This page details one or more prototype versions of Ratchet: Deadlocked.

A demo build of the game was included in PS2 Demo Disc 53 from the May 2005 Australian PlayStation Official Magazine, five months before the final game was released. It has a plethora of various and highly interesting differences that are very noticeable when compared to the final game.

  • There is music that plays when the title screen appears.
  • The various menu options text are different.
  • There is strange control text and lock-strafe text visible at 0:27. It's very unfinished as it doesn't tell you what buttons you use for each function and a placeholder as this never appears in the final game when starting a new game or continuing on from where you stopped.
  • There is also some commentary text visible at 0:27. This would be repurposed for the commentary by Juanita and Dallas in the final game.
