Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong announced Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty is scheduled to come out on August 21. That’s next Thursday, you know around when Sony Computer Entertainment America updates the PlayStation Store too. While this isn’t confirmed from SCEA, it’s pretty likely we’re going to get the 2.75GB downloadable Ratchet game on the same day too. I can’t imagine Sony launching this in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan without thinking of other regions. If this happens you can get Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty early by just snagging it off the Asian store since the game is localized with Chinese and English text.
Update: As Rlan points out, it's coming out worldwide next week. I'm pulling this from the front page since it's not really "news" unless you want to play the game in Chinese.
