Last Minute Ratchet & Clank Patch Stops Streamers From Spoiling The Movie

Today’s new Ratchet & Clank game is a re-imagining of the first game in the series, but it’s also a tie-in with an animated movie that doesn’t hit theaters until April 29. Sony disabled sharing late game movie cinematics just in the nick of time.


Sony deployed patch 1.02 to Ratchet & Clank at around 10 PM Eastern time last night, a couple of hours before the game went on sale. Most of the in-game cinematics are still fair game, with only a few that come towards the end giving players the old disabled streaming content message.

Keep in mind that many streamers use capture cards instead of PS4 streaming to share their gameplay with the world, so if you’re keen on seeing an unsullied animated feature later this month, best avoid streams altogether. Maybe unplug the internet too.


Oh, and don’t play Ratchet & Clank until later this month. It’s quite good, but you can resist.
