previous Ratchet reworks.
The listing for the game on the PlayStation Store says “High definition display required. This game does not support standard definition TVs.” which seems odd, though seems to be the reason for the delay of the remake. Could this become the norm in the future? A lot of people still use standard definition TVs.
It costs £11.99, although it’ll be free if you bought QForce due to the delay for the PS Vita version. It should now be available in the “disc benefits” section if you bought a retail copy, or elsewhere on the PlayStation Store if you have downloaded QForce.
It also features 3D support, one of the few new releases this year to do so.
