Official PlayStation French-Language Forum Community Manager @Dark0ss93 just announced via twitter that Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus will be available on November 6 2013 as part of a PlayStation Vita Bundle. The game will be included as a wifi-voucher and additionally the bundle will also include a 4gb memory card.
After the tweet was sent out I personally reached out to @Darkoss93 in regards to the markets in which the bundle would be available, which he confirmed as Europe and North America.
Interestingly enough it was only a week ago Insomniac’s Community Manager James Stevenson was quoted as saying that “We (Insomniac) haven’t announced a Vita version at this time.”.
No news yet on pricing.
Insomiac reached out to me via twitter refuting the leak and stating that neither they, nor Sony have announced the existence of a Vita bundle or version of the game at all.
By no means is this post an official confirmation, it is however interesting to note that the source of the “leak” also leaked the release of Injustice: Gods Among Us on Vita not long ago.
Due to growing concerns we reached out to SCEE for comment regarding the legitmacy source, despite @Darkoss93’s listed position and claim to privileged information. SCEE were kind enough to offer us the following response:
“is a member of the French PlayStation Community on PlayStation Forum who organises online events on PS Vita games. He has no official role and cannot be considered as a representative for our company.
His Twitter activity is totally personal. He has been asked to update his Twitter profile accordingly”
We have since redacted the official status of the source in response to the development.
