Ted Price " At Insomniac, we’ve always been transparent with our fans. It’s important to us that our fans understand why we do what we do – it’s really the only way to build a meaningful long-term relationship.
The philosophy $$$ of Microsoft... Hope they won't destroy series like R&C.
Sony owns Ratchet & Clank. That's why EA isn't making those games. I think it's time for that series to go away a while anyway.
Hell no, i Love Ratchet & Clank a new generation game from them i will buy day 1, and im not talking about the all 4 one/etc/etc i mean like a Tools of Destruction/Crack in Time that's what i want.
I be content when they release a Ratchet & Clank Future collection. I can only hope they'll announce that hours later today.
People like Ted have no shame or respect for themselves, and it shows in their work. They tell/do one thing but as soon as the devil makes an offer based on lust for money they turn and put a knife in the back to those who were there for them when they were nothing. Same with kojima it's getting sickening watching him spread his legs all over Microsofts headquarters annually now, I don't care if you go multiplat but just don't parade yourself as some neutral dev when your clearly whoring yourself in favor of another.
Here should learn from what happened to the Abe games. They started out on the Playstation but then got bribed to switch to the Xbox. And did nothing. Now they're back to Sony. It seems like most companies that make a deal with Microsoft end up regretting it.
I've never been big fans of Insomniac. They've always been second fiddle to Guerilla, Naughty Dog and Santa Monica. I think they've lost their mojo lately.
The PlayStation gamers made Insomniac. This move is just a fuck you to us. Thank Insomniac I see how it is.
Translation: "Nobody wants us, so thank God for M$".
Whatever ms payed them it was to much, after fuse they would have went lower if they did it now.
You need to go to their site and read the comment section. I feel bad for the most long running fans of Insomniac.
First Fuse and now THIS ?!
Bungie is still working with MS, but they will be at the Sony Conference in four hours won't they.
Not only that but they are offering Sony exclusive DLC for Destiny. Give and take, I suppose...
Lol exclusive DLC is different then an entire freaking game hahaha. We'll still get destiny, but you won't get sunset overdrive xD.
But i will get to play Destiny on my Vita through remote play.
@Gildarts it's not like the game looks ALL that great. all yous saw was a cinematic gameplay trailer. PS: Fairy Tail is horrible. Just like your comment.
Some of you guys seem furstrated. Wonder why...
I think it's a shame, I thought Insomniac going multiplatform would be a good move, and now would be the best time to do it - given that we've moved to a standardised PC architecture.
Insomniac facebook page is full of "TRAITORS" and "SELL OUT" comments on Sunset game announcement. first Fuse and now this. it will be interesting what will happen in few years
Feel really bad for Insomniac. Their very large fan base just happens to be majority Sony console owners. I wish them the best .. but it seem that the Team reached hard and is now bearing the very hard brunt of their actions.
Is anyone really that upset that this game is exclusive? And I'm speaking specifically to Ratchet/Resistance fans. I mean, look at Fuse and how Insomniac made the last 2 Ratchets and R3's multiplayer with a foot out the door. The quality of Fuse suffered right along with the 3 other games they where working on at their bloated studios. What are you really missing here? As for their new game. They have no fanbase on Xbox and if it were not for EA taking a dive and needing cash, this thing would be multiplat and gamers on both the Xbone and PS4 would be ignoring it together.
Its going to be rough for them. Considering Fuse; we know the game will not get marketed. I have an Idea! ... when all this pass; How about Insomniac make R4 :) Oh.... how am I kidding.... :(
I'm not upset it's exclusive, to me it's just the final nail in Insomniac's own coffin. Between lacklustre Ratchet games and Fuse being awful and the fact Sony really do not seem interested in even dealing with the studio anymore. There was a rumour that they didn't even get PS4 dev kits. I think Sony just had enough of them half-assing Ratchet, to be honest, meaning their only choice was to go to whoever would have them, Microsoft just had the biggest pockets. Make no mistake though, it's no great loss to PS platforms. Sony still own the Ratchet and Resistance IPs and, if they can be bothered, there's devs who would jump at the chance to make the games Insomniac have no interest in making. I think the IP ownership nonsense just hits a lot harder because of it though.
Game looked medicore to me. Its not my style of game. looks very old school Dreamcast arcady. Ill still play it and ill probably like it but the trailer did nothing for me. Looked very XBLA/PSN type game.
I don't really want it but what Ted Price said was stupid. The game could be done better on the PS4. He should just come out and say Microsoft bribed me so I took their money.
Just wait and see this game take a new direction. Could be overstrike all over again.
ted price is a sell out. Nothing more.
"Only possible on X1" Dont mind them doing a exclusive for MS but for Ted to say that felt like a stab in the heart, there was no need to say something like that as we all know PS4 and even the Wii U could handle the game. Its comments like that which changes gamers minds wether they buy it or not, if I buy a xbone i will skip there game because of that comment.
Not that serious.
you build up your entire loyal fan base, then you leave your loved franchises to make a generic shooter, then completely abandon them for a different console....weird
After all those fans that they had garned over the years, they turn around and basically tell them: "Sorry, but dat money, b*tches!" What a sell-out.
Insomniac really did fall from grace these past years. Hard to think naughty dog and insomniac were once equals.
Naughty Dog was smart. They let Sony buy them. Now they're guaranteed lots of work and don't have to worry about the financial side. It's hard to be a private developer now. Insomniac going with EA wasn't good either. They seem to be jealous of the big games that sell a lot more. Is that what they think they need to be considered one of the best?
Understand what you do? I don't understand why you made Fuse.
Game looked really neat welcome to the family insomniac.
