On Sunday April 22 Insomniac Games is going to be featured on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition with a new character in Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, James Westbrook. After learning of the family’s two separate hardships, one being an accident that left Westbrook paralyzed, and his favorite activity was playing and designing video games, Insomniac Games went to work on making a digital replica of him. Instead of taking a month to make the model, Westbrook’s character was completed in one week and in Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction James will pilot a flying saucer. To make sure James gets to play his character SCEA has bestowed the family with a PS2, PSP, a PS3 and a large quantity of games. You can see the new character plus some additional footage of Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction in this week’s episode.
