All pocket dimension locations in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart

The main feature of Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart are the titular rifts. The ability to seamlessly jump between dimensions without so much as a loading screen is what makes this game only possible on the PlayStation 5. While this mechanic is tied into the plot and used to fun effect, Insomniac didn’t just limit showing the idea of jumping into new dimensions to story moments but also applied them to pocket dimensions.

Pocket dimensions are essentially challenge areas hidden around each of the game’s planets. By finding and interacting with them, you will be transported into a new area where you must complete a unique platforming challenge for a special armor piece as a reward. There are 12 total pocket dimensions in the game, which you can spot as big purple crystals floating in the air, and while you only need to find one to earn the More Than Lint trophy, you will want to still want to do them all for the armor pieces you’ll get. If you’re on the hunt for these pocket dimensions, here’s where you can find them all and what rewards you will earn.

Corson V Nefarious City pocket dimension

The only pocket dimension in Nefarious City is far off to the northeast from the central market. You’ll notice a small island that doesn’t lead to anything on the map here. Go there and peak behind the building on the top-right corner of the area to find this pocket dimension.

This challenge involves platforming over a series of balloons from the parade and dispatching a few simple enemies at the same time. Make it to the end, and you’ll get the Robot Disguise helmet.

Sargasso Outpost L51 pocket dimensions

Sargasso has three pocket dimensions to track down and complete, and two of them are quite close together in Outpost L51.

The first pocket dimension is inside Rivet’s base. Just go inside and hang a left instead of right to find the crack in reality. This challenge is another platforming based one, only now you’ll be jumping over a series of explosive platforms. Stay quick on your feet and take advantage of your hover boots, and you’ll make it to the end and claim the Robot Disguise Boots.

The next pocket dimension is to the southwest. Find the island just to the west of the main island that leads to the southwest facility, and the rift is on the far edge. This challenge involves carefully shooting crates to give yourself a path and platforms. Take your time and don’t use any explosive guns, and you’ll make it to the end with little problem. The Robot Disguise Chest is your reward.

The final pocket dimension is part of the critical path and acts as the tutorial for riding Speedles. Just complete the mission, and you’ll get the Galactic Ranger.

Scarstu Debris Field Zurkie’s pocket dimension location

The only pocket dimension on this level is almost impossible to miss. As soon as you disembark your ship, head Northeast on the landing pads to spot this obvious purple rift. The twist on this challenge is how the platforms rotate on a timer from flat to vertical. Time your movements well, and you’ll pick up the Q-Force Helmet.

Savali Urfdah Mesa pocket dimension locations

The next two challenges are on Savali and are again quite close together. The first one is to the southwest, almost on the edge of the map. This one is focused on testing your wall-running skills. Time your jumps to avoid the explosives and enjoy your new Captain Starshield Helmet.

The other pocket dimension is just northwest of the first, up on a cliff. This one also deals with wall-running, and while it removes the explosive element, it ramps up the raw challenge. Keep at it, and you’ll earn your Lombax Praetorian Greaves.

Blizar Prime Blizon Mines pocket dimension location

The only pocket dimension to find in the Blizar Prime level can be found on the path heading northeast to where you pick up the Cook’s side mission. As you’re leaving the main hub, keep an eye on the left to spot the rift. This challenge has you needing to navigate invisible platforms that you can briefly see when hitting buttons placed along the way. They’re not too small, so you don’t have to be perfect, but it is quite tricky. If you can make it to the end, you’ll add the Galactic Ranger Chest to your collection.

Torren IV Molonoth Gulch pocket dimension location

After you get the Hurlshot on Torren IV and continue across the islands, you will go right by a pocket dimension. Rivet will even make a comment about it, so it is very hard to miss. You have another Speedle course waiting for you with no real tricks or traps. Cross the finish line and claim your Lombax Praetorian Helmet.

Cordelion Kedaro Station pocket dimension location

From the Furion Forge on Cordelion, go to the southeast while in the Other Dimension. The rift is right up against the wall in this room. The challenge here involves using your Shatterblast to knock down emergency rafts to use as temporary bounce pads. Jump to the end and check out the Captain Starshield Chest.

Ardolis Pirate Base pocket dimension location

Down in the Ardolis Pirate base, just below the walkway you cross when leaving the caves on the South end of the map, jump off onto the beach. Look behind you to spot the pocket dimension. This challenge is almost identical to the one on Sargasso, again using explosives, only with the addition of grappling. The prize is the Captain Starshield Boots.

