Insomniac leaves Sony exclusivity behind in new shooter Fuse | EDGE

EDGE: "First it was Overstrike, and now it’s Fuse. It seems appropriate that Insomniac’s first game to appear on a non-Sony console has suffered a crisis of identity, but it’s still disappointing to have watched it slough off a visual style that recalled Team Fortress 2 and exchange it for something with less flair. It was necessary, argues Ted Price, as part of a rejig that moved the alien substance Fuse to the centre of the gunplay as well the narrative. Freed of the stylised nature of the previous approach, Fuse is better able to communicate the violent outcomes of its creative weapons."

Well the game shows signs being heavily influenced by EA.

classic2001267d ago (Edited 1267d ago )

I bet they are realizing that EA is anti freedom right now when it comes to a person putting out games. Anyone can see that the changes to fuse graphical style and mood was from EA no matter what insomniac is trying to say.

I hope they go to someone else or back to sony when they finish this game because I still don't see it selling.

i loved the trailer when they first showed it, then we finally got to see this utter crap generic game with some crappy looking game play :/

That and I swear Insomniac already declared this a long while ago after Resistance 3, the series itself not even doing well at all...

That and Insomniac simply were 2nd-party devs, they didn't have any 'Ties' with, but they have to focus on gaining profit or risk ending up becoming like THQ so, this is an obvious move..... spread out and be multiplatform.

'Leaves Sony Exclusivity' sounds like it was made just for shock factor and hits, when any gamer or PS3-user already knew Insomniac was going to make multiplatform games now.... -.-

DeadlyFire1266d ago

They likely are relying heavily on the publisher to fund the game as well. So EA has some say, but still it could be alot better than what most expect. Its not a first party EA title. They have some input, but the core of the development is in Insomniac's hand.

gaminglives1267d ago

We were quite taken by Overstrike when they showed it at the 2011 EA conference, but FUSE doesn't appear to have the same sense of character, which is a shame.

BISHOP-BRASIL1267d ago

I really hope they still get everything right within the crazy weapons (what I like to call the Ratchet & Clank post effects, you imagine and want crazy weapons for everything), still looking forward to it... But indeed, it's not as impressive as Overstrike.

I'm not surprised though. They argued they were lefting Sony for have better creative control over their games just to go out there and hug EA... Of all publishers, EA. We all knew it would eventually happen.

When the first impression of a shooter is reminiscent of the failure Haze, you know the games in trouble.

Megaton1267d ago

Looks like the same soulless ooze that drips from all of EA's other orifices.

Megaton1267d ago

Yep. Ruined that series too.

DasTier1267d ago

I wouldn't know, I haven't played since the first. I still love BF3 though. Yet the BFBC2 is superior.

Megaton1267d ago

I like Battlefield as much as I like CoD, which is to say I don't like Battlefield.

kostchtchie_1267d ago

Mass Effect ruined...... Correct
Dead space ruined...... Correct
Dragon Age ruined...... Correct
C&C Generals ruined ...... Likely
Mirrors Edge ruined...... Don't bother EA you only fk it up

yeah keep up the epic work EA you are on a kill streak

ironfist921267d ago

I was hoping for a Mirror's Edge sequel, but after EA's latest "efforts", Im glad they havent ruined yet another gem.

Sandmano1267d ago

Well cant say theyl be sorely missed...

Servbot1267d ago

Precious few people know/care about Fuse. I love Insomniac but I can't see this game selling well at all.

Hanso1267d ago

yes even pachter predictet for fuse 5 Million sales..
so atomic bomba confirmed for fuse

grailly1267d ago

hopefully they'll push it back a bit and release it cheaper... I'de get it if it's in anyway similar to the coop in resistance 2.

Blastoise1267d ago

I wouldn't count on it lol

I'd love a fully expanded Resistance 2 co-op mode game though, I'd totally buy that
