After some confusion Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction is being released today in the U.S. Is this the family friendly system seller the Playstation 3 has been waiting for? Early reviews say so.

Many thought Insomniac’s new addition to the Playstation3 was going to be released in America on the 30th of this month, after the developer let us know that the little Lombax and his metal friend needed a bit more polish time. But what came as a surprise to us and even them, was that the printing of the game happened in double quick time.

The Delaystation3 is no more! This little baby was going to be hitting shelves early, and stores were showing their excitement by advertising that the game would available for purchase on the 23rd of October, a full week early then originally planned. The 23rd is here, and Ratchet and Clank are not far from making your Playstation3 feel a whole lot more “futuristic”.

So is this a quality title for PS3 owners and prospective PS3 buyers? To simply say yes would be an understatement. This is a game with qualities you will be hard pressed to find on any other system. From its bright and colorful action suitable for the entire family, to its sharp witted humour, and solid game play. The early reviews are in, and it appears that Ratchet and Clank is in position to be the classic holiday game Sony and their fans have been waiting for.

PSM, PSM3, and EGM gave the game a 9.5, 9.3, and 9.0 respectively. We will be posting our review of the game tomorrow, but in the mean time, check out the list of reviews that are currently available online below.