Viceron Zoradoom Prison pocket dimension location

The final pocket dimension is on Viceron Zoradoom Prison. From the Zurkon vendor, go north and look for a hidden little storage room you can enter and jump into the final challenge. This time, you’ll need to master both Speedle racing and wall-running, so make sure you’re ready to ditch the bike when the time comes. Manage to clear this obstacle course, and you will finally earn the Lombax Praetorian Chest.

All photo-op locations in Spider-Man 2
Miles sitting on top of a building at sunset.

Get me pictures of Spider-Man! Well, actually, in Spider-Man 2 you never actually have to snap any pics of either Spider-Man. As established in the first game, Peter has already moved on from his job as a photographer for the Bugle and is focused completely on science (when not saving the day, of course). When that doesn't work out well enough to pay the bills, he falls back on his old freelance photography gig to help make ends meet by going to key spots around the map to snap some shots to sell. These are among the most numerous icons you will see pop up on your map as you play, and while each one only rewards two City Tokens for completing them, they take a few seconds at most to get the perfect shot. Let's take a tour of the city to find all the photo-op locations in Spider-Man 2.
All photo-op locations

Photo-ops will populate the map in batches as you go through the game, but ultimately, there will be 23 unique spots you will need to stop and get a picture of to complete the entire quest. To snap the perfect picture, swipe down on the touchpad to open up your camera app when near the target area and look for whatever subject you need to capture. This will be obvious in nearly all situations, such as the above mascots, or a piece of art, or even entire buildings. The camera itself will help you as well. If you're in range, the text will let you know if the subject is in view, obscured, or in focus. Once the ring is green, that shot will count and you can hit R1 to take the shot. After each one, you get a little bit of context and dialogue about whatever it is you are submitting.

All Prowler Stash locations in Spider-Man 2
Miles checking his phone in spider-man 2.

After the events of Miles Morales, the Prowler has officially retired by the time Marvel's Spider-Man 2 begins. While he can't help Miles out in action anymore, his uncle still has some secrets in store for his super-powered nephew. Before he was forced to hang up his hood, Prowler had a series of resource caches stashed all over the city. With him no longer able to make use of them, he tells you how to find and open them to get the goodies inside. This is one of the best ways to get your hands on Rare Tech parts needed for upgrades in the game. Let's track down all these hidden Prowler Stashes in Spider-Man 2.
All Prowler Stash locations

There are nine total Prowler Stashes in Spider-Man 2, with some locked until you get to certain points in the story to keep you from looting them all at once. Once you get close, you will see a section of a building, almost always the rooftop, glowing in an outline of the zone where the stash is. Enter and solve the little puzzle to find and grab the rewards. Here is where you can find each stash:

PS5 slim vs. PS5: everything you need to know about the new PS5 model
The slimmer PS5 console laying on its side.

Sony consoles have always gotten multiple versions and editions ever since the original PlayStation 1. As technology becomes cheaper and more advanced, refreshed models that are both smaller and less expensive to produce typically come out a couple of years into a console's life cycle, and we have now hit that point for the PS5. The PS5 slim, as it is being referred to, is a smaller version of the launch models, and will eventually become the standard unit available to consumers once the stock of existing PS5s runs out. However, is this version worth getting if you're an existing owner, or is it only for new purchasers? There's also the question about which of the two versions to buy. To answer all these questions, let's compare the PS5 slim to the OG PS5.

Let's start with the most important part, which is whether or not there's more power under the hood of the PS5 slim compared to the launch models. No, the PS5 slim is not in any way more powerful than an existing PS5. This is not a PS5 Pro, which is currently just a rumor. Games will not look, run, or play any better or worse on either version. The only difference in terms of specs is that the slim versions have slightly more storage space at 1 TB compared to 825GB, which is just a small 175GB upgrade. There's nothing here that makes it worth buying a new system when you can expand the storage of your console yourself.
Obviously, a slim model would mean that this new version would be smaller than the frankly comically large launch version. While that's true, it isn't a huge reduction in size. The PS5 Slim disc version weighs 3.2 kilograms (18% less that the original PS5) while the discless version weighs 2.6kg (24% less), and both are 30% smaller by volume.
Once again, you will have the option to choose between an all-digital and standard version of the PS5 Slim. However, unlike the original discless PS5, the new version will give you the option to add a disc drive later on if you purchase a separate detachable drive.
The current PS5 models are priced at $400 and $500 for the digital and standard versions, respectively. While the PS5 slim standard version that includes the disc drive will remain at $500, the discless version will get a price increase to $450. This price increase had already been seen in other territories outside the U.S., but will now be introduced here once these new versions launch. It is also worth mentioning that the detachable disc drive you can get to upgrade your discless version will cost $80, meaning you would spend more to buy the digital version and add the drive than you would by simply buying the version with the drive already included.
